Low Energy Beam Neutrino Nucleus Deep Inelastic Scattering at MINERvA

2016 Proceedings of XXIII International Workshop on Deep-Inelastic Scattering — PoS(DIS2015)   unpublished
Neutrinos provide a unique probe of nuclear structure as they interact weakly and couple with partons via the axial as well as the vector current. The MINERvA experiment takes advantage of Fermilab's NuMI beam line and multiple nuclear targets to study neutrino + nucleus interactions. This note presents preliminary results of MINERvA's DIS sample in the neutrino energy (E ν ) range of 5 to 50 GeV, and a mean momentum-transfer squared (Q 2 ) of 4.0 (GeV/c) 2 . Results are presented as ratios of
