For several decades there has been an interest in studying neutrino scattering on light nuclei, with the hope of increasing knowledge about the theory of weak interactions and electroweak unification. A study of several neutrino induced reactions on light nuclei ($^2$H, $^3$H and $^3$He) is presented here. The cross section for these reactions is evaluated using the nuclear response functions, which holds the information about the nuclear interactions and structure. This approach has been tested for break-up reactions on the deuteron before and is now extended to three-nucleon break-up reactions.

The work discuss the results obtained for the differential and total cross sections for (anti) neutrino-scattering on $^3$H and $^3$He. The realistic semi-phenomenological AV18 potential has been used and the results have been obtained including only the one-body current operator.
The authors utilize an interpolation procedure to obtain the cross sections starting from the nuclear response functions. The accuracy of the method has been tested for scattering on 2H where a direct evaluation of the cross section can be done. The work is well written and the results are interesting; I recommend the publication on SciPost Physics Proceedings.
