In his book, "The Neutrino Case", the author, Marcello Veneziano, presents a view of the inner working of our universe that is nothing short of revolutionary.

By placing the neutrino, the smallest particles of our universe, at center stage, the author presents a view of our universe using small black holes to create a new model of particle physics which should replace the existing standard model.5/5(3).

Isaac Asimov describes the discover of the Neutrino, a particle which, invented to make the bookkeeping come out, delightfully deigned to exist. The first half of this short book describes the /5.

The Neutrino: Ghost Particle of the Atom Mass Market Paperback – August 1, by Isaac Asimov (Author)/5(5). Neutrino is the biography of a sub-atomic particle that until recently, many people did not even think existed.

The author weaves a masterful tale of the science and history of the neutrino - from its race from the heart of the sun to its capture in the depths of an abandon mine/5(66). THE NEUTRINO EFFECT is an exciting, solid novel that promises an intriguing ongoing body of work from a major new talent in science fiction.

From the Author The Neutrino Effect is a refreshingly optimistic science fiction story, written in a fast-paced style with major emphasis on character and intrigue, and contains elements of love and suspense, all of which makes the novel perfect for fans of 4/5(6).

This is a semi-popular science book about the neutrino particle. Written by a distinguished theoretical physicist, it will appeal to any physics students or non-specialist physicists who wish to know more about the neutrino and its role in the evolution of our universe.

The first half of the book is dedicated to the philosophical foundations of science and why physicists were certain the neutrino existed decades before it was actually detected. What we get, then, is a careful description of the nature of scientific Laws of Nature and, in particular, of the nature and importance of conservation laws.

Neutrino Hunters is a wonderful read from start to finish.” ―Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award–winning author of Red Planet Blues “This is science from the front lines.

But it's not just science: Neutrino Hunters also illuminates the thinkers and tinkerers who have made the quest for the neutrino their life's work. We are lucky to have Jayawardhana--a first-rate storyteller who also knows the physics inside /5(39).

This book provides a comprehensive overview of neutrino physics today and explores promising new avenues of inquiry that could lead to future breakthroughs. The Physics of Neutrinos begins with a concise history of the field and a tutorial on the fundamental properties of neutrinos, and goes on to discuss how the three neutrino types interchange identities as they propagate from their Cited by:   A very clear and succinct book about this mysterious ghost particle.

It traces the roots of the Neutrino from its start as a supposedly un-discoverable "convenience" to the dawn of neutrino science, which is literally the forefront of particle physics and cosmology today. Along the way you meet the famous and unsung heroes of the Neutrino story/5.

A neutrino created with a specific flavor has an associated specific quantum superposition of all three mass states.

As a result, neutrinos oscillate between different flavors in flight. For example, an electron neutrino produced in a beta decay reaction may interact in a distant detector as a muon or tau ic charge: 0 e.

The Neutrino Hunters is comprehensive without being overburdened with detail or weighed down with too much theory, while the book's neat pen portraits of the men and women who tracked down the.

The physics of neutrinos — uncharged elementary particles that are key to helping us better understand the nature of our universe — is one of the most exciting frontiers of modern science.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of neutrino physics today and explores promising new avenues of inquiry that could lead to future breakthroughs.

The book starts by guiding the reader through aspects of fundamental neutrino physics, such as the standard cosmological model and the statistical mechanics in the expanding Universe, before discussing the history of neutrinos in chronological order from the very early stages until by: The Neutrino Hunters is Ray Jayawardhanas intriguing and informative concise history of both the highly elusive neutrino itself and of the peculiar, offbeat characters who made finding the least understood particle in physics their lifes work/5.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of neutrino physics today and explores promising new avenues of inquiry that could lead to future breakthroughs.

Enrico Fermi, the great Italian physicist, was immediately convinced. Building on the discussions held at the Solvay Conference on October (devoted to James Chadwick’s discovery of the neutron), he proposed the theory of beta decay based on a hypothesis that an electron-neutrino pair is spontaneously produced by a nucleus in the same way that photons can spontaneously be emitted by.

In his usual thorough, graceful, magisterial manner Isaac Asimov describes the discover of the Neutrino, a particle which, invented to make the bookkeeping come out, delightfully deigned to exist.4/5(1). In his new book, "The Telescope in the Ice: Inventing a New Astronomy at the South Pole," writer Mark Bowen chronicles the decadeslong project to build the IceCube Neutrino Observatory.

nothing but the neutrino mass. Therefore the neutrino mass plays a very unique role. It is the lowest-order effect of physics at short distances. This is an extremely small effect. Any kinematical effects of the neutrino mass are suppressed by (mν/Eν)2, and for mν ∼ 1 eV (which we now knowCited by: Neutrino, elementary subatomic particle with no electric charge, very little mass, and 12 unit of spin.
