MINOS at Neutel II

On the MINOS slides from Neutel 11 we have this gem of a preliminary report on atmospheric neutrinos and mirror neutrinos. Taking the quoted error bars seriously, the minimum possible $\Delta m^2$ for neutrinos is $2.47 \times 10^{-3}$ $\textrm{eV}^2$, whereas the maximum possible antineutrino $\Delta$ is $3.3 \times 10^{-3}$ $\textrm{eV}^2$. Although an apparent CPT violation is not yet visible in the atmospheric data, it is a pleasant experience to compare these figures with the Koide matrix predictions from last year.
