There are 2 branches (feature/drivera_sparsify_margin and feature/drivera_processMap_CoulombScat_nCapture)

that have some changes to the MCParticle and MCTrajectory classes.

The MCParticle change in the first branch includes the exposure of an argument that controls the 'margin' allowed for sparsification within the MCTrajectory object.

The MCTrajectory change in the second branch includes the addition of 2 processes/keys in the trajectory process map.

#3 Updated by Lynn Garren 4 months ago

The processes 'CoulombScat' and 'nCapture' will be added to the list of allowed processes in MCTrajectory. The default margin of 0.1 comes from what's in MCTrajectory by default (which is 0.1).

This will have an effect on some Geant4 reweighting machinery which is under development.

It is probable that NOvA will want this as well so that the reweighting is more accurate in general/possible for neutrons in particular.
