3 codes tutorial
report on the 3 codes tutorial organised at ESRF 3-5 June 2013
We organised a two days hands-on tutorial on three well established codes for simulating synchrotron radiation sources and beamline optics: McXtrace , SHADOW  and SRW . It was given by three instructors, Erik B. Knudsen (McXtrace), Manuel Sanchez del Rio (SHADOW) and Oleg Chubar (SWR), and was followed by 26 participants.
The material of the course (slides, software and related documents) can be found here:
