  title={FLUKA: A Multi-Particle Transport Code},
  author={Alfredo Ferrari and Paola Sala and Milan Infn and A. Fasso and Johannes Ranft and University of Siegen},
This report describes the 2005 version of the Fluka particle transport code. The first part introduces the basic notions, describes the modular structure of the system, and contains an installation and beginner's guide. The second part complements this initial information with details about the various components of Fluka and how to use them. It concludes with a detailed history and bibliography.
