Neutrino Astrophysics

  title={Neutrino Astrophysics},
  author={Esteban Roulet},
A general overview of neutrino physics and astrophysics is given, starting with a historical account of the development of our understanding of neutrinos and how they helped to unravel the structure of the Standard Model. We discuss why it is so important to establish if neutrinos are massive and introduce the main scenarios to provide them a mass. The present bounds and the positive indications in favor of non-zero neutrino masses are discussed, including the recent results on atmospheric and… 

2004 TASI Lectures on Neutrino Physics

I discuss, in a semi-pedagogical way, our current understanding of neutrino physics. I present a brief history of how the neutrino came to be ``invented'' and observed, and discuss the evidence that

TASI 2002 lectures on neutrinos

We present a pedagogical review of neutrino physics. In the first lecture we describe the theoretical motivation for neutrino masses, and explain how neutrino flavor oscillation experiments can probe

Solar, Supernova and Atmospheric Neutrinos

In these Canberra summer school lectures we treat a number of topical issues in neutrino astrophysics: the solar neutrino problem, including the physics of the standard solar model, helioseismology,

Neutrino Oscillations and Neutrino Mass

In the Standard Model of particle physics neutrinos are massless. However, in 1998 it was shown beyond doubt that neutrinos possess a non-vanishing rest mass. Neutrinos can transform from one flavour

Neutrino Oscillations

Observation of Atmospheric Neutrinos

In 1998, the Super-Kamiokande discovered neutrino oscillation using atmospheric neutrino anomalies. It was the first direct evidence of neutrino mass and the first phenomenon to be discovered beyond

Neutrino Masses and Mixings: Status and Prospects

Neutrino oscillations have been found in experiments observing solar and atmospheric neutrinos. They were confirmed by experiments using neutrinos produced by reactors and accelerators. These

Solar neutrino physics

As a free, intensive, rarely interactive and well directional messenger, solar neutrinos have been driving both solar physics and neutrino physics developments for more than half a century. Since
