Hyperon Production in the NuWro Monte Carlo Generator

Upcoming neutrino detectors such as SBND will be exposed to very intense neutrino beams and are predicted to observe thousands of hyperon production events versus the existing dataset of fewer than 100. These processes are of interest as they may be used to identify wrong sign contamination in neutrino beams, test the quark flavour model and search for time reversal violating interactions. These processes have been modelled in the NuWro MC event generator with the ability to include flavour and time reversal symmetry breaking modifications. Interactions between the hyperons and nuclear material have also been implemented. Some samples of the outputs from the generator will be presented to examine the effect of the changes to the model on various observables and to look at the severity of the nuclear effects.
