Nature of problem:
Calculation of secondaries produced by electromagnetic cascades on the extragalactic background light (EBL)
Monte Carlo simulation of pair production and inverse Compton scattering on EBL photons; two parametrisations from Ref.  can be chosen as EBL; weighted sampling of the cascading secondaries; recording of energy, observation angle and time delay of secondary particles at the present epoch.
Deflections and time-delays are calculated in the small-angle approximation.
400 seconds for 103 photons injected at redshift z = 0.2 with energy E = 100 TeV using one Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU with 2.8GHz.
