Foam: A General Purpose Cellular Monte Carlo Event Generator†

  title={Foam: A General Purpose Cellular Monte Carlo Event Generator†},
  author={S. Jadach},
A general purpose, self-adapting, Monte Carlo (MC) event generator (simulator) is described. The high efficiency of the MC, that is small maximum weight or variance of the MC weight is achieved by means of dividing the integration domain into small cells. The cells can be n-dimensional simplices, hyperrectangles or Cartesian product of them. The grid of cells, called “foam”, is produced in the process of the binary split of the cells. The choice of the next cell to be divided and the position… CONTINUE READING
