To the GUT Scale - the Majorana Neutrino

To connect our current results and those from future reactor and long baseline experiments to the preferred theory for neutrinos at the highest energy scales - a theory which explains tiny neutrino masses and enormous asymmetries of matter versus antimatter in the universe- we need one last ingredient. Neutrinos must be their own antiparticle. The third lecture will review this theory and the current generation of double beta decay experiments. The lecture will conclude with a look at a next generation detector proposal.
