- Faculty Instructors: Ben Grinstein, Frank Wuerthwein
- Lectures at Mo/We 12:30-1:50pm in Mayer Hall Addition 5623
- Textbook Halzen & Martin
- Optional for experimentalists: Kleinknecht on particle detectors.
- In addition, we recommend that you obtain a copy of the Review of Particle Physics. This includes a comprehensive compilation of data on particle physics as well as short review articles and miscellaneous other useful stuff. The Review of Particle Physics is published every two years (on even years). It can be obtained for free from the Particle Data Group (PDG). While you wait for the PDG to send your very own copy, you may also find the content online from the PDG website.

- Given that I am way too short on neutrino physics, I have added here a number of additional references worth looking at:
- NeutrinoPhysics-0506165v1.pdf: Boris Kayser lectures that I base my lecture on
- numass.pdf: Well written and accessible introduction to neutrino mass, mixing, and flavor change by Boris Kayser . There is a lot of overlap between this and the previous reference.
- rpp2014-rev-neutrino-mixing.pdf: Review of Particle Properties 2014 Section on neutrino physics. This has the state of the art as of 2014.
- bkayser.pdf: Ancient paper on the quantum mechanics of neutrino mixing by Boris Kayser. This is probably a bit esotheric but may be useful for the homework.
- Then I found online 3 lectures by Steve Boyd that are worth looking at, mostly because they include pictures of the experiments etc.
- lec_neutrinosources.pdf: Lecture on sources of neutrinos. Flip to back to see explanations of how neutrino beams are made.
- lec_neutrinomass_writeup.pdf: lecture on neutrino mass
- lec_oscillations.pdf: lecture on neutrino oscillations

- And here is a review of the various ways for measuring the neutrino mass:
- mertens-1307.0101v1.pdf: Paper on neutrino mass measurements from beta decay
