  title={Phenomenology with Massive Neutrinos},
  author={Maria Concepcion Gonzalez-Garcia and Michele Maltoni},
  journal={Physics Reports},
The current status and some perspectives of the phenomenology of massive neutrinos is reviewed. We start with the phenomenology of neutrino oscillations in vacuum and in matter. We summarize the results of neutrino experiments using solar, atmospheric, reactor and accelerator neutrino beams. We update the leptonic parameters derived from the three-neutrino oscillation interpretation of this data. We describe the method and present results on our understanding of the solar and atmospheric… Expand
Phenomenology of Neutrino Oscillations
So far a number of different neutrino experiments have convincingly observed the phenomena of neutrino oscillations, indicating that neutrinos have rest masses and lepton flavors are mixed. This isExpand
Lectures on neutrino phenomenology
The fundamental properties of the lepton sector include the neutrino masses and flavor mixings. Both are difficult to observe because of the extremely small neutrino masses and neutrino-matter crossExpand
Neutrino-2008: Where are we? Where are we going?
Our present knowledge of neutrinos can be summarized in terms of the 'standard neutrino scenario'. Phenomenology of this scenario as well as attempts to uncover physics behind neutrino mass andExpand
Sterile Neutrinos in Light of Recent Cosmological and Oscillation Data: A Multi-Flavor Scheme Approach
Light sterile neutrinos might mix with the active ones and be copiously produced in the early Universe. In the present paper, a detailed multi-flavor analysis of sterile neutrino production isExpand
