Title: KamLAND data and the solution to the solar neutrino problem
Author: Holanda, P. C. de
Smirnov, A. Yu.
Abstract: The first KamLAND results are in a very good agreement with the predictions made on the basis of the solar neutrino data and the LMA realization of the MSW mechanism. We perform a combined analysis of the KamLAND (rate, spectrum) and the solar neutrino data with a free boron neutrino flux fB. The best fit values of neutrino parameters are deltam² = 7.1.10-5 eV², tan² theta = 0.40 and fB = 1.04 with the 1sigma intervals: deltam² = (6.4 - 8.4). 10-5 eV², tan² theta = 0.33 - 0.48. We find the 3sigma upper bounds: deltam² < 1.7 . 10-4 eV² and tan² theta< 0.64, and the lower bound deltam² > 4.8 . 10-5 eV². In the best fit point we predict for SNO: CC/NC = <IMG SRC=/img/revistas/bjp/v34n4a/a19img01.gif>and <IMG SRC=/img/revistas/bjp/v34n4a/a19img02.gif > or =3.0 &plusmn; 0.8% (68% C.L.), and <IMG SRC=/img/revistas/bjp/v34n4a/a19img02.gif>< 6% at the 3sigma level. Further improvements in the determination of the oscillation parameters are discussed and implications of the solar neutrino and KamLAND results are considered.
