Data Release for A.A. Aguilar-Arevalo et al., "A Search for Electron Neutrino Appearance at the Δm2 ~1 eV2 Scale", arXiv:0704.1500 [hep-ex], Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 231801 (2007)

The following MiniBooNE information from the first oscillation paper in 2007 is made available to the public:

(Dm2 (eV2),  sin2(2th)max, 90% CL, sin2(2th)max, 3sigma CL, sin2(2th)sens, 90% CL, sin2(2th)sens, 3sigma CL)
where sin2(2th)max and sin2(2th)sens indicate the upper limit and sensitivity, respectively, and 90% and 3sigma CL indicate the confidence levels corresponding to those numbers.
  • ntuple file of official MiniBooNE 2-dimensional chi2 surface as a function of ( Dm2, sin2(2theta) ) in the range ( 10-2 < Dm2 (eV2) < 102, 3·10-4 < sin2(2theta) < 1 ). The file contains 20,000 rows, one for each ( Dm2, sin2(2theta) ) pair of values, and 3 columns per row with the following format:
(Dm2 (eV2),  sin2(2th), chi2)
Note: the value quoted in the third column is the total, and not the reduced, chi2 value (ie, it has not been divided by the number of degrees of freedom)


Instructions on how to use this information can be found here. A FORTRAN program implementing these instructions to perform an example oscillation fit can be found here (note: you will need CERNLIB libraries, including LAPACK libraries, to build this program).
