class DirectedFlowOfScatterCenters : public StepLengthModifier

In a directed flow, the step length depend on the direction of the particles as headon collisions are more likely than tail=on collisions - propagating against the flow is harder.

Public Functions

DirectedFlowOfScatterCenters(const Vector3d &scatterCenterVelocity)



scatterCenterVelocity – velocity of scattering centers

virtual double modify(double steplength, Candidate *candidate)

Returns an update of the steplength.

  • steplength – Modifies step length, e.g., based on scattering model.

  • candidate – Additional candidate properties are usually included in the calculation of the updated step length.
