Member Function Documentation

◆ nloops()

virtual unsigned int ThePEG::RunningCoupling::nloops ( ) const
inlinevirtual

Return the number of loops contributing to the running this coupling.

The default returns zero to ensure backward compatibility.

Reimplemented in ThePEG::O1AlphaS, and ThePEG::SimpleAlphaEM.

Definition at line 50 of file RunningCoupling.h.

◆ overestimateValue()

virtual double ThePEG::RunningCoupling::overestimateValue ( Energy2  scale) const
inlinevirtual

Return an overestimate to the running coupling at the given scale.

This is defined to aid veto algorithms and by default returns the coupling itself, using the EventGenerators's StandardModelBase object.

Definition at line 68 of file RunningCoupling.h.

References value().

◆ persistentInput()

void ThePEG::RunningCoupling::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.

Referenced by scaleFactor().

◆ persistentOutput()

void ThePEG::RunningCoupling::persistentOutput ( PersistentOStream os) const

Function used to write out object persistently.

Parameters
osthe persistent output stream written to.

Referenced by scaleFactor().

◆ ratioToOverestimate()

virtual double ThePEG::RunningCoupling::ratioToOverestimate ( Energy2  ) const
inlinevirtual

Return the ratio of the exact to the overestimated value of the running coupling.

The default implementation returns one in accordance with the default implementation of overestimateValue
