    ThTh5. The paper never explains what collider bias is. It says “(sometimes referred to as selection bias, sampling bias, ascertainment bias)”. I assume it refers to the way someone in a collision makes a very poor eye-witness because they have trouble ascertaining what actually occurred, due to the shock of what happened to them. But it might instead refer to some weird aspect of quantum interactions that occur in a particle collider.Report
