I am using a model EvtLambdaLambdaBarPol in EvtGen/Private to generate artifitial polarization.

Decay pbarpSystem
1.0 anti-Lambda0 Lambda0 LambdaLambdaBarPol 1.64 0.5;

In principle, we can give a polarization value for lambda and lambdabar with last of option, which is set to 0.5 in this example.
This way one can introduce the polarization vector n perp to scattering plane.

I could not see any changing of angular distribution in n direction, which is a quantized axis used in the measurement of hyperon polarization. When I set 0.5 and 0.0, angular distributions are same for both. That means that this option value is not correctly working for generating the polarizaiton.
Does anyone know how can I introduce a polarization with this model? or most likely you can assume that the coordinate systems are not properly lorentz-boosted and thus I cannot see any slop due to that reason.

Best wishes,

This model changes only the spin density, not the angles. If you let Lambdas decay with phase space most probably this information is lost.
I don't know how was used this model, Jan Zhong added the polarization part, maybe Bertram knows better.
