The discovery of neutrino mass in 1998 spawned a world-wide effort to better understand neutrino properties using neutrinos from the Sun, the atmosphere, reactors, and from accelerators. This program of study has taught us much about neutrinos, but many important questions remain: What is the ordering of neutrino masses? What are the symmetries in neutrino mixing? Do neutrinos violate CP? Is...

There has been tremendous progress in understanding the neutrino properties since the discovery of neutrino masses by SuperKamiokande in 1998. The experimental data presents the following theoretical challenges: why the neutrino masses are so small compared to charged fermion masses, and why the leptonic mixing pattern is so different from their quark counterpart. I will review some recent...

Neutrino oscillation experiments performed throughout the latter half of the twentieth century have yielded valuable information on the nature of neutrino masses and mixings. The evidence gathered has provided the first positive evidence for physics beyond the standard model. Currently, a new suite of precision experiments will come online to provide greater insight into the physics and...
