Recent Electro-weak News from the Neutrino World
Dr. Jaehoon Yu
University of Texas, Arlington
Neutrino-nucleon scattering experiments have been used
to probe the structure inside nucleons. In addition, since
neutrinos interact only through weak forces, they probe
the character of this interaction separate from the other forces.
In this talk, I will be presenting the latest result in this
area of investigation
from the NuTeV experiment at
Fermilab's fixed target program. The new result in the
weak mixing angle measurements deviates from theoretical
prediction by about 3 standard deviations, prompting possibilities
of many new interpretations.
