A Linear Programming Approach to Attainable Cram\'{e}r-Rao type Bounds and Randomness Condition II
In particular, we have analysed a set of EAS obtained during 51 days of the array running for which the average atmospheric pressure was within 740–745 mm Hg, and daily variation did not exceed 10 mm.
Distribution of EAS arrival times according to data of the EAS-1000 prototype array
To provide stationarity of the time series under consideration, time intervals between EAS arrival times were adjusted to a joint value of atmospheric pressure equal to 742 mm Hg.
