The research project “NU FEEDBACK: Probing Nonlinear Feedback Effects in Flavor Transformations of Neutrinos from Dense Astrophysical Sources” for exchange of researchers has been selected within the framework of the executive program of scientific cooperation between Italian Republic and the Republic of India for the years 2022-2024. The Italian coordinator is Prof. Alessandro Mirizzi (Bari Univ.) and the Indian Coordinator is Prof. Basudeb Dasgupta (Tata Institute for Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai). This project strengthens the long-standing collaboration existing between the Bari and Mumbai groups, focussed on central common interest in supernova neutrino physics, which has lead to the most productive and influential team in this subject internationally. The key idea of NU FEEDBACK project is to bring the current theory of nonlinear flavor oscillations in high-density astrophysical sources to a new level of understanding, by means of advanced numerical and analytical techniques. The proposed mobility plan would allow the involved researchers to strengthen the position of either groups in this fast-developing area and keep the leadership in this very competitive field.
