dc.description.abstractThe existence of flavor-mixed particles is well established. We discuss the dynamics of a stable particle with flavor mixing scattering off of a weak potential. We demonstrate that conversion from one mass state to another is possible through scattering and calculate the associated differential cross sections. The mass conversion is not analogous to flavor oscillations or particle decay. The implications of mass conversion, in general, and with respect to flavor-mixed dark matter and the cosmic neutrino background is discussed.
