Abstract

This article summarizes the state of the art of νμ and ν¯μ CC0π cross-section measurements on carbon and argon and discusses the relevant nuclear models, parametrizations and uncertainties in GENIE v3. The CC0π event topology is common in experiments at a few-GeV energy range. Although its main contribution comes from quasielastic interactions, this topology is still not well understood. The GENIE global analysis framework is exploited to analyze CC0π datasets from MiniBooNE, T2K and MINERνA. A partial tune for each experiment is performed, providing a common base for the discussion of tensions between datasets. The results offer an improved description of nuclear CC0π datasets as well as data-driven uncertainties for each experiment. This work is a step towards a GENIE global tune that improves our understanding of neutrino interactions on nuclei. It follows from earlier GENIE work on the analysis of neutrino scattering datasets on hydrogen and deuterium.
