# Lepton Number Violation with and without Majorana Neutrinos

@article{Heeck2015LeptonNV, title={Lepton Number Violation with and without Majorana Neutrinos}, author={Julian Heeck}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology}, year={2015} }

We discuss the various incarnations of a gauged B-L symmetry: 1) unbroken, it features Dirac neutrinos, neutrinogenesis to create the baryon asymmetry of our Universe, and a potentially light Z' boson; 2) broken by two units, we obtain the standard case of Majorana neutrinos, seesaw and thermal leptogenesis; 3) broken by four units, we find Dirac neutrinos with lepton-number-violating interactions, which can give rise to a new Dirac leptogenesis mechanism. We review and discuss the signatures…

The observation of a charged-lepton flavor violating process would be a definite sign for physics beyond the Standard Model, but would actually only prove that one particular linear combination of…

Planned CMB Stage IV experiments have the potential to measure the effective number of relativistic degrees of freedom in the early Universe, $N_\text{eff}$, with percent-level accuracy. This probes…

We present a detailed study of dark matter phenomenology in low-scale left-right symmetric models. Stability of new fermion or scalar multiplets is ensured by an accidental matter parity that…

We derive the spectra arising from non-relativistic dark matter annihilations or decays into intermediary particles with arbitrary spin, which subsequently produce neutrinos or photons via two-body…

It is shown that left-right symmetric models can easily accommodate stable TeV-scale dark matter particles without the need for an ad hoc stabilizing symmetry, and they can form viable two-component dark matter.
