### Nuclear binding energy and transverse momentum imbalance in neutrino-nucleus reaction

Abstract:

Observables based on the final state kinematic imbalances are measured in the mesonless production of $\nu_\mu+A\rightarrow\mu^-+p+X$ in the MINERvA tracker. Components of the muon-proton momentum imbalances parallel ($\delta p_{Ty}$) and perpendicular($\delta p_{Tx}$) to the momentum transfer in the transverse plane are found to be sensitive to the nuclear effects such as Fermi motion, binding energy and non-QE contributions. The QE peak location in $\delta p_{Ty}$ is particularly sensitive ...
