Fundamentals of Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics

Carlo Giunti and Chung W. Kim

Abstract

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 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 discussions, both experimental and theoretical, with relevant mathematical details, on neutrino oscillations, extra-terrestrial as well as terrestrial neutrinos and the relic neutrin ...

Keywords: particle physics, astrophysics, cosmology, neutrinos, neutrino oscillations, extra-terrestrial neutrinos, terrestrial neutrinos, relic neutrinos, field theory, gauge theory
