Radiative corrections to radiative neutrino production are discussed. One loop corrections are briefly reviewed. After emphasizing the importance of higher order QED corrections, their implementation using the Structure Functions approach is described. Next, the inclusion of the main weak corrections using the ‘star’ scheme is explained. Finally some results are presented, showing effects in the range 5–6% with respect to the pure one loop corrected cross-section. Also some comparisons with another calculation featuring multiphoton generation are shown, and good agreement is found between them, both for the total cross-section and the photonic distributions.
