Very careful examination indicated that two key formulas in our paper “Neutron Time Interval Distributions with Background Neutrons”1 had errors. We revise here the derivation and results for the probability to obtain a count between and following a trigger count when the neutrons come both from fission chains and either correlated backgrounds or an external random source, Eqs. (76) and (79) (Ref. 1).
