Detailed Description

The RHadrons class contains the routines for the production and decay of long-lived heavy coloured particles.

Member Function Documentation

bool decay ( Event event)

Decay R-hadrons.

Decay R-hadrons by resolving them into string systems and letting the heavy unstable particle decay as normal.

Loop over R-hadrons to decay.

Find flavour content of squark or gluino R-hadron.

Sharing of momentum: the squark/gluino should be restored to original mass, but error if negative-mass spectators.

Squark: new colour needed in the breakup.

Store the constituents of a squark R-hadron.

Gluino: set mass sharing between two spectators.

Two new colours needed in the breakups.

Store the constituents of a gluino R-hadron.

Mark R-hadron as decayed and update history.

Set secondary vertex for decay products, but no lifetime.

End loop over R-hadron decays, based on velocity of squark.


bool givesRHadron ( int  id)

Tell whether a given particle is supposed to form R-hadrons.

Check if a given particle can produce R-hadrons.

bool init ( )

Initialization of R-hadron handling.

Main routine to initialize R-hadron handling.

Flags and parameters related to R-hadron formation and decay.

Check whether sbottom, stop or gluino should form R-hadrons.

Set nominal masses of sbottom R-mesons and R-baryons.

Set widths and lifetimes of sbottom R-hadrons.

Set nominal masses of stop R-mesons and R-baryons.

Set widths and lifetimes of stop R-hadrons.

Set nominal masses of gluino R-glueballs, R-mesons and R-baryons.

Set widths and lifetimes of gluino R-hadrons.


bool produce ( ColConfig colConfig,
Event event 

Produce R-hadrons.

Produce R-hadrons by fragmenting them off from existing strings.

Check whether some sparticles are allowed to hadronize.

Reset arrays and values.

Loop over event and identify hadronizing sparticles.

Done if no hadronizing sparticles.

Max two R-hadrons. Randomize order of processing.

Split a system with both a sparticle and a junction.

Open up a closed gluon/gluino loop.

Split up a colour singlet system that should give two R-hadrons.

Loop over R-hadrons to be formed. Find its colour singlet system.

For now don't handle systems involving junctions or loops.

Handle formation of R-hadron separately for gluino and squark.

End of loop over R-hadrons. Done.
