Title: Nonmaximal neutrino mixing at NO νA from nonstandard interactions

Abstract

Here, muon neutrino disappearance measurements at NOν A suggest that maximal θ 23 is excluded at the 2.6σ CL. This is in mild tension with T2K data which prefer maximal mixing. Considering that NO νA has a much longer baseline than T2K, we point out that the apparent departure from maximal mixing in NO νA may be a consequence of nonstandard neutrino propagation in matter.
