Remarks to the standard scheme (theory) of neutrino oscillations. Corrected scheme of neutrino oscillations

Physics of Elementary Particles and Atomic Nuclei. Theory


In the standard theory of neutrino oscillations, it is supposed that physically observed neutrino states ν e , νμ, ντ, have no definite masses, that they are initially produced as a mixture of the ν1, ν2, ν3 neutrino states (i.e., they are produced as a wave packet), and that neutrino oscillations are the real ones. Then, this wave packet must decompose at a definite distance into constituent parts and neutrino oscillations must disappear. It was shown that these suppositions lead to violation of the law of energy and momentum conservation. An alternative scheme of neutrino oscillations obtained within the framework of particle physics has been considered, where the above mentioned shortcomings are absent, the oscillations of neutrinos with equal masses are the real ones, and the oscillations of neutrinos with different masses are the virtual ones. Expressions for probabilities of neutrino transitions (oscillations) in the alternative (corrected) scheme are given.
