Different Mixing Scenerio of Quasi-Degenerate Neutrino with Charged Lepton Correction


Theoretically, in order to achieve non-zero θ13 a little deviation from Tribimaximal Mixing (TBM) pattern is needed, especially on θ13 without perturbing the atmospheric and solar mixing angles. In this work we computed the neutrino mixing angles by disturbing the θ13 as well as θ12 in Bimaximal (BM) and Hexagonal mixing (HM) using non-diagonal charged lepton mass. Considering the standard form of mass texture which satisfies TBM we have shown the quasi-degenerate nature of neutrino. This quasi degenerate type of mass matrix for BM and HM is then used to calculate the deviated mixing pattern which are consistent with recent neutrino oscillation data.
