If neutrino oscillations do occur, will they violate conservation of the various lepton family numbers and Will neutrino oscillations violate conservation of the total number of leptons?

To determine

Whether the neutrino oscillations will violate various lepton family numbers conservation or not. Also, determine whether the neutrino oscillations will violate total number of leptons conservation or not.


The lepton family numbers are Le,Lμ,Lτ . Lepton number conservation means total number of leptons will remains same before and after the interactions. Let's take the example of decay of muon caused by the oscillation changes, in which an electron or positron is released. The total number of lepton remains conserved but the individual lepton family numbers conservation is not possible
