Errors on ratios of small numbers of events

The correct expression for the error on the ratio of numbers of events is given. Values are tabulated for small numbers of events. Conventionally the normal approximation is used, yielding too small… Expand

Energy loss and energy straggling of protons and pions in the momentum range 0. 7 to 115 GeV/c

- Physics
- 1 August 1983

The energy-loss distribution for pions and protons, with momenta between 0.7 and 115 GeV/c, has been measured in an ion-implanted silicon detector of 300 ..mu..m thickness. The data are well… Expand

Acceleration of RANLUX

- Computer Science
- 1 May 1997

Abstract A pseudorandom number generator that was proposed by Luscher and coded in Fortran by James has been accelerated by conversion to integer arithmetic. At the maximum “luxury” level, this… Expand

- S. Hancock, F. James, J. Movchet, P. Rancoita, L. Vanrossum
- Physics
- 1984

The energy-loss distributions for protons, with kinetic energies between 220 and 850 MeV, and for several relativistic particles produced at incoming beam momentum of 115 GeV/c, have been measured in… Expand
