Abstract
MINERvA is a dedicated neutrino-nucleus scattering experiment with multiple nuclear targets in the Neutrinos from the Main Injector (NuMI) beam line at Fermilab. MINERvA can provide high precision measurements of neutrino interaction cross sections in the 1 to 20 GeV energy range in support to current and future oscillation experiments. MINERvA can also provide information about the structure of protons and neutrons and about the dynamics affecting neutrino-nucleus interactions. The heart of the MINERvA detector is a fine-grained scintillating tracking cham-ber, surrounded by electromagnetic and hadronic calorimeters. Carbon, iron and lead targets are used to study the effect of the nuclear medium on neutrino-induced interactions. This document summarizes the most recent MINERvA results
