Description of this data

The version 3.01 of ELMAG, a Monte Carlo program for the simulation of electromagnetic cascades initiated by high-energy photons and electrons interacting with extragalactic background light (EBL), is presented. Pair production and inverse Compton scattering on EBL photons as well as synchrotron losses are implemented using weighted sampling of the cascade development. New features include, among others, the implementation of turbulent extragalactic magnetic fields and the calculation of three-dimensional electron and positron trajectories, solving the Lorentz force equation. As final result of the three-dimensional simulations, the program provides two-dimensional source images as function of the energy and the time delay of secondary cascade particles.
