    Observation of ν_μ→ν_e Oscillation in the T2K Experiment
    Springer | Particle and Nuclear Physics | January 25, 2016 | ISBN-10: 4431558357 | 199 pages | pdf | 11.2 mb

    Authors: Ieki, Kei
    Nominated as an outstanding contribution by Kyoto University's Physics Department in 2013
    Provides a detailed description of the fine-grained detector
    Summarizes the details of the complicated neutrino oscillation analysis method, including the prediction of neutrino flux and cross section

    In this thesis the author contributes to the analysis of neutrino beam data collected between 2010 and 2013 to identify ν_μ→ν_e events at the Super-Kamiokande detector. In particular, the author improves the pion-nucleus interaction uncertainty, which is one of the dominant systematic error sources in T2K neutrino oscillation measurement. In the thesis, the measurement of ν_μ→ν_e oscillation in the T2K (Tokai to Kamioka) experiment is presented and a new constraint on δ_CP is obtained. This measurement and the analysis establish, at greater than 5σ significance, the observation of ν_μ→ν_e oscillation for the first time in the world. Combining the T2K ν_μ→ν_e oscillation measurement with the latest findings on oscillation parameters including the world average value of θ_13 from reactor experiments, the constraint on the value of δ_CP at the 90% confidence level is obtained. This constraint on δ_CP is an important step towards the discovery of CP violation in the lepton sector.
