Calculation parameters data specification

Calculation parameters files contain all the parameters needed for calculation: parameters for the detector used, container, geometry, etc. The extension of the calculation parameters files is “.savx”. The structure of the calculation parameters files is as follows:

<detector Detector specification />

<container Container specification />

<geometry Geometry specification />

<source Source specification />

<energies Energies specification />


<referenceEfficiencyCurve REC specification />

All structures in the specification above have been defined previously, except for the “precision” element, which contains single real value representing the calculation precision (in percentages).

The container, geometry and REC elements are optional (and absent in case when no container/geometry/reference efficiency curve is to be used).
