Light Sterile Neutrinos: A White Paper
This white paper addresses the hypothesis of light sterile neutrinos based on recent anomalies observed in neutrino experiments and the latest astrophysical data.
Theory of neutrinos: a white paper
This paper is a review of the present status of neutrino mass physics, which grew out of an APS sponsored study of neutrinos in 2004. After a discussion of the present knowledge of neutrino masses
We review the particle physics aspects of neutrino-less double beta decay. This process can be mediated by light massive Majorana neutrinos (standard interpretation) or by something else
Lepton number and flavour violation in TeV-scale left-right symmetric theories with large left-right mixing
A bstractThe various diagrams leading to neutrinoless double beta decay in the left-right symmetric model have different relative magnitudes, depending on the scale of new physics. Neutrinos acquire
Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay: Status and Prospects
Neutrinoless double-beta decay is a forbidden, lepton-number-violating nuclear transition whose observation would have fundamental implications for neutrino physics, theories beyond the Standard
Coherent neutrino-nucleus scattering and new neutrino interactions
A bstractWe investigate the potential to probe new neutrino physics with future experiments measuring coherent neutrino-nucleus scattering. Experiments with high statistics should become feasible
Comparing trimaximal mixing and its variants with deviations from tri-bimaximal mixing
We analyze in detail the predictions of “trimaximal” neutrino mixing, which is defined by a mixing matrix with identical second column elements. This column is therefore identical to the second
Fits to SO(10) grand unified models
A bstractWe perform numerical fits of Grand Unified Models based on SO(10), using various combinations of 10-, 120- and 126-dimensional Higgs representations. Both the supersymmetric and
Neutrinoless double beta decay and neutrino physics
The connection of neutrino physics with the neutrinoless double-beta decay is reviewed. After presenting the current status of the Pontecorvo–Maki–Nakagawa–Sakata matrix and the theoretical
Probing neutrino coupling to a light scalar with coherent neutrino scattering
A bstractLarge neutrino event numbers in future experiments measuring coherent elastic neutrino nucleus scattering allow precision measurements of standard and new physics. We analyze the current and
