  1. 1. Theoretical and Phenomenological Studies of Neutrino Physics

    Författare :Mattias Blennow; Tommy Ohlsson; Eligio Lisi; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; neutrino mass; neutrino mixing; neutrino oscillations; matter effects; non-standard effects; the day-night effect; solar neutrinos; accelerator neutrinos; exact solutions; three-flavor effects; large density; neutrino decay; neutrino decoherence; neutrino absorption; non-standard neutrino interactions; seesaw mechanism; stability criteria; leptogenesis; Physics; Fysik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is devoted to the theory and phenomenology of neutrino physics. While the standard model of particle physics has been extremely successful, it fails to account for massive neutrinos, which are necessary to describe the observations of neutrino oscillations made by several different experiments.

    Sammanfattning : The standard model of particle physics can excellently describe the vast majorityof data of particle physics experiments. However, in its simplest form, it cannot account for the fact that the neutrinos are massive particles and lepton flavorsmixed, as required by the observation of neutrino oscillations. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Aspects of Dimensional Deconstruction and Neutrino Physics

    Författare :Tomas Hällgren; Tommy Ohlsson; Stephan J. Hubber; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Dimensional deconstruction; higher-dimensional gauge theories; discretized gravity; neutrino mass; neutrino mixing; neutrino oscillations; Engineering physics; Teknisk fysik;

    Sammanfattning : The existence of at or curved extra spatial dimensions provides new insights into several of the problems which face the Standard Model of particle physics, including the gauge hierarchy problem, the smallness of neutrino masses, and the dark matter problem. However, higher-dimensional gauge theories are not renormalizable and can only be considered as low-energy effective theories, with limited applicability. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Matter and damping effects in neutrino mixing and oscillations

    Författare :Mattias Blennow; Tommy Ohlsson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Engineering physics; Neutrino oscillations; neutrino mixing; matter effects; damping effects; the day-night effect; solar neutrinos; Teknisk fysik; Engineering physics; Teknisk fysik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is devoted to the study of neutrino physics in general and the study of neutrino mixing and oscillations in particular. In the standard model of particle physics, neutrinos are massless, and as a result, they do not mix or oscillate. LÄS MER

  5. 5. A search for solar dark matter with the IceCube neutrino detector : Advances in data treatment and analysis technique

    Författare :Marcel Christian Robert Zoll; Christian Walck; Juan Jose Henrandez Rey; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; neutrino; WIMP; dark matter; cluster analysis; sun; IceCube; IC86; Physics; fysik;

    Sammanfattning : There is compelling observational evidence for the existence of dark matter in the Universe, including our own Galaxy, which could possibly consist of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) not contained in the standard model (SM) of particle physics. WIMPs may get gravitationally trapped inside heavy celestial bodies of ordinary matter. LÄS MER
