Comment on "Electromagnetic dissociation of B-8 and the astrophysical S factor for Be-7(p,gamma)B-8"
Snover, K.; Junghans, A.; Mohrmann, E.
Recently, Davids and Typel recommended a "low" value of S-17(0) based on fits to published direct and Coulomb dissociation data, in which they excluded the precise result of Junghans We show that their statistical analysis is incorrect due to a substantial underestimate of the experimental uncertainties, and that there is no reason to exclude the Junghans result based on statistical arguments.
