Is Dark Matter Heavy Because of Electroweak Symmetry Breaking? Revisiting Heavy Neutrinos


A simple and well-motivated explanation for the origin of dark matter is that it consists of thermal relic particles that get their mass entirely through electroweak symmetry breaking. The simplest models implementing this possibility predict a dark matter candidate that consists of a mixture of two Dirac neutrinos with opposite isospin, and so has… (More)
