A GfsParticle is basically an inert Lagrangian particle. It can be used as a particle type to define a list of Lagrangian particles (GfsParticleList). Each GfsParticle is characterised by its id number (interger) and position (X,Y,Z).

The syntax within the GfsParticleList syntex is

GfsParticleList GfsParticle { Id X Y Z }

where (X,Y,Z) is the initial location of the GfsParticle.

The GfsParticle particle object is derived from GfsEvent but does not inherit of its read/write method i.e. timing (start, end ...) cannot be specified directly for a GfsParticle but has to be specify for the whole GfsParticleList.
