Flavor oscillations in the supernova hot bubble region: nonlinear effects of neutrino background.
TLDR
Contrary to previous studies, it is found that in the neutrino-driven wind the electron fraction Y(e) always stays below 0.5, corresponding to a neutron-rich environment as required by r-process nucleosynthesis.
Neutrino mixing and nucleosynthesis in core-collapse supernovae
A simple description of core-collapse supernovae is given. Properties of the neutrino-driven wind, neutrino fluxes and luminosities, reaction rates and the equilibrium electron fraction in supernova
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''
Theoretical Overview of Neutrino Properties
I give an overview of some basic properties of massive neutrinos. The first part of this talk is devoted to three fundamental questions about three known neutrinos and to their flavor issues -- the
New effects of non-standard self-interactions of neutrinos in a supernova
Neutrino self-interactions are known to lead to non-linear collective flavor oscillations in a core-collapse supernova. We point out new possible effects of non-standard self-interactions (NSSI) of
The influence of collective neutrino oscillations on a supernova r process
Recently, it has been demonstrated that neutrinos in a supernova oscillate collectively. This process occurs much deeper than the conventional matter-induced Mikheyev–Smirnov–Wolfenstein effect and
Do many-particle neutrino interactions cause a novel coherent effect?
We investigate whether coherent flavor conversion of neutrinos in a neutrino background is substantially modified by many-body effects, with respect to the conventional one-particle effective
Collective neutrino oscillations with the halo effect in single-angle approximation
We perform a self-consistent calculation of collective neutrino oscillations including the effect of back scattered neutrinos (Halo effect) in the `single-angle' approximation, within a spherically
Neutrino-2008: Where are we? Where are we going?
Our present knowledge of neutrinos can be summarized in terms of the 'standard neutrino scenario'. Phenomenology of this scenario as well as attempts to uncover physics behind neutrino mass and

TLDR
Here the general description of neutrino mixing and spin flip in a background of matter when the nonforward scattering rate is important is developed and the constraints are estimated.

TLDR
The mixing of neutrinos being scattered randomly by a background medium is considered and it is pointed out that quantum damping effects will tend to inhibit neutrino oscillations and provide some implications for the early Universe.

TLDR
It is shown that neutrino-neutrino interactions maintain coherence in one system for which [ital a] priori one expected decoherence is expected.
Oscillating neutrinos in the early Universe.
We investigate the physics of an ensemble of oscillating neutrinos in the primordial plasma of the early Universe. The result is a coupled set of quantum kinetic equations both for the neutrino
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
