Title: CCQE results from MINERνA

Abstract

A precision understanding of neutrino and anti-neutrino quasi-elastic interactions is crucial to current and future neutrino oscillation measurements. However, recent experimental results indicate that the nuclear environment of modern neutrino detectors modifies free nucleon cross sections in a variety of ways, many of which are not currently well understood. The MINERνA collaboration aims to make precision measurements of neutrino-nucleon quasi-elastic cross sections, as well as to understand the impact of nuclear effects on these cross sections. We present three preliminary quasi-elastic analyses that are the first steps towards these goals.
