The project involves the development of MUSCLE (MUonS Cascade at Low Energy), a collection of programs written in C++ and Mathematica to numerically simulate the passage of low energy muon beams through crystals. Monte Carlo methods employing binary collision approximation calculations and appropriate molecular dynamics algorithms are implemented to construct the trajectories and determine the spatial distribution of stopped muons in single crystals. Channeling of muon particles along certain crystal planes are also found. Binary collision approximation and molecular dynamics algorithms are compared and the possible effect of channeling is discussed.
