The Role of Cross Sections in the Oscillation Analysis: The T2K Experience

Not scheduled


Clarence Wret (University of Rochester)


The T2K experiment measures long baseline neutrino oscillations with
neutrinos in the 0.1-1.5 GeV energy range. Thanks to
excellent beam performance T2K is rapidly gathering statistics,
increasing the relative importance of the parameterisation of systematics.
Neutrino-nucleus interactions are large contributors to the error
budget at T2K, affecting crucial components such as neutrino energy
estimation and event selection. This talk gives an overview of T2K's
treatment of interaction systematics, the constraints that are placed
upon them, and their impact on oscillation analyses.
