VIRTUAL MEETING ONLY: Neutrino Seminar Series – Neutrino Properties from Cosmological Data

  • May 6, 2021, 1:00 pm US/Central

Presented by Marilena Loverde from Stony Brook University

Abstract: Neutrinos and other light relic particles leave a number of imprints in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropies and on maps large-scale structure of the universe. These imprints can not only demonstrate the presence of these particles and constrain their masses but can provide insight into their nature via signatures of interactions or other behavior that changes during the history of the Universe. I will describe this physics, present constraints on non-standard neutrino self-interactions from current cosmic datasets and discuss prospects for constraining neutrino properties with the proposed CMB-S4 experiment.
