Hi,

I am using novice exampleN04 to simulate production of muons. I am using PYTHIA as my event generator and have .data files with 10,000 events. I have a macro called run.mac in which I have the command run/beamOn xxx. I have set this event number to 10, 100, 500 and 1,000 but GEANT does not appear to execute the correct number of events. For example, I get the follwing number of muons for each number of events:

10 events : 4,622 muons

100 events : 28,284 muons

500 events : 95,690 muons

1,000 events : 95,690 muons

It appears to me that GEANT is probably doing somewhere between 100 and 500 events and then just stopping (with no error message). My question is : is there somewhere in GEANT that limits the number of events that can be processed in this way?

Thanks, Stephanie
