A precision measurement of the double-differential production cross-section, dσ + /dpdΩ, for pions of positive charge, performed in the HARP experiment is presented. The incident particles are protons of 12.9 GeV/c momentum impinging on an aluminium target of 5% nuclear interaction length. The measurement of this cross-section has a direct application to the calculation of the neutrino flux of the K2K experiment. After cuts, 210 000 secondary tracks reconstructed in the forward spectrometer… Expand

Unexplained excess of electronlike events from a 1-GeV neutrino beam.
TLDR
The MiniBooNE Collaboration observes unexplained electronlike events in the reconstructed neutrino energy range from 200 to 475 MeV, and the shape of the excess in several kinematic variables is consistent with being due to either nu_{e} and nu[over ]_{e] charged-current scattering or nu_{mu} neutral- current scattering with a photon in the final state.
