Hi all,
I would like to request help in modifying fairroot to give me information about eta=-log(tan(theta/2)), which is a very common parameter for understanding detector physics. Moreover, I think it should calculate eta by default, in the same way that it calculates phi and theta by default.

To give more background:
The way fairbase is in the repository, if you do
root fairroot/examples/rutherford/macros/run_rutherford.C
the output is contained in fairroot/examples/rutherford/macros/data/

If I open the root file
root data/
TBrowser j
Then you will see the attached image. I would like to modify fairroot to include information about eta as one of the leaves of FairRutherfordPoint. Can someone tell me how to do that? Would I need to make changes to FairRutherfordPoint? FairMCPoint? etc...

I hope I'm making myself clear. All help is greatly appreciated Smile
