Title: New anti-neutrino cross-section results from MiniBooNE

The first measurements of antineutrino charged-current quasielastic (ν{sup ¯}{sub μ} CCQE, ν{sub µ} + N → µ{sup +} + N{sup ′}) and neutral-current elastic (ν{sup ¯}{sub μ} NCE, ν{sub µ} + N → ν{sub µ} + N) cross sections with 〈E{sub ν{sup ¯}}〉<1 GeV are presented. To maximize the precision of these measurements, many data-driven background measurements were executed, including a first demonstration of charge separation using a non-magnetized detector. Apart from extending our knowledge of antineutrino interactions by probing a new energy range, these measurements constrain signal and background processes for current and future neutrino oscillation experiments and also carry implications for intra-nuclear interactions.
