About the INPA Seminars

All seminars are on Fridays (unless otherwise noted) and start at 12:00 (noon) with a brief presentation of the weekly scientific news. Typically the talks end by 13:00. The seminars take place in Bldg. 50A, room 5132.

The committee members are:

The following Seminar schedule for the Institute for Nuclear and Particle Astrophysics is tentative. The seminar becomes final usually a few days before the Friday of the talk.

VIRTUAL INPA SEMINAR – Adrien Hourlier (MIT)

October 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Speaker: Adrien Hourlier (MIT)

Title: MiniBooNE Oscillation Results with Complete Dataset

Abstract:

The MiniBooNE experiment, located on the Booster Neutrino Beamline at Fermilab, reports a total excess of 638.0+/-132.8 electron-like events (4.8σ) from a data sample corresponding to 18.75×10^20 protons-on-target in neutrino mode, which is a 46% increase in the data sample with respect to previously published results, and 11.27 × 10^20 protons-on-target in antineutrino mode. The additional statistics allow several studies to address questions on the source of the excess. I will discuss how we can use distributions such as beam timing and the radial distribution to disfavor some of the possible explanation for the source of the excess such as an excess of entering or exiting photons.
