I think I am misunderstanding your response, because my naive interpretation doesn't seem right. Consider an event with a single energy deposit in a volume of 1 MeV, given by a particle with a weight of 0.1, are you suggesting to add a count to the bin at 100 keV?

I would think the thing to do in this situation would be to add 0.1 counts to the 1 MeV bin.

Of course that's a simple case: if there is another particle depositing 1 MeV with a weight of 0.2, or the weight changes during its transport through the volume, it's not clear to me how to accumulate the spectrum. Is there an approach (or reference) that covers this general case?
