Title: Flavor coupled with chiral oscillations in the presence of an external magnetic field
Author: Bernardini, AE
Abstract: Reporting to the Dirac wave-packet prescription where it is formally assumed the fermionic nature of the particles, we shall demonstrate that chiral oscillations implicitly aggregated to the interference between positive and negative frequency components of mass eigenstate wave-packets introduce some small modifications to the standard neutrino flavor conversion formula. Assuming the corresponding spinorial solutions of a `modified' Dirac equation, we are specifically interested in quantifying flavor coupled with chiral oscillations for a fermionic Dirac-type particle (neutrino) non-minimally coupling with an external magnetic field B. The viability of the intermediate wave-packet treatment becomes clear when we assume B orthogonal/parallel to the direction of the propagating particle.
