Barlow, Roger, Appleby, R., Molson, J., Owen, H. and Toader, A. (2011) The MERLIN Simulation Program: New Features used in Studies of the LHC Collimation System using MERLIN. In: Proceedings of Particle Accelerator Conference 2011. PAC 11 . JACoW, New York, USA, pp. 2312-2314.

We present recent developments in the MERLIN particle
tracking simulation code, originally developed at DESY.
We have implemented differential scattering cross-sections
based on a pomeron exchange model interpolated over experimental
measurement data, and show that this model is
important at the small scattering angles generated in the
LHC collimators. Preliminary comparisons with previous
simulations are presented.
