|Abstract / Description:||The current status of neutrino physics is reviewed.|
With the recent establishment of non-zero neutrino masses and
lepton flavour mixing a long-standing open issue has been resolved.
However, fundamental questions still remain unanswered, among them the absolute
neutrino mass scale, precise values for the mixing angles and CP-phase, and the
questions whether the neutrino is its own antiparticle and
whether sterile neutrinos do exist in nature.
The article describes ideas and plans to tackle these issues in future
experiments, and comments on the increasingly important role of
neutrinos as messengers for the investigation of astrophysical processes.
