Charged current scattering of nu_mu on 12C has been studied using a pi+ decay-in-flight nu_mu beam at the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility. A sample of 56.8 +- 9.6 events satisfying criteria for the exclusive reaction 12C + nu_mu -> mu- + 12N_g.s. was obtained using the large Liquid Scintillator Neutrino Detector (LSND). The observed flux-averaged cross section, (6.6 +- 1.0 +- 1.0) x 10^-41 cm^2, agrees well with reliable theoretical expectations. A measurement was also obtained for the…

High-lying excited states in Gamow Teller strength and their roles in neutrino reactions
The Gamow Teller (GT) transition strengths deduced from charge exchange reactions (CEXRs) are very helpful for understanding the nuclear reaction induced by neutrinos, in particular, by the solar
Semiphenomenological spectral functions in neutrino scattering
We present a model for lepton-nucleus interaction which has been developed in a framework successully used to describe a variety of nuclear reactions. It is based on the local density approximation
A Unified Empirical Model for Quasielastic Interactions of Neutrino and Antineutrino with Nuclei
We propose a simple empirical model for evaluating the quasielastic neutrino- and antineutrino-nucleus cross sections, based on the conventional relativistic Fermi-gas model and the notion of running
