  journal={Reviews of Modern Physics},
Measurements of various features of the fluxes of atmospheric and solar neutrinos have provided evidence for neutrino oscillations and therefore for neutrino masses and mixing. We review the phenomenology of neutrino oscillations in vacuum and in matter. We present the existing evidence from solar and atmospheric neutrinos as well as the results from laboratory searches, including the final status of the LSND experiment. We describe the theoretical inputs that are used to interpret the… 

Theoretical and Phenomenological Status of Neutrino Physics: A Brief Review

We present an overview of recent progress in the theoretical and phenomenological studies of neutrino masses, lepton avor mixing, and CP violation. Firstly, We discuss the status of neutrino mass

Theoretical prospects of neutrinoless double beta decay

The compelling experimental evidences for oscillations of solar and atmospheric neutrinos imply the existence of 3-neutrino mixing in vacuum. We briefly review the phenomenology of 3-ν mixing, and

Status of global fits to neutrino oscillations

We review the present status of global analyses of neutrino oscillations, taking into account the most recent neutrino data including the latest KamLAND and K2K updates presented at Neutrino 2004, as

Atmospheric Neutrino Oscillations and New Physics

We study the robustness of the determination of the neutrino masses and mixing from the analysis of atmospheric and K2K data under the presence of different forms of phenomenologically allowed new

Neutrinos: Summarizing the State-of-the-Art

I review oscillation solutions to the neutrino anomalies and discuss how to account for the required pattern of neutrino masses and mixings from first principles. Unification and low-energy bottom-up

Neutrino masses, mixing and oscillations

Neutrino mixing and the basics of neutrino oscillations in a vacuum are considered. Recent evidence in favor of neutrino oscillations, obtained in solar and atmospheric neutrino experiments, are



Update on Atmospheric Neutrinos

MC is obtained by folding a prediction for the atmospheric neutrino flux with the properties of every individual detector through a Monte Carlo ~MC! procedure. Apart from studying the impact of the

Majorana neutrinos, neutrino mass spectrum, CP violation and neutrinoless double beta decay. 1. The Three neutrino mixing case

Assuming three-neutrino mixing and massive Majorana neutrinos, we study the implications of the neutrino oscillation solutions of the solar and atmospheric neutrino problems and of the results of the

Solutions to the solar neutrino anomaly

We present an updated analysis of astrophysical solutions, two-flavor MSW solutions, and vacuum oscillation solutions to the solar neutrino anomaly. The recent results of each of the five solar

Comprehensive analysis of solar, atmospheric, accelerator, and reactor neutrino experiments in a hierarchical three-generation scheme.

Solutions and combined bounds in the parameter space of the neutrino masses and mixing angles are found, which are compatible with the whole set of experimental data and with the hierarchical assumption.

Global three-neutrino oscillation analysis of neutrino data

A global analysis of the solar, atmospheric and reactor neutrino data is presented in terms of three-neutrino oscillations. We include the most recent solar neutrino rates of Homestake, SAGE, GALLEX

Reactor based neutrino oscillation experiments

The status of neutrino oscillation searches employing nuclear reactors as sources is reviewed. This technique, a direct continuation of the experiments that proved the existence of neutrinos, is
