Description

I will describe measurements of the muon neutrino and anti-neutrino inclusive charged current cross-sections for neutrino energies spanning 3-50GeV. The data were collected with the MINOS near detector, a magnetized steel/scintillator tracking/sampling calorimeter exposed to the NuMI neutrino beam at Fermilab. I will describe selection of a sample of inclusive CC scattering events, estimation of the neutrino flux, treatment of systemtatic errors, and show our preliminary results.
