Title: Hadronic Interaction Modelling in MINOS

Abstract

The Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation search (MINOS) uses two detectors separated by 735 km to measure a beam of neutrinos created by the Neutrinos at the Main Injector (NuMI) facility at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The experiment has recently reported an observation of {nu}{mu} disappearance consistent with neutrino oscillations. We describe the manner in which the experiment's results depend on the correct understanding and modeling of hadronic systems.
