Neutrino Driven Streaming Instabilities in a Dense Plasma
The nonlinear self-consistent propagation of neutrinos in a dense plasma is described using the relativistic kinetic equations for neutrinos and electrons. The general nonlinear dispersion relation…
THE ACTION OF NEUTRINO PONDEROMOTIVE FORCE ON SUPERNOVA DYNAMICS
Collective interactions of a beam of neutrinos/antineutrinos traversing a dense magnetized plasma of electrons/positrons, protons and neutrons are studied with particular reference to the case of a…
Supernova Bounds on Resonant Active-Sterile Neutrino Conversions
We discuss the effects of resonante → �s and ¯ �e → ¯s (�s is a sterile neutrino) conversions in the dense medium of a supernova. In particular, we assume the sterile neutrinos to be in the hot dark…
Ponderomotive force due to neutrinos.
Physical review. D, Particles and fields
The ponderomotive force is derived for an arbitrary distribution of neutrinos in a plasma using quantum statistical field theory and simple estimates suggest that it is too small to play an important role in the acceleration mechanism for plasma in type II supernovae.
Nonadiabatic level crossing in resonant neutrino oscillations.
Physical review letters
Analytic results are presented for the probability of detecting an electron neutrino after passage through a resonant oscillation region using the Landau-Zener transition probability between adiabatic states.
