Note Ionization induced by Tau- and Tau+ particles

Hello everybody,

I have a question about the processes to be used to simulate ionization induced by Tau-(+) particles. I use the Geant4 version 9.1, but this process implementation should be valid also for the 9.2 version.

In the following, very useful, user-support page about processes to be applied to Tau-:

http://geant4.web.cern.ch/geant4/support/proc_mod_catalog/particles/leptons/tauminus.html

there are two possible ionization processes:

- G4hIonisation

- G4hLowEnergyIonisation

However the G4hIonisation process, as reported in

http://geant4.web.cern.ch/geant4/support/proc_mod_catalog/processes/electromagnetic/standard/G4hIonisation.html

can be applied only to charged hadrons. I suppose there is some kind of typo, but I don't understand if the G4hIonisation can actually be applied to Tau- and Tau+ particles. If not, which is the standard ionization process for these particles?

Thanks a lot for any reply! Valentina
