Re: [fluka-discuss]: Estimators used in FLUKA

What "belonging of categories/estimation methods" are you referring to? Sorry,
I'm at a loss.

FLUKA offers many estimators: some are fluence-based, some are energy-deposition
quantities. Some quantities are direct, others are derived via folding with
coefficients etc.

Among the fluence estimators, you have the choice of volumetric, track-length or
collision averaging.

Learning materials (lectures, tutorials, manual, FAQ) for FLUKA clearly define
each estimator without ambiguity, with direct reference to physics principles.
The materials certainly present more than two fluence estimation methods.

Are you coming from the angle of a different code? Are you asking to relate
code-specific jargons for "categories/estimation methods"?
