  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.

  2. 2. A search for solar dark matter with the IceCube neutrino telescope

    Författare :Gustav Wikström; Klas Hultqvist; John Carr; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dark matter; neutrinos; neutrino telescopes; IceCube; Astroparticle physics; Astropartikelfysik; fysik; Physics;

    Sammanfattning : Dark matter particles in the form of supersymmetric Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) could accumulate in the centre of the Sun because of gravitational trapping. Pair-wise annihilations of WIMPs could create standard model particles out of which neutrinos could reach the Earth. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Searches for Dark Matter with IceCube and DeepCore : New constraints on theories predicting dark matter particles

    Författare :Matthias Danninger; Klas Hultqvist; Patrick Decowski; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dark matter; neutrinos; neutrino telescopes; IceCube; DeepCore; dark matter experiments; fysik; Physics;

    Sammanfattning : The cubic-kilometer sized IceCube neutrino observatory, constructed in the glacial ice at the South Pole, searches indirectly for dark matter via neutrinos from dark matter self-annihilations. It has a high discovery potential through striking signatures. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Studies of dark matter annihilation and production in the Universe

    Författare :Carl Niblaeus; Joakim Edsjö; Riccardo Catena; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; dark matter; neutrinos; astroparticle physics; indirect detection; teoretisk fysik; Theoretical Physics;

    Sammanfattning : In this PhD thesis we investigate various aspects of particle dark matter. The proper identification of dark matter developed during the second half of the twentieth century to become one of the biggest endeavours in modern physics and astronomy. LÄS MER

  5. 5. 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
