Item description for Neutrino Oscillations: Present Status and Future Plans by Jennifer A. Thomas & Patricia L Vahl...
This book reviews the status of a very exciting field -- neutrino oscillations -- at a very important time. The fact that neutrinos have mass has only been proved in the last few years and the acceptance of that fact has opened up a whole new area of study to understand the fundamental parameters of the mixing matrix.
The book summarizes the results from all the experiments which have played a role in the measurement of neutrino oscillations and briefly describes the scope of some new planned experiments. Contributions include a theoretical introduction by Stephen Parke from FNAL, as well as articles from all the major experimental groups who have been pivotal in uncovering the nature of the neutrino mass.
Contents: Neutrino Oscillation Phenomenology (S J Parke); The Super-Kamiokande Experiment (C W Walter); Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (S J M Peeters & J R Wilson); Neutrino Oscillation Physics with KamLAND: Reactor Antineutrinos and Beyond (K M Heeger); K2K: KEK to Kamioka Long-Baseline Neutrino Oscillation Experiment (R J Wilkes); MINOS (P Vahle); The LSND and KARMEN Neutrino Oscillation Experiments (W C Louis); MiniBooNE (S J Brice); The OPERA Experiment in the CNGS Beam (D Autiero et al.); The T2K Experiment (D L Wark); The NOvA Experiment (G J Feldman); Double Chooz (G A Horton-Smith & T Lasserre); Daya Bay: A Sensitive Determination of 13 with Reactor Antineutrinos (K B Luk & Y Wang).

Neutrino Oscillations: Present Status and Future Plans Jun 5, 2009
I thought this book was very, very good. I used it as a primary resource for preparation of a graduate level paper. It contains an up-to-date set of papers prepared by people directly involved in various neutrino experiments around the world. It deals with all the various types of neutrinos, including solar neutrinos, and atmospheric, reactor and beam-produced neutrinos. It characterizes all the big-name experiments, including SNO, Super-K, K2K, T2K, etc. The references in each paper lead you deeper into the subject. Anyone wanting a fuller understanding of neutrinos in all their variety would be well served to grab a copy of this book, and in the case of solar neutrinos at least, anything written by the late John Bahcall. Thanks
