Neutrino Physics
by R. D. Peccei
Publisher: arXiv 1999
Number of pages: 45
Description:
These lectures describe some aspects of the physics of massive neutrinos. After a brief introduction of neutrinos in the Standard Model, the author discusses possible patterns for their masses. In particular, he shows how the presence of a large Majorana mass term for the right-handed neutrinos can engender tiny neutrino masses for the observed neutrinos.

Quarks: An Overview
- Wikipedia
A quark is an elementary particle and a fundamental constituent of matter. They combine to form hadrons, the most stable of which are protons and neutrons, the components of atomic nuclei. Quarks are never directly observed or found in isolation.
