  journal={General Relativity and Gravitation},
In a 1996 JRO Fellowship Research Proposal (Los Alamos), the author suggested that neutrino oscillations may provide a powerful indirect energy transport mechanism to supernovae explosions. The principal aim of this addendum is to present the relevant unedited text of Section 1 of that proposal. We then briefly remind, (a) of an early suggestion of Mazurek on vacuum neutrino oscillations and their relevance to supernovae explosion, and (b) Wolfenstein's result on suppression of the effect by…

Spin-half fermions with mass dimension one: theory, phenomenology, and dark matter
We provide the first details on the unexpected theoretical discovery of a spin-one-half matter field with mass dimension one. It is based upon a complete set of dual-helicity eigenspinors of the
Neutrino oscillations with disentanglement of a neutrino from its partners
We argue that in order to understand existing data on neutrino oscillations, and to design future experiments, it is imperative to appreciate the role of quantum entanglement. Once this is accounted
Testing gravity with neutrinos: From classical to quantum regime
In this manuscript, we survey the main characteristics that provide neutrinos with the capability of being the perfect candidate to test gravity. A number of potentially resourceful scenarios is
CP Violating Tri-Bimaximal-Cabibbo Mixing
In view of the new data from the Daya Bay and RENO collaborations, King has presented a very natural deformation of tri-bimaximal mixing. Here, we show that L/E flatness of the e-like event ratio in
Addendum to Research MMMCV; A Man/Microbio/Megabio/Computer Vision
It is concluded that, practical frames via a time algorithm to this model, fixates such predictable patterns of motion of scenery bodies onto recordable observation points of a MMMCV system, which suppresses/predicts superposition phenomena coming from a human subject and/or other bio-subjects for any decision making event.


These notes present a critique of the standard three-flavor neutrino oscillation framework. The design proposal of the MINOS at Fermilab based on a two-mass eigenstate framework may require serious
Resonant neutrino oscillations in matter
A Half-Century with Solar Neutrinos
Neutrinos are neutral, nearly massless particles that move at nearly the speed of light and easily pass through matter. Wolfgang Pauli (1945 Nobel Laureate in Physics) postulated the existence of the
Supernova simulations with Boltzmann neutrino transport: a comparison of methods
Accurate neutrino transport has been built into spherically symmetric simulations of stellar core collapse and postbounce evolution. The results of such simulations agree that spherically symmetric
Neutrino interferometry in curved spacetime
Gravitational lensing introduces the possibility of multiple (macroscopic) paths from an astrophysical neutrino source to a detector. Such a multiplicity of paths can allow for quantum mechanical
Supernova science at spallation neutron sources
New facilities to measure neutrino–nucleus cross sections, such as those possible in conjunction with spallation neutron sources, could provide an experimental foundation for the many
Gravitationally Induced Quantum Mechanical Phases and Neutrino Oscillations in Astrophysical Environments
We report a new effect of gravitationally induced quantum mechanical phases in neutrino oscillations. In the neighborhood of a neutron star, gravitationally induced quantum mechanical phases are
A Simple General Treatment of Flavor Oscillations
A unique description avoiding confusion is presented for all flavor-oscillation experiments in which particles of a definite flavor are emitted from a localized source. The probability for finding a
Super-Kamiokande atmospheric neutrino results
We present atmospheric neutrino results from a 79 kiloton year (1289 days) exposure of the Super-Kamiokande detector. Our data are well explained by $\nu_{\mu} \to \nu_{\tau}$ 2-flavor oscillations.
Three-neutrino model analysis of the world's oscillation data
A model of neutrino oscillation experiments is constructed. The experiments incorporated are: solar neutrinos (Chlorine, Gallium, Super-K, and SNO), reactor neutrinos (Bugey and CHOOZ), beam stop
