Add to Calendar 9/24/2018 1:00 pm 9/24/2018 America/Chicago Medium and High Energy Physics Seminar: "Significant Excess of Electron-Like Events in the MiniBooNE Short-Baseline Neutrino Experiment" DESCRIPTION:

In this talk, I will present the latest MiniBooNE oscillation results with 12.84×1020 protons on target (POT) ???? appearance data, doubled from the previous oscillation publication, and 11.27×1020 POT ???? appearance data. A total ???? and ???? charged-current quasi-elastic event excess of 460.5±99.0 events (4.7??) is observed. The observed excess is consistent in energy and magnitude with the excess reported by the LSND experiment with a combined significance of 6.0??. The best oscillation fit to the excess has a probability of 21.1% in a two-neutrino interpretation, which would require at least one more neutrino type beyond the three-neutrino paradigm. Future and current experiments to test this excess will be discussed.
