Abstract

© 2015 IEEE. To study the performance of multi-threaded Geant4 for high-energy physics experiments, an application has been developed which generalizes and extends previous work. A highly-complex detector geometry is used for benchmarking on an Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor. In addition, an implementation of parallel I/O based on Intel SCIF and ROOT technologies is incorporated and studied.
