|Note: this is a new version of both the exercises and associated template files. If you have been using a version from before 22 October, 2001, or tar archives up to simple3a.tgz, you should download the latest version of the files. The old exercises and tar archives are now accessible at http://nucleus.usask.ca/Geant/Exercises_old if you wish to continue using them.|
The following exercises are intended to introduce new users of GEANT to some of the basic methods of using this simulation package, and to introduce new students to some basic concepts in experimental subatomic physics. It will probably take about a week for beginners to do all but the advanced exercises.
In addition, most of the files used
for these exercises are intended as a template for general use.
The gzip'd tar archive of the template files can be downloaded from
