Neutrinos, neutrinos everywhere!

Neutrinos are in the news (see this article about UW's IceCube here in Science Magazine).  We thought we'd pull together a couple of our newer neutrino books and post them here over the next few days, just in time for Thanksgiving and that ride on the bus home.

  Darkmatter, Neutrinos, and Our Solar System
 By Nirmala Prahash.  World Scientific, 2013.
This book describes issues of dark matter, neutrinos, and the solar system in terms of links between cosmology, particle and nuclear physics, as well as between cosmology, atmospheric and terrestrial physics. It studies the constituents of dark matter first in terms of their individual structure and second, in terms of facilities available to detect these structures.

Neutrino Cosmology
By Julien Lesgourgues.  Cambridge University Press, 2013.

The role that neutrinos have played in the evolution of the Universe is the focus of one of the most fascinating research areas that has stemmed from the interplay between cosmology, astrophysics and particle physics. In this self-contained book, the authors bring together all aspects of the role of neutrinos in cosmology, spanning from leptogenesis to primordial nucleosynthesis, their role in CMB and structure formation, to the problem of their direct detection. 

Neutrino Physics 
By Kai Zuber.  CRC Press, 2012.
When Kai Zuber’s pioneering text on neutrinos was published in 2003, the author correctly predicted that the field would see tremendous growth in the immediate future. Revised as needed to be equal to the research of today, Neutrino Physics, Second Edition delves into neutrino cross sections, mass measurements, double beta decay, solar neutrinos, neutrinos from supernovae, and high energy neutrinos, as well as new experimental results in the context of theoretical models
