"Current Results in Neutrino Physics"
ABSTRACT:
Despite decades of research, neutrinos are still one of the least understood fundamental particles. Despite a world-wide experimental effort over the past 20 years that has started to reveal the neutrino's secrets, there is much more to be learned. One of the hopes is that a detailed study of neutrino properties will help us understand the observed asymmetry between matter and antimatter in the universe. It is also becoming clear that neutrinos play a key role in a variety of astrophysical phenomena, such as supernova explosions. I will review what is currently known about neutrinos as well as near and longer term experimental efforts.
