The detection of astrophysical neutrinos, certainly a break-through result, introduced new experimental challenges and fundamental questions about acceleration mechanisms of cosmic rays. On one hand IceCube succeeded in finding an unambiguous proof for the existence of a diffuse astrophysical neutrino flux, on the other hand the precise determination of its spectral index and normalization...

New and more precise measurements of neutrino cross sections have renewed the interest in a better understanding of electroweak interactions on nucleons and nuclei. This effort is crucial to achieve the precision goals of the neutrino oscillation program, making new discoveries, like the CP violation in the leptonic sector, possible. We review the recent progress in the physics of neutrino...

Some of the most precise measurements of neutrino oscillation parameters have been made using accelerator based muon neutrino beams. By studying how the flavour composition of a beam of muon neutrinos changes and they become electron and tau neutrinos, one can not only measure several mixing angles of the PMNS matrix, but also their mass differences squared. After a short introduction into the...
