Description
Neutrinos are the most promising sector where to look for something new in particle physics. Neutrino properties can be studied using two different approaches: with terrestrial experiments or complementary probes, such as cosmology. In this proposal we will explore both possibilities. Concerning terrestrial experiments, we will consider the problems related to the theoretical calculation of the flux of reactor antineutrinos, in light of the recent reactor anomalies and the so-called 5 MeV bump. The results will be applied to constrain the three-neutrino mixing parameters and the properties of a potential light sterile neutrino that could explain the short-baseli...
