Detailed Description

The AlphaEM class is an exact reimplementation of the electromagentic coupling in FORTRAN HERWIG and is mainly intended for testing.

It uses that same hadronic parameterisation as in the ThePEG::SimpleEM but differs in the treatment of the top and leptonic contribution.

Member Function Documentation

◆ clone()

virtual IBPtr Herwig::AlphaEM::clone ( ) const
protectedvirtual

Make a simple clone of this object.

Returns
a pointer to the new object.

Implements ThePEG::InterfacedBase.

◆ doinit()

virtual void Herwig::AlphaEM::doinit ( )
protectedvirtual

Initialize this object after the setup phase before saving an EventGenerator to disk.

Exceptions
InitExceptionif object could not be initialized properly.

Reimplemented from ThePEG::InterfacedBase.

◆ fullclone()

virtual IBPtr Herwig::AlphaEM::fullclone ( ) const
protectedvirtual

Make a clone of this object, possibly modifying the cloned object to make it sane.

Returns
a pointer to the new object.

Reimplemented from ThePEG::InterfacedBase.

◆ Init()

static void Herwig::AlphaEM::Init ( )
static

The standard Init function used to initialize the interfaces.

Called exactly once for each class by the class description system before the main function starts or when this class is dynamically loaded.

◆ operator=()

AlphaEM& Herwig::AlphaEM::operator= ( const AlphaEM )
private

The assignment operator is private and must never be called.

In fact, it should not even be implemented.

◆ persistentInput()

void Herwig::AlphaEM::persistentInput ( PersistentIStream is,
int  version 
)

Function used to read in object persistently.

Parameters
isthe persistent input stream read from.
versionthe version number of the object when written.

◆ persistentOutput()

void Herwig::AlphaEM::persistentOutput ( PersistentOStream os) const

Function used to write out object persistently.

Parameters
osthe persistent output stream written to.

◆ realPi()

double Herwig::AlphaEM::realPi ( double  ratio) const
protected

The real part of the photon self-energy.

Parameters
ratioThe ratio of the mass squared of the fermion to the scale squared, $m^2/Q^2$.

◆ value()

virtual double Herwig::AlphaEM::value ( Energy2  scale,
const StandardModelBase  
) const
virtual

The $\alpha_{EM}$.

Return the value of the coupling at a given scale using the given standard model object, sm.

Implements ThePEG::RunningCoupling.

Member Data Documentation

◆ _me

Energy2 Herwig::AlphaEM::_me
private
