Neutrino-nucleus interactions

Abstract.

Inclusive electron scattering cross-sections in the quasielastic and resonance regions for few GeV electrons are well represented in terms of scaling functions and scaling variables, the so-called superscaling analysis (SuSA). The concepts of scaling of the first and second kinds and superscaling are discussed, as are several mechanisms which are known to yield scaling violations. Given the high quality of scaling for cross-sections at appropriate kinematics, it is shown how the ideas can be turned around to provide predictions for both charge-changing and neutral current neutrino reactions with nuclei at comparable kinematics.
