Though the neutrino was first postulated in the 1930s and detected in 1956, neutrino physics remains one of the most exciting fields of physics. Their position at the intersection of particle physics, astrophysics and nuclear physics ensures continuing interest in the subject. Despite the fact that neutrinos are one of the most fundamental particles which make up the universe, they are also one of the least understood. Vast theoretical and experimental research efforts and detectors such as Super-Kamiokande, CERN, Sudbury and the new Boulby Mine installation in the UK continue to enhance our understanding of the origins and properties of neutrinos, and their implication on the standard model and cosmology.

"Neutrino Physics" provides a comprehensive overview of the subject at a level suitable for graduate students in physics or astrophysics, Starting with a brief historical overview the author proceeds to review their fundamental properties, the neutrino mass question, and their place within and beyond the standard model. Atmospheric neutrinos, solar neutrinos and supernova neutrinos are discussed in separate chapters. The final chapters examine the role of neutrinos in modern astroparticle physics, cosmology and the dark matter problem. Concluding with a summary of the status of neutrino physics and the implications of results, this book is a review of the field.

Written to be accessible to readers from different backgrounds in nuclear, particle and astrophysics and with a detailed reference list, this title should be of interest to any researcher or advanced student who need to understand neutrino physics.
