Cross Section Ratios



As demonstrated in the previous chapter, valuable insights can be gained from the measurement of absolute cross sections. However, they are subject to the totality of experimental and theoretical uncertainties. Therefore, it is worthwhile to contemplate alternative observables that are either insensitive or sensitive at a reduced level to the dominant sources of uncertainty. The possibility discussed in this chapter deals with cross section ratios.
