Testing of quasielastic neutrino chargedcurrent and twobody meson exchange current models with the MiniBooNE neutrino data and analysis of these processes at energies available at the NOvA experiment
Abstract
The chargedcurrent quasielastic scattering of muon neutrinos on a carbon target is analyzed using the relativistic distortedwave impulse approximation (RDWIA), taking into account the contribution of the twoparticle and twohole meson exchange current (MEC) to the weak response functions. A fit the RDWIA +MEC model to the MiniBooNE neutrino data is performed, and the bestfit value of nucleon axial mass M_{A}≈1.20 GeV is obtained. We also extract the values of the axial form factor F_{A}(Q^{2}) as a function of the squared momentum transfer Q^{2} from the measured d σ /d Q^{2} cross section. The fluxintegrated chargedcurrent quasielasticlike differential cross sections for neutrino scattering at energies of the NOvA experiment are estimated within the RDWIA +MEC approach.
