Nilendra G. Deshpande
Nilendra Deshpande's research interests are in electroweak interactions and
grand-unification. The standard model proposed by Glashow-Salam-Weinberg has been
immensely successful. However, precision tests of the model are just starting. These
tests can be carried out in the decays of a heavy quark, like the b quark; or in the
decays of the Z boson. Experimental data can then lead to limits on the new physics like
supersymmetric particle masses or masses and mixing of additional Z bosons. A poorly
understood part of the standard model deals with CP properties between matter and
anti-matter. New tests of this phenomenon in heavy quark decays would throw light on the
subject. Another topic under study is the question of neutrino masses and oscillations
as they relate to the Solar Neutrino puzzle. Advent of new detectors makes this area
exciting for the near future.
