     3== Neutrino's phenomenology for 3rd year students ==
     4
     5This is a workshop intended for 3rd year physics majors on neutrino's oscillations.
     6Tee prerequisites are Quantum Mechanics and Special relativity. No Relativistic Quantum Mechanics or QFT needed.
     7The aim is to understand the basics of the oscillation physics, to be able to understand the experimental plots and
     8eventually address the debate which was going a few years ago on the famous factor of two.

     22   1. Derive the expression for the probability that a neutrino created with flavor l at time t=0 evolves to a different flavor l' after a time t.
     23   1. Write it in terms of a distance from the creation point. Assume neutrino's move (almost) at the speed of light. The probability depends on the neutrino's masses: How?
     24   1. Find the explicit formulas in the case of two flavor oscillations.
     25   1. Consider unstable neutrinos
