Abstract:An experiment that looked for the oscillation vmu => ve was performed using a narrow band ve beam produced by the AGS at Brookhaven National Lab. Both the v, and Ve reactions in our detector are analyzed. The number of v, events found in the detector is compared to the expected background from Monte Carlo calculations and an excess of 22.4±5.6± 4.4 3.8 events above background is found. The excess represents a 3 standard deviation effect and may suggest a neutrino oscillation. The ratio of the acceptance corrected number of Ve and v, events is calculated from the data. The value is R = ve/ vmu = 0.0184 ± .0085.
