void process(Candidate *candidate) const
void performInteraction(Candidate *candidate, bool onProton) const
double lossLength(int id, double gamma, double z = 0)

Calculates the loss length E dx/dE in [m]. This is not used in the simulation.

  • id: PDG particle id
  • gamma: Lorentz factor of particle
  • z: redshift

SophiaEventOutput sophiaEvent(bool onProton, double Ein, double eps) const

Direct SOPHIA interface. Output is an object SophiaEventOutput with two vectors “energy” and “id” each of length N (number of out-going particles). The i-th component of each vector corresponds to the same particle. This is not used in the simulation.

  • onProton: proton or neutron
  • Ein: energy of nucleon
  • eps: energy of target photon
