If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.

Do I understand that you are referring to the G4BinaryLightIonReaction, as described at http://geant4.web.cern.ch/geant4/support/proc_mod_catalog/models/hadronic/G4BinaryLightIonReaction.html in the process catalog? There's a warning on that webpage saying that it should not be applied for projectile nuclei with A > 12 unless the target material has A < 13; is that limitation still applicable in Geant4 version 9.4?
Also, I note in the physics list builder G4IonBinaryCascadePhysics.cc, where G4BinaryLightIonReaction is used (and thereby added into the QBBC physics list - I can't find where it's added in QGSP_BIC), that the GenericIon() has this process registered from 0 to 20 GeV, but nothing is registered above that energy for an inelastic process. However, when I run well above 20 GeV (I'm looking at cosmic-ray heavy ions up to 100 GeV/nuc), I don't get the "no model found" crash in ChooseHadronicInteraction that Stella does. What process is taking over in that physics list for GenericIons at higher energies? (I'm using the physics list from the medical_linac example with macro command "/physic/addPackage QBBC", for definiteness.)
