In this work, we derive a quantum information theoretic quantity similar to the Leggett-Garg inequality, which can be defined in terms of neutrino transition probabilities. For the case of νμ→νe/ν¯μ→ν¯e transitions, this quantity is sensitive to CP violating effects as well as the neutrino mass-hierarchy, namely which neutrino mass eigenstate is heavier than the other ones. The violation of the inequality for this quantity shows an interesting dependence on mass-hierarchy. For normal (inverted) mass-hierarchy, it is significant for νμ→νe (ν¯μ→ν¯e) transitions. This is applied to the two ongoing accelerator experiments T2K and NOνA as well as the future experiment DUNE. © 2019 The Author(s)
