neutrino

 [noo-tre´no]
a subatomic particle with an extremely small mass and no electric charge.

neutrino

(nū-trē′nō)
In physics, a subatomic particle at rest, with no mass and no electric charge. These particles are constantly flowing through the universe and are not known to affect the matter through which they pass.

This interpretation is supported by the detailed kinematical analysis of the event, assumed as the interaction of a tau-neutrino coming from oscillation, interacting in the lead plate of the selected brick, and producing a tau in turn decaying into [rho] + [v.sub.[tau]], finally followed by the decay [rho] [rho] [right arrow] [[pi].sup.0] + [pi].

minimally extended to include massive Dirac neutrinos and we attribute an anomalous magnetic moment (MM) and an electric dipole moment (EDM) to a massive tau-neutrino. This process sets limits on the tau-neutrino MM and EDM.
Taking this into consideration, we can obtain a limit for the tau-neutrino magnetic moment with [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII].
It is possible that the muon-neutrinos and tau-neutrinos are not stable.
