Low-Energy Neutrinos in Astrophysics

  • W. Hampel
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 12)

Abstract

In this review we shall concentrate on the two main aspects of low-energy (∿MeV) neutrino astrophysics. The larger part summarizes the current status of solar neutrino research, whereas in the last section the prospects for the detection of collapsing star neutrinos are discussed.
