Reference Entry
A definition of the term neutrino is presented. According to the "Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary," published by F.A. Davis Co., the term refers to a sub-atomic particles at rest, without mass and electric charge and are in constant motion. Likewise, the pronunciation of the term is also provided.

In particular, the mass of the neutrinos plays an important role in the determination of the equation of state w of Dark Energy. Using the Heidelberg-Moscow double beta decay experiment,...
