 v1 = 'perturbative' and 'real' particles; the perturbative weigth = == 'perturbative' and 'real' particles == (following text is taken from: O.Buss, PhD thesis, [http://www.uni-giessen.de/cms/fbz/fb07/fachgebiete/physik/einrichtungen/theorie/theorie1/publications/dissertation/buss_diss pdf], Appendix B.1) For some calculations, e.g. low-energetic πA or γA collision, it is a good assumption, that the target nucleus stays very close to its ground state. Henceforth, one keeps as an approximation the target nucleus constant in time. This basically means that the phase space density of the target is not allowed to change during the run. The test-particles which represent this constant target nucleus are called ''real'' test-particles. However, one also wants to consider the final state particles. Thus one defines another type of test-particles which are called ''perturbative''. The ''perturbative'' test-particles are propagated and may collide with ''real'' ones, the products are ''perturbative'' particles again. However, ''perturbative'' particles may not scatter among each other. Furthermore, they are neglected in the calculation of the actual densities. One can simulate in this fashion the effects of the almost constant target on the outgoing nucleons without modifying the target. E.g. in πA collisions we initialize all initial state pions as ''perturbative'' test-particles. Thus the target stays automatically constant and all products of the collisions of pions and target nucleons are assigned to the ''perturbative'' regime. Furthermore, since the ''perturbative'' particles do not react among each other or modify the ''real'' particles in a reaction, one can also split a ''perturbative'' particle in $$n$$ pieces (several ''perturbative'' particles) during a run. Each piece is given a corresponding weight $$1/n$$ and one simulates like this $$n$$ possible final state scenarios of the same ''perturbative'' particle during one run. == the perturbative weigth == the variable perWeight in the [//Documentation2016/code/typeDefinitions/particleDefinition_f90.html#robo688 definition of the particle type]
