 Physics , 2002, Abstract: The recent results from the Soudan 2, MACRO and SuperKamiokande experiments on atmospheric neutrino oscillations are summarized and discussed. Some features of possible future atmospheric neutrino experiments are presented.
 Physics , 2005, Abstract: The latest results from the Soudan 2, MACRO and SuperKamiokande experiments on atmospheric neutrino oscillations are summarised and discussed. In particular a discussion is made on the Monte Carlo simulations used for the atmospheric neutrino flux.
 Physics , 2001, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.64.093001 Abstract: We present an analysis of the neutrino oscillation solutions of the solar and atmospheric neutrino problems in the framework of four-neutrino mixing where a sterile neutrino is added to the three standard ones and the mass spectra presents two separated doublets. Such scenarios allow for simultaneous transitions of solar $\nu_e$, as well as atmospheric $\nu_\mu$, into active and sterile neutrinos controlled by the additional mixing angles $\vartheta_{23}$ and $\vartheta_{24}$, and they contain as limiting cases the pure solar $\nu_e$-active and $\nu_e$-sterile neutrino oscillations, and the pure atmospheric $\nu_\mu\to\nu_s$ and $\nu_\mu\to\nu_\tau$ oscillations, respectively. We evaluate the allowed active-sterile admixture in both solar and atmospheric oscillations from the combined analysis. Our results show that, although the Super-Kamiokande data disfavour both the pure $\nu_\mu\to\nu_s$ atmospheric channel and the pure $\nu_e\to\nu_s$ solar channel, the result from the combined analysis still favours close-to-pure active and sterile oscillations and disfavours oscillations into a near-maximal active-sterile admixture.
 Physics , 2001, DOI: 10.1016/S0920-5632(01)01064-7 Abstract: In this talk we present the update (including the recent SNO results) of our analysis of the neutrino oscillation solutions of the solar and atmospheric neutrino problems in the framework of four-neutrino mixing where a sterile neutrino is added to the three standard ones and the mass spectra present two separated doublets. Such scenarios allow for simultaneous transitions of solar $\nu_e$, as well as atmospheric $\nu_\mu$, into a combination of active and sterile neutrinos. We evaluate the allowed active-sterile admixture in both solar and atmospheric oscillations from the combined analysis. Our results show that, although the Super-Kamiokande data disfavour both the pure $\nu_\mu\to\nu_s$ atmospheric channel and, in combination with SNO, the pure $\nu_e\to\nu_s$ solar channel, the result from the combined analysis still favours close-to-pure active and sterile oscillations and disfavours oscillations into a near-maximal active-sterile admixture.
 Physics , 2001, Abstract: In this paper we first give a short overview of the MACRO detector, which was operational at the Gran Sasso Laboratory from 1989 till 2000. Then we present and discuss the results on atmospheric neutrino oscillations, concerning medium (~4 GeV) and high (~50 GeV) energy data. Using the Multiple Coulomb Scattering of muons inside the lower part of the detector, estimates of neutrino energies were made for the high energy sample. The MACRO data, angular distributions, absolute flux and L/E_nu distributions favour nu_mu <--> nu_tau oscillations with maximal mixing and Dm^2=2.5 x 10^-3 eV^2.
 M. Sioli Physics , 2002, DOI: 10.1016/S0920-5632(03)80404-8 Abstract: We present the latest results on the study of atmospheric neutrino oscillations with the MACRO detector at Gran Sasso. Two sub-samples of events have been analysed, both in terms of absolute flux and zenith angle distribution: high energy events (with ~50 GeV) and low energy events (with ~4 GeV). The high energy sample has been used also to check the nu_mu <-> nu_sterile oscillation hypothesis and to estimate neutrino energies using Multiple Coulomb Scattering informations. All these analyses are mutually consistent and strongly favour the nu_mu <-> nu_tau oscillation hypothesis with maximal mixing and Delta_m^2 = 2.5 10^-3 eV^2.
 M. C. Gonzalez-Garcia Physics , 2000, DOI: 10.1238/Physica.Topical.093a00026 Abstract: I review the status of neutrino masses and mixings in the light of the solar and atmospheric neutrino data in the framework of two--, three-- and four neutrino mixing.
 Physics , 1995, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.53.2809 Abstract: We analyze the solar and the atmospheric neutrino problems in the context of three flavour neutrino oscillations. We assume a mass hierarchy in the vacuum mass eigenvalues $\mu_3^2 \gg \mu_2^2 \geq \mu_1^2$, but make no approximation regarding the magnitudes of the mixing angles. We find that there are small but continuous bands in the parameter space where the constraints imposed by the current measurements of $\ {}^{71} Ga$, ${}^{37} Cl$ and Kamiokande experiments are satisfied at $1 \sigma$ level. The allowed parameter space increases dramatically if the error bars are enlarged to $1.6 \sigma$. The electron neutrino survival probability has different energy dependence in different regions of the parameter space. Measurement of the recoil electron energy spectrum in detectors that use $\nu - e$ scattering may distinguish between some of the allowed regions of parameter space. Finally we use the results for the parameter space admitted by the solar neutrinos as an input for the atmospheric neutrino problem and show that there exists a substantial region of parameter space in which both problems can be solved.
 Physics , 1999, Abstract: After some generalities on neutrino oscillations and on neutrinos, the recent experimental results presented by Soudan 2, MACRO and SuperKamiokande at the Neutrino'98 conference are summarized and discussed.
 Physics , 1992, DOI: 10.1016/0370-2693(93)90759-B Abstract: The Kamiokande II and IMB data on contained events induced by atmospheric neutrinos exhibit too low a ratio of muons to electrons, which has been interpreted as a possible indication of neutrino oscillations. At the same time, the recent data on upward--going muons in underground detectors have shown no evidence for neutrino oscillations, strongly limiting the allowed region of oscillation parameter space. In this paper we confront different types of neutrino oscillation hypotheses with the experimental results. The matter effects in $\nu_\mu \leftrightarrow \nu_e$ and in $\nu_\mu \leftrightarrow \nu_{sterile}$ oscillations are discussed and shown to affect significantly the upward--going muons.
