Synopsis

This reference book surveys the latest developments in neutrino research, a field that has recently been at the forefront of particle physics research. The 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics recognized the discovery of neutrino oscillations, showing that neutrinos have mass, a monumental discovery that took physics beyond the standard model for elementary particles. Previously, the 2002 Nobel Prize in Physics had recognized the detection of cosmic neutrinos, which ushered in the era of neutrino astronomy. Through introductions to neutrino experiments that explore the world of elementary particles and neutrino observations that explore outer space, the book covers the frontlines of neutrino research. By reading the volume in sequence, even first-time students can become familiar with neutrino measurement technology and the latest studies.
