Title: 
"Understanding" Neutrino Cross Sections in Long Baseline Experiments
Abstract: 
With long-baseline neutrino oscillation measurements entering the era of precision measurements, it is becoming increasingly important to understand the sources of systematic errors. One of the largest sources to date has been neutrino interactions on medium-to-large A nuclei. This seminar will explain which models are used in interaction simulations, how they compare to data, and what types of improvements for better understanding is needed for future analyses and experiments.
