Studying crowd behavior at MINERvA

These physicists lead this analysis: Minerba Betancourt (left) and Tammy Walton (middle) of Fermilab, and Anushree Ghosh (right) of Federico Santa MarĂ­a Technical University.

MINERvA makes the first ever measurement of the interaction planes of the three particles in a neutrino event.
