I'm not sure which forum is best to put this in, so I'm trying it here.
I have not changed any code, but the answers I'm getting back are substantially different than ones I was running last week. My code is saved through an internal git, so I worked my way back through commits with several known working ones and am still getting the different results.
My code is based on the basic 3 example.
To exemplify the difference, in a run of 1,000,000 particles (which had been enough to converge the solution) would result in 43.2GeV and 42.8GeV on two detectors. Now those same detectors read 46.7GeV and 43.5GeV, respectively. The former had matched experimental results, and the latter are about 8 times larger.
I am trying to figure out what could possibly change the results like this. The solution had been working for 2 weeks before this large change happened. There had been several computer restarts, so I do not think it could be a change in the random number seed.
Side Note: May be related or not, but I was getting an error where using cmath's abs function resulted in a negative number when dividing by eV
abs((anodeEnergy - cathodeEnergy) / eV)
But now that error doesn't happen and I can't reproduce it, so I'm not sure if it is related.
