- Chance of seeing a Higgs
- *
- represents all relevant theoretical parameters
- **
- represents all possible things that happen to
particles as they traverse real world for nanoseconds (i.e.,
for around 50 feet as speed of light is a nanosecond per foot!).

- This is a ``Double'' Monte Carlo---each Monte Carlo is a multiple
integral.
- Note that ``Second Monte Carlo'' has lots of ``non-differentiable functions'' as particles are lost/detected with probability 0,1 respectively at sharp geometric boundaries.
