Question Creating process name mismatched 

Forum: Physics List
Date: 05 Jun, 2012
From: Trung Le <Trung Le>

Dear experts,

I saw this interesting feature during detector simulation and I could produce it with examples/novice/ExN02 with minimal modifications. Specifically, I changed to the QGSP_BERT physics list and added a user tracking action class to print out all tracked particles. For mu- with kinetic energy of 0.5 MeV in the center of the detector, I saw that the daughter list from the mu- is consistent with a mu- decay, i.e., nu_mu + anti_nu_e + e-, but the creating process name (track->GetCreatorProcess()->GetProcessName()) is muMinusCaptureAtRest! I understand that mu- could decay or get captured depending on where it stopped, but the creating process name seems inconsistent with the used physics process.

I also tried turning off the muMinusCaptureAtRest process using /process/inactive muMinusCaptureAtRest in the macro, then track->GetCreatorProcess()->GetProcessName() correctly gave the process name as 'Decay'

Machine info:

Debian Squeeze 64-bit on AMD, gcc 4.4.5, GEANT4.9.4.p02

Regards,

Trung
