We apply Bayesian methods to study the sensitivity to neutrino masses of a Galactic supernova neutrino signal. Our procedure makes use of the full statistics of events and is remarkably independent of astrophysical assumptions. Present detectors can reach a sensitivity down to $m_\nu \sim 1$ eV. Future megaton detectors can yield up to a factor of two improvement; however, they will not be competitive with the next generation of tritium $\beta$-decay and neutrinoless double $\beta$-decay… Expand

Measuring Neutrino Masses with Supernova Neutrinos
A new method to study the effects of neutrino masses on a supernova neutrino signal is proposed. The method relies exclusively on the analysis of the full statistics of neutrino events, it isExpand
Supernova neutrinos: Flavor-dependent fluxes and spectra
Transporting nu_mu and nu_tau in a supernova (SN) core involves several processes that have been neglected in traditional simulations. Based on a Monte Carlo study we find that the flavor-dependentExpand
