Description

We present the beam systematics study of the neutrino flux in NOvA. Systematic errors on the flux at the near detector (ND), far detector (FD), and the ratio, FD/ND, due the beam-transport and hadron production are estimated. The data from ND are used to constrain the Muon (from Pion-decay) and Kaon yields relevant for the Nue and Numu Flux. Additional constraint on the Kaon is obtained from the data from the ND-on-the-Surface (NDOS), a prototype NOvA detector.
