Hi, my first message here so welcome to everybody. I want to create a particle source based on CR data. For that I created a pdf distribution for each element between H and Fe, where the x axis of the histogram is an energy and the y is a flux (see attached file). Now I am adding these histograms to a source as follow (example for two first elements) /gps/pos/type Surface /gps/pos/shape Sphere /gps/pos/centre 0. 3.5 0. cm /gps/pos/radius 7 cm /gps/ang/type cos /gps/particle proton /gps/ene/type Arb /gps/hist/type arb /gps/hist/file cards_gps_CR/1H.txt /gps/hist/inter Lin /gps/source/add 1.0 /gps/pos/type Surface /gps/pos/shape Sphere /gps/pos/centre 0. 3.5 0. cm /gps/pos/radius 7 cm /gps/ang/type cos /gps/particle ion /gps/ion 2 4 /gps/ene/type Arb /gps/hist/type arb /gps/hist/file cards_gps_CR/4He.txt /gps/hist/inter Lin However, the command /gps/source/add <intensity> with a parameter 1 which I set for every source normalizes distributions to the same intensity. As I mentioned, my histograms already are scaled in flux so they are could be interpreted as real PDF. Is it possible to add the source in a way that it keeps the intensity from the histogram definition and is not renormalized? Or the only way is to recalculate the integral of the histograms and normalize them manually?
