The early history of neutrino masses, mixing and oscillations is briefly reviewed. 
Current status of neutrino physics
A summary of the current status of neutrino oscillations is given. We also include a brief description of the earlier development of neutrino physics and illustrate the roles that neutrinos play inExpand
Neutrino oscillation and the Daya Bay theta(13) experiment
A brief summary of the current status of neutrino oscillations will be given. Then the on-going construction of the Daya Bay Reaction Neutrino Experiment near the Daya Bay nuclear power plant isExpand
Neutral current neutrino oscillation via quantum field theory approach
Neutrino and anti-neutrino states coming from the neutral current or Z0 decay are blind with respect to the flavor. The neutrino oscillation is observed and formulated when its flavor is known.Expand
Disentangling neutrino oscillations
The theory underlying neutrino oscillations has been described at length in the literature. The neutrino state produced by a weak decay is usually portrayed as a linear superposition of massExpand
R-parity preserving super-WIMP decays
We point out that when the decay of one electroweak scale super-WIMP state to another occurs at second order in a super-weak coupling constant, this can naturally lead to decay lifetimes that areExpand
Neutrino Oscillations
Neutrinos were first theorized to conserve energy in beta decay. Since the initial postulation of the neutrino, three flavors have been theorized and discovered. Projects designed to detect aExpand
Formal Developments for Lorentz-Violating Dirac Fermions and Neutrinos
The main finding is that the neutrino dispersion equation has the same structure in terms of Lorentz-violating operators as that of a modified single-fermion Dirac theory. Expand
A Combined Three-Phase Signal Extraction of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory Data Using Markov Chain Monte Carlo Technique
Neutrino physics has entered an era of precision, after proving that the Standard Solar Model is a viable theory and going beyond the current Standard Model of particle physics by proving thatExpand
Fermionic dark matter: from models to collider searches
In this thesis, we investigate from diverse point of views, the dark matter problem. First, we study the doublet-triplet fermion model, a simple extension of the Standard Model with an extra Z2Expand


Neutrino Oscillations and Stellar Collapse
It is shown that even if vacuum neutrino oscillations exist, they are effectively inhibited from occurring in collapsing stars because of the high matter density.
Quark-lepton analogy and neutrino oscillations
Abstract A theory of the weak interactions of leptons which is analogous to that of the weak interaction of the four quarks is considered. Mixing of neutrinos (with finite masses) is introduced andExpand
Lepton non-conservation and solar neutrinos
The consequences for experiments involving solar neutrinos of a small amount of lepton non-conservation are examined following the discussion of Gribov and Pontecorvo.
Neutrino Oscillations in Matter
The effect of coherent forward scattering must be taken into account when considering the oscillations of neutrinos traveling through matter. In particular, for the case of massless neutrinos forExpand
Parity Nonconservation and a Two Component Theory of the Neutrino
A two-component theory of the neutrino is discussed. The theory is possible only if parity is not conserved in interactions involving the neutrino. Various experimental implications are analyzed.Expand
Phenomenology of neutrino oscillations
Abstract This review is focused on neutrino mixing and neutrino oscillations in the light of the recent experimental developments. After discussing possible types of neutrino mixing for Dirac andExpand
Observation of High-Energy Neutrino Reactions and the Existence of Two Kinds of Neutrinos
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 beExpand
Vectorlike weak currents, massive neutrinos, and neutrino beam oscillations
Abstract If the weak currents are vectorlike, the neutrinos will not be massless, and there will exist weak mixing angles for leptons, analogous to the Cabibbo angle for hadrons. Neutrino beams willExpand
Neutrino astronomy and lepton charge
Abstract It is shown that lepton nonconservation might lead to a decrease in the number of detectable solar neutrinos at the earth surface, because of νe←νμ oscillations, similar to K o ← K oExpand
Experimental consequences of νe−νμ mixing in neutrino beams
Abstract The experimental consequences of neutrino mixing and decay are analyzed. Existing neutrino beam experiments are consistent with a finite but small mixing angle unless |mνμ2−mνe2| ⩽ (3.0Expand
