The evolution of neutrino flavor in dense environments such as core-collapse supernovae and binary compact object mergers constitutes an important and unsolved problem. Its solution has potential implications for the dynamics and heavy-element nucleosynthesis in these environments. In this paper, we build upon recent work to explore inference-based techniques for estimation of model parameters and neutrino flavor evolution histories. We combine data assimilation, ordinary differential equation…

Fast neutrino flavor instability and neutrino flavor lepton number crossings
In this paper, we show the equivalency between the existence of fast neutrino flavor instability and that of neutrino flavor lepton number (NFLN) crossings, which indicates that an NFLN angular


Inference offers a metric to constrain dynamical models of neutrino flavor transformation
The multi-messenger astrophysics of compact objects presents a vast range of environments where neutrino flavor transformation may occur and may be important for nucleosynthesis, dynamics, and a
Simulation of coherent nonlinear neutrino flavor transformation in the supernova environment: Correlated neutrino trajectories
We present results of large-scale numerical simulations of the evolution of neutrino and antineutrino flavors in the region above the late-time post-supernova-explosion proto-neutron star. Our

Temporal Instability Enables Neutrino Flavor Conversions Deep Inside Supernovae
We show that a self-interacting neutrino gas can spontaneously acquire a nonstationary pulsating component in its flavor content, with a frequency that can exactly cancel the ``multiangle''
Collective neutrino flavor transformation in supernovae
Author(s): Duan, H; Fuller, GM; Qian, YZ | Abstract: We examine coherent active-active channel neutrino flavor evolution in environments where neutrino-neutrino forward scattering can engender
Self-induced flavor conversion of supernova neutrinos on small scales
Self-induced flavor conversion of supernova (SN) neutrinos is a generic feature of neutrino-neutrino dispersion. The corresponding run-away modes in flavor space can spontaneously break the original

Neutrino oscillations in supernovae: Angular moments and fast instabilities
Recent theoretical work indicates that the neutrino radiation in core-collapse supernovae may be susceptible to flavor instabilities that set in far behind the shock, grow extremely rapidly, and have
