SEZIONE DI ROMA III Short-Baseline Neutrino Oscillation Anomalies and Light Sterile Neutrinos
I review the anomalies found in short-baseline neutrino oscillation
experiments and I discuss their interpretation in the framework of 3+1
neutrino mixing with a sterile neutrino at the eV scale.
I present the results of the updated 3+1 global fit including the
recent MINOS, IceCube and NEOS data.
I discuss the implications for future neutrino oscillations and
neutrinoless double-beta decay experiments.
I also discuss the problem of the 5 MeV bump in the reactor
antineutrino spectrum in connection with the reactor antineutrino
anomaly and the interpretation of the Daya Bay fuel evolution data.
