Our group focused on searches for neutrino oscillations at a muon storage ring. In the experimental realm, we heard a report from J. Wilkes on the first K2K event. S. Boyd discussed distinguishing ν[sub μ]→ν[sub τ] from ν[sub μ]→ν[sub s] in SuperK using the up/down neutral current ratio. Progress in theoretical work was given by M. Campanelli, discussing matter-enhancement effects in the context of ICANOE. I. Mocioiu presented oscillation probabilities for matter-enhancement over long-baselines vs. L/E. Finally, we examined physics goals for a neutrino oscillation experiment at a muon storage ring long-baseline experiment. In that context, Deborah Harris summarized the discussions at the Lyon Workshop. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    For high power proton accelerators like SNS, ESS or the planned neutrino factory (CERN), negative ions are preferred because they offer charge exchange injection into the accumulation rings (non Liouvillian stacking). The low energy beam emittance is a key parameter in order to avoid emittance...

    Data from many different experiments have started to build a first glimpse of the phenomenology associated with neutrino oscillations. Results on atmospheric and solar neutrinos are particularly clear while a third result from LSND suggests a possibly very complex oscillation phenomenology. As...

    The Booster Neutrino Experiment (BooNE) has been approved to run at Fermilab and is currently under construction. This experiment will definitively test the result from LSND that indicates neutrino oscillations. If the LSND result is due to v[sub μ] → v[sub e] oscillations, the first...

    We examine the physics prospects of a neutrino oscillation experiment to be performed at a Neutrino Factory with a very long baseline in the range of 6500 km. We consider three family mixing and make the approximation that only one mass scale is relevant in our framework. We study the effect of...

    Discrimination between the v[sub μ] → v[sub τ] and v[sub μ] → v[sub s] oscillation modes, in the context of the Super Kamiokande experiment, is discussed. It is shown that the up-down production asymmetry of neutral current π[sup 0] events cannot currently be used...

    The intensity of proton accelerator has attained to the order to mega-watt, and several MW-class proton accelerators start to operate in the world. J-PARC is a complex of three accelerators, and generates a variety of secondary beams, i.e. muon beam, neutron beam, meson beam and neutrino beam....
