Confronting The Solar Neutrino Problem And Other Hints Of Neutrino Mass

Andrew Hime (Los Alamos National Laboratory)


Over the past 30 years, our understanding of how the Sun shines has been
elucidated by detailed theoretical and experimental studies, including the
prediction and measurement of the solar neutrino spectrum. This research
has culminated into the modern ''Solar Neutrino Problem'', the solution to
which can have profound implications for our understanding of elementary
particle physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. This discussion focuses on
the status of the solar neutrino problem and the endeavours underway to
resolve the issue. In addition, the problem is put into further perspective
based upon other anomalies observed from neutrino sources both on the Earth
and in the Heavens.
