Can the Future of Neutrino Physics Compare with its Past?

  • Sheldon L. Glashow
Conference paper


I shall summarize the marvellous accomplishments in neutrino physics of the past decade, very briefly sketch our current understanding of these elusive particles and provide a personal list of the most important challenges that remain in this discipline, given in (my) order of priority. Because the following discussion is more provocative than novel, I must apologize in advance for the inevitable omissions, distortions, inequities and iniquities resulting from my ignorance or infirmitude, inattention or ineptitude and unintended arrogance.
