VERSION

version 0.022

SYNOPSIS

        use HEP::MCNS qw(particle_name particle_code);
        my $electron_name = particle_name( 11 );
        my $bzero_name = particle_name( 511 );
        my $bplus_code = particle_code( 'B+' );
        my $dstar_code = particle_code( 'D*0' );

DESCRIPTION

The Monte Carlo Numbering Scheme assigns a unique identifier to each particle. This module converts those numbers into readable particle names and vice versa.

If any number is missing/wrong, please file an issue.

LaTeX output is planned but not yet implemented
