  • Author(s) Information

Undeniably, today Neutrino Physics has become an important and emerging new field of intense research in Physics around the globe. The accolades received by the Neutrino Physicists speak volume about it.

Besides, numerous other prizes, there have been four Nobel Prizes to its credit. The latest being the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics to Professor TakaakiKajita and Professor Arthur B. Mcdonald for discovery of neutrino oscillations. This important breakthrough discovery which was first declared by Super-KamioKande at the Takayama Conference-NEUTRINO’98, can be termed as the watershed moment in the history of neutrino physics. With this discovery the study of neutrino physics has established a firm foundation.

And matter-antimatter asymmetry of the universe is one of the open problems in cosmology. Thus, connecting a low-energy to a high-energy physics is an issue of both particle physicists and cosmologists.

Good number of books on neutrino physics have been written, but not on baryogenesis. And importantly, complete detailed books connecting these two beautiful subjects are yet to be written. The present book though not a complete detailed book is a modest attempt in that direction. The book attempts to find out the above unknown properties of neutrinos and study its implications to cosmology.
