We present, both exactly and approximately, a complete set of mappings between the vacuum (or fundamental) leptonic mixing parameters and the effective ones in matter with non-standard neutrino interaction (NSI) effects included. Within the three-flavor neutrino framework and a constant matter density profile, a full set of sum rules is established, which enables us to reconstruct the moduli of the effective leptonic mixing matrix elements, in terms of the vacuum mixing parameters in order to reproduce the neutrino oscillation probabilities for future long-baseline experiments. Very compact, but quite accurate, approximate mappings are obtained based on series expansions in the neutrino mass hierarchy parameter eta equivalent to Delta m(21)(2)/Delta m(31)(2), the vacuum leptonic mixing parameter s(13) equivalent to sin theta(13), and the NSI parameters epsilon(alpha beta). A detailed numerical analysis about how the NSIs affect the smallest leptonic mixing angle theta(13), the deviation of the leptonic mixing angle theta(23) from its maximal mixing value, and the transition probabilities useful for future experiments are performed using our analytical results.
