class AbstractAccelerationModule : public Module
Core functionallity for acceleration by scattering with scatter centers moving in a velocity field.
The velocity field is implicity implemented in the derived classes for performance reasons. Models for the dependence of the step length of the scatter process are set via modifiers.
AbstractAccelerationModule(double _stepLength = 1. * parsec)
The parent’s constructor need to be called on initialization!
virtual Vector3d scatterCenterVelocity(Candidate *candidate) const = 0
Returns the velocity vector of the scatter centers in the rest frame of the candidate. Needs to be implemented in inheriting classes.
void scatter(Candidate *candidate, const Vector3d &scatter_center_velocity) const
Scatter the candidate with a center with given scatter center velocity into a random direction. Assumes that the candidate is ultra-relativistic (m = 0).
