We show that left-right symmetric models can easily accommodate stable TeV-scale dark matter particles without the need for an ad hoc stabilizing symmetry. The stability of a newly introduced multiplet either arises accidentally as in the minimal dark matter framework or comes courtesy of the remaining unbroken Z_{2} subgroup of B-L. Only one new parameter is introduced: the mass of the new multiplet. As minimal examples, we study left-right fermion triplets and quintuplets and show that they…

Phenomenology of left-right symmetric dark matter

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

Mixed dark matter in left-right symmetric models

Motivated by the recently reported diboson and dijet excesses in Run 1 data at ATLAS and CMS, we explore models of mixed dark matter in left-right symmetric theories. In this study, we calculate the

Vacuum structure of the left-right symmetric model

A bstractThe left-right symmetric model (LRSM), originally proposed to explain parity violation in low energy processes, has since emerged as an attractive framework for light neutrino masses via the

Left-Right Symmetric Model without Higgs Triplets

We develop a minimal left-right symmetric model based on the gauge group SU(3)C⊗SU(2)L⊗SU(2)R⊗U(1)B−L wherein the Higgs triplets conventionally employed for symmetry breaking are replaced by Higgs

Majorana fermion dark matter in minimally extended left-right symmetric model

Abstract We present a minimal extension of the left-right symmetric model based on the gauge group SU(3)c× SU(2)L× SU(2)R× U(1)B−L× U(1)X, in which a vector-like fermion pair (ζL and ζR) charged

SO(10) paths to dark matter

The grand-unification gauge group SO(10) contains matter parity as a discrete subgroup. This symmetry could be at the origin of dark matter stability. The properties of the dark matter candidates

Warm dark matter in low scale left-right theory

We investigate the viability of having dark matter in the minimal left-right symmetric theory. We find the lightest right-handed neutrino with a mass around keV as the only viable candidate

Wino-like Minimal Dark Matter and future colliders

We extend the Standard Model with an EW fermion triplet, stable thanks to one of the accidental symmetries already present in the theory. On top of being a potential Dark Matter candidate, additional

Minimal Dark Matter (MDM) stands as one of the simplest dark matter scenarios. In MDM models, annihilation and co-annihilation processes among the members of the MDM multiplet are usually very

keV sterile neutrino dark matter in gauge extensions of the standard model

It is known, that a keV scale sterile neutrino is a good warm dark matter candidate. We study how this possibility could be realized in the context of gauge extensions of the standard model. The
