RECENT PAPERS TALKS AND MONOGRAPHS: (not updated in some years)
- Introduction to the Hanohano Project,
presented at the XII Venice Neutrino Telescopes Workshop, Feb. 2007
in Neutrino Astronomy, plenary talk at 27th International
Cosmic Ray Conference, Hamburg Germany, 14 August 2001. This is best
viewed with Internet Explorer (thanks to Bill Gates). You can also find
the powerpoint file in this same directory, which is prettier. Individual
jpeg files are in http://www.phys.hawaii.edu/~jgl/forum/icrc-hamburg/
A postscript version of the actual lecture can be found at http://www.phys.hawaii.edu/~jgl/post/hamburg.ps
general audience colloquium about neutrino mass and oscillations,
in powerpoint format.
Neutrino Oscillations'', an article detailing the evidence for
muon neutrino oscillations in the atmospheric muon neutrino data, and
including discussion of implications and future experimental directions,
John~G.~Learned, Chapter in ``Current Aspects of Neutrino Physics'',
David O. Caldwell, ed., Springer-Verlag (2001); draft at hep-ex/0007056.
Energy Neutrino Astrophysics'', John G. Learned and Karl
Mannheim, Ann. Rev. of Nuc. and Part. Science, 50, 679-749
(2000). The version here was the nearly final draft of a general review of
potential neutrino astronomy sources and detection techniques.
Neutrinos'' , an update on the atmospheric neutrino
oscillations results from SuperK, ``Proced. of the NNN99 meeting in Stony
Brook, 9/23-26/99'', ed. M. Diwan, APS Conf. Proced. 533 (AIP, NY
Have Mass!'' a six page non-technical article about the present
state of research on neutrino mass and its place in the universe,
coauthored with Vernon Barger of U. Wis. (6/99).
have mass!'', J.~G.~Learned, SLAC Beam Line 29 (1999) No. 3,
8-15. This is a Sci. Am. level summary of the state of the field, in a
somewhat large .pdf file.
Introduction to Neutrino Astronomy'', a five page non-technical
description of the motivation for undertaking neutrino astronomy, and the
present state of attempts to open a new window on the universe (5/99).
- ``The Neutrino
Eye: A Megaton Low Energy Neutrino and Nucleon Decay Detector'',
published in the Proceedings of the International Workshop on Simulation
and Analysis Methods for Large Neutrino Detectors, DESY Zeuthen, Germany,
July 6-9, 1998, C. Spiering, ed.
Number Violation'', published in the Proceedings of the Fifth
International WEIN Symposium, June 14-19, 1998, Santa Fe, New Mexico, C.
for Oscillation of Atmospheric Neutrinos'', The
Super-Kamiokande Collaboration, Y. Fukuda, et. al., Phys. Rev. Lett.
81, 1562 (1998), hep-ex/9807003. This is now the most quoted
experimental paper in the field.
Tau Neutrino Oscillations at PeV Energies'', John~G.~Learned
and Sandip~Pakvasa, preprint UH-511-799-94, Astroparticle Physics J.,
3, 267 (1995). This widely quoted paper proposes the Double Bang
signature for high energy tau neutrino detection.
Some notes of possible interest,
about neutrino oscillations, now rather out-of-date (from mid-98):
