Justbefore the initial programof Orbis Scientiae 1998 went to press the inside track in physics was once abruptly ruled by way of the invention that neutrinos are, in the end, enormous debris. This was once anticipated via a few physicists together with Dr. Behram Kusunoglu, who had apaper released in this topic in 1976 within the actual assessment. substantial neutrinos don't inevitably simplify the physics of common debris yet they do supply easy particle physics a brand new course. If the darkish topic content material ofthe universe seems to consist ofneutrinos, the truth that they're vast should still make an influence on cosmology. the various papers during this quantity have tried to supply solutions to those questions. we have now a ways to head sooner than we discover the genuine purposes for nature’s construction of neutrinos. one other neutrino-related occasion was once the passing in their discoverer, Fredrick Reines: The trustees of the worldwide starting place, individuals of the Orbis Scientiae 1998, commit this convention to Fredrick Reines of the collage of California at Irvine. The past due Professor Reines was once a faithful and energetic member of those sequence of meetings at the frontiers of physics and cosmology given that 1964. He additionally sewed as one of many trustees of the worldwide beginning for the earlier 3 years. Professor Reines came upon the main elusive particle, the neutrino, in 1954. we're proud to claim that we well-known the significance of this discovery by means of awarding him the J.

This booklet has come into being due to medical debates. And those debates have decided its constitution. the 1st bankruptcy is within the type of Socratic dialogues among a mathematician (MATH. ), physicists (pHYS. and EXP. ) and a thinker (PHIL. ). notwithstanding, even if one of many authors is a theoretical physicist and the opposite a mathematician, the reader mustn't ever imagine that their reviews were divided one of the members of the dialogues.

I will begin by reviewing the quantitative predictions of the combined standard solar model and describing the three solar neutrino problems that are established by the chlorine, Kamiokande, SAGE, GALLEX, and SuperKamiokande experiments. I then detail the uncertainties in the standard model predictions and then show that helioseismological measurements indicate that the standard solar model predictions are accurate for our purposes. I next discuss the implications for solar neutrino research of the precise agreement between helioseismological measurements and the predictions of standard solar models.

1 of Ref. 10, shows the predictions of 19 standard solar models in the plane defined by the 7Be and 8B neutrino fluxes. The abbreviations that are used in the figure to identify different solar models are defined in the bibliographical item, Ref. 22. The figure includes all standard solar models with which I am familiar that were published in refereed journals in the decade 1988-1998. All of the fluxes are normalized to the predictions of the Bahcall-Pinsonneault 1998 solar model, BP9811. The rectangular error box defines the 3V error range of the BP98 fluxes.
