    Neutrino Physics

    Full text link
    This is the writeup of the lectures on neutrino physics delivered at various schools: TASI and Trieste in 2013 and the CERN-Latin American School in 2015. The topics discussed in this lecture include: general properties of neutrinos in the SM, the theory of neutrino masses and mixings (Dirac and Majorana), neutrino oscillations both in vacuum and in matter, as well as an overview of the experimental evidence for neutrino masses and of the prospects in neutrino oscillation physics. We also briefly review the relevance of neutrinos in leptogenesis and in beyond-the-Standard-Model physics.Comment: 58 pages, contribution to the CERN in the Proceedings of the 2015 CERN-Latin-American School of High-Energy Physics, Ibarra, Ecuador, 4 - 17 March 2015. arXiv admin note: text overlap with arXiv:1010.413

    I review our method to formulate chiral gauge theories on the lattice based on a two-cutoff lattice regularization, and discuss recent numerical results in a chiral U(1) gauge theory in 2D.Comment: Based on invited talk at AIJIC 97 on Recent Developments in Non-Perturbative Methods, Seoul, Korea. 20 page

    Simple model for the phase coexistence and electrical conductivity of alkali fluids

    Get PDF
    We report the first theoretical model for the alkali fluids which yields a liquid-vapor phase coexistence with the experimentally observed features and electrical conductivity estimates which are also in accord with observations. We have carried out a Monte Carlo simulation for a lattice gas model which allows an integrated study of the structural, thermodynamic, and electronic properties of metal-atom fluids. Although such a technique is applicable to both metallic and nonmetallic fluids, non-additive interactions due to valence electron delocalization are a crucial feature of the present model.Comment: RevTex, 11 pages, 2 ps figure files appended, submitted to PR

    Study of theoretical models for the liquid-vapor and metal-nonmetal transitions of alkali fluids

    Get PDF
    Theoretical models for the liquid-vapor and metal-nonmetal transitions of alkali fluids are investigated. Mean-field models are considered first but shown to be inadequate. An alternate approach is then studied in which each statistical configuration of the material is treated as inhomogeneous, with the energy of each ion being determined by its local environment. Nonadditive interactions, due to valence electron delocalization, are a crucial feature of the model. This alternate approach is implemented within a lattice-gas approximation which takes into account the observed mode of expansion in the materials of interest and which is able to treat the equilibrium density fluctuations. We have carried out grand canonical Monte Carlo simulations, for this model, which allow a unified, self-consistent, study of the structural, thermodynamic, and electronic properties of alkali fluids. Applications to Cs, Rb, K, and Na yield results in good agreement with observations.Comment: 13 pages, REVTEX, 10 ps figures available by e-mail

    Zero sound density oscillations in Fermi-Bose mixtures

    Full text link
    Within a mean field plus Random-Phase Approximation formalism, we investigate the collective excitations of a three component Fermi-Bose mixture of K atoms, magnetically trapped and subjected to repulsive s-wave interactions. We analyze both the single-particle excitation and the density oscillation spectra created by external multipolar fields, for varying fermion concentrations. The formalism and the numerical output are consistent with the Generalized Kohn Theorem for the whole multispecies system. The calculations give rise to fragmented density excitation spectra of the fermion sample and illustrate the role of the mutual interaction in the observed deviations of the bosonic spectra with respect to Stringari's rule.Comment: 9 pages, 6 eps figures, submitted to Phys.Rev.
