NEUT is a neutrino–nucleus interaction simulation program library. It can be used to simulate interactions for neutrinos with between 100 MeV and a few TeV of energy. NEUT is also capable of simulating hadron interactions within a nucleus and is used to model nucleon decay and hadron–nucleus interactions for particle propagation in detector simulations. This article describes the range of interactions modelled and how each is implemented.
