Neutrino Oscillations

Presented by Nishant Raina, UNM

The phenomenon of neutrino oscillations might be the most compelling evidence we have so far for physics beyond the standard model. In my talk, I will give an overview of vacuum oscillations and how one can understand the more complicated case of three-neutrino flavor oscillations in the two-neutrino flavor approximation, effects of matter on neutrino oscillations (MSW effect), and collective flavor oscillations in a dense neutrino gas.
