Title: Exclusive µ+Np topologies with ArgoNeuT

The Argon Neutrino Test, ArgoNeuT, is a small scale Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LAr TPC) that is one step towards the construction of large scale LAr TPCs for long-baseline neutrino physics. LArTPCs provide bubble-chamber-like quality images for excellent particle ID and background rejection. Due to its superb capabilities it is well suited for topological analysis by reporting what it sees in a final state. Preliminary analysis of ArgoNeuT’s 0.1 to 10 GeV neutrino µ+Np topologies together with first ever study of proton multiplicities in neutrino-argon interactions was presented and compared with GENIE Monte Carlo generator.
