Oscillating Neutrinos

Neutrinos have been assumed to have no mass. It was predicted that, if they have masses, they could change their type while they propagate. This phenomena is called neutrino oscillations. Neutrino oscillations was discovered by deep underground neutrino experiments. I will describe the discovery of neutrino oscillations and the implications of the small neutrino masses. The status and the future neutrino oscillation studies will also be described.
