Since the discovery of neutrino oscillation in 1998, an overall picture of the flavor-mass mixing in the lepton sector has been build.

Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: “The Life and Death of Turbulence”

Nigel Goldenfeld (University of Illinois – Urbana Champaign)

Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: “Fast Radio Bursts”

Victoria Kaspi (McGill University)
