Homework Help: Probability of Neutrino Transformations

  1. Oct 29, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I have a questions on Neutrino Oscillations, but i have no idea how to solve any of it... this is just one part...

    How do I show that the probability of a mu neutrino having transformed into a tau neutrino at a time t is:

    sin^2(2theta)sin^2[((difference in masses squared)c^4t0/(4pc(hbar))]

    I won't try to write down all the equations and matrices etc - but they're just the standard ones for unitary matrices!

    Sorry I couldn't be less vague! Also, I don't expect you to give me the answer, I've just like some kind of hint in the right direction... :-)

    Thanks a lot, Sam x
