This figure shows the allowed region for the neutrino oscillation parameters represented by the area inside the contour. The black contour is the result from MINOS using its combined data set of beam and atmospheric neutrinos and antineutrinos, where the star corresponds to the best fit to the data. We compare this with what we would get by analyzing the data set from beam neutrinos only, shown in red. Neutrinos are among the most mysterious particles that make up the…
