Description

We present the prospect for a dimuon analysis at the MINOS Near Detector. A sample of about 10M muon-neutrino charged current events has been accumulated with the MINOS Near Detector. The dimuon analysis focuses on neutrino charm-production where the charmed hadron decays into a positive-muon. Estimates of signal efficiency and background, and the sensitivity to physics parameters will be presented.
