Abstract [en]

Calculations of sensitivities of future experiments are a necessary ingredient in experimental high energy physics. Especially in the context of measurements of the neutrino oscillation parameters extensive studies are performed to arrive at the optimal configuration. In this note we clarify the definition of sensitivity as often applied in these studies. In addition, we examine two of the most common. methods to calculate sensitivity from a statistical perspective using a toy model. The importance of inclusion of uncertainties in nuisance parameters for the interpretation of sensitivity calculations is pointed out.
