n(p,K)pHE-n(p,K)LE

Preliminaries

- Goal is to measure the antineutrinos from m+ decay (brothers of beam ne’s)

- Antineutrinos fromm+ are the most affected when changing the beam configuration. The technique for the measurement is:

1) Scale pHE and LE nDATA to same POT and subtract

npHE-nLE+C (simulated)

2) Apply a correction C for n from p- and K- parents

3) Fit resulting distribution (top right) using shapes from the MC scaled by parameters parHE and parLE:

x parLE

x parHE

Preliminaries

- More details on the method in minos-doc 2783

- Measurement can also be done with pME data (minos-doc 2706)

- Statistical error with 1.6x1019 POT of pHE data was expected to be ~15% (minos-doc 3230)

- Systematics were addressed in minos-docs 2909 & 3230. In particular:

- Systematic error from background uncertainty is practically negligible on n(m+)LE
- Errors in n(m+)LE determination from horn & target systematics are in the order of ~5-10%
- Systematic errors associated with hadron production uncertainties are yet to be determined. Some on this at the end.

Data & MC

- Data & MC used:

- DATA le010z185i runI: 2.46x1019 POT

- DATA le010z185i runII: 2.21x1019 POT

cedar_phy

- DATA le250z200i runII: 1.41x1019 POT

- MC le010z185i: 4.44x1019 POT

daikon-cedar

all available !

- MC le250z200i: 1.19x1019 POT

- POT values for DATA are after “good beam” cuts.

- The le010z185i data used corresponds to the same data used in the latest CC analysis and is evenly distributed along that period (runI + beginning of runII)

Thanks to Tricia for these pans !

Expected sensitivities

- Before fitting the data tested the routine with fake data.

- Used smoothed MC histograms (shown in grey) to construct scenario.

- Fake data is produced by statistically fluctuating the histograms.
- The fit is done “manually” (no Minuit)

Background pHE

Background LE

- Scenario 1: “best possible”

- Distribution of 1000 fake experiments:

Χ2best fit = 28.6

Best possible stat. error

Accuracy of contour confirmed by distribution of fake experiments

- This is the best measurement we can do with the current amount of pHE data:

90% C.L.

- Scenario 2: “now”

- Distribution of 1000 fake experiments:

Χ2best fit = 28.5

- This is the kind of measurement we expect to do now:

Nominal case

Dχ2=16.9

Best fit

Prob(42.3,28) = 4.1%

Χ2best fit = 25.4

Prob(25.4,28) = 60.6%

pHE(data) – LE(data) + C(MC)

Preliminary results

- Fit results in other conditions:

Consistent with expectation as described in minos-doc 2909

- Difference with “No SKZP” case stems mainly from ~15% difference in low energy (< 10 GeV) region of C:

ratio

SKZP

- How much of this change is attributed to hadron production only by SKZP, and how much to other effects?

Outlook

- How much more can the result be improved? (without taking more data)

- Contours calculated assuming same best fit value and 1.41x1019 POT of pHE data:

For an infinite amount of LE data and LE MC, with current amount of pHE MC (1.3x1019 POT)

LE data =2x1020 POT

LE MC =2.5x1020 POT with current amount of pHE MC

For an infinite amount of pHE MC, LE data and LE MC

→max. goal

LE data =2x1020 POT

LE MC =2.5x1020 POT

pHE MC = 7x1019 POT

- LE data & MC POT of ~2x1020 POT is already “infinite” for our purposes.

- With ~5 times more pHE MC can get close to the max. goal

Summary

- Our preliminary results confirm the SKZP prediction of n(m+) to 1.4s (statistics only)

- A couple of things left to do:
- Run with more data & MC. Need ~5 times more pHE MC.
- Assign a systematic error to our measurement

- A much smaller systematic error could be obtained by doing the measurement with pME data, as shown in minos-doc 2706.

→ What about the two running periods?

- Reweighting in runI or in runII modality does not change the antineutrinos at all.

- What about the background (made mostly of CC nm’s)?
