You may wish to read through section 3.7 of the Application Developer's Guide. Biasing assigns a weight (not equal to 1.) to each track, in such a way that making a _weighted_ histogram of a track quantity should result in the same distribution of that quantity as you would get from the unbiased (analogue) simulation. The weight may also be used as part of the biasing process (see "weight window" and "weight roulette" in section 3.7).

When tracks produce secondaries, the track weight is passed on to those secondaries as well.
