1308.0106 (M. D. Messier et al.)

Extending the NOvA Physics Program    [PDF]

M. D. Messier, for the NOvA Collaboration
Following the precise measurement of $\theta_{13}$ by reactor experiments three main questions remain within the now standard picture of neutrino oscillations: (1) Is the value of $\theta_{23}$ such that the $\nu_3$ state contains more muon flavor, more tau flavor, or equal amounts? (2) What is the neutrino mass hierarchy? (3) Is CP violated in the neutrino sector? The NOvA experiment will address all three of these questions. In each case the measurements are statistics limited motivating exploration of what could be accomplished with additional exposure.
