Accelerating NOvA's Feldman-Cousins procedure using high performance computing platforms
In order to assess the compatibility between models containing physically constrained parameters and small-signal data, uncertainties often must be calculated by Monte Carlo simulation to account for non-normally distributed errors. This is the case for neutrino oscillation experiments, where neutrino-matter weak interactions are rare and beam intensity at the far site is low. The NuMI Off-axis νe Appearance (NOvA) collaboration attempts to measure the parameters governing neutrino oscillations within the PMNS oscillation model by comparing model predictions to a small data set of neutrino ...
