Question G4GeneralParticleSource confusion 

Keywords: random particle generation G4GeneralParticleSource
Forum: Particles

From: Mark <>

Hello all,

I just had a question about design. Why does the G4GeneralParticleSource class go to the effort of checking for confinement? It generates a random point within a space defined by a certain volume, and rotates/translates to the volumes center. It seems as though (by design), such a randomly gnerated point should lie within the specified volume.

Any insight would be of interest.
