Implementation of the PxCone algorithm (plugin for fastjet v2.1 upwards)
PxConePlugin is a plugin for fastjet (v2.1 upwards) that provides an interface to the fortran pxcone iterative cone algorithm with midpoint seeds.
Pxcone was written by Luis del Pozo and Michael H. Seymour. It is not a "supported" program, so if you encounter problems, you are on your own...
Note that pxcone sometimes encounters non-stable iterations; in such cases it returns an error – the plugin propagates this by throwing a fastjet::Error exception; if the user wishes to have robust code, they should catch this exception.
Pxcone has a hard-coded limit (by default 4000) on the maximum number of particles and protojets; if the number of particles or protojets exceeds this, again a fastjet::Error exception will be thrown.
The functionality of pxcone is described at http://www.hep.man.ac.uk/u/wplano/ConeJet.ps
