Abstract, Event Details: 

The T2K (Tokai to Kamioka) experiment in Japan has made many major advances in our understanding of neutrinos, bringing oscillation studies in to a new era of precision. After initially discovering muon-neutrino to electron-neutrino oscillations, T2K has taken more data not only with neutrinos but with antineutrinos as well. Comparing these results can test CP symmetry in the neutrino sector, which is the primary goal of neutrino physics in the next decade. I'll present the latest measurements of the oscillation parameters, as well as the current state of CP-violation searches and some of the non-oscillation physics being done by T2K.
