Nuclear Effects in Neutrino Interactions and Their Impact on the Determination of Oscillation Parameters
(a) Neutrino energy distribution at MeV and (upper panel) and GeV and (lower panel), reconstructed from (45) using pairs of () values sampled from the probability distributions associated with the oxygen spectral function of . (SF) and the RFGM, with Fermi momentum MeV and removal energy MeV (FG). The arrows point to the values of obtained from (46). (b) Differential cross-section of the process , at MeV and (upper panel) and GeV and (lower panel), as a function of the incoming neutrino energy. The solid line shows the results of the full calculation, carried out within the approach of [15, 52], whereas the dashed line has been obtained neglecting the effects of FSI. The dot-dash line corresponds to the RFG model with Fermi momentum MeV and removal energy MeV. The arrow points to the value of obtained from (46).
