"Long baseline neutrino oscillation experiments: why and how"
The evidence for neutrino oscillations from the SuperKamiokande experiment still leaves several open questions. The present program of long baseline neutrino oscillation experiments will address these issues. The ongoing K2K experiment and the future JHF facility in Japan, the programs in preparation in the United States (MINOS) and in Europe (CNGS) will be reviewed. MINOS (Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search) will be operating at the beginning of 2005 over a baseline of 735 km from FERMILAB (Illinois) to Soudan (Minnesota). Status and goals of the MINOS experiment will be reported in detail.
