Detailed Description

The MiniStringFragmentation class contains the routines to fragment occasional low-mass colour singlet partonic systems, where the string approach is not directly applicable (for technical reasons).

Member Function Documentation

bool fragment ( int  iSub,
ColConfig colConfig,
Event event,
bool  isDiff = false,
bool  systemRecoil = true 

Do the fragmentation: driver routine.

Junction topologies not yet considered - is very rare.

Read in info on system to be treated.

Do not want diffractive systems to easily collapse to one particle.

First try to produce two hadrons from the system.

If this fails, then form one hadron and shuffle momentum.

If also this fails, try to produce two hadrons with lower mass.

If also this fails, try to form a hadron with lower mass.

For low-energy systems may also search for a single hadron recoiler.

Else complete failure.

void init ( StringFlav flavSelPtrIn,
StringPT pTSelPtrIn,
StringZ zSelPtrIn 

Initialize and save pointers.

Save pointers.

Calculation and definition of hadron space-time production vertices.

Charm and bottom quark masses used for space-time offset.

Initialize the MiniStringFragmentation class proper.

Initialize the b parameter of the z spectrum, used when joining jets.
