# Inferences on the Higgs Boson and Axion Masses through a Maximum Entropy Principle

@article{Alves2017InferencesOT, title={Inferences on the Higgs Boson and Axion Masses through a Maximum Entropy Principle}, author={Alexandre Alves and Alex Gomes Dias and Roberto da Silva}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology}, year={2017} }

The Maximum Entropy Principle (MEP) is a method that can be used to infer the value of an unknown quantity in a set of probability functions. In this work we review two applications of MEP: one giving a precise inference of the Higgs boson mass value; and the other one allowing to infer the mass of the axion. In particular, for the axion we assume that it has a decay channel into pairs of neutrinos, in addition to the decay into two photons. The Shannon entropy associated to an initial ensemble…

### Maximum Entropy Inferences on the Axion Mass in Models with Axion-Neutrino Interaction

- Physics
- 2017

In this work, we use the maximum entropy principle (MEP) to infer the mass of an axion which interacts to photons and neutrinos in an effective low energy theory. The Shannon entropy function to be…

It is proved that the authors can get some positive data rate that has the same small error probability and also there is an upper bound of the data rate, which means they cannot achieve the data rates with any encoding scheme that has small enough error probability over the upper bound.
