Some individual jets have been reported to follow helical trajectories (e.g., Hong et al. 2004), possibly due to precession of the jet nozzle induced by torques in binary supermassive black hole systems. A large survey of hundreds of parsec-scale jets enables the question of helical jets to be studied statistically.

Collimator effects in proton planning
To a good approximation, one may assume that the energy distributions of the scattered protons depend only on the ratio ω = E /Emax , where E is the energy of the scattered proton and Emax denotes the energy of the pristine beam (i.e., the energy at nozzle exit).
Collimator effects in proton planning
Finally, the method must be validated for a range of depth values (associated with the energy at nozzle exit).
