 the propagation in detectors. The static attributes of a TParticle
 are described by TParticlePDG.

 copy constructor
TParticle& operator=(const TParticle& )
 Equal operator
Double_t GetMass() const
 Return nominal particle mass from PDG table.
Int_t Beauty() const
 Return beauty quantum number.
Int_t Charm() const
 Return charm quantum number.
Int_t Strangeness() const
 Return strangeness quantum number.
Int_t DistancetoPrimitive(Int_t px, Int_t py)
-*-*-*-*Compute distance from point px,py to a primary track
*-*            ====================================================
*-*  Compute the closest distance of approach from point px,py to each segment
*-*  of a track.
*-*  The distance is computed in pixels units.
void ExecuteEvent(Int_t event, Int_t px, Int_t py)
-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Execute action corresponding to one event
*-*                  =========================================
const char* GetName() const
return particle name
TParticlePDG* GetPDG(Int_t mode = 0) const
 returns a pointer to the TParticlePDG object using the pdgcode
 if mode == 0 (default) always get a fresh value for the pointer.
 if mode != 0 this function returns directly the previously
              computed pointer from a previous call
 One can use mode=1 (faster) when the TParticle object is not part of a
 TClonesArray used in split mode in a Root TTree.
void GetPolarisation(TVector3& v) const
return particle polarisation
const char * GetTitle() const
return particle title
void Paint(Option_t* option = "")
  Paint a primary track

void Print(Option_t* option = "") const
  Print the internals of the primary vertex particle

TParticlePDG* pdg = ((TParticle*)this)->GetPDG();
void SetPdgCode(Int_t pdg)
change the PDG code for this particle
Get a new pointer to a TParticlePDG from TDatabasePDG
Recompute the mass
void SetPolarisation(Double_t polx, Double_t poly, Double_t polz)
set particle polarisation
void Sizeof3D() const
Return total X3D size of this primary*-
