For today unfortunatelly we have the only approach - effective charge,
which means that we force charge of an ion to be equal to its mean value
depending on its velocity, assuming charge equilibrium between ion and
media. We know that it is limiting a possibility to describe beams in
vacuum or low dense materials and plan to change the situation but not
earlier than at the end of the year.
