|Summary||0000047: Add pi0 decay capability to bggen|
|Description||The bggen program ca be made to decay pi0 and eta particles by adding a minus ("-") in front of the particle id in the pythia-geant.map file. This only applies to pythia generated particles though. Ones generated from low energy(<3GeV) photons are made through different code and so do not decay the particles. This is particularly misleading for pi0s when looking at the generated events since the user will see some pi0s being decayed as advertised and could easily miss the ones that aren't.|
Decaying pi0's into 2gamma f.s. should be done at least. One should also consider decaying etas or pi0s to other decay channels.
