Title: First MINOS Results from the NuMI Beam

Abstract: The MINOS (Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search) Experiment uses the 735-km baseline NuMI (Neutrinos at the Main Injector) beam to make a precision measurement of the atmospheric neutrino oscillation parameters Delta m^2 and sin^2 (2 theta). This talk reports on the goals and design of the MINOS Experiment and the data, analysis procedures and results from the first data set, which utilized 0.93e20 protons on target. The talk also indicates the anticipated MINOS parameter estimation accuracy after 5 years of data collection and briefly describes the possible future NuMI beam experiment known as NOvA.
