Detailed Description

The BoseEinstein class shifts the momenta of identical particles relative to each other, to simulate Bose-Einstein effects to some approximation.

Member Function Documentation

bool init ( )

Find settings. Precalculate table used to find momentum shifts.

Main flags.

Shape of Bose-Einstein enhancement/suppression.

Multiples and inverses (= "radii") of distance parameters in Q-space.

Masses of particles with Bose-Einstein implemented.

Pair pi, K, eta and eta' masses for use in tables.

Loop over the four required tables. Local variables.

Step size and number of steps in normal table.

Construct normal table recursively in Q space.

Step size and number of steps in compensation table.

Construct compensation table recursively in Q space.


bool shiftEvent ( Event event)

Perform Bose-Einstein corrections on an event.

Reset list of identical particles.

Loop over all hadron species with BE effects.

Properties of current hadron species.

Loop through event record to store copies of current species.

Loop through pairs of identical particles and find shifts.

Must have at least two pairs to carry out compensation.

Shift momenta and recalculate energies.

Iterate compensation shift until convergence.

Error if no convergence, and then return without doing BE shift. However, not grave enough to kill event, so return true.

Store new particle copies with shifted momenta.
