We present the GLoBES (" General Long Baseline Experiment Simulator ") software package, which allows the simulation of long-baseline and reactor neutrino oscillation experiments. One part of the software is the abstract experiment definition language to define experiments with beam and full detector descriptions as accurate as possible. Many systematics(More)
We present Version 3.0 of the GLoBES (" General Long Baseline Experiment Sim-ulator ") software, which is a simulation tool for short-and long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments. As a new feature, GLoBES 3.0 allows for user-defined system-atical errors, which can also be used to simulate experiments with multiple discrete sources and detectors. In(More)
A conditioned taste aversion procedure was used to produce an avoidance of saccharin by rats. In the first experiment, saccharin consumption was paired with cyclophosphamide in two conditioning trials during which the animals were permitted to engage in pica. In the second experiment, saccharin consumption was paired with lithium chloride in four(More)
We investigate the possibility to use the neutrinos coming from a future galactic supernova explosion to perform neutrino oscillation tomography of the Earth's core. We propose to be using existing or planned detectors, resulting in an additional payoff. Provided that all of the discussed uncertainties can be reduced as expected, we find that the average(More)
Neutrino decay in vacuum has often been considered as an alternative to neutrino oscillations. Because non-zero neutrino masses imply the possibility of both neutrino decay and neutrino oscillations, we present a model-independent formal treatment of these combined scenarios. For that, we show for the example of Majoron decay that in many cases decay(More)
How astrophysical neutrino sources could be used for early measurements of neutrino mass hierarchy and leptonic CP phase Abstract We discuss the possible impact of astrophysical neutrino flux measurements at neutrino telescopes on the neutrino oscillation program of reactor experiments and neutrino beams. We consider neutrino fluxes from neutron sources,(More)
Supernova neutrinos could be well-suited for probing neutrino decay, since decay may be observed even for very small decay rates or coupling constants. We will use a combined description of neutrino decay and neutrino oscillations for supernova neu-trinos, especially taking into account two properties: One is the radially symmetric neutrino flux, allowing a(More)

In this paper, we investigate the effects of random fluctuations of the Earth matter density for long baselines on the neutrino oscillation transition probabilities. We especially identify relevant parameters characterizing the matter density noise and calculate their effects by averaging over statistical ensembles of a large number of matter density(More)
Because the propagation of neutrinos is affected by the presence of Earth matter, it opens new possibilities to probe the Earth's interior. Different approaches range from techniques based upon the interaction of high energy (above TeV) neutrinos with Earth matter, to methods using the MSW effect on the neutrino oscillations of low energy (MeV to GeV)(More)
