Including nucleon-nucleon correlations due to both Fermi statistics and nuclear forces, we have developed a general formalism for calculating the neutral-current neutrino-nucleon opacities in nuclear matter. We derive corrections to the dynamic structure factors due to both density and spin correlations and find that neutrino-nucleon cross sections are suppressed by large factors around and above nuclear density. In addition, we find that the spectrum of energy transfers in neutrino scatteringâ€¦Â Expand
