None Guidance for Heavy Ion Collisions 

Forum: Physics List
Date: 14 Nov, 2012
From: Chris Flores <Chris Flores>

Hi All,

I'm attempting to study the effect of the beam halo (Au) at RHIC on the aluminum beam pipe in the STAR detector. I've looked around for examples of physics lists for heavy ion collisions, but I haven't been able to find any source files that specify what to turn on or off. For the moment I've decided to follow the physics list as done in the extended/analysis/A01 example that came with the install. However, so far as I can tell this does not use the INLC model that I've read is useful for heavy ion events.

As I'm (very) new to GEANT I'm seeking general guidance for how to accomplish the following: 1. model the Au nucleus' transit through the aluminum beam pipe 2. model the eventual interaction of the Au nucleus with the Al nucleus 3. model the transit of the nuclear (spectator) fragment's transit through the Al beam pipe 4. model possible secondary collisions the nuclear fragments may have in the beampipe

I'd appreciate any guidance you might have or examples that you could point me toward for an application such as this. In particular, I'd be interested in knowing how to implement the INLC Hadronic Model in a physics list.

Many Thanks for your thoughts! -Chris
