What we can learn from atmospheric neutrinos

  title={What we can learn from atmospheric neutrinos},
Physics potential of future measurements of atmospheric neutrinos is explored. Observation of ∆m221 driven sub-dominant effects and θ13 driven large matter effects in atmospheric neutrinos can be used to study the deviation of θ23 from maximality and its octant. Neutrino mass hierarchy can be determined extremely well due to the large matter effects. New physics can be constrained both in standard atmospheric neutrino experiments as well as in future neutrino telescopes.
