The theory of solar neutrino generation is reviewed with an emphasis on the measurable fluxes from the [sup 8]B, [sup 7]Be, and p-p reactions. The “solar neutrino problem” is summarized. It is emphasized that the solar neutrino problem is not just a problem with solar model predictions, but that there is considerable difficulty in making a quantitatively consistent picture of the relative rates of the different reactions from current experimental data. In addition, recent results from Super-Kamiokande are presented for 825 days of operation. The measured absolute flux, spectrum, and day/night asymmetry of [sup 8]B solar neutrino-induced recoil electrons are given. Based on these results, some regions of neutrino oscillation parameter space are ruled out. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

The present reanalysis of Super-Kamiokande data shows strong evidence of r-mode...

    Neutrino mixing matrix appears to be close to bimaximal mixing, but for the solar angle which is definitively smaller than 45 degrees. Whereas it seems quite easy to understand bimaximal mixings, as in models using Le - Lμ - Lτ global symmetries, understanding the 12 degrees of deviation...
