Neutrinos : from the r-process to the diffuse supernova neutrino background

Talk in parallel session Neutrino physics and astrophysics Discussion Panel Neutrinos 2


Maria Cristina Volpe (APC and CNRS)


Neutrinos play an important role in astrophysical and cosmological environments.
In this talk I will discuss recent progress in neutrino flavor evolution in dense media, including core-collapse supernovae and binary neutron star mergers remnants. I will remind decoherence effects in vacuum and then discuss neutrino decoherence and other effects due to strong gravitational fields, nearby compact objects. I will highlight the implications of these aspects and/or of non-standard physics on observations, in particular in relation with the r-process and the GW170817 event, and with the diffuse supernova neutrino background, whose detection is expected soon.
