Member Function Documentation

void calculateD ( vector< HelicityParticle > &  p)
inlinevirtual

Calculate the decay matrix for a particle.

Calculate a particle's decay matrix.

Reset the D matrix to zero.

Initialize the wave functions.

Create the helicity vectors.

Call the recursive sub-method.

Normalize the decay matrix.

Reimplemented from HelicityMatrixElement.

void calculateRho ( unsigned int  idx,
vector< HelicityParticle > &  p 
)
inlinevirtual

Calculate the density matrix for a particle.

Calculate a particle's helicity density matrix.

Reset the rho matrix to zero.

Initialize the wave functions.

Create the helicity vectors.

Call the recursive sub-method.

Normalize the density matrix.

Reimplemented from HelicityMatrixElement.

double decayWeight ( vector< HelicityParticle > &  p)
inlinevirtual

Calculate the matrix element weight for a decay.

Calculate a decay's weight.

Initialize the wave functions.

Create the helicity vectors.

Call the recursive sub-method.

Reimplemented from HelicityMatrixElement.

double decayWeightMax ( vector< HelicityParticle > &  p)
inlinevirtual

Return the maximum decay weight for the helicity matrix element.

Determine the maximum on-diagonal element of rho.

Determine the maximum off-diagonal element of rho.

Reimplemented from HMETauDecay.

void initWaves ( vector< HelicityParticle > &  p)
inlinevirtual

Initialize wave functions for the helicity matrix element.

Base class for all tau decay matrix elements. This class derives from the HelicityMatrixElement class and redefines some of the virtual functions. One new method, initHadronicCurrent is defined which initializes the hadronic current in the initWaves method. For each tau decay matrix element the hadronic current method must be redefined accordingly, but initWaves should not be redefined.

Reimplemented from HMETauDecay.
