Description

Neutrino cross section measurements are important for current and future generation neutrino long baseline experiments, which measure neutrino mixing parameters. Measurements of neutrino cross sections help to constrain and validate neutrino-nucleon interaction models. The current CCQE neutrino cross sections from MiniBooNE and MINERvA along with the T2K data have strong disagreement with the predictions from neutrino generators. This talk looks into possibilities to describe this discrepancy such as the neutrino-nucleon interaction models from Nieves et. al.
