Several kilometres from the beaches at Ein Gev, at the foot of rocky hills, immense nets cover banana trees whose leaves wilt with the surrounding dry vegetation.
We have explored in this paper the energy region of 17.3 GeV to 22.4 GeV through comparative studies of two-pion HBT radii.
The GEV distribution function is generally used to estimate the nonexceedance probability of extreme events because the upper tail of the GEV distribution is suitable to represent the extreme events.
When analysing finite time series, the convergence of the estimated GEV or GP shape parameters to near-zero asymptotic values can be very slow.
Most of these studies considered GEV, GPA, PE3, LN3 and GLO for best fit candidate distributions.
While the chances of seeing this bump at 750 GeV are fairly low, says Matt Strassler, a theoretical physicist affiliated with Harvard, finding such a bump within the huge range of masses explored by the LHC is not nearly as unexpected.
