              When Kai Zuber's pioneering text on neutrinos was published in 2003, the author correctly predicted that the field would see tremendous growth in the immediate future. In that book, Professor Zuber provided a comprehensive self-contained examination of neutrinos, covering their r...esearch history and theory, as well as their application to particle physics, astrophysics, nuclear physics, and the broad reach of cosmology; but now to be truly comprehensive and accurate, the field's seminal reference needs to be revised and expanded to include the latest research, conclusions, and implications. Revised as needed to be equal to the research of today, Neutrino Physics, Third Edition delves into neutrino cross sections, mass measurements, double beta decay, solar neutrinos, neutrinos from supernovae, and high energy neutrinos, as well as new experimental results in the context of theoretical models. It also provides entirely new experimental results in the context of theoretical models. Written to be accessible to graduate students and readers from diverse backgrounds, this edition, like the first, provides both an introduction to the field as well as the information needed by those looking to make their own contribution to it. And like the second edition, it whets the researcher's appetite, going beyond certainty to pose those questions that still need answers. Features: Presents the only single-author comprehensive text on neutrino physics Includes experimental and theoretical particle physics and examines solar neutrinos and astroparticle implications Offers details on new developments and recent experiments

              In 2018 solar physics and neutrino research celebrated various historical highlight events. Among them were 80 years of the paper by Hans Bethe discussing solar fusion cycles as energy source of stars, the first results from the Homestake chlorine experiment celebrating 50 years ...as well as the discovery of neutrino oscillations 20 years ago by Super-Kamiokande. Since the last International Solar Neutrino Conference in 1997, solar neutrino detection was recognized by two Nobel Prizes, given to Raymond Davis Jr. (2002) and Arthur McDonald (2015).The present proceedings volume is based on the given talks and provides a comprehensive and detailed overview of recent developments and discoveries in the field of solar neutrino physics. Articles were written by renowned experts of their field and cover a wide range in experiments and theory from current and future solar neutrino measurements, elemental abundances, nuclear astrophysics, helioseismology, impact on general neutrino physics and more. Further contributions focus on experiments like Homestake, SAGE and GALLEX which are widely known as historic milestones in the field of solar neutrino physics.

              Die letzten bei den Jahrzehnte haben eine explosive Entwicklung der Teil und Kosmologie erlebt. Die Teilchenphysik erwies chenphysik, Astrophysik sich als ein entscheidendes Mittel zum tieferen Verstandnis des Universums. Das Aufkommen der Theorien der Grossen Vereinigung der Kra...fte in der Teil chenphysik erlaubte, das fruhe Universum bis zu den fruhesten Zeitpunkten zuruckzuverfolgen. Umgekehrt treten in astrophysikalischen und kosmologi schen Prozessen Energien auf, die man in Beschleunigern auf absehbare oder besser unabsehbare Zeit nicht erreichen kann, und die die Realisierung ei nes Teils der Fulle der exotischen teilchentheoretischen Vorhersagen erlaubt haben konnten: Baryogenese, Inflation, die Produktion exotischer Teilchen - Monopole, kosmische Strings, Axionen und viele andere. Supersymmetri sche Teilchen (Neutralinos) sind Kandidaten fur kalte dunkle Materie, die die soeben der Beobachtung zuganglich gewordene grossraumige Struktur des Universums und ihre Entstehung verstandlich machen konnten. Neutrinos sind Kandidaten fur heisse dunkle Materie. Eigenschaften von Neutrinos be einflussen die Explosion der Supernovae. Astrophysikalische Neutrinoquellen helfen bei der Bestimmung von Neutrino-Eigenschaften, die eine Schlussel funktion fur die Struktur der Elementarteilchen-Theorien einnehmen. Astro physikalisch erzeugte Axionen sondieren das starke CP-Problem der QCD. Es entstand ein neues Forschungsgebiet, die Teilchenastrophysik, in der man von zwei Seiten versucht, einigen der fundamentalen Probleme der modernen Physik naherzukommen. Das enorme Wachstum in diesem Bereich macht es - insbesondere fur den Anfanger auf diesem Gebiet - zunehmend schwieriger, der Entwicklung auf dem Wege uber die Fachliteratur zu folgen.
