Here’s an interesting guide on how to install software for probability simulations for protons
Because of my research project, I need to use geant4 to do simulation on protons. I am a beginner in GEANT4 but I manage to install it on my MacBook. Here just writing down the necessary procedures for future reference.
I am using a MacBook Pro Retina with 128 Gb harddisk. Hence I need to clear up some space before I install Linux and GEANT4. I recommend using some software like DaisyDisk to effectively find those large files that eat up all your space in you Mac.
The procedure of running geant4 in your MacBook is very straight-forward and as follows (or possibly can do the same in Windows, haven’t test it yet though)
- Download VMWare Fusion 8 (Don’t use virtualbox, You will see why later)
- Download Ubuntu 14.04 (You can download the iso file from the official website)
- Ubuntu 14.04 Setup
- Pre-requisite for installing GEANT4
- build essential:
- sudo apt-get install build-essential

I liked the first one and then got lazy … Continue reading What can Dyson tell us about success?
