Abstract

All solar, atmospheric, reactor and long-baseline accelerator neutrino data can be explained by postulating that there are three neutrinos, that these have non-zero, non-identical masses, and that the neutrino mass eigenstates are not aligned with the neutrino flavor eigenstates. In this talk, I first briefly discuss experimental data - along with possible interpretations - that may already point to physics beyond the minimal massive neutrino paradigm. I then discuss the possibility that there are more neutrinos than the old standard model called for. These so-called sterile neutrinos are a very simple and often quite useful extension of the standard model, and may prove to be a potentially testable side-effect of the physics responsible for neutrino masses.
