The NuTeV neutrino measurement of the Weinberg angle differs by 3 standard deviations from measurements at the Z pole. We review the status of various possibilities to explain this result, including contributions from physics outside the standard model; effects of radiative corrections; nuclear corrections to parton distributions; isospin-violating effects; and effects due to strange quarks.
