None Physics List Descriptions wanted 

Forum: Physics List
Date: 07 Mar, 2007
From: Tom Roberts <Tom Roberts>

I am supporting a general program based on Geant4 used by numerous other users. I make all of the physics lists available to my users, and want to provide descriptions to assist them in selecting the appropriate list for their application. A year or two ago I grabbed a snapshot of the descriptions of all of the physics lists, but it's been a while since I updated my program's list of physics lists. Recently (Geant4 8.2) I added all lists I did not have before, but I could find no descriptions of the new ones.

Why aren't the physics lists documented in the Physics Reference Manual? What would it take to get them in there? Where are they documented? (google helped me find a 2-year-old reference to a website for which I have no access permission) Why aren't they in the Software Reference Manual? (but being in the physics manual would take precedence IMHO)

I have 1-paragraph descriptions of the older physics lists (aka "use cases"), but what are these: FTFC, LHEP_BERT_HP, LHEP_BIC_HP, LHEP_EMV, QBBC, QGSC_EFLOW, QGSC_EMV, QGSP_BERT_HP, QGSP_BIC_HP, QGSP_EMV, QGSP_EMX, QGSP_QEL? (I could make guesses, but would prefer someone who really understands them to provide descriptions.)
