## 7. Sensitivity

We have tested the analysis methodology by calculating our sensitivity to
each of our hypotheses given that the null hypothesis is true.
Specifically, we take one Monte Carlo sample drawn from the predicted
Bartol flux with no new physics and run it through the analysis as if it
were data. The results are shown in the following figures:

We can also present the result of the conventional analysis as a band of
allowed energy spectra defined by the envelope of curves representing the
90% confidence level boundary in figure 7.3. The energy range in such a
plot is taken as the 5%-95% region in MC (we conservatively marginalize
over OM sensitivity when finding that region).
