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 in
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 is
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.
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 are
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 a
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 that
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 Z2


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.
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 for
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.
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 be
