Type: Oral Presentation Session: Long Baseline Neutrino Program
When fitting to data with low stats and near physical boundaries, extra measures need to be taken to ensure proper statistical coverage. The method NOvA uses is called the Feldman-Cousins procedure, which entails fitting thousands of independent pseudoexperiments to generate acceptance intervals that are then used to correct our fits. The scale required by the Feldman Cousins procedure makes it ex ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Long Baseline Neutrino Program
This talk discusses an updated analysis of neutrino data from the NOvA experiment to search for sterile neutrino oscillations. NOvA consists of two functionally identical liquid scintillator detectors in Fermilab's NuMI neutrino beam: a 300 ton near detector at a 1km baseline, and a 14,000 ton far detector 810km away in Ash River, MN, 14.6 mrad off the beam's central axis. Sterile neutrino oscilla ... More

NOvA is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment which uses the NuMI neutrino beam at Fermilab. Our detectors are functionally-similar liquid scintillator calorimeters, situated 810km apart and 14 mrad off-axis with respect to the the NuMI beam. NOvA's primarily physics goal is a measurement of electron neutrino appearance and muon neutrino disappearance from a muon neutrino beam to constra ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Long Baseline Neutrino Program
An overview of the recent results from the NOvA muon neutrino disappearance analysis is presented. NOvA is an accelerator based neutrino experiment designed to study the electron neutrino appearance in the muon neutrino beam as it travels from the Near Detector facility at Fermilab to the Far Detector in the Northern Minnesota. The NOvA muon neutrino disappearance group has recently introduced new ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Long Baseline Neutrino Program
The NOvA experiment has made measurements of the disappearance of $\nu_\mu$ and the appearance of $\nu_e$ in the NuMI beam at Fermilab. Key to these measurements is the identification of the neutrino flavor and measurement of the neutrino energy, for which NOvA has implemented deep learning algorithms utilizing tools from the field of computer vision. These algorithms, first applied to NOvA's 2016 ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Long Baseline Neutrino Program
The primary goal of the NOvA experiment is to perform sensitive searches for standard three-flavor neutrino oscillations. The experiment is designed to measure electron-neutrino appearance at the Far Detector using the Near Detector to control systematic uncertainties; however, the Near Detector is well suited for searching for possible anomalous short-baseline oscillations. The LSND and MiniBooNE ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Long Baseline Neutrino Program
NOvA (the NuMI Off-Axis $\nu_e$ Appearance Experiment) utilizes a near detector at Fermilab and a far detector 810km away in Ash River, MN, to study the properties of neutrinos. Using a beam originating at Fermilab, NOvA studies neutrino oscillation via the disappearance of $\nu_\mu$, $\bar{\nu}_\mu$ in the beam and the corresponding appearance of $\nu_e$, $\bar{\nu}_e$. Prior results from NOvA ha ... More
