Abstract

[Now that the Near Detector background rates have been measured it is necessary to convert them into Far Detector rates. The extraction of the Far-Near conversions from the MC used to predict (extrapolate) the NC and vμ CC components, as well as the details on the prediction of the beam ve and vτ CC components, are shown in Sect. 7.1. In our analysis it is not only necessary to predict the backgrounds but also the amount of signal that would be observed in the case of a nonzero θ13. Section 7.2 shows how the MC portrays the signal well and how, after applying a small correction due to the mismodeling of hadronic showers, it can be used to obtain the ve CC selection efficiency at the Far Detector. Section 7.3 includes a summary of all the predictions.]
