Neutrino Oscillations with Three Active and Three Sterile Neutrinos



This is an extension of estimates of the probability of μ to e neutrino oscillation with one sterile neutrino to three sterile neutrinos, using a 6x6 matrix. Since the mixing angle for only one sterile neutrino has been experimentally determined, we estimate the μ to e neutrino oscillation probability with different mixing angles for two of the sterile neutrinos.

This work was carried out while LSK was a visitor at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Group P25. The author thanks Dr. William Louis for information about recent and future neutrino oscillation experiments, and Dr. Terrance Goldman for advice on the mixing angles.
