Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
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.
