Fast Neutrino Flavor Conversion Modes in Multidimensional Core-collapse Supernova Models: the Role of the Asymmetric Neutrino Distributions

A dense neutrino gas, such as the one anticipated in the supernova environment, can experience fast neutrino flavor conversions on scales much shorter than those expected in vacuum probably provided that the angular distributions of $\nu_e$ and $\bar\nu_e$ cross each other. We perform a detailed investigation of the neutrino angular distributions obtained by solving the Boltzmann equations for fixed matter profiles of some representative snapshots during the post-bounce phase of core-collapse supernovae in multidimensional calculations of an $11.2\mathrm{M}_{\odot}$ and a $27\mathrm{M}_{\odot}$ progenitor models...
