Title: Radiative corrections in electron and neutrino scattering

Abstract: In this seminar, I will motivate and describe a few recent precise calculations of radiative corrections to neutrino- and electron-induced processes. Elastic neutrino-electron, coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus, inverse muon decay cross sections, and neutrino energy spectra from radiative muon, pion, and kaon decays, with quantified uncertainties, will be presented. I will formulate radiative corrections to charged-current elastic neutrino-nucleon scattering and validate the precise relation between electron and muon flavor cross sections for signal events in neutrino oscillation experiments. I will illustrate a new permille-to-percent level effect on (anti)neutrino- and electron-nucleus scattering cross sections due to the exchange of photons with a nuclear medium.
