WG2: Cross-section (Theory) and generators

Mailing list: CENF-ND-Wg2 Microsoft Outlook e-mail file



  • Marco Martini (CEA, Paris)
  • Federico Sanchez (IFAE/BIST, Barcelona)

This working group will focus on the capability of theoretical models and Monte Carlo generators to describe neutrino interactions. Starting from a thorough comparison of existing models with experimental data, the group will foster and participate in the improvement of event generators.

NEW Reminder: Next CENF-ND general meeting (via vydio) in September

  • In preparation of that meeting, the WGs should auto-organise: define conveners and set regular WG meetings.
  • Given the heterogeneity of the membership, and the need to appropriate the existing knowledge, the first meeting could be devoted to summarise, merge and digest the existing studies for the topics of interest of each WG.
  • Feel free to post material, add link to documents, events etc in the twiki


  • Review status of theoretical models and neutrino generators vs data, identify areas of development.
  • Comparisons with electron scattering data if available in the generators.
  • Generate a test database with available data.
  • Stimulate new/complementary experimental programs where needed.
  • Address in detail the electron-muon and neutrino-antineutrino differences, extrapolate achievable precision.
  • Lattice calculation of form factors.
  • Breemstrahlung correction for electron neutrino interactions.
  • Active promotion of the field inside the nuclear physics community in Europe.
