Incorporating dynamic motion in PENELOPE

Abstract : Purpose/Objective: The traditional way to take time into account in Monte Carlo (MC) simulations is to simulate individual static component fields separately and integrate the results. This method can be very efficient but leads to a high demand of phase space file storage. To avoid this, the position probability sampling (PPS) method, in which the position of a geometrical object is treated as a random variable during the simulation, has been developed. We aim here to incorporate this method in Penelope in the case of a virtual wedge.
