2K recent results: neutrino oscillations and neutrino-nucleus interactions

The T2K experiment is a long baseline experiment located in Japan. Since its beginning, T2K is measuring neutrino oscillation parameters with increasing precision and is starting to shed light on the famous (and still unknown) possible CP violation phase and neutrino mass hierarchy. After an introduction about the experiment, I will describe how we perform the oscillation analysis and show the most recent results. I will then move on another field where T2K have produced word-leading results, that is the neutrino-nucleus interactions. After a brief description of the T2K strategy for the neutrino cross section measurements, I will detail some of the latest results. An appetizer about the future of T2K (T2K-II and Hyper- Kamiokande) will conclude the seminar.
