The first results from the KamLAND experiment in conjunction with the global solar neutrino data has demonstrated striking ability to constrain them 2 (�m 2 ) very pre- cisely. However the allowed range of �� (�12) did not change much with the inclusion of the KamLAND results. In this paper we probe if future data from KamLAND can increase the accuracy of the allowed range in �� and conclude that even after 3 kton-year of statistics and most optimistic error estimates, KamLAND may find it hard… 
On the Measurement of Solar Neutrino Oscillation Parameters with KamLAND
Abstract A new reactor power plant Shika-2, with a power of approximately 4 GW and at a distance of about 88 km from the KamLAND detector is scheduled to start operating in March 2006. We study the
Testing the solar LMA region with KamLAND data
We investigate the potential of 3 kiloton-years (kTy) of KamLAND data to further constrain the Δm2 and tan2θ values compared to those presently allowed by existing KamLAND and global solar data. We
Solar neutrino oscillation parameters after KamLAND
We explore the impact of the data from the KamLAND experiment in constraining neutrino mass and mixing angles involved in solar neutrino oscillations. In particular, we discuss the precision with
Update of the solar neutrino oscillation analysis with the 766 Ty KamLAND spectrum
Abstract We investigate the impact of the 766.3 Ty KamLAND spectrum data on the determination of the solar neutrino oscillation parameters. We show that the observed spectrum distortion in the
Solar neutrino oscillation phenomenology
This article summarises the status of the solar neutrino oscillation phenomenology at the end of 2002 in the light of the SNO and KamLAND results. We first present the allowed areas obtained from
Global Analysis of Neutrino Oscillation
We present the constraints on neutrino oscillation parameters Δ m ⊙ 2 and θ ⊙ governing the solar neutrino oscillations from two generation analysis of solar and KamLAND data. We include the latest
Detection of Geoneutrinos: Can We Make the Gnus Work for Us?
The detection of electron anti-neutrinos from natural radioactivity in the earth has been a goal of neutrino researchers for about half a century. It was accomplished by the KamLAND Collaboration in
Measuring θ12 despite an uncertain reactor neutrino spectrum
Abstract The recently discovered 5–7 MeV excess in the reactor neutrino spectral structure, corresponding to a prompt energy of 4–6 MeV, highlights that the uncertainty in the reactor neutrino
Neutrinoless double beta decay, the inverted hierarchy, and precision determination of θ12
Ruling out the inverted neutrino hierarchy with neutrinoless double beta decay experiments is possible if a limit on the effective mass below the minimal theoretically possible value is reached. We
Constraints on neutrino oscillation parameters from the SNO salt phase data
Abstract The physics implications of the just published salt phase data from the SNO experiment are examined. The effect of these data on the allowed ranges of the solar neutrino oscillation


The solar neutrino problem after the first results from KamLAND
Abstract The first results from the KamLAND experiment have provided confirmational evidence for the Large Mixing Angle (LMA) Mikheyev–Smirnov–Wolfenstein (MSW) solution to the solar neutrino
Determining the oscillation parameters by solar neutrinos and KamLAND
Abstract The neutrino oscillation experiment KamLAND has provided us with the first evidence for ν e disappearance, coming from nuclear reactors. We have combined their data with all solar neutrino
Combining the first KamLAND results with solar neutrino data
We consider the impact of the recent KamLAND data on neutrino oscillations, the first terrestrial neutrino experiment that can probe the solar neutrino anomaly. By combining the first 145.1 days of
Global analysis of solar neutrino and KamLAND data
A global analysis of the data from all the solar neutrino experiments combined with the recent KamLAND data is presented. A formula frequently used in the literature gives survival probability for
Solar neutrinos before and after KamLAND
We use the recently reported KamLAND measurements on oscillations of reac- tor anti-neutrinos, together with the data of previously reported solar neutrino experiments, to show that: (1) the total 8
LMA MSW solution of the solar neutrino problem and first KamLAND results
The first KamLAND results are shown to be in very good agreement with the predictions made on the basis of the solar neutrino data and the LMA realization of the MSW mechanism. We perform a combined

We study the implication of the first neutral current (NC) data from SNO. We perform model independent and model dependent analyses of the solar neutrino data. The inclusion of the first SNO NC data

We analyze the energy spectrum of reactor neutrino events recently observed in the Kamioka Liquid scintillator Anti-Neutrino Detector (KamLAND) and combine them with solar and terrestrial neutrino
Reviving the energy independent suppression of the solar neutrino flux
We explore the possibility of an energy independent suppression of the solar neutrino flux in the context of the recent SuperKamiokande data. From a global analysis of the rate and spectrum data,
Final results from the Palo Verde neutrino oscillation experiment
The νe flux and spectrum have been measured at a distance of about 800 m from the reactors of the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station using a segmented Gd-loaded liquid scintillator detector.
