Description

The early Universe is a very sensitive probe of various quantities related to neutrinos, e.g., the sum of neutrino masses, or the effective number of relativistic species. Currently, the most powerful cosmological observable are the temperature and polarisation anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background radiation, which were recently measured to great precision by the European Space Agency's Planck mission. In this talk I will review the status of cosmological constraints on neutrino properties after Planck and give an outlook on future prospects.
