I wrote the first version of the code to simulate small-angle scattering for the Milagro simulation. There, we had few measurements on the fraction of scattering at different very-forward (~0deg) and very-backward (~180deg) angles. From those measurements, I made up some guesstimates of the forward-backward asymmetry (fraction of ~0deg and ~180deg scatterings that happen at ~0degs), and from the shape of the scattering-angle distribution I figured out some values for g_f and g_b that reproduced our few measurements. Helpful in those calculations was MiePlot (http://www.philiplaven.com/mieplot.htm) and the fact that g_f and g_b are the average cosines of the scattering angles (Note: for backward scattering subtract 180deg from the scattering angle). In Milagro simulation we had g_f and g_b set at 0.999 (i.e., only a slight deviation from an 0 or 180deg scattering angle) and the asymmetry at 0.90 (i.e., mostly forward).
Here is an email sent privately by Xin Qian (xqian caltech edu) to Peter and me:
The way I do it is the following:
1. figure out the property of the material.
2. go to the web calculation to get the Mie scattering distribution (also probably strength)
3. Fit the distribution with the approximation H-G (then the parameters coming out the fit are those parameters)
4. Put it into GEANT.
Hope this helps,
