1  ADAMSON 2012B reports the atmospheric neutrino results obtained with MINOS far detector in 2,553 live days (an exposure of 37.9 kton$\cdot{}$yr). This result is obtained with a sample of high resolution contained-vertex muons. The quoted error is statistical only.
2  ASHIE 2005 results are based on an exposure of 92 kton yr during the complete Super-Kamiokande I running period. The analyzed data sample consists of fully-contained single-ring ${{\mathit \mu}}$-like events with visible energy $>$ 1.33 GeV and partially-contained events. All partially-contained events are classified as ${{\mathit \mu}}$-like. Upward-going events are those with $-1<$ cos(zenith angle) $<-0.2$ and downward-going events are those with 0.2$<$ cos(zenith angle) $<$1. The ${{\mathit \mu}}$-like up-down ratio for the multi-GeV data deviates from 1 (the expectation for no atmospheric ${{\mathit \nu}_{{\mu}}}$ oscillations) by more than 12 standard deviations.
