Title: Constraints on three-neutrino mixing from atmospheric and reactor data

Abstract

Observations of atmospheric neutrinos are usually analyzed using the simplifying approximation that either {nu}{sub {mu}}{leftrightarrow}{nu}{sub {tau}} or {nu}{sub {ital e}}{leftrightarrow}{nu}{sub {mu}} two-flavor mixing is relevant. Here we instead consider the data using the simplifying approximation that only one neutrino mass scale is relevant. This approximation is the minimal three-flavor notation that includes the two relevant two-flavor approximations. The constraints in the parameter space orthogonal to the usual, two-flavor analyses are studied.
