Speaker: Maria Grazia PiaThe Hadron Kinetic Model is part of the set of theory driven models for hadronic interactions in the Geant4 Simulation Toolkit.
Object Oriented technologies play a fundamental role to address the complex physics domain described by this model.
The Hadron Kinetic Model covers the intermediate energy regime of hadronic interactions, O(100 MeV) to O(5 GeV); it can satisfy two use cases for intranuclear transport, both as a hadronic interaction model to be used by the physics processes, and as a back-end to higher energy models.
It is capable to handle meson-meson, meson-baryon, baryon-baryon interactions and baryon-antibaryon annihilation, including resonance excitation and deexcitation, as well as pion absorption. A large set of exclusive channels is implemented in the model.
The Object Oriented design provides the basis for extensive code reuse by other models, such as cascade models or quantum molecular dynamics models; it also provides the means for easy extension or evolution of the system.
