Monte Carlo analysis

In this section, we make use of the Monte Carlo simulations to understand
our data and extract the physics. The details of our Monte Carlo code SMC
has been already given in Section 5.1. The physics input into
the simulations is mostly taken from the Nuclear
Atlas [16,17] for scattering cross sections, and Faifman
*et al*. for the resonant [133,70,71,72] and
nonresonant [51] molecular formation rates, with exceptions that
(a) the muon transfer rate in
,
s** ^{-1}**, and
formation rate (nonresonant)
s

- Fusion yield analysis
- Time-of-flight analysis
- Monte Carlo uncertainties
- Formation rate and resonance energy results
