Title: Measurement of nu(mu) and anti-nu(mu) induced neutral current single pi0 production cross sections on mineral oil at E(nu) ~ O(1- GeV)

Abstract

MiniBooNE reports the first absolute cross sections for neutral current single $$\pi^0$$ production on $$CH_2$$ induced by neutrino and antineutrino interactions measured from the largest sets of NC $$\pi^0$$ events collected to date. The principal result consists of differential cross sections measured as functions of $$\pi^04$$ momentum and $$\pi^0$$ angle averaged over the neutrino flux at MiniBooNE. We find total cross sections of (4.76+/-0.05_{stat}+/-0.40_{sys})*$$10^{-40} cm^2$$/nucleon at a mean energy of <$$E_\nu$$>= 808 MeV and (1.48+/-0.05_{stat}+/-0.14_{sys})*$$10^{-40} cm^2$$/nucleon at a mean energy of <$$E_\nu$$>= 664 MeV for $$\nu_\mu$$ and $$\bar\nu_\mu$$ induced production, respectively. In addition, we have included measurements of the neutrino and antineutrino total cross sections for incoherent exclusive NC $$1\pi^0$$ production corrected for the effects of final state interactions to compare to prior results.
