Implications of Solar and Atmospheric Neutrinos

  title={Implications of Solar and Atmospheric Neutrinos},
  author={Paul Langacker},
The implications of the deficit of solar neutrinos are discussed. If all of the experiments are taken literally the relative suppressions render an astrophysical explanation unlikely. Allowing MSW conversions, the data simultaneously determine the temperature of the core of the sun to within five percent. The implications of the atmospheric νμ/νe ratio are briefly discussed. 1. Solar Neutrinos and Cool Sun Models The predictions of two recent theoretical studies are shown in Table 1. There is… CONTINUE READING
