Thanks for replying to me. Actually I am not a newcomer and I have been using Geant4 for multiple years.

I think you are talking about simply run the reaction multiple times and only pick up the reactions which are interested to me. However, there will be a problem with this approach: the efficiency will be extremely low, <1%. I will be waiting forever to collect any useful information. So is there any way I can boost the cross section for some specific reactions?

Previously, what I have been doing is within one reaction, I shoot the beam first then randomly guessed where the reaction should happen, manually calculate the energies and angles for reaction products. Then just shoot the reaction products in the second run. This approach is very awkward in programming. It is non-readable for any other people using my code. That is why I am trying to do more hacking thing.
