Hi MVD family!

I have a question about PndMvdAdvancedPidAlgo::CalcLikelihood

Is there some limitation to calculate likelihood with certain hypothesis. I found that upto 2.4 GeV some values of likelihoods can be found, but over 4 GeV all values are 0.2. Is there some reason? what is the meaning of 0.2, is it default value?

MVD dE/dx works only at low momenta, belox 800 MeV/c. With higher momentum values all the likelihood should be set to the same value (0.2 * 5 = 1), because all the particle hyp are equivalent.
