Calculation of oscillation probabilities of atmospheric neutrinos using nuCraft
Abstract
NuCraft (nucraft.hepforge.org) is an opensource Python project that calculates neutrino oscillation probabilities for neutrinos from cosmicray interactions in the atmosphere for their propagation through Earth. The solution is obtained by numerically solving the Schrödinger equation. The code supports arbitrary numbers of neutrino flavors including additional sterile neutrinos, CP violation, arbitrary mass hierarchies, matter effects with a configurable continuous Earth model, and takes into account the production height distribution of neutrinos in the Earth's atmosphere.
