We study neutrino flux evolution in an extreme astrophysical environment peculiar to supernovae accounting for the collective effects and effects of an arbitrarily moving and polarized media and a strong magnetic field. The effect of the transversally moving matter on the flavour and spin-flavour oscillations in a magnetic field was considered in [1-3]. In the present paper we further develop the quantum theory of neutrino flavour and spin-flavour oscillations in moving magnetized matter with a special focus on the possible effects of the transversal matter polarization. Both the cases of Dirac and Majorana neutrinos are considered. In addition, we also account for the superimposed effect of the collective neutrino oscillations and discuss possible spectral splits of the final neutrino fluxes that can arise due to flavour and spin-flavour oscillations in this case.
