Random deaths in a computational model for age-structured populations
Since we proceed in a sequential manner, at each time step the population oscillates between a minimum value, which is its value after all deaths for that particular time step have been considered, and a maximum one at the end of the time step, after all births.

However, runs on NaF were measured after each AGL runs, and the AGL/NaF ratio of the Cherenkov yield was the same within a small statistical uncertainty before and after the accident, thereby providing a mean to normalize the late runs with respect to the early ones (table 7.3).

While this cannot a priori be excluded theoretically, it causes consistency problems with our implementation which assumes that transverse collective dynamics sets in only after we start the TTHM evolution (i.e. only after thermalization).
