THE INFANCY AND YOUTH OF NEUTRINO PHYSICS : SOME RECOLLECTIONS

B. Pontecorvo
Abstract : The talk is quite subjective in character, and is in no way complete. It is not a chapter of history of particle physics. It is a collection of a few short stories related to neutrino physics. Two of these, about Pauli and Fermi, touch on subjects already covered by a number of physicists, including the suthor, in connection with the recent neutrino's fiftieth birthday. A story about Majorana's work on Majorana's fermions, which is following, has been covered much less extensively, at least in English. There follow a few recollections, very personal indeed, related to the experimental and theoretical work of the author in proposing and developing the Cl-A method of neutrino detection, in establishing the notion of weak processes and in proposing a new type of weak interaction investigations - high energy neutrino experiments.
