Detailed Description

template<typename PType>
struct ThePEG::ParticleTraits< PType >

ParticleTraits is a templated class defining a general interface to any particle class.

To make another particle type PType available to some general ThePEG routines, the ParticleTraits should be specialized to that class implementing relevant methods of the general ParticleTraits class below. Typically one needs specialisation both for the class itself and of pointers to the class.

const Momentum3 q 
)
inlinestatic

Set the 3-momentum of a particle.

The energy is rescaled to preserve invariant mass.
