Experiments have shown that transitions occur between electron neutrino, muon neutrino, and tau neutrino flavors. Some experiments indicate the possible existence of a fourth neutrino known as the sterile neutrino. The question arises: do all neutrino flavors participate in transitions between flavors? These transitions are viewed as mass state transitions in parametrized relativistic dynamics (PRD). PRD frameworks have been developed for neutrino flavor transitions associated with the mixing of two mass states or the mixing of three mass states. This paper presents an extension of the framework to neutrino flavor transitions associated with the mixing of four mass states. View Full-Text
