The impact-parameter dependence of the mean number of interacting nucleons in high-energy heavy-ion collisions is considered in the case of identical atomic weights of colliding nuclei and in the case where one nucleus is much heavier than the other. It is shown that the use of a rare event—for example, an event of J/ψ or ϒ production—as a trigger ...

Arterial injury caused by hip fracture is a rare event. We report a case of pseudoaneurysm of the profunda femoris artery that presented 4 weeks after correction of an intertrochanteric hip fracture with a dynamic hip screw. The diagnosis was confirmed by Duplex ultrasound scanning, and it was treated by ligation of the profunda femoris artery at t...

We analyze the asymptotic behavior of a homogeneous, Markov chain with discrete time under a certain scheme of rare events.

Rare events pose a problem: is an observed chain of radioactive decays that of the background, or are they genetically linked? The paper suggests an approach for the problem solution, based on formalization of the background concept. This approach is an inevitable alternative to other methods, which require the a priori information about the linked...

Problems concerning the existence of hypothetical superheavy elements for which theoretical nuclear models predict high stability with respect to various modes of radioactive decay are discussed. The synthesis of superheavy nuclei and the possibilities for performing experiments aimed at detecting rare events of their production and decay in heavy-...

The optimization of bolometric detectors, like those that will be developed for the rare event experiment CUORE, requires a complete knowledge of the detector's thermal parameters. Since the CUORE detecting elements will consist of TeO2 crystals, we have measured the specific heat of this material down to 60 mK with the thermal relaxation method. P...

We study piecewise affine maps of the interval with an indifferent fixed point causing the absolutely continuous invariant measure to be infinite. Considering the laws of the first entrance times of a point – picked at random according to Lebesgue measure – into a sequence of events shrinking to the strongly repelling fixed point, we prove that (wh...

CUORE is a proposed tightly packed array of 1000 TeO2 bolometers, each being a cube 5 cm on a side with a mass of 750 g. The array consists of 25 vertical towers, arranged in a square of 5 towers by 5 towers, each containing ten layers of four crystals. The design of the detector is optimized for ultralow-background searches for neutrinoless double...

The yields of fragments originating from 238U fission induced by 5-MeV neutrons are investigated. Accumulated statistics—2.5×106 events of binary fission—make it possible to study fission-fragment yields at anomalously high values of the total kinetic energy. The spectra of the cold fragmentation of 239U are obtained. Events characterized by the to...
