Oscillation Parameters Present: Session Summary
2019 April 24
Session I of the Neutrino Oscillation Workshop 2018 Conference, “Neutrino Oscillations: Present”, is summarised. Results were presented by the currently-running long-baseline oscillation experiments T2K and NOvA, as well as from the accelerator experiments OPERA and MiniBooNE. Status reports and results from experiments using short-baseline accelerator neutrinos (ICARUS and MicroBooNE), atmospheric neutrinos (Super-K, IceCube and ANTARES), and those from reactors (Daya Bay and Double Chooz), and from the Sun and the Earth (Borexino) were also presented. Our current knowledge of neutrino oscillation parameters depends significantly on the experimental inputs that inform us of details of the production and interactions of neutrinos, which were presented by the NA61/SHINE hadron production experiment and cross section measurements from T2K and MINERvA, as well as a review of the status of our understanding of neutrino production at nuclear reactors. The session also included theoretical reviews of the current status of neutrino oscillations, and phenomenological studies on neutrino tomography and experimental studies to support nuclear matrix element calculations (NUMEN).
