- libamtrack provides computational routines for the prediction of
- libamtrack is designed for research in proton and ion dosimetry and radiotherapy.
- libamtrack also provides many auxiliary physics routines for the work with proton and ion beams.
- A reference database (bibtex format) of publications related to detector response or cell survival in ion beams is located under /docs/references (see Documentation and Support).
- With libamtrack there comes a number of tools that can also be applied in different fields:
- A suite of scripts that help to automatically create bindings to a shared library (/tools/automatic_wrapper_generator)
- AmTrackService, a webservice that can provide functionalities of a shared library over the web (/tools/webgui)
- libamtrack is designed as a shared program library.
- It is written in ANSI C (GNU99 standard) to work both under POSIX systems (Linux, Mac OS X) as well as Windows.
- It uses GNU autotools for compilation.
- Its sources are hosted on using svn version control.
