MINOS is a long-baseline two-detector neutrino oscillation
experiment that uses a high intensity muon neutrino beam to
investigate the phenomena of neutrino oscillations. The
neutrino beam is produced by the NuMI facility at Fermilab,
Batavia, Illinois, and is observed at near and far
detectors placed 734 km apart. The neutrino interactions in
the near detector are used to measure the initial muon
neutrino flux. The vast majority of neutrinos travel
through the near detector and Earth matter without
interactions. A fraction of muon neutrinos oscillate into
other avors resulting in the disappearance of muon
neutrinos at the far detector. This thesis presents a
measurement of the muon neutrino oscillation parameters in
the framework of the two-neutrino oscillation hypothesis.
