The FastCaloSim calorimeter simulation was developed to provide a reasonably accurate but still fast simulation of the ATLAS calorimeter system. Parameterizations of electromagnetic and hadronic calorimeter showers are used to deposit particle energies in the detailed calorimeter structure. In the present document a short overview of the fast calorimeter simulation principle is presented. This is followed by a comparison of individual particle signatures and event properties to the full Geant 4 based ATLAS detector simulation.
