Testing Lorentz and CPT Invariance with Neutrinos
The generic experimental signatures of the breakdown of these fundamental symmetries in the neutrino sector are presented.
Neutrinos as Probes of Lorentz Invariance
Neutrinos can be used to search for deviations from exact Lorentz invariance. The worldwide experimental program in neutrino physics makes these particles a remarkable tool to search for a variety of
Astrophysical Neutrinos in Testing Lorentz Symmetry
An overview of searches related to neutrinos of astronomical and astrophysical origin performed within the framework of the Standard-Model Extension is provided. For this effective field theory, key
Tests of Lorentz and CPT invariance with neutrinos and photons
Lorentz symmetry is a cornerstone of modern physics. As the spacetime symmetry of special relativity, Lorentz invariance is a basic component of the standard model of particle physics and general
Calculation of the Decay Rate of Tachyonic Neutrinos against Charged-Lepton-Pair and Neutrino-Pair Cerenkov Radiation
We consider in detail the calculation of the decay rate of high-energy superluminal neutrinos against (charged) lepton pair Cerenkov radiation (LPCR), and neutrino pair Cerenkov radiation (NPCR),
Faster-than-light speeds, tachyons, and the possibility of tachyonic neutrinos
Faster-than-light speeds and hypothetical FTL particles known as tachyons are exciting subjects for students, given their speculative and controversial nature. This article presents an overview of
Neutrino helicity reversal and fundamental symmetries
A rather elusive helicity reversal occurs in a gedanken experiment in which a massive left-handed Dirac neutrino, traveling at a velocity u < c, is overtaken on a highway by a speeding vehicle
The 2d Gross-Neveu Model for Pseudovector Fermions and Tachyonic Mass Generation
Recent observations in the OPERA experiment suggest that the neutrino could propagate with speed that is superluminal. Based on early theoretical work on tachyonic fermions we shall study a


Taken at face value, experimental central values of the masses of the electron and muon neutrinos suggest that they are faster-than-light particles. We summarize the current experimental situation
New precision determination of the pi - mass from pionic x-rays.
The wavelength of the pionic 4f-3d transition in /sup 24/Mg has been measured with a curved-crystal spectrometer. The new value of the pion-electron mass ratio is deduced to be m-/m- = 273.126
Limit on nu -bare mass from observation of the beta decay of molecular tritium.
The most sensitive direct upper limit set on the mass {ital m}{sub {nu}} of the electron antineutrino is reported, in clear disagreement with a reported value of 26(5) eV.
