particle.no: Particle indexing convention

Description Details See Also

Description

The particle indexing system in libamtrack works as follows: for a particle with atomic number Z and mass number A the index is particle.no = 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.

You can use AT.particle.name.from.particle.no and AT.particle.no.from.particle.name to convert particle names into particle indices and vice versa.
