The smallest neutrino mixing angle 13 has been successfully measured by the disappearance of reactor antineutrinos at RENO, Daya Bay, and Double Chooz. The oscillation frequency is also measured based on energy and baseline dependent disappearance probability of reactor antineutrinos. Recent results find a variation in the observed reactor antineutrino flux as a function of the reactor fuel evolution. We report more precisely measured values of theta_13 and dm^2_ee and results on the evolution of observed reactor antineutrino yield and spectrum.

The paper gives an up-to-date review of reactor neutrino experiments and gives an excellent overview of the flux normalization anomaly and the 5 MeV excess.
