Measured prompt energy spectrum for each integration period (data points) superimposed on the expected prompt energy spectrum, including backgrounds (green region), for the no-oscillation (blue dotted curve) and best-fit (red solid curve) at sin2(2θ13) = 0.109 and Δm2 = 2.32×10−3 eV2. Inset: stacked spectra of backgrounds. Bottom: differences between data and no-oscillation prediction (data points), and differences between best fit prediction and no-oscillation prediction (red curve). The orange band represents the systematic uncertainties on the best-fit prediction.

Text files containing the numerical values of the bin contents of each histogram in Figure 1 are given below. Note that bins cover two periods of data integration: two periods of 18 bins each, for 36 total bins. Bin populations are given in units of events per 0.5 MeV.

Uncertainties on the signal and background predictions are represented using a covariance matrix. Matrices representing the systematic contributions from a number of sources are contained in the following ROOT-formatted file as TMatrixD objects. A total covariance matrix is also given. Details on the matrices are available in the README file accompanying the fitter package.

The following materials can be used to reproduce the oscillation fit results. To use, unzip the archive file and follow instructions in the included README.
