Dear Donghee,
the method "Double_t PndEmcCluster::Mass() const" is helpful for the distinction between real photons and faked photons (e.g. merged pions). It calculates the so-called "invariant shower mass" of the cluster which is in principle a specific property for the description of the shower shape. For this, each fired crystal will be assosiated with a four vector (mass=0) and afterwards this function calculates the invariant mass of all theses four vectors. This is the reason for the iteration of the digis.
In case of a real photon one expects a shower mass around 0. For merged pi0's instead the shower mass is in general higher and expected to be close to the pi-mass.

Cheers,
Bertram.
