The elements (squared) of the neutrino mixing matrix are found to satisfy, as functions of the induced mass, a set of differential equations. They show clearly the dominance of pole terms when the neutrino masses "cross". Using the known vacuum mixing parameters as initial conditions, it is found that these equations have very good approximate solutions, for all values of the induced mass. The results are applicable to Long Baseline Experiments (LBL).

Matter effects of sterile neutrino in light of renormalization-group equations

Abstract The renormalization-group equation (RGE) approach to neutrino matter effects is further developed in this work. We derive a complete set of differential equations for effective mixing

Sum rules and asymptotic behaviors of neutrino mixing and oscillations in matter

Similar to the case in vacuum, it is straightforward to describe neutrino oscillations in matter with the effective lepton flavor mixing matrix U∼ and neutrino mass-squared differences Δ∼ji≡m∼j2−m∼i2

Three-flavor neutrino oscillations in matter can be described by three effective neutrino masses mi (for i = 1, 2, 3) and the effective mixing matrix Vαi (for α = e, µ, τ and i = 1, 2, 3). When the

Flavor Mixing and the Permutation Symmetry among Generations

In the standard model, the permutation symmetry among the three generations of fundamental fermions is broken by the Higgs couplings. It is found that the symmetry is restored if we include the mass

Abstract When neutrinos pass through a medium, they would bear the well known matter effect. In this talk, we will focus on the less discussed matter-dominated case. We find that when neutrinos



Properties of the neutrino mixing matrix

For neutrino mixing we propose to use the parameter set Xi (=|Vei|2) and Ωi (=ϵijk|Vμj|2|Vτk|2), with two constraints. These parameters are directly measurable since the neutrino oscillation

Identifying the neutrino mass spectrum from the neutrino burst from a supernova

The current data on solar and atmospheric neutrinos admit more than one solutions in terms of the oscillations between three neutrino species. We examine the consequences of these different

Rephasing invariance and the neutrino μ-τ symmetry

The vacuum neutrino mixing is known to exhibit an approximate $\mu-\tau$ symmetry, which was shown to be preserved for neutrino propagating in matter. This symmetry reduces the neutrino transition

Neutrino Oscillations in Matter

The effect of coherent forward scattering must be taken into account when considering the oscillations of neutrinos traveling through matter. In particular, for the case of massless neutrinos for

Using a set of rephasing-invariant variables, it is shown that the renormalization group equations for quark mixing parameters can be written in a form that is compact, in addition to having simple

Neutrino Oscillations in Matter

Nonzero neutrino masses would provide new, unique information on particle physics beyond the standard model. Neutrino flavor oscillations provide the most sensitive method for directly testing for
