  1. Walter, C, Cross-section effects in the super-kamiokande tau appearance analysis, AIP Conference Proceedings, vol. 1405 (2011), pp. 186-191 [doi] .

    In this talk, I explain the search for tau neutrino appearance in the atmospheric neutrino flux at Super-Kamiokande with a particular emphasis on the effect deep inelastic cross section uncertainties have on interpreting the result. In particular, I explain why the normalization of the DIS cross-section also needs to be treated as a parameter in the fit of tau normalization, and show how a neural net based on event parameters can separate various cross-section modes in the background sample. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.
