Poster P24: Theory of Neutrino Detection - Flavor Oscillationsand Weak Values


Yago P Porto Silva, PhD - Universidade Estadual de Campinas


We formulate neutrino oscillations using the theory of weak measurements (not the same as "weak interaction") with pre- and post-selection. It is well-known that the weak nature of neutrino detection allows the measurement of energy without collapse of the flavor wavefunction. Indeed, in this formalism, we can construct the flavor wavefunction in terms of the "weak value". Using the equation of motion of the flavor wavefunction we calculate the flavor oscillation probability.
