Effects of the Detection Efficiency on Multiplicity Distributions    [PDF]

A. Tang, G. Wang
In this paper we investigate how a finite detection efficiency affects three popular multiplicity distributions, namely the Poisson, the Binomial and the Negative Binomial distributions. We found that a constant detection efficiency does not change the characteristic of a distribution, while a variable detection efficiency does. We layout a procedure to study the deviation of moments from the baseline distribution due to a variable detection efficiency.
