Title: Neutrino-Nucleus Cross Section within the Extended Factorization Scheme

Abstract

The factorization scheme, based on the impulse approximation and the spectral function formalism, has been recently generalized to allow the description of electromagnetic nuclear interactions driven by two-nucleon currents. We have extended this framework to the case of weakly charged and neutral currents, and carried out calculations of the double-differential neutrino-carbon and neutrino-oxygen cross sections using two different models of the target spectral functions. The results, showing a moderate dependence on the input spectral function, confirm that our approach provides a consistent treatment of all reaction mechanisms contributing to the signals detected by accelerator-based neutrino experiments.
