Neutrino Physics – Theory

  • Walter Grimus
Chapter
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 629)

Abstract

We discuss recent developments in neutrino physics and focus, in particular, on neutrino oscillations and matter effects of three light active neutrinos. Moreover, we discuss the difference between Dirac and Majorana neutrinos, neutrinoless ββ-decay, absolute neutrino masses and electromagnetic moments. Basic mechanisms and a few models for neutrino masses and mixing are also presented.

Keywords
