# Baryon and Lepton Number as Local Gauge Symmetries

@inproceedings{Prez2010BaryonAL, title={Baryon and Lepton Number as Local Gauge Symmetries}, author={Pavel Fileviez P{\'e}rez and Mark B. Wise}, year={2010} }

We investigate a simple theory where Baryon number (B) and Le pton number (L) are local gauge symmetries. In this theory B and L are on the same footing and the anomalies re cancelled by adding a single new fermionic generation. There is an interesting realization of the sees aw mechanism for neutrino masses. Furthermore there is a natural suppression of flavour violation in the quark and leptonic sectors since the gauge symmetries and particle content forbid tree level flavor changing neutral… Expand
