For a nice overview look at the Indico page of an RD51 simulation workshop.

Computes the electric field and potential in nearly arbitrary 3-dimensional geometries taking the presence of conductors and dielectric media into account: official website

Alternative to a Finite Element Method (FEM) tool like ANSYS where Poisson's equations can't be solved in a strict mathematical way.

FEM calculation tool to e.g. calculate electric field maps.

Garfield and Garfield++, the C++ portation.

Calculates the gas properties used by Garfield simulations: official website

Simulates particle interactions in a detector (with custom geometry and materials): official website

- These introductory slides from an MC-PAD training event on GEANT4 at DESY give a good introduction.
- There is a way to use the GEANT4 libraries within a Python environment: g4py. These two slides describe the functionality of this binding.

Addition to GEANT4 to correct calculations on interactions in noble gases (also in liquid phase), especially at low energies: official website

- GEANT4 simulation of the XAMS setup (Rolf)
- GEANT4 simulations for Tipsy (Annemarie)
- GEANT4 simulations for TPC
- GridPix (Wilco, Stergios)
- eletric fields and grid geometry
- electron transport in CO2/DME
