Scientific Program

As part of the on-going 2021 Snowmass process, the Neutrino Theory topical group TF11 is organizing a virtual Neutrino Theory mini-workshop to be held on September 21-23, 2020. The meeting will encompass a broad range of topics in neutrino theory, including neutrinos in astrophysics & cosmology, neutrino cross sections, neutrinoless double-beta decay, oscillations, mass and flavor model building, and BSM physics at neutrino experiments.

The TF11 topical group is focused on the theory of neutrinos physics including:

  • Exploring the origin of neutrino masses. What is the physics responsible for nonzero neutrino masses? How does this physics connect to other outstanding questions in particle physics and cosmology

  • Uncovering the fundamental physics of flavor: What precision is required to measure the neutrino oscillation parameters?

  • Addressing current and future neutrino puzzles: Is there new physics behind the short-baseline anomalies?

We also concentrate on different aspects of theory for neutrino physics including:

  • Understanding astrophysical neutrino sources and how to extract different neutrino properties from cosmology

  • Theoretical challenges associated with the computation of neutrino scattering on different targets and at different energy scales, including CEvNS, neutrino-nucleus scattering up to DIS, ultra-high energy neutrinos scattering on the atmosphere or propagating through the Earth

  • Computation of nuclear-matrix elements for neutrinoless double-beta decays and related processes

  • Neutrino propagation and flavor evolution in dense environments

  • Establishing connections between searches for new phenomena at neutrino facilities and new-physics models

We strongly encourage you to submit a contributed talk on any of the topics above. Your inputs are extremely valuable to the Snowmass effort.

Thank you form the TF11
