Title: Independent Determination of Oscillation Parameters for Neutrinos and Antineutrinos

Speaker: Kevin Kelly, Northwestern University

Abstract: Over the last several decades, a wide variety of experiments have begun to detect and measure neutrino oscillations. The most attractive explanation of this is the three-massive-neutrinos paradigm, in which six parameters govern the oscillations, and these parameters are the same for oscillations of neutrinos and antineutrinos. Next-generation experiments such as the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) and the Hyper-Kamiokande (Hyper-K) neutrino experiment are poised to improve on these measurements, in addition to other experimental goals. In this talk, I will discuss the state of oscillation parameters and the experiments by which they have been probed. I will also discuss the capability of DUNE and Hyper-K to measure these parameters without any assumption that they are identical between neutrino and antineutrino oscillations. Additionally, I will highlight discrepancies in existing measurements, and whether DUNE and Hyper-K will be able to detect distinct parameters for oscillations in the two sectors.
