Preliminary Exam
First Steps for a Joint Analysis of the MINOS and NOvA Experiments
Date: Friday, December 2nd
Time: 9:00 am
Place: 4274 Chamberlin
Speaker: Anna Cooleybeck, Physics Graduate Student
Abstract: The MINOS and NOvA experiments are both long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments, with a focus on measuring 3-flavor oscillation parameters from a muon neutrino beam. While they utilize the same neutrino beam, MINOS is directly on the beam axis and NOvA is 14.6 mrad off axis, giving us the opportunity to constrain beam-related systematic uncertainties. By analyzing data from both these experiments together, we can better understand the uncertainties present while still retaining the unique advantages of each experiment. This talk will discuss this novel analysis technique and present the first steps towards developing a framework for the complete analysis
