NPAC (Nuclear/Particle/Astro/Cosmo) Forum
Neutrinos and the Future of the Standard Model
Date: Thursday, March 3rd
Time: 4:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Dan Dwyer, Caltech
Abstract: For over 30 years the Standard Model has served as our template for interpreting the world of particle physics. Recent results from neutrino experiments have shown that we must modify this long-standing theory. Current and future experiments will be discussed, with special attention on the KamLAND and Daya Bay neutrino oscillation experiments. The necessary changes for the Standard Model have consequences for the current set of fundamental particles, the nature of dark matter, and the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the universe.
