Abstract:
The NOvA (NuMI Off-axis \nu_{e} Appearance) experiment is a two-detector, long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment hosted by Fermilab. The primary goal is to measure neutrino oscillation parameters associated with \nu_\mu \rightarrow \nu_{\mu} disappearance and \nu_\mu \rightarrow \nu_{e} appearance over a distance of 810 km. These measurements require correct modeling of final state particle kinematics from charged-current (CC) neutrino interactions. The \nu_{\mu} and \nu_{e} CC inclusive cross sections are of particular importance being the signals measured in oscillation measurements. The high rate of neutrino interactions in the NOvA near detector located at Fermilab presents an excellent opportunity for neutrino-nucleus cross section measurements. We present the motivations, analysis techniques and current status of the \nu_{\mu} and \nu_{e} CC inclusive double-differential cross-section measurements using neutrino interactions recorded in the NOvA near detector.
