A guide to the very fascinating interplay between astrophysics and particle physics that highlights the discovery of neutrino oscillations

Penned by three international experts on the topic, Solar Neutrino Physics (PDF) provides a review of the status of solar physics with its strong link to neutrino physics. The ebook looks into constitutive physics and the governing equations of standard solar models. The authors also review the theory of neutrinos in the Standard Model and the related detector experiments. The ebook includes a summary of the results from various experiments and develops a rational view of the current state-of-the-art of solar neutrino physics.

Solar Neutrino Physics: The Interplay between Particle Physics and Astronomy shows how solar models can be calibrated with the observational constraints of the age, radius, mass, and luminosity of the sun. The authors show the general evolutionary properties of the sun as a star, past, and future. They also discuss the solar neutrino production via the pp-chains and CNO-cycle, including the significant role of the chemical composition of the sun. A very important source of information about the solar interior is provided by helioseismology, the study of solar oscillations. This important ebook:

  • Presents a high-level overview of the field of solar neutrino physics
  • Combines the theory of nuclear reactions with solar neutrino experiments
  • Contains a review of SNO+, JUNO, LENA, Hyper-Kamiokande, and DUNE.
  • Brings together data and their interpretation of results obtained at various solar neutrino observatories

Written for physicists, astronomers, and high energy physicists, Solar Neutrino Physics contains a review of the field of neutrino physics, the relevant equations, and the influence of matter on the behavior of neutrino oscillations.

NOTE: The product only Includes the ebook, Solar Neutrino Physics in PDF. No access codes are included.
