What are neutrinos? Why does nature need them? What use are they? Neutrinos are perhaps the most enigmatic particles in the universe. Formed in certain radioactive decays, they pass through most matter with ease. These tiny, ghostly particles are formed in millions in the Sun and pass through us constantly. For a long time they were thought to be massless, and passing as they do like ghosts they were not regarded as significant. Now we know they have a very small mass, and there are strong indications that they are very important indeed. It is speculated that a heavy form of neutrino, that is both matter and antimatter, may have shaped the balance of matter and antimatter in the early universe. Here, Frank Close gives an account of the discovery of neutrinos and our growing understanding of their significance, also touching on some speculative ideas concerning the possible uses of neutrinos and their role in the early universe.

This book deals with neutrino physics and astrophysics - a field in which some of the most exciting recent developments in particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology took place. The book is the most up-to-date, comprehensive and self-contained treatment of key issues in neutrino physics. It discusses all the topics vital to the understanding of the nature of neutrinos such as what they are, how to describe them, how they behave in nature, and the roles that neutrinos play in shaping our Universe. The book provides comprehensive discussions, both experimental and theoretical, with relevant mathematical details, on neutrino oscillations, extra-terrestrial as well as terrestrial neutrinos and the relic neutrinos. It also discusses many implications of current experimental data on reactor, accelerator, atmospheric, solar and supernova neutrinos with future perspectives. The book starts with an introduction to field theory and gauge theory which is accessible even to advanced undergraduate students, with helpful appendices, and it also provides pedagogical but sufficiently detailed reviews of supernova physics and cosmology, in particular the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation. It aims to provide all the technical details necessary for the professionals in the field and to be an almost exhaustive reference for neutrino physicists with over 1000 references.

Neutrinos play a decisive part in nuclear and elementary particle physics, as well as in astrophysics and cosmology. Because they interact so weakly with matter, some of their basic properties, such as mass charge conjugation symmetry, are largely unknown. These subjects are considered in detail by authors, who also discuss such topics as neutrino mixing, neutrino decay, neutrino oscillations, double beta decay and related ideas. Physical concepts are stressed, and both theoretical methods and experimental techniques are presented. This second edition contains an expanded coverage of new experimental results and recent theoretical advances. In the intervening years since the first edition, many then unresolved problems such as tritium beta decay and reactor neutrino oscillations have been clarified. This edition also gives expanded coverage of solar and supernova neutrinos.
