10月20日(土) 2限、3限、4限、5限 @8号館307室

講義要旨:
An overview of phenomenology of neutrinos
will be given in English with the following contents:
1. Theoretical description of neutrino masses
2. Neutrino propagation in vacuum & in matter
3. Information from experiments: Reactor neutrinos
4. Information from experiments: Atmospheric neutrinos
5. Information from experiments: Solar neutrinos
6. Information from experiments: Accelerator neutrinos
7. Information from experiments: High energy cosmic neutrinos
8. Non-standard frameworks of neutrino mixings:
  Sterile neutrinos, non-standard interactions, unitarity violation.

Those who took ``Advanced particle physics'' (素粒子物理学特論)
cannot get a credit from this course because the contents
are exactly the same.

Registration should be made at the Academic Administration
Division of the main office of Faculty of Science
by Oct. 12 (Fri).

題目: Neutrino oscillation physics at long-baseline experiments

講 師:  Manojit Ghosh氏 (Harish-Chandra Research Institute)

時刻&教室
10月31日(水) 2限、4限、5限 @8号館307室

講義要旨:
I will give a series of lectures on neutrino oscillation physics at
long-baseline experiments. The lectures will be given in English.
Each lecture will include tutorials consisting of both numerical and
analytical problem solving. As the lectures will be based on the
ongoing developments of the current research, it will be great if the
students bring their laptop computers. It will also be helpful for
numerical problem solving. The contents of each lecture are given
below.

• Lecture 1:
(a) Neutrinos and their properties
(b) Neutrino oscillation
vacuum oscillations and matter effects
(c) Derivation of Neutrino oscillation probability
two flavor vacuum, two flavor matter, 3 flavor one mass scale
dominance approximation, 3 flavor small θ 13 approximation
(d) Neutrino oscillation experiments/long-baseline experiments
production and detection mechanisms, signal and backgrounds, charge
current and neutral current events
(e) Current status of neutrino oscillation parameters
• Lecture 2:
(a) Parameter degeneracy in neutrino oscillation experiments
hierarchy-δ CP degeneracy, octant-δ CP degeneracy, generalized
hierarchy octant-δ CP degeneracy
b) Tutorials of lecture 1
intermediate steps of derivations, plotting probability formulas and
understanding oscillatory behaviors
• Lecture 3:
(a) The method of χ^2 analysis for studying neutrino oscillation physics
flux, cross section, energy resolution, efficiency, calculating
events, marginalization, priors, systematic errors, Gaussian and
Poisson distributions
(b) Tutorials of lecture 2
understanding degeneracy by numerical analysis
• Lecture 4:
(a) Neutrino oscillation beyond standard three flavor scenario
non standard interactions and sterile neutrinos
(b) Tutorials of lecture 3
estimating sensitivity of the experiments by χ 2 analysis
