Abstract:
This thesis presents the measurement of energy dependence of the neutrino-nucleon inclusive
charged current cross section on an isoscalar target in the range 3-50 GeV for neutrinos and 5-
50 GeV energy range for antineutrinos. The data set was collected with the MINOS Near Detector
using the wide band NuMI beam at Fermilab. The size of the charged current sample is 1.94106
neutrino events and 1.60105 antineutrino events.
The flux has been extracted using a low hadronic energy sub-sample of the charged current
events. The energy dependence of the cross section is obtained by dividing the charged current
sample with the extracted flux. The neutrino and antineutrino cross section exhibits a linear dependence
on energy at high energy but shows deviations from linear behavior at low energy. We also
present a measurement of the ratio of antineutrino to neutrino inclusive cross section
