Title: Erratum to “Estimating the effective system dead time parameter for correlated neutron counting” [Nucl. Instrum. Methods Phys. Res. A 871 (2017) 154–160]

Abstract

The expressions given for φ, the ratio of effective system dead time to gate width, are wrong for the case of the third and fourth order forms because the simple square root is used when the 3rd and 4th roots, respectively, are required. We failed to notice during proof reading that this change from the submitted manuscript had crept in. The correct form should, however, be clear from the steps of the derivations outlined in the text; and so we hope our mistake has not misled anyone.
