Measurement of the disappearance of muon neutrino in 250 km long baseline experiment
This thesis presents the results of the first accelerator experiment of the neutrino oscillation with 250 km long base line. Muon neutrinos are generated by 12 GeV proton synchrotron, travel 250 km,
Indications of neutrino oscillation in a 250 km long-baseline experiment.
TLDR
The K2K experiment observes indications of neutrino oscillation: a reduction of nu(mu) flux together with a distortion of the energy spectrum, which is better matched to the expected spectrum with neutrinos oscillation than without.

Evidence for oscillation of atmospheric neutrinos
We present an analysis of atmospheric neutrino data from a 33.0 kton yr (535-day) exposure of the Super-Kamiokande detector. The data exhibit a zenith angle dependent deficit of muon neutrinos which
