Simulation HOWTOS


STARSIM is the legacy simulation package in STAR, implemented in FORtran, MORtran and utilizing GEANT3 as the concrete MC package.    For documentation on how to run simulations using STARSIM, see

The simulation group is evolving the framework towards using Virtual Monte Carlo.  As a first step, we have implemented a new event generator framework which will be compatible with the future VMC application.  The new framework allows us to run jobs within root4star.  In order to run simulations in the new framework, see
