Abstract

We report on a new analysis of neutrino oscillations in MINOS using the complete set of accelerator and atmospheric data. The analysis combines the nu(mu) disappearance and nu(e) appearance data using the three-flavor formalism. We measure vertical bar Delta m(32)(2)vertical bar = [2.28-2.46] x 10(-3) eV(2) (68% C.L.) and sin(2)theta(23) = 0.35-0.65 (90% C.L.) in the normal hierarchy, and vertical bar Delta m(32)(2)vertical bar = [2.32-2.53] x 10(-3) eV(2) (68% C.L.) and sin(2)theta(23) = 0.34-0.67 (90% C.L.) in the inverted hierarchy. The data also constrain delta(CP), the theta(23) octant degeneracy and the mass hierarchy; we disfavor 36% (11%) of this three-parameter space at 68% (90%) C.L.
