Neutrinos -- Mass, Stopping power (Nuclear physics), Weak interactions (Nuclear physics)
A formula for the stopping power of matter for neutrinos and antineutrinos, interacting with electrons via the weak interaction in the context of both the V-A theory and the Weinberg theory is derived in the high-Q approximation and applied to study the solar-neutrino anomaly. The result shows that neutrinos extending in energy from 1 to 10 MeV produced inside the Sun escape it essentially without any loss of energy. In agreement with previous investigators, Rustgi, Leung, Turner, and Brandt (1981). It is found that the neutrinos should retain the energy given them at their creation essentially forever and permeate the Universe uniformly rather than cluster around galaxies.
