09 - adding user information to a fastjet::PseudoJet

This example illustrates how it is possible to associate user-defined information to a fastjet::PseudoJet (beyond the simple user index), using a class derived from fastjet::UserInfoBase.

Note that in this example we have chosen to use this user-defined information to obtain properties of the constituents of the reconstructed jet (e.g. if the event is made of a hard interaction and pileup, what part of the reconstructed jet comes from the hard interaction). To do that, we also show how to introduce a user-defined fastjet::Selector. For some applications, it might also be useful to define new recombination schemes using the extra information.

run it with : ./09-user_info < data/Pythia-dijet-ptmin100-lhc-pileup-1ev.dat

(Note that this event consists of many sub-events, the first one being the "hard" interaction and the following being minbias events composing the pileup. It has the specificity that it also contains the PDG id of the particles)
