Question doubt about the Bertini Model in Geant4 

Keywords: Bertini model , PreCompound model

From: Katherin Shtejer Díaz <>

Hello everyone,

Please, I am needing to clarify the following question about Bertini Model. Can somebody assist me?:

When reading the Physics Reference Manual it is not clear for me, if the Bertini Model implementation in Geant4 includes the pre-equilibrium model (PE together with the INC) to support the energies below 200 MeV, or if I need to register some additional precompound model together with Bertini.

My doubt comes from the statement: "the model includes a Bertini intra-nuclear cascade with excitons". This suggests me that the p-h state after the INC stage could be explicitly defined to perform an acceptable interface with the pre-equilibrium phase. But which pre-equilibrium phase, some implemented inside the Model "Bertini-Geant4" or the precompound model registered by myself in the physics list?

I am simulating proton beams in the energy range 0 - 400 MeV and I would like to carry out some tests with the Bertini model from the Geant4 implementation.

Thanks in advance,
