SOLAR NEUTRINOS (with a tribute to John N. Bahcall)

By G. L. Fogli, E. Lisi, A. Marrone and A. Palazzo

Abstract

John N. Bahcall championed solar neutrino physics for many years. Thanks to his pioneering and long-lasting contributions, this field of research has not only reached maturity, but has also opened a new window on physics beyond the standard electroweak model through the phenomenon of neutrino flavor oscillations. We briefly outline some recent accomplishments in the field, and also discuss a couple of issues that do not seem to fit in the “standard picture, ” namely, the chemical controversy at the solar surface, and possible implications of recent gallium radioactive source experiments. Figure 1: John N. Bahcall explains “Why the Sun shines ” in his Lectio Magistralis, before receivin
