Abstract: ArtG4 is a generic Geant4 based simulation framework on top of the ART Framework that a summer student and I wrote last summer. Though written for the Fermilab Muon g-2 experiment, it is completely generic and may be of interest to other experiments in need of a simulation program or with existing monolithic hard to maintain Geant4 code. Muon g-2 has recently finished porting its simulation program to ArtG4 and will use it to both simulate muons in the g-2 storage ring as well as test beam scenarios, all with the same code. ArtG4 allows for a plug-and-play environment for building a simulation with detector and Geant4 action modules. Discussed in this seminar will be the motivation for writing the framework, its design and implementation, its use at Muon g-2 and perhaps other experiments, and the special features of ART that make this system especially easy for writing and maintaining simulation code.
Adam is a member of the Fermilab Muon g-2 and D0 collaborations. He heads the Data Handing Group in the Scientific Computing Division Running Experiments Department and leads the computing and simulation efforts for the Muon g-2 experiment.
