The lecture series introduces C++ on a level needed to use C++ based frameworks or toolkits for experimental high energy and nuclear physics like ROOT, Geant4, VMC or Go4. The main topics are:
  • General introduction to C++ for programmer. No introduction to programming! Knowledge of at least one programming language is highly recommended.
  • Root introduction and advanced techniques. Prerequisite is the knowledge of C++.
  • Introduction to simulation packages: Virtual Monte Carlo, Geant4. Prerequisite is the knowledge of C++.
  • ...
The lecture program in detail will evolve and can be influenced by the needs of the participants. Feel free to propose topics at TopicList.
