You're unlikely to get help here because yours is a detailed debugging exercise: its something that the writer of the code is in the best position to do. Most ray tracers don't use the thin lens formula at all: they encode Snell's law and assume functional forms for the lens surface. The point of intersection with the surface is then calculated (this can be ...

If you are just looking to simulate the data produced at the LHC then the right program to use is Madgraph. It is by far the most popular Monte Carlo generator to use for simulations at the LHC and can produce events for any process you want. Madgraph will then also invoke Pythia and PGS to simulate hadronization and detector simulations if you wish. There ...

Geant4 is probably the closest thing you could conceivably get. It's a detector simulation software package with a steep learning curve that's heavily used in the HEP community, and, as far as I know, is available for anyone to download and build. Full disclosure - I did HEP experiment once upon a time but that was 20+ years ago. So if someone currently ...
