Description

The accumulated results of short baseline experiments, which includes the latest MiniBooNE results, leave open possibility CP and/or CPT violating effects observable in a short baseline setting. When the MiniBooNE has finishes its anti-neutrino run at 500 meters, there could well be anomalies in both its neutrino and anti-neutrino data whose understanding will be limited only by the systematic error inherent in a single detector experiment. Those anomalies will only be resolved by running a similar detector at a different distance from the neutrino source. This paper describes the analysis of the BooNE proposal, which seeks to relocate the MiniBooNE detector at a distance of 100-200 meters from the Booster neutrino source. With a minimum of seven times the current MiniBooNE flux, data sufficient for a complete resolution of both neutrino and anti-neutrino anomalies can be accumulated in the near position within the first year of running.
