Hello, I think that source intensity normalization is not correct in gps, when we use /gps/source/add command. I will explain it in the following example : type :
By doing this, you would expect 2 sources with equal intensity, equal emission probability. Source 0 and source 1 have each 0.5 probability to occur.
But, in geant4.8.2, if you type above lines and then you type
you will get :
source 0 intensity is 0.0909
source 1 intensity is 0.909
which is wrong. The program normalizes the first intensity to 1 before it reads the second command, and then, the second source intensity is 10, compared to 1 for the first source, because it has been normalized. Then, the program normalized both intensity by 10+1=11. So the first source intensity is set to 1/11 and the second one to 10/11. I believe that it is a bug. Could you confirm please? If not, thank you to tell me where I am wrong.
