Title: First Neutrino Oscillation Results from NO$$\nu$$A

The NO$$\nu$$A experiment aims to study the mixing behavior of neutrinos and anti-neutrinos using the Fermilab NuMI neutrino beam. The experiment collects data at two detectors, one near the neutrino production target at Fermilab; the other 810 km away. The detectors are 14 mrad off the beam axis, which results in an almost monoenergetic beam of 2 GeV neutrinos. The construction of the 14 kT Far Detector and 300 T Near Detector finished in 2014. Since then, NO$$\nu$$A has collected data and we will discuss the first data analyses using 2:74 x $$10^{20}$$ POT searching for muon neutrino disappearance and electron neutrino appearance in the Far Detector.
