In science:

First of all, and as noted in Abraham et al. (2008b), Hague et al. (2009), the evidence for clustering is based on an a posteriori analysis, so that it is difficult to quantify the level of significance.
Anisotropy vs chemical composition at ultra-high energies
Anisotropy towards Cen A Let us first discuss the anisotropy toward Cen A, using the most recent PAO dataset, in particular, 12 events located within 18◦ out of a total of 58 events above 55 EeV (Hague et al. 2009), assuming that the clustering is not a statistical accident.
Anisotropy vs chemical composition at ultra-high energies
In the present Section, we investigate how the anisotropy signal with respect to nearby AGN, as reported in Hague et al. (2009) can be used to discriminate the chemical composition at the highest energies.
