Abstract

We analyze the prospects of a feasible, Brookhaven National Laboratory based, very long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment consisting of a conventional horn produced low energy wideband beam and a detector of 500 kton fiducial mass with modest requirements on event recognition and resolution. Such an experiment is intended primarily to determine [Formula Presented] violating effects in the neutrino sector for 3-generation mixing. We analyze the sensitivity of such an experiment. We conclude that this experiment will allow determination of the [Formula Presented] phase [Formula Presented] and the currently unknown mixing parameter [Formula Presented] if [Formula Presented] a value [Formula Presented] times lower than the present experimental upper limit. In addition to [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] the experiment has great potential for precise measurements of most other parameters in the neutrino mixing matrix including [Formula Presented] [Formula Presented] [Formula Presented] and the mass ordering of neutrinos through the observation of the matter effect in the [Formula Presented] appearance channel.
