We report measurements of oscillation parameters from ν μ and ν ̄μ disappearance using beam and atmospheric data from MINOS. The data comprise exposures of 10.71×1020 protons on target in the ν μ -dominated beam, 3.36×1020 protons on target in the ν ̄μ -enhanced beam, and 37.88 kton yr of atmospheric neutrinos. Assuming identical ν and ν̄ oscillation parameters, we measure |Δm2|=(2.41-0.10+0.09)×10 - 3 eV2 and sinâ¡ 2(2θ)=0.950-0.036+0.035. Allowing independent ν and ν̄ oscillations, we measure antineutrino parameters of |Δm ̄ 2|=(2.50-0.25+0.23)×10 - 3 eV2 and sinâ¡ 2(2θ̄)=0.97-0.08+0.03, with minimal change to the neutrino parameters. © 2013 American Physical Society.
