Neutrino Interactions in the GeV regime

Understanding neutrino interactions in the GeV regime is essential for the current and next generation accelerator-based neutrino programs. Recently, intensive experimental efforts have been made to control uncertainties arising from various nuclear effects in neutrino oscillation measurements. MINERvA in the USA and T2K in Japan are the leading experiments to study neutrino interactions, while for the future oscillation experiments DUNE and Hyper-K, suites of sophisticated near detectors are under design. The success of these efforts will deliver the precision needed to explore physics beyond the Standard Model, most importantly CP violation in the neutrino sector. As particle detectors are constantly improved, neutrino interaction measurements have entered a new era. New insights provided by kinematic correlations of final-state particles are proven to be important in understanding nuclear effects in neutrino interactions. In this seminar, I will introduce the application of final-state kinematic correlations in current neutrino experiments and their perspective for future programs.
