Title: NEUTRINO-PRODUCTION OF CHARM AND THE STRANGENESS ASYMMETRY OF THE NUCLEON.

Interest in the strange nucleon sea has been renewed when it was realized that the strangeness asymmetry s{sup -} = s - {bar s} plays a prominent role in the interpretation of the NuTeV weak mixing angle anomaly. The author reviews the NLO QCD calculation of the neutrino-production of opposite-sign dimuons as the experimental signature of the strange quark parton density. Results from a recent CTEQ fit are presented and discussed with respect to their stability under NLO corrections and their impact on the NuTeV measurement.
