[Host: Brad Cox]
Today there is much concern about the tiny neutral particle the neutrino.
It has been in the lime-light in the popular press from science magazines
to headlines in the New York Times. This is a great change from when the
particle was first postulated to exist. Even its advocates doubted its
existence at that point. However, now, the neutrino plays a pivotal role
in many major discoveries in elementary particle physics, astrophysics
and cosmology, and will continue to be important to study for decades to
come. This colloquium will describe the neutrino, discuss its major role
in advancing our understanding of elementary particle physics and conclude
with the exciting new results we can expect from future experiments
currently under construction.
