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)
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 [1] 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)
