GENIE Copyright Notices
GENIE is a suite of products (Generator, Comparisons, Tuning) for the experimental neutrino physics community. These products have different licenses.
GENIE / Generator
The Generator implements a modern software framework for neutrino Monte Carlo generators and state-of-the-art physics modules allowing the simulation of neutrino-nucleus interactions over a wide energy range for all neutrino species and nuclear targets. With a wealth of integrated tools such as flux drivers, detector geometry navigation drivers, generic event generation apps and specialised event generation apps for Fermilab, J-PARC and other experiments, the Generator supports neutrino interaction simulation for complex and realistic experimental setups.
Copyright © 2003-2015, The GENIE CollaborationThe Generator is an open source product distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPLv3).
The authors of the GENIE Generator are convinced of the benefits of distributing the source code of this product for scientific use. The license gives users considerable freedom and we expect you to use it wisely so that we can continue providing the source code. The license doesn't address issues specific to academic software and we include below an additional set of guidelines we expect you to follow. Please make sure that you observe the MCNET guidelines for fair academic usage.
GENIE / Comparisons
The Comparisons include extensive curated archives of neutrino, charged-lepton and hadron-nucleus scattering data, as well as software to produce a comprehensive set of data/MC comparisons.
Copyright © 2003-2015, The GENIE Collaboration, All rights reservedThe Comparisons package is not publicly distributed.
The package, in whole or in parts, can be made available to experiments under a special agreement.
GENIE / Tuning
The Tuning implements a neutrino generator tuning framework and includes applications implementing the GENIE tuning procedure.
Copyright © 2003-2015, The GENIE Collaboration, All rights reservedThe Tuning package is not publicly distributed, although selected results are made available to the community as GENIE tunes implemented in the Generator package.
