DEFINITIONS

 The FLUKA  software  ("FLUKA")  means  the  fully  integrated
 particle  physics  Monte Carlo  simulation  software  package
 being developed since 1989, available from the official FLUKA
 website  (http://www.fluka.org)  and authorised mirror sites.
 FLUKA is made up of FLUKA core code and FLUKA User Routines.

 The FLUKA Copyright Holders means both CERN and INFN.

 FLUKA User Routines means the set of subroutines collected in
 the usermvax  section  of  FLUKA  and  forming  part  of  the
 standard distribution of FLUKA.

 The Licensee  means  any  person acting individually within a
 non-profit organisation, exercising any permission granted by
 this license.


LICENSE GRANT

1.

 Subject to the  terms  and  conditions  of this license,  the
 FLUKA  Copyright  Holders  herewith  grant to the  Licensee a
 worldwide,  non-exclusive,  royalty-free,  source  and object
 code  license  to  use  and  reproduce   FLUKA  for  internal
 scientific non commercial non-military purposes only.
 Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Licensee shall not execute
 FLUKA in a manner that produces an output whose contents  are
 directly useable or easily employable to simulate the physics
 models embedded within FLUKA in a generic manner,  or  excise
 portions of  FLUKA source or object code,  and  execute  them
 independently of FLUKA.  Extracting specific isolated results
 from any of the individual internal  physics  models embedded
 within FLUKA is not permitted. Permitted use and reproduction
 are referred to below as "Use".

2.

 Modification (including translation)  of  FLUKA,  in whole or
 in part,  is not permitted,  except for modification of FLUKA
 User  Routines that do not  circumvent,  replace,  add to  or
 modify any of the functions of the FLUKA core code. Permitted
 modifications are referred to below as "Modifications".

3.

 FLUKA is  licensed for  Use by the  Licensee  only,  and  the
 Licensee shall not market,  distribute,  transfer, license or
 sub-license, or in any way make available  ("Make Available")
 FLUKA  or  Modifications,  in  whole  or  in  part,  to third
 parties, without prior written permission. The Licensee shall
 not assign or transfer this license.

4.

 Notwithstanding section 3,  the Licensee may  Make  Available
 his Modifications  of  FLUKA User Routines  to third  parties
 under these license conditions.

5.

 The  Licensee  shall  not insert FLUKA code or Modifications,
 in whole or  in  part, into other codes without prior written
 permission.

6.

 Any use of FLUKA outside the scope of this license is subject
 to prior written permission.


GRANT BACK

7.

 The   Licensee   shall   in  a  timely   fashion   notify  to
 fcc@fluka.org  any  Modifications carried out by him.  Except
 for  Authors,  Collaborators,  and  employees  of  the  FLUKA
 Copyright Holders, the copyright in whose Modifications shall
 automatically be vested in  the FLUKA Copyright Holders,  the
 Licensee  herewith  grants  the  FLUKA  Copyright  Holders  a
 perpetual,  royalty- free,   irrevocable   and  non-exclusive
 license to his Modifications, with no limitation of use.  The
 Licensee acknowledges that the  FLUKA  Copyright  Holders may
 insert  such  Modifications into future  releases  of  FLUKA,
 subject  to  appropriate  acknowledgment  of  the  Licensee's
 contribution.

8.

 The Licensee  shall report as soon as practical any errors or
 bugs found in any portion of FLUKA to fluka-discuss@fluka.org


PUBLICATIONS AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

9.

 The Licensee shall explicitly acknowledge his use of FLUKA in
 any publication or communication,  scientific  or  otherwise,
 relating to such use,  by  citing the FLUKA set of references
 (http://www.fluka.org, see below)  and  the  FLUKA  copyright
 notice.

10.

 The  Licensee  shall ensure that the FLUKA set of references,
 the  FLUKA  copyright notice and these license conditions are
 not altered or removed from FLUKA and that all embodiments of
 FLUKA  and  Modifications  contain  in  full the FLUKA set of
 references,  the FLUKA  copyright  notice,  and these license
 conditions.

11.

 Any insertion of FLUKA code or Modifications,  in whole or in
 part,  into other codes with permission under section 5 shall
 preserve the  FLUKA set of references,  the  FLUKA  copyright
 notice  and  these  license  conditions in the  FLUKA code or
 Modifications concerned, and must also reproduce these within
 any  additional  global  notices included  along  or embedded
 within  the  software  into  which  the  FLUKA  code  or  the
 Modifications have been integrated, in whole or in part.  Any
 part of  the FLUKA code  or  Modifications so  inserted shall
 continue to be subject to these license conditions.

12.

 Publication   of  any  results  of  comparisons  of  specific
 internal physics models  extracted from FLUKA with permission
 under  section 6  with  data or with other codes or models is
 subject to prior written permission.

13.

 Contributions  to  any formal code comparisons and validation
 exercises pertaining to FLUKA, sponsored by recognised bodies
 or   within  the  framework  of  recognised  conferences  and
 workshops, are subject to prior written permission.

14.

 DISCLAIMER  FLUKA  IS PROVIDED BY THE FLUKA COPYRIGHT HOLDERS

 ANY LIABILITY, INCLUDING CLAIMS BY THIRD PARTIES, IN RELATION
 TO SUCH USE.

16.

 This  license  shall  terminate  with  immediate  effect  and
 without  notice  if  the Licensee fails to comply with any of
 the terms of  this license,  or  if  the  Licensee  initiates
 litigation against any of the  FLUKA Copyright Holders or any
 contributors with regard to FLUKA.  It  shall  also terminate
 with immediate effect from the date on which a new version of
 FLUKA  becomes  available.  In either case sections 14 and 15
 above shall  continue  to apply to any  Use  or Modifications
 made under these license conditions.

FLUKA2011 MANUAL

IMPORTANT WARNING FOR THE USERS

This manual is a reference tool for preparing input for the FLUKA particle transport code. It is not complete and it is not guaranteed to be free from errors. It is continually evolving just as the code does. It should not be cited: the proper references to be cited in any recent work related to FLUKA are listed above (see also the list of References in (17)). In using the code, the user agrees on the authorship and copyright and hence is bound to quote the above references.

Please note also that early versions of the FLUKA hadronic event generator as implemented in other codes (in particular GEANT) should be referenced as such (e.g. GEANT-FLUKA) and not as FLUKA. They have little in common with the present version and should be considered virtually obsolete. The proper reference to GEANT-FLUKA is Fas93a.

Some parts of the manual must be "enriched": output etc.; the part on auxiliary programs must be updated.

Please refer to fasso@slac.stanford.edu / Alfredo.Ferrari@cern.ch for any comment or criticism on this manual and/or the code.
