Modeling Ultra Peripheral Collisions

Joey Butterworth

Physics Department, Creighton University

Through the use of Monte Carlo methods, we are able to simulate electromagnetic interactions of nuclei that traveling by one another--Also known as ultra peripheral collisions. This presentation will give a brief look into Monte Carlo methods and how they are applied to the simulation of ultra peripheral collisions. Then we will compare how well of a job the simulations model actual data and look at how switching programming languages affects the simulation output.
