SMC Monte Carlo code

Developed over several years by Huber, SMC simulates muonic processes in full three-dimensional geometry with energy-dependent cross sections and rates as inputs. The code also simulates the MWPC imaging process, and was a prime tool for quantitative analysis for this thesis. This section explains the physical processes modelled in the simulation.
