We try to constrain the neutrino oscillation parameters by studying the MSW matter effect on supernova neutrinos. Using an implicit Lagrangian code for general relativistic spherical hydrodynamics (Yamada, 1997), we calculate the propagation of shock waves passing through the stellar envelopes over dozens of seconds, which is based on modeling the adiabatic collapse of iron core. We study how quantitatively the influence of the shock propagation appears in the deformation of neutrino energy spectrum. In addition, we are able to examine the θ13 dependence of time evolution of the neutrino detection rates at SK. Using our supernova model, we found that the MSW effect appears, at first, from low-energy region and moves toward high-energy region as the shock wave propagates. We find that the shock propagation has strong influence on the supernova neutrino oscillation through the evolution of density profile induced by the shock propagation.
