Abstract

Monte Carlo simulations of a wide class of possible neutrino emission models are used to assign statistical significance to the limits set on the mass of the electron neutrino by observations of SN 1987A. Using the combined Kamiokande II and IMB data sets, we reject neutrino masses greater than 16 eV at the 5% significance level.
