Background: C-12 has been and is still widely used in neutrino-nucleus scattering and oscillation experiments. More recently, Ar-40 has emerged as an important nuclear target for current and future experiments. Liquid argon time projection chambers (LArTPCs) possess various advantages in measuring electroweak neutrino-nucleus cross sections. Concurrent theoretical research is an evident necessity. Purpose: Ar-40 is larger than 12C, and one expects nuclear effects to play a bigger role in…
