Target version:-



I have been running ctobssim using a table as input for the xml file. I have two different classes of spectra, corresponding to masses 49 GeV and 52 GeV, and a factor to ease the detection. For the tables corresponding to 49 GeV everything seems to be ok (ctobssim and ctlike), but for 52 GeV the normalization given by ctlike is too high (for example, 375 instead of 1; if I constrain the maximum value at 10, I get 10). This implies high values of the TS for 52 GeV. I am going to upload two nohups containing all the logfiles. If something is not clear please ask.

Thank you.

No recurrence.

Probably due to not using energy dispersion while studying sources with sharp energy features at low energies. Using energy dispersion fixed the issue on a simplified test case for me.
Awaiting for feedback from Alejandra.

Yes, that was the problem; now it is solved. Thanks!
