How to Identify Some Slightly More Complicated Types of Event

If you have enjoyed the challenges so far then you may be interested in learning about some more types of event. These events are rather like the events containing a particle-antiparticle pair that we looked at in an earlier section, but made slightly more complicated, because extra particles have been added.
