Description

The discovery of neutrino oscillation has provided arguably the most compelling evidence for Physics beyond the Standard Model. Their observed small masses hint at Physics at a very high energy scale, and thus offer a unique window into the theory that underlies the Standard Model of Particle Physics. In this talk, I will review the current state of neutrino physics. I will describe possible new physics where the observed pattern of neutrino masses can arise. I will elucidate how neutrinos may be the key in the generation of the observed cosmological matter-antimatter asymmetry of the Universe.
