Pontecorvo's Original Oscillations Revisited

  title={Pontecorvo's Original Oscillations Revisited},

  journal={Physics Letters B},
Abstract We show that a left-handed neutrino ν L can oscillate into its CPT -conjugate state ν R with maximal amplitude, in direct analogy with K 0 − K 0 oscillations. Peculiarities of such oscillations under different conditions are studied.
