Abstract

A neutrino is a subatomic particle that is at the forefront of modern-day particle physics research. The standard model predicts that The Standard Model of particle physics accurately predicts the presence and nature of subatomic particles. However, there are some issues that exist within the standard model predictions and one such issue pertains to neutrino masses. Neutrinos can be classified into three different species and can oscillate between the three. Neutrino oscillation is the evidence that led to the conclusion that neutrinos are massive particles.
