We present simple algorithmic Feynman rules for fermion-number-violating interactions. They do not involve explicit charge-conjugation matrices and resemble closely the familiar rules for Dirac fermions. We insist on a fermion flow through the graphs along fermion lines and get the correct relative signs between different interfering Feynman graphs as in the case of Dirac fermions. We only need the familiar Dirac propagator and fewer vertices than in the usual treatment of fermion-number… Expand
Dirac and Majorana Feynman Rules with four-fermions
A compact method for amplitude calculations in theories with Dirac and Majorana effective operators is discussed. Using the renormalizable formalism of Denner et al., [1,2] for propagators, verticesExpand
Majoranized Feynman rules
We point out that the compact Feynman rules for Majorana fermions proposed by Denner et al. are in fact a convention for the complex phases of (anti)spinors, valid for both Majorana and DiracExpand
Selection rules for the decay of a particle into two identical massless particles of any spin
The well-known Landau-Yang (LY) theorem on the decay of a neutral particle into two photons is generalized for analyzing the decay of a neutral or charged particle into two identical masslessExpand

Neutrino mass matrix running for non-degenerate see-saw scales
We consider the running of the neutrino mass matrix in the Standard Model and the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model, extended by heavy singlet Majorana neutrinos. Unlike previous studies, we doExpand

The complete set of Feynman rules for the rational part R of QCD corrections in the MSSM are calculated at the one-loop level, which can be very useful in the nextto-leading order calculations inExpand
Renormalization Group Evolution of the Non-Unitary operator
Abstract Integrating out a heavy field gives rise to effective Lagrangian containing higher-dimensional operators. In the context of Type-I seesaw mechanism, integrating out the heavy right-handedExpand

Leptoproduction of supersymmetric particles
Abstract We study the production of scalar leptons ( l ) , scalar quarks ( q ) and gluinos ( g ) in ep → ν X , and ep → e X and the associated production of q and g in ep → eX and ep → νX. We findExpand

Abstract In this paper we survey methods by which supersymmetry (or other new physics) could be observed in experiments at present and future accelerators. We review some of the motivation forExpand
