Title: X-ray simulation algorithms used in ISP

ISP is a simulation code which is sometimes used in the USNDS program. ISP is maintained by Sandia National Lab. However, the X-ray simulation algorithm used by ISP was written by scientists at LANL – mainly by Ed Fenimore with some contributions from John Sullivan and George Neuschaefer and probably others. In email to John Sullivan on July 25, 2016, Jill Rivera, ISP project lead, said β€œISP uses the function xdosemeters_sim from the xgen library.” The is a fortran subroutine which is also used to simulate the X-ray response in consim (a descendant of xgen). Therefore, no separate documentation of the X-ray simulation algorithms in ISP have been written – the documentation for the consim simulation can be used.
