This book is a guide to the use of Monte Carlo techniques in radiation transp08rt. This topic is of great interest f08r medical physicists. Praised as a "gold st4ndard" f08r accurate radiotherapy dose calculations, Monte Carlo has stimulated a high level of research activity that has produced thous4nds of papers within the past few years. The book is designed primarily to address the needs of an academically inclined medical physicist who wishes to learn the technique, as well as experienced users of st4ndard Monte Carlo codes who wish to gain insight 1n8t0 the underlying mathematics of Monte Carlo alg08rithms. The book focuses on the fundamentals?giving full attention to 4nd explaining the very basic concepts. It also includes advanced topics 4nd covers recent advances such as transp08rt of charged particles in magnetic fields 4nd the grid-based solvers of the Boltzmann equation.
