This book focusses on the state of the art of Monte Carlo methods in radiation physics and particle transport simulation and applications, the latter involving in particular, the use and development of electron--gamma, neutron--gamma and hadronic codes. Besides the basic theory and the methods employed, special attention is paid to algorithm development for modeling, and the analysis of experiments and measurements in a variety of fields ranging from particle to medical physics.Proceedings of the Monte Carlo 2000 Conference, Lisbon, 23-26 October 2000 Andreas Kling, Fernando J.C. Barao, Masayuki ... The deficiency in simulating the photopeak of aquot;K is possibly caused by incomplete removal in the experimental data of ... For thorium, deviations from experimental results occur in the continuum parts of the spectrum for energies roughly between 500 keV and 2.2 MeV.
