It has recently been shown that an unbinned distance-based statistic, the energy, can be used to construct an extremely powerful nonparametric multivariate two sample goodness-of-fit test. An extension to this method that makes it possible to perform nonparametric regression using multiple multivariate data sets is presented in this paper. The technique, which is based on the concept of minimizing the energy of the system, permits determination of parameters of interest without the need for… Expand

Multivariate analyses play an important role in high energy physics. Such analyses often involve performing an unbinned maximum likelihood fit of a probability density function (p.d.f.) to the data.… Expand

We exploit the quantum coherence between pair-produced D 0 and D 0 in Ψ(3770) decays to make a first determination of the relative strong phase differences between D 0 → K 0 S π + π - and D 0 → K 0 S… Expand

We introduce a new statistical quantity, the energy, to test whether two samples originate from the same distributions. The energy is a simple logarithmic function of the distances of the… Expand
