In this intriguing and accessible book, physicist Allan Franklin examines the experiments on neutrino oscillations. He argues that this history gives us good reason to believe in the existence of the neutrino, a particle that interacts so weakly with matter that its interaction length is measured in light years of lead. Only recently, the scientific process has provided evidence of the elusive neutrino. Written in a style accessible to any reader with a college education in physics, Are There Really Neutrinos? is of interest to students and researchers alike.

Allan Franklin is Professor of Physics at the University of Colorado. He works on the history and philosophy of science, particularly on the roles of scientific experiment. His previous books include Can That Be Right? Essays on Experiment, Evidence, and Science; The Rise and Fall of the Fifth Force: Discovery, Pursuit, and Justification in Modern Physics; and The Principle of Inertia in the Middle Ages He is also the recipient of several awards, including The Distinguished Research Lectureship from the Council on Research and Creative Work from the University of Colorado, as well as the Boulder Faculty Assembly Excellence in Research, Scholarly, and Creative Work Award.
