Question SetMaxNumPhotonsPerStep? 

Forum: Processes Involving Optical Photons
Date: 27 Oct, 2017
From: Mark Chernikov <Mark Chernikov>

Hello everyone. There are some methods in G4Cerenkov class: 1) SetMaxNumPhotonsPerStep; 2) SetMaxBetaChangePerStep. Are these limitations physically reasonable, or is it done because of stack overflowing? And what if i want my physical model be maximally matched to the real physical processes. My purpose is to calculate cone angle. Therefore, it is important for me not to set any limitations (if it is not physically reasonable) on the number of generated cerenkov photons or at the maximum beta change per step. Should I in this case simply not call these methods and not set any value? Do I understand correctly that by default neither is limited? Thank you.
