Dear All,

I have simulated two decay reactions using EvtGenDirect at just production threshold. These are the reactions.

pbar p -> J/psi pi+ pi- -> e+ e- pi+ pi- (beam momentum = 5.049089 GeV/c and just above at 6.0 GeV/c).
pbar p -> D*+ D*- -> D0 pi+ D0bar pi- -> K- pi+ pi+ k+ pi- pi- (beam momentum = 7.618268 GeV/c and just above at 8.0 GeV/c).

After that, I had a look on particle tracks in the eventDisplay window and observed that some unexpected particles like Deutron, Alpha, Triton, neutron, antineutron, muons, gammas are present there which I did not expected from EvtGenDirect by defining a decay file for particular decay.

To cross check for these additional particles, I created output.evt files using the same decay files then inside the output.evt file everything looks OK as I expected.

Is this behavior of EvtGenDirect is normal?
Will these additional particles harm the reconstruction of these decays?

Kindly help me in this regard.

I have attached simulation macros, decay files and snap shot of eventDisplay window.
