Title: Neutral weak-current two-body contributions in inclusive scattering from {sup 12}C

An {\it ab initio} calculation of the sum rules of the neutral weak response functions in $$^{12}$$C is reported, based on a realistic Hamiltonian, including two- and three-nucleon potentials, and on realistic currents, consisting of one- and two-body terms. We find that the sum rules of the response functions associated with the longitudinal and transverse components of the (space-like) neutral current are largest and that a significant portion ($$\simeq 30$$\%) of the calculated strength is due to two-body terms. This fact may have implications for the MiniBooNE and other neutrino quasi-elastic scattering data on nuclei.
