# Fast neutrino flavor conversion as oscillations in a quartic potential

Basudeb Dasgupta, Manibrata Sen
Neutrinos in dense environments undergo collective pair conversions ${ν}_{e}{\overline{ν}}_{e}↔{ν}_{x}{\overline{ν}}_{x}$, where $x$ is a nonelectron flavor, due to forward scattering off each other that may be a crucial ingredient for supernova explosions. Depending on the flavor-dependent local an...
