We compute the complete set of Feynman Rules producing the Rational Terms of kind R 2 needed to perform any QCD 1-loop calculation. We also explicitly check that in order to account for the entire R 2 contribution, even in case of processes with more than four external legs, only up to four-point vertices are needed. Our results are expressed both in the 't… (More)
The nuclear reaction models embedded in the FLUKA code cover hadron, ion, photon and neutrino induced nuclear interactions from energies as low as few tens of MeV up to several tens of TeV. A short description of the main physics ingredients in the FLUKA nuclear models is given, with emphasis on the intermediate energy range and on " exotic " reactions. The… (More)
We present the results of a Bayesian analysis of solar neutrino data in terms of ν e → ν µ,τ and ν e → ν s oscillations, where ν s is a sterile neutrino. We perform a Rates Analysis of the rates of solar neutrino experiments, including the first SNO CC result, and spectral data of the CHOOZ experiment, and a Global Analysis that takes into account also the… (More)
We present the results of a Bayesian analysis of solar neutrino data in terms of ν e → ν µ,τ oscillations, independent from the Standard Solar Model predictions for the solar neutrino fluxes. We show that such a model independent analysis allows to constraint the values of the neutrino mixing parameters in limited regions around the usual SMA, LMA, LOW and… (More)
Heavy-ion collisions can be simulated by means of comprehensive approaches, to include the many different reaction mechanisms which may contribute. QMD models and their relativistic extensions are examples of these approaches based on Monte Carlo techniques. In this paper are shown some results obtained by coupling a new QMD code, which describes the fast… (More)
Results which have been recently obtained with the Boltzmann master equation and the FLUKA code in the analysis of heavy ion interactions at relative energies ranging from Coulomb barrier up to a few GeV/n are discussed.
The paper " Bayesian View of Solar Neutrino Oscillations " , by M. V. Garzelli and C. Giunti, lists eight reasons for using Bayesian methods. I shall examine these reasons critically. 1 The Motivation In a recent paper  by Garzelli and Giunti, eight arguments are presented in favour of using Bayesian methods for statistical analysis of experimental data.… (More)
We present a Monte Carlo analysis in terms of neutrino oscillations of the total rates measured in solar neutrino experiments in the framework of frequentist statistics. We show that the goodness of fit and the confidence level of the allowed regions in the space of the neutrino oscillation parameters are significantly overestimated in the standard method.… (More)
We update predictions for lepton fluxes from the hadroproduction of charm quarks in the scattering of primary cosmic rays with the Earth's atmosphere. The calculation of charm-pair hadroproduction applies the latest results from pertur-bative QCD through next-to-next-to-leading order and modern parton distributions, together with estimates on various… (More)
We present an update of the Binoth Les Houches Accord (BLHA) to standardise the interface between Monte Carlo programs and codes providing one-loop matrix elements.
