Dear Geant4 experts,
I am looking into possible ways to use the Geant4 error propagation package ( Geant4e ) in a multi-threaded reconstruction framework.
As of now, a lot of the state of the track propagation is held in global objects:
G4ErrorPropagatorData::GetErrorPropagatorData() provides access to a static variable, which holds various configuration options of the track propagation, for example the desired target surface.
Furthermore, G4ErrorPropagatorManager::GetErrorPropagatorManager() is used to access the static object which performs the actual propagation via multiple method calls. Please see the example code in  for a typical list of calls.
Usage of the G4 error propagation is made during the track reconstruction from within the experiment's framework. In a multi-threaded framework, multiple tracks are reconstrcted concurrenly which implies the G4 error propogation is also used in this manner. As far as I can tell, this seems not to be possible at the moment, due to the static variables involved.
What is the recommended recipe to use G4 error propogation in such an environment ?
Thanks, Thomas Hauth
