A bstractWe study the evolution of neutrinos in a background matter moving with a linear acceleration. The Dirac equation for a massive neutrino electroweakly interacting with background fermions is obtained in a comoving frame where matter is at rest. We solve this Dirac equation for ultrarelativistic neutrinos. The neutrino quantum states in matter moving with a linear acceleration are obtained. We demonstrate that the neutrino electroweak interaction with an accelerated matter leads to the…

Neutrino spin oscillations in external fields in curved spacetime
We study spin oscillations of massive Dirac neutrinos in background matter, electromagnetic and gravitational fields. First, using the Dirac equation for a neutrino interacting with the external


Neutrino interaction with matter in a noninertial frame
A bstractWe study the system of massive and mixed neutrinos interacting with background matter moving with an acceleration. We start with the derivation of the Dirac equation for a single neutrino in
Flavor neutrino oscillations in matter moving with acceleration
A short review on studies of neutrino flavor oscillations in moving with a constant speed matter is presented. Then neutrino flavor oscillations in matter moving with acceleration are considered. We
Neutrino spin oscillations in matter under the influence of gravitational and electromagnetic fields
We derive the new quasi-classical equation for the description of the spin evolution of a neutrino propagating in a curved space-time and interacting with a background matter and an external
Creation of Dirac neutrinos in a dense medium with a time-dependent effective potential
We consider Dirac neutrinos interacting with background fermions in the frame of the standard model. We demonstrate that a time-dependent effective potential is quite possible in a protoneutron star
Neutrino Oscillations in Matter
Nonzero neutrino masses would provide new, unique information on particle physics beyond the standard model. Neutrino flavor oscillations provide the most sensitive method for directly testing for
Solar Neutrinos: Status and Prospects
The Sun is an ideal laboratory for the study of fundamental neutrino properties, as well as neutrinos are unique messengers from the solar core. Over the last forty years, the study of solar
Detecting non-relativistic cosmic neutrinos by capture on tritium: phenomenology and physics potential
We study the physics potential of the detection of the Cosmic Neutrino Back- ground via neutrino capture on tritium, taking the proposed PTOLEMY experiment as a case study. With the projected energy
Neutrino self-energy and pair creation in neutron stars
Massless neutrino exchange leads to a new long-range force between matter. Recently, it was claimed both that the potential energy due to this interaction i) dominates the total energy of neutron
