Improved Monte Carlo modeling of radiation transport through stochastic media

Radiation propagation through stochastic material is an active topic in transport methods research. By definition, stochastic materials can be characterized only probabilistically, and range from uniform random mixtures (such as concrete) to mixtures with complicated clustering behavior (such as clouds). Modeling these mixtures accurately and efficiently presents a unique challenge for radiation transport codes.
