Question IncBoundaryAbsorption error 

Forum: Processes Involving Optical Photons
Date: 15 Jun, 2012
From: Steve Asztalos <Steve Asztalos>

Hi,

I'm modeling a scintillator crystal coupled to a PMT and borrowing heavily from examples ExN06 and LXe. My code compiles, runs briefly, but crashes at line 20 of PWUserEventInformation.hh (attached) as determined by ddd. The offending line IncBoundaryAbsorption called by PWSteppingActioncc (attached) merely increments a counter.

I am unable to find any reference to this line and wonder if anyone had some insight as to the origin of the error?

Thanks - Steve
