The CSU NOvA group, led by Prof. Norm Buchanan, made significant contributions to the latest NOvA result, their first utilizing a beam of anti-neutrinos. This is a groundbreaking result and signifies a new milestone for the NOvA collaboration. Graduate student Derek Doyle and Postdoctoral Fellow Steven Calvez were instrumental in performing the final statistical corrections made to the measurement of the anti-neutrino oscillation parameters. These corrections ensured that the results were as accurate as possible and utilized a new high-performance computing technique. Doyle also took part in a study of comparisons between data and simulated predictions. More details can be found in the Source article.
