Title: Searches for Extra Neutrinos
Speaker: Yu Gao (Wayne State University)
Abstract: Extra species of non-Standard-Model neutrinos have been an appealing direction of new physics from both experimental phenomena and several theoretical frameworks. Their possible masses, if accessible to current experiments, can range from the eV scale up to multiples of TeV. For light sterile neutrinos I will discuss the recent developments in their measurement through high-energy atmospheric and very short baseline neutrino oscillations. I will also discuss the searches for heavy extra neutrinos from direct and indirect detection, as well as the prospects of directly probing the heavy neutrinos at the large hadron collider.
