Title: Neutrinos as the key to the universe as we know it
Speaker: Yuval Grossman, Cornell University
Abstract: There are three open questions in physics which seem unrelated:
Why is there only matter around us? How neutrinos acquire their tiny
masses? Why all particles in Nature have integer electric charges?
It turns out that these open questions maybe related.
In this talk I will explain these open questions, the connection between them, and describe the on-going theoretical and experimental efforts in understanding them.
