In science:

Having understood the phase slips further we move on to the three prong scatterer (Fig. 4) that is often encountered in mesoscopic systems including the experimental set up of Ref. and many such similar experiments.
Violation of general Friedel sum rule in mesoscopic systems
For the symmetric three prong scatterer (L1 = L2 = L3 = L), the antiresonances are almost cancelled by the resonances but still a violation of Eq. 2 or 3 can be seen at low energy.
Violation of general Friedel sum rule in mesoscopic systems
The attractive potential in the three prong scatterer offsets the symmetry between the phase jumps and the phase drops so that they do not cancel each other.

Figure 4.18: Example of the 3D reconstruction of a 4-prong νµ CC event. (Top) The two raw data views of a νµ CC interaction which breaks a nucleon into four visible charged particles. (Bottom) Three dimensional view of the reconstructed event.
Study of accelerator neutrino interactions in a liquid argon TPC
Phase 2 of the analysis, with relaxed cuts for the ντ interaction, including three-prong decays, is in progress.
Experimental Summary
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 recovery of the three-prong decays is essential to make the base selection independent of the decay mode, and allow the use of higher level techniques to further suppress the background.

We select 3-prong vs. 1-prong topology events, i.e. three charged tracks are in one hemisphere and one charged track in the other.
