The PUMAS library is a transport engine for muon and tau leptons in matter. It can operate with a configurable level of details, from a fast deterministic CSDA mode to a detailed Monte Carlo simulation. A peculiarity of PUMAS is that it is revertible, i.e. it can run in forward or in backward mode. Thus, the PUMAS library is particularly well suited for muography applications. In the present document, we provide a detailed description of PUMAS, of its physics and of its implementation.
