Re: [fluka-discuss]: pi0 production cross-section

the FLUKA DPM model is known to reproduce well pi production data from
its threshold (around 5 GeV) up to roughly 10 TeV lab
(in between ISR and SppS cms energies). I underline "pi" and not pi0
because data on pi0 exist but are not too many. Above 10 TeV, FLUKA,
if linked with DPMJET3, switches gradually to DPMJET-3/PHOJET which is
a model which can work up to much higher energies.

I also take the chance to remind that publication of comparisons of FLUKA
models with other models/codes is strictly reserved to the authors as per
