Nuclear Physics for Beyond-the-Standard-Model Neutrino Physics (Teppei Katori, King’s College London)

Aula 603 e zoom

Seminario di Fenomenologia –

The role of precise nuclear physics theories and models is increasing in neutrino physics. This has been recognized in low-energy neutrino experiments for many years, but recent progress of accelerator-based neutrino oscillation experiments emphasizes the importance of nuclear physics, or many-body nuclear problems. Modern neutrino oscillation experiments, such as T2K and NOvA, require us to simulate nucleon correlations, and this trend will continue with future experiments, including DUNE and Hyper-Kamiokande. Surprisingly, the need of such nuclear theory is everywhere in high-energy particle physics, and new calculations reveal previously ignored connections between nuclear physics and particle physics.
In this talk, I outline the status of neutrino interaction physics, focusing on the 1 to 10 GeV region which is critical to neutrino oscillation experiments. Special attention is paid to the recent developments in nuclear models which made contributions to neutrino physics.
