To overcome this obstacle, we used a two-pronged approach.
Satisfiability and computing van der Waerden numbers
The three prongs extend to infinity: these are the ultra-spinning regimes in which one spin is much larger than the other two.
Black Holes in Higher Dimensions
The prong along ji becomes asymptotical ly of the form |jk | + |jl | ≤ f (ji ), i.e., the same shape as the five-dimensional diagram fig. 2(a). (b) d = 8: ultra-spinning regimes exist in which two spins are much larger than the third one.
Black Holes in Higher Dimensions
One possible approach is to require two 3-prong hadronic τ ’s to maximize the visible τ τ mass and hence its sensitivity to the endpoint analogous to that discussed in Section VII.D.
SUSY Before the Next Lepton Collider
Due to the rather specific physics aim that required detection of multiple charged particles in the final state, a “two-prong” trigger was used here.
Normalization discrepancies in photoproduction reactions
The CLAS detector is divided into six azimuthally-symmetric “sectors”. A two-prong trigger required at least two charged-tracks in two different sectors to be detected in coincidence with an incoming photon within a time window of 150 ns.
Normalization discrepancies in photoproduction reactions
Since a 2-prong trigger was used here, at least two charged particles were required to be detected.
