Description

I review the experimental indications in favor of short-baseline neutrino oscillations. I discuss their interpretation in the framework of neutrino mixing schemes with one or more sterile neutrinos which have masses around the eV scale. I present arguments in favor of 3+1 neutrino mixing with one sterile neutrino at the eV scale. I discuss the implications for neutrinoless double-beta decay and cosmology.
