Overview Talk Nuclear Structure and Astrophysics Tuesday Morning


Dr Joseph Carlson (LANL)


Many important large-scale experiments are now operating to uncover fundamental properties of neutrinos including the mass hierarchy, mixing angles, CP violation and the Majorana nature of the neutrino. These very different experiments probe different regimes of energy and momenta, but all should be described by a realistic picture of nuclear interactions and currents. I will describe recent developments in our understanding of beta decay at very low momentum transfer, quasi-elastic neutrino scattering at much higher energy and momentum transfer. Finally I will describe how the effects discovered in beta decay and accelerator neutrinos may impact double beta decay matrix elements and astrophysical neutrinos.
