Title: Neutrino physics: the roadmap for precision physics
Author: Peres, O. L. G.
Abstract: In the last years, we experienced a complete change of the view of weak interaction physics. Robust results from many experiments as Super-Kamiokande, KamLAND, SNO, K2K, show us that the neutrinos have the remarkable phenomena of oscillations, a quantum interference mechanism that operates to distances as large as 100 km and even bigger distances. From this we know that neutrinos change identity from one flavor to another, as was demonstrated by the joints results of SNO and Super-Kamiokande experiments. We show here the review of latest results of neutrino physics, as for example, the first evidence of neutrinos produced in the core of the earth and the updated results of KamLAND and others. Our understating of all experimental results will completed by the state-of-art of the theoretical effort to understand such phenomena. For the near future, we expect the new generation of precision physics, like the running experiments of MINOS and Double CHOOZ, and the proposals of SADO and ANGRA shed light on unresolved issues such as the CP-violation for neutrinos and the relative magnitude of solar and atmospheric scales.
