Neutral currents and elastic scattering of neutrinos and antineutrinos on a polarized proton target

  • 14 Accesses

Abstract

The processes of elastic scattering of neutrinos and antineutrinos on a polarized proton target are considered on the basis of the Weinberg-Salam gauge theory. Expressions are found for the differential cross sections, spin asymmetry, and the degree of polarization of recoil protons in the reactions indicated. The formulas obtained are analyzed from the position of the latest experimental data on the Weinberg parameter.
