Video/text Neutrinos
Description By Concepcion Gonzalez-Garcia, 2013. The neutrino, the lightest and most weakly interacting particle of the Standard Model has revealed itself as the messenger of very exciting news in particle physics: there is Physics Beyond the Standard Model. All this thanks to the quantum-mechanical phenomenon of flavour oscillations which is intrinsically connected to the question of neutrino mass and which has been observed in neutrinos produced in natural sources, like the Sun and the Earth's atmosphere, as well as with human made neutrino beams at accelerator and reactors. The purpose of these lectures is to overview some aspects of the phenomenology of massive neutrinos.

Video/text Neutrinos
Description By Antonio Ereditato, 2012. In this course, the basic features of neutrino physics are reviewed, pointing to the very special characteristics of this elusive particle and to the related open questions. Emphasis is given to the neutrino oscillation mechanism and to the state of the art of the experimental studies, mostly in relation to the many interesting results obtained in the last years. ...

Video/text Neutrino Physics: Dirac Neutrino Masses and Mixing
Description By Carlo Giunti, 2009. The general theory of neutrino masses and mixing is introduced. The theory of neutrino oscillations in vacuum and in matter is reviewed, with discussion of the most important general phenomenological aspects. Topics: Dirac Neutrino Masses, Majorana Neutrino Masses, Dirac-Majorana Mass, Neutrino Oscillations in Vacuum, and Neutrino Oscillations in Matter. ...

Video/text Neutrino physics: present and future
Description By Boris Kayser, 2006. Our understanding of neutrinos has been revolutionized by the discovery that they have nonzero masses and very large mixing. We will explain the phenomenology of massive neutrinos, including neutrino oscillation in vacuum and in matter, and the physics of neutrinos that are their own antiparticles. ...

Video/text Neutrinos
Description By Yosef Nir, 2004. Measurements of various features of the fluxes of atmospheric, solar and, more recently, reactor neutrinos have provided evidence for neutrino oscillations and therefore for neutrino masses and mixing. These results have significant theoretical implications: new physics exists, and its scale can be estimated. ...

Video/text Neutrino Masses and Oscillations
Description By A. de Rujula, 2002. This course will not cover its subject in the customary way. The emphasis will be on the simple theoretical concepts (helicity, handedness, chirality, Majorana masses) which are obscure in most of the literature, and on the quantum mechanics of oscillations, that ALL books get wrong. Which, hopefully, will not deter me from discussing some of the most interesting results from the labs and from the cosmos. ...

Video/text Neutrino Oscillations
Description By L. Camilleri, 2000. Several anomalies are observed in atmospheric and solar neutrino experiments as well as in LSND, an accelerator based neutrino experiment. These anomalies and their interpretation as the manifestation of neutrino oscillations will be discussed. ...

Video/text Neutrino masses: a theoretical introduction
Description By Guido Altarelli, 1999. Neutrino oscillations. Summary of the oscillation data. Limits on neutrino masses and number of flavours. Neutrinos as possible hot dark matter. Neutrino masses and lepton number violation. Majorana neutrinos. The see-saw mechanism Active and sterile neutrinos. Neutrino masses and Grand Unification. ...

Video/text Neutrino Physics
Description By L. Di Lella, 1997. Direct measurements of neutrino masses are practically hopeless (perhaps with the exception of the electron-neutrino) and the most promising way to obtain evidence for non-zero masses is to search for neutrino oscillations. These lectures review the theory of neutrino oscillations, the existing experimental hints for their occurrence and the present and future experiments on this subject. ...
