// This is a simple test program equivalent to main01.cc but using the
// Angantyr model for Heavy Ion collisions. It is still proton
// collisions, but uses the Angantyr impact parameter description to
// select collisions. It fits on one slide in a talk.  It studies the
// charged multiplicity distribution at the LHC.

// Optionally (by compiling with the flag -DRIVET and
// linking with rivet - see output of the command "rivet-config
// --cppflags --libs") it will send the event to Rivet for an ATLAS
// jet-analysis.
