Title: MINERvA’s flux prediction

Here, the MINERvA (Main INjector ExpeRiment: νA) experiment is focused on the measurement of neutrino cross sections on various nuclear targets. For this kind of study it is crucial to know precisely neutrino flux. MINERvA uses the NuMI (Neutrinos at the Main Injector) beam produced at Fermilab. The recent study on the evaluation of the beam and its uncertainty is presented. The NuMI beam is also used by other neutrino experiment, like MINOS, ArgoNeuT, PEANUT, and NOvA, therefore, the results can be used by other collaborations.
