Title: Measurement of neutrino induced charged current neutral pion production cross section at SciBooNE

SciBooNE is a neutrino scattering experiment located in the Booster Neutrino Beam at Fermilab. It collected data from June 2007 to August 2008 to accurately measure muon neutrino and anti-neutrino cross sections on carbon around 1 GeV neutrino energy. In this thesis we present the results on the measurement of the muon neutrino cross section resulting in a μ - plus a single π 0 final state (CC- π 0 channel). The present work will show the steps taken to achieve this result: from the reconstruction improvements to the background extraction. The flux-averaged CC - π 0 production cross section measurement obtained in this thesis < σCC- π 0 > Φ = (5.6 ± 1.9 fit ± 0.7 beam ± 0.5 int - 0.7 det) × 10 -40 cm 2/N at an average energy of 0.89 GeV is found to agree well both with the expectation from the Monte Ca
