Abstract:
The Tokai-to-Kamioka (T2K) experiment is a second generation long-baseline neutrino experiment and the first to use an off-axis neutrino beam to produce narrow neutrino energy spectrum. T2K was designed to measure with precision the atmospheric mixing parameters, and also look for evidence of non-zero θ13. T2K's near detector (ND280) provides constraints on the beam flux and neutrino cross-section uncertainties, as well as making valuable cross-section measurements. This thesis describes an oscillation analysis that uses samples from both near and far detectors. Importantly, vμ and Ve samples at the far detector are combined to produce a joint oscillation analysis. A Markov chain Monte Carlo is used to construct the Bayesian posterior distribution by sampling a likelihood function. From the Bayesian posterior distribution, the oscillation parameters of interest and their errors are estimated.
