Luke Corwin (South Dakota School of Mines and Technology)


The 40kt DUNE Far Detector, located at the Sanford Underground
Research Facility, will offer unique capabilities for the study of
atmospheric neutrinos. Due to the detector¹s excellent energy resolutions,
angular resolutions, and particle ID capabilities, atmospheric neutrino
analyses in DUNE can provide valuable information about 3-flavor
oscillations, despite the relatively modest statistics. These data
provide a complementary analysis approach to beam neutrinos, and can help
resolve ambiguities in beam-only analyses. In this talk we will focus on
the determination of the mass hierarchy, octant of theta23, and
measurement of Delta_CP using atmospheric neutrinos in DUNE.
