Particle indexing convention

Description Details See Also


The particle indexing system in libamtrack works as follows: for a particle with atomic number Z and mass number A the index is = 1000 * Z + A. This ensures uniqueness for all particle types used in libamtrack. Also, an extension to anti-protons or ions could be made using negative numbers.
