Neutrinos and Big Bang Nucleosynthesis

  title={Neutrinos and Big Bang Nucleosynthesis},
  author={Bang Nucleosynthesis and Gary Steigman},
The early universe provides a unique laboratory for probing the frontiers of particle physics in general and neutrino physics in particular. The primordial abundances of the relic nuclei produced during the first few minutes of the evolution of the Universe depend on the electron neutrinos through the chargedcurrent weak interactions among neutrons and protons (and electrons and positrons and neutrinos), and on all flavors of neutrinos through their contributions to the total energy density… CONTINUE READING
