Physics Seminar: Brave nu World

Date: Wednesday, September 10, 2014 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: PAD 142

Talk: "Brave nu World"

Speaker: Dr. André de Gouvêa, Department of Physics, Northwestern University.

Room: PAD 142

Abstract:

No area of particle physics research has changed more dramatically or rapidly over the past two decades than our understanding of neutrino properties and interactions. In this talk I discuss the current status of neutrino physics. I introduce the neutrino mass puzzle, what it implies for our understanding of particle physics, and how we plan to piece everything together - if we get lucky! - with a little help from muon physics, cosmology, the LHC, and others.
