Title: Search for flavor-changing non-standard neutrino interactions by MINOS

Here, we report new constraints on flavor-changing non-standard neutrino interactions from the MINOS long-baseline experiment using $$\nu_{e}$$ appearance candidate events from a predominantly $$\nu_{\mu}$$ beam. Furthermore, we used a statistical selection algorithm to separate $$\nu_{e}$$ candidates from background events, enabling an analysis of the combined MINOS neutrino and antineutrino data. We also observe no deviations from standard neutrino mixing, and thus place constraints on the non-standard interaction matter effect, $$|\varepsilon_{e\tau}|$$, and phase, $$(\delta_{CP}+\delta_{e\tau})$$, using a thirty-bin likelihood fit.
