[Background] A quantitative understanding of neutrino interactions with nuclei is needed for precision era neutrino long baseline experiments (MINOS, NOvA, DUNE) which all use nuclear targets. Pion production is the dominant reaction channel at the energies of these experiments. [Purpose] Investigate the influence of nuclear effects on neutrino-induced pion production cross sections and compare predictions for pion-production with available data. [Method] The Giessen Boltzmann--Uehling… 
The State of the Art of Neutrino Cross Section Measurements
The study of neutrino interactions has recently experienced a renaissance, motivated by the fact that neutrino oscillation experiments depend critically on an accurate models of neutrino
Neutrino–nucleus cross sections for oscillation experiments
Neutrino oscillations physics is entering an era of high precision. In this context, accelerator-based neutrino experiments need a reduction in systematic errors to the level of a few percent. Today,
Cross sections for neutrino and antineutrino induced pion production on hydrocarbon in the few-GeV region using MINERvA
Separate samples of charged-current pion production events representing two semi-inclusive channels $\nu_\mu$-CC($\pi^{+}$) and $\bar{\nu}_{\mu}$-CC($\pi^{0}$) have been obtained using neutrino and

Neutrino event generators are an essential tool needed for the extraction of neutrino mixing parameters, the mass hierarchy and a CP violating phase from long-baseline experiments. In this article I
Neutrino interactions with matter and the MiniBooNE anomaly
The excess of electron-like events measured by MiniBooNE challenges our understanding of neutrinos and their interactions. We review the status of this open problem and ongoing efforts to resolve it.
Present Status of Single Pion Production in Neutrino-Nucleus Reactions
Some of the recent progress in the physics of pion production induced by neutrinos on nucleons and nuclei is reviewed from a theoretical perspective. The importance of Watson's theorem to reconcile
Pion production within the hybrid relativistic plane wave impulse approximation model at MiniBooNE and MINERvA kinematics
The hybrid model for electroweak single-pion production (SPP) off the nucleon, presented in [Gonz\'alez-Jim\'enez et al., Phys. Rev. D 95, 113007 (2017)], is extended here to the case of incoherent
Neutrino Scattering Measurements on Hydrogen and Deuterium: A Snowmass White Paper
Neutrino interaction uncertainties are a limiting factor in current and next-generation experiments probing the fundamental physics of neutrinos, a unique window on physics beyond the Standard Model.
Measurement of νμ charged-current single π0 production on hydrocarbon in the few-GeV region using MINERvA
The antineutrino scattering channel ¯ ν μ CH → μ + π − X (nucleon(s)) is analyzed in the incident energy range 1.5 to 10 GeV using the MINERvA detector at Fermilab. Differential cross sections are
A New Generation of Neutrino Cross Section Experiments: Challenges and Opportunities
Our knowledge of neutrino cross sections at the GeV scale, instrumental to test CP symmetry violation in the leptonic sector, has grown substantially in the last two decades. Still, their precision
