The Bayesian Block algorithm, originally developed for applications in astronomy, can be used to improve the binning of histograms in high energy physics. The visual improvement can be dramatic, as shown here with two simple examples. More importantly, this algorithm and the histogram is produces is a non-parametric density estimate, providing a description of background distributions that does not suffer from the arbitrariness of ad hoc analytical functions. The statistical power of an… 

INVESTIGATION OF THE PRECURSOR PHASE OF GAMMA-RAY BURSTS

High-energy neutrinos are promising cosmic messengers which can advance our understanding of the physics involved in the most extreme astrophysical phenomena and environments in the Universe. The

Precision measurement of the W boson decay branching fractions in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s} =$ 13 TeV

The leptonic and inclusive hadronic decay branching fractions of the W boson are measured using proton-proton collision data collected at √ s = 13 TeV by the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC,
