## Abstract

The total ν_{μ} and ν_{μ} nucleon charged-current cross sections have been measured in BEBC filled with deuterium and exposed to the wide-band neutrino and antineutrino beams at the CERN-SPS. Assuming a linear energy dependence for the cross sections, σ = aE(-_{ν}, we obtained the coefficients a_{νN = 0.62 ± 0.05 and aνN = 0.33 ± 0.03} (in units of 10^{-38} cm^{2}/GeV), where the quoted error is mainly systematic. The ratio of the cross sections is σ_{νN}/σ_{νN} = 0.53 ± 0.03. We also determined the ratio of the charged-current cross section for neutrino interactions on neutrons and protons R = σ_{νn}/σ_{νp} = 2.10 ± 0.08 (statistical) ±0.22 (sysetmatic). The dependence of R on the variables x, y and E_{ν} is discussed.
