0003 /** \class Thrust

0004  *

0005  * Utility to compute thrust value and axis from

0006  * a collection of candidates.

0007  *

0008  * Ported from BaBar implementation.

0009  *

0010  * The thrust axis is the vector T which maximises

0011  * the following expression:

0012  *

0013  *       sum_i=1...N ( | T . p_i | )

0014  *  t = --------------------------------- 

0015  *      sum_i=1...N ( (p_i . _p_i)^(1/2) )

0016  *

0017  * where p_i, i=1...N are the particle momentum vectors.

0018  * The thrust value is the maximum value of t.

0019  * 

0020  * The thrust axis has a two-fold ambiguity due to taking the

0021  * absolute value of the dot product. This computation returns

0022  * by convention a thurs axis with a positive component along 

0023  * the z-direction is positive. 

0024  *

0025  * The thrust measure the alignment of a collection of particles

0026  * along a common axis.  The lower the thrust, the more spherical

0027  * the event is.  The higher the thrust, the more jet-like the
