Abstract
We report on a search for flavor-changing neutral-currents (FCNC) in the pr oduction of heavy quarks in deep inelastic nu N-mu and <(<nu>)over bar>N-mu scattering by the NuTeV experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron. This measurem ent, made possible by the high-purity NuTeV sign-selected beams, probes for FCNC in heavy flavors at the quark level, and is uniquely sensitive to neu trino couplings of potential FCNC mediators. All searches are consistent wi th zero, and limits on the effective mixing strengths \V-uc\(2), \V-db\(2), and \V-sb\(2) are obtained.
