Abstract

We demonstrate that sizable neutrino flavor oscillations can be generated in a model with large extra spacetime dimensions even if the physics on the brane is flavor-diagonal, the bulk neutrino theory is flavor-neutral, and the brane/bulk couplings are flavor-blind. This is thus a compact model for addressing neutrino flavor oscillations in higher dimensions. We also discuss several phenomenological aspects of the "bulk-mediated" neutrino oscillations inherent in this model, and show that this model contains some potentially important new phenomenological features in the limit of large brane/bulk coupling.
