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.

This was done some time ago, but the whole application and strategy is discussed in this paper (in particular section 2): http://arxiv.org/abs/1302.2963
You can see how it was actually done in a simple program because some applications where I implemented the custom "billiard ball" physics are available here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/geant4vacmod/files/
The one called "cavity" is the simplest, so I suggest checking that one out. As you can see, the interactions are specified in an implimentation of G4VDiscreteProcess.
The experts I talked to were local at SLAC - I don't think they monitor these forums.

Can you enlighten further, or put me in touch with this expert. I am looking at the examples as suggested by I. Ivanchenko, but I presume it was not I. Ivanchenko who directly advised you as he responded to your posting much later. > > Many thanks Chris Walker >
