At the start of a run, Geant4 randomly generates a queue of event seeds. At the start of each event, a seed is popped from the queue and used to initialize the RNG. It is my understanding that Geant4 guarantees strong reproducibility. That is, given that I use a particular RNG and that I initialize in a particular way at the start of my program, I should always get the same output. It should not depend on the number of threads I run. From what I figure, the only way to guarantee this is to make sure that the output of a given event only depends on the event seed that was popped from the queue. Is this correct?
If so, then the number of outcomes is limited. If I use an unsigned 32 bit integer as the seed, I can get at most 2^32 unique events. Is this the case? What type does Geant4 use to store its seeds?
