Nuclear Effects in Neutrino Interactions and Their Impact on the Determination of Oscillation Parameters
(a) Inclusive electron-carbon cross-section at beam energy MeV and electron scattering angle , plotted as a function of the energy loss . The data points are taken from . (b) Flux averaged double differential CCQE cross-section measured by the MiniBooNE collaboration , shown as a function of the kinetic energy of the outgoing muon. The upper and lower panels correspond to different values of the muon scattering angle. Theoretical results have been obtained using the same spectral functions and vector form factors employed in the calculation of the electron scattering cross-section of the left panel, and a dipole parameterization of the axial form factor with GeV.
