Subject: Multi-nucleon effects in neutrino-carbon interactions -- results from the MINERvA experiment.

Current and future neutrino oscillation experiments will depend on accurate neutrino interaction models in order to measure oscillation parameters and explore for CP violation. To support this, recently updated models for neutrino-nucleus interactions are compared to new cross sections measured by the MINERvA experiment. These results cover low momentum transfer events from quasi-elastic to resonance production, which are the most important for oscillation measurements. Discussion will include the impact on oscillation experiments and also the neutrino view of these multi-nucleon effects.
