BDSIM: Beamline simulation toolkit based on GEANT4

Abstract : BDSIM is a code that combines accelerator-style par- ticle tracking with traditional Geant-style tracking based on Runge-Kutta techniques. This approach means that particle beams can be tracked efficiently when inside the beampipe, while also enabling full Geant4 processes when beam-particles interact with beamline apertures. Tracking of the resulting secondary particles is automatic. The code is described, including a new MAD-style interface and new geometry description, and key performance parameters are listed.
