Micrographs of energetic particles in nuclear emulsion are simulated by computing the spatial distribution of developed grains with the δ-ray theory of track structure, and representing the developed grains by points of light on an IBM 2250 visual display unit. The simulated tracks display many of the features of actual track structure and serve as a visual comparison between experiment and theory,
