Particle Physics Seminar

"Measuring CCQE-like Cross Sections in MINERvA: when statistics meet precision"

Presented by Mateus F. Carneiro, Oregon State University

Thursday, February 14, 2019, 3:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

MINERvA is a detector build to measure neutrino-nucleus cross sections. As we move towards more precise measurements, cross sections are of extreme importance to the future of neutrino physics. This talk will walk through all the steps necessary to simulate, select signal and measure a CCQE cross section while we test different nuclear models. New preliminary MINERvA results using the new configuration of the NuMI beam will be presented.
