Fieguth, T., Barlow, Roger and Kozanecki, W. (2005) Modeling Lost-Particle Backgrounds in PEP-II Using Lpturtle. In: Particle accelerator conference, 16-20th May 2005, Knoxville, Tennessee.

Background studies during the design, construction, commissioning, operation and improvement of BaBar and PEP-II have been greatly influenced by results from a program referred to as LPTURTLE (Lost Particle TURTLE) which was originally conceived for the purpose of studying gas background for SLC. This venerable program is still in use today. We describe its use, capabilities and improvements and refer to current results now being applied to BaBar.
