Thesis Defense in 110 PAN
Speaker: Susan Lein, University of Minnesota
Subject:  Muon Neutrino Contained Disappearance in NOvA
This is the public portion of Ms. Lein's Thesis Defense.

The NOvA experiment studies neutrino oscillations in the NuMI neutrino beam from Fermilab. NOvA consists of two liquid scintillator tracking calorimeters placed
14 milliradians off-axis from the beam and 810 km apart. The NOvA experiment started taking data in 2014. This thesis establishes the neutrino energy estimation procedures used to determine the oscillation parameters sin^2 theta_23 and Delta m_{32}^2.
