From the reaction pi /sup plus or minus / yields mu /sup plus or minus / + ( nu / nu /sup -/), it is dem onstrated that the neutrinos produce mu mesons but not electrons and are likely to be different from the neutrinos involved in beta decay. Approximate cross sections are determined. (L.N.N.)

Direct probes of neutrino mass
The discovery of neutrino oscillations has shown that neutrinos, in contradiction to a prediction of the minimal standard model, have mass. Oscillations do not yield a value for the mass, but do setExpand
Do neutrinos have mass
Limits on neutrino masses are discussed, both from kinematical considerations (3-body weak decays, etc.) and from dynamical neutrino mass effects (oscillations). The Dirac versus Majorana question isExpand
Search for the Neutrino Mass and Low Energy Neutrino Astronomy
The history of neutrinos is strongly coupled with the understanding of weak interactions, which in turn rules energy production in stars. Thus there is a important interplay of nuclear-, particle andExpand
