Abstract

Two of the four reported observations of neutrino bursts associated with supernova 1987A are consistent with each other and with the theoretical expectations of supernova neutrino luminosities. Testing a range of models for properties of the incident neutrino signal, together with calculation of interaction rates in the chlorine solar neutrino detector, helps to provide constraints on the mass and number of light neutrinos and raises the possibility of vacuum neutrino oscillations.
