Making high-precision measurements of neutrino oscillation parameters requires an unprecedented understanding of neutrino-nucleus scattering. In this work, we present the progress towards the first charged current differential cross sections in kinematic imbalance variables. We use events with a single muon above 100 MeV/c, a single final state proton above 300 MeV/c, and no final state pions recorded by the MicroBooNE liquid argon time projection chamber detector. These
variables characterize the imbalance in the plane transverse and longitudinal to an incoming neutrino. Thus, they act as a direct probe of nuclear effects such as final state interactions, Fermi motion, and multi-nucleon processes. Our measurement allows us to constrain systematic uncertainties associated with neutrino oscillation results performed by near-future experiments of the
Short Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program, as well as by future large-scale experiments like DUNE.
