Neutrino Masses and Mixings: An Experimental Review

  • Michael Shaevitz
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 128)

Abstract

Over the past two decades, the neutrino has been used as a unique probe of the weak interaction. Since the postulation of the neutrino by Pauli, the question of whether the neutrino is massless or not has been asked and many experimental investigations of weak decay or scattering processes have sought to answer this question. In these lectures, we will review some of these experiments and give the status of our present knowledge.
