Measurement Of The Neutrino Oscillation Angle Theta13

This is a very good review article on neutrino oscillation and also the measurement of Theta13, which has been a very active investigation area lately. The article is aimed at "non-HEP Physicists", meaning you have to remember quite a bit of your quantum mechanics to decipher all those matrices. You get to see, quite early on, why the detection of the change in flavor of neutrinos allows not only the measurement of the mixing angle, but also implies that neutrinos must have mass.
