Title: Neutrino oscillations with the MINOS, MINOS+, T2K, and NOvA experiments

Abstract

Our paper discusses results and near-term prospects of the long-baseline neutrino experiments MINOS, MONOS+, T2K and NOvA. The non-zero value of the third neutrino mixing angle θ13 allows experimental analysis in a manner which explicitly exhibits appearance and disappearance dependencies on additional parameters associated with mass-hierarchy, CP violation, and any non-maximal θ23. Our current and near-future experiments begin the era of precision accelerator long-baseline measurements and lay the framework within which future experimental results will be interpreted.
