Cuts and penalties: comment on "The clustering of ultra-high energy cosmic rays and their sources"

By P. Tinyakov and I. Tkachev

Abstract

In a series of papers we have found statistically significant correlations between arrival directions of ultra-high energy cosmic rays and BL Lacertae objects. Recently, our calculations were partly repeated by Evans, Ferrer and Sarkar with different conclusions. We demonstrate that the criticism of Evans, Ferrer and Sarkar is incorrect. We also present the details of our method.Comment: Replaced with version accepted for publication in Phys. Rev.
