SOME 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
- News 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
- A general audience colloquium about neutrino
mass and oscillations, in powerpoint format.
- ``Atmospheric 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.
- ``High 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.
- ``Atmospheric 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 2000).
- ``Neutrinos 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).
- ``Neutrinos have mass!'',
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.
- ``An 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
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. Hoffman, ed.
- ``Evidence for Oscillation of Atmospheric
Neutrinos'', The Super-Kamiokande
Collaboration, Y. Fukuda, et. al., Phys. Rev. Lett.
(1998), hep-ex/9807003. This is now the most quoted
experimental paper in the field.
- ``Detecting 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
Some notes of
possible interest, about neutrino oscillations, now rather
out-of-date (from mid-98):
