# Open system approach to neutrino oscillations

@article{Benatti2000OpenSA, title={Open system approach to neutrino oscillations}, author={Fabio Benatti and Roberto Floreanini}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2000}, volume={2000}, pages={032-032} }

Neutrino oscillations are studied in the general framework of open quantum systems by means of extended dynamics that take into account possible dissipative effects. These new phenomena induce modifications in the neutrino oscillation pattern that in general can be parametrized by means of six phenomenological constants. Although very small, stringent bounds on these parameters are likely to be given by future planned neutrino experiments.
