MonteCUBES makes use of the GLoBES software so that the existing experiment definitions for GLoBES, describing long baseline and reactor experiments, can be used with MonteCUBES. MonteCUBES consists of two main parts: The first is a C library, written as a plug-in for GLoBES, implementing the Marko... Title of program: MonteCUBES (Monte Carlo Utility Based Experiment Simulator). Catalogue Id: AEFJ_v1_0 Nature of problem Since neutrino masses do not appear in the standard model of particle physics, many models of neutrino masses also induce other types of new physics, which could affect the outcome of neutrino oscillation experiments. In general, these new physics imply large dimensional parameter spaces that are difficult to explore using classical methods such as multi-dimensional projections and minimisations, such as those used in GLoBES [1, 2].
