 Hello everyone, I am trying to understand how geant4 calculates the total deposited energy in a particular step. I am printing out the step's energy information, and trying to figure out the meaning of G4Track::GetTotalEnergyDeposit(). To do this, I calculate the change in kinetic energy between pre-step and post-step, and compare it to energy deposit. I find that in most cases -- but not always(!!) -- the two disagree. Unfortunately I can't find anything in Geant4's documentation on G4Track::GetTotalEnergyDeposit()... Can someone explain the following, or guide me to the relevant documentation? Below is a table of my results, to illustrate what I mean. For particle ID: 11=e-,22=gamma,2112=neutron,2212=proton.
