VIA lecture by Prof. William Louis "Significant Excess of Electron-Like Events from the MiniBooNE Short-Baseline Neutrino Experiment" was given on 02.11.2018. His slides and record of the lecture will appear soon in VIA library.
The following questions were put in discussion.
Houri Ziaeepour: In one of the slides you mentioned a mass of ~1.4eV for sterile neutrino. The CMB limit on the mass of relativistic particle is 0.16 eV. Can you comment on this?
Houri Ziaeepour: You also mentioned the decay of sterile nu or light DM. How well this option is constrained?
Yaroslav Nikitenko: Can this excess be due to cross sections? I mean some theoretical systematic error.
Houri Ziaeepour: Any detector with better resolution at low energies?

You are welcome to continue discussion of this exciting topic in replies to this post.
