Scalar-mediated double beta decay and LHC

A bstractThe decay rate of neutrinoless double beta (0νββ) decay could be dominated by Lepton Number Violating (LNV) short-range diagrams involving only heavy scalar intermediate particles, known as

Left-right symmetry and lepton number violation at the Large Hadron electron Collider

A bstractWe show that the proposed Large Hadron electron Collider (LHeC) will provide an opportunity to search for left-right symmetry and establish lepton number violation, complementing current and

Neutrinoless double-beta decay at colliders: interference between Majorana states

: Heavy neutral leptons (HNLs) are hypothetical particles able to explain several puzzles of fundamental physics, first and foremost — neutrino oscillations. Being sterile with respect to Standard

Lepton Number Violation and the Baryon Asymmetry of the Universe

Neutrinoless double beta decay, lepton number violating collider processes and the Baryon Asymmetry of the Universe (BAU) are intimately related. In particular, lepton number violating processes at

Neutrinoless double beta decay

We review the potential to probe new physics with neutrinoless double beta decay ( A , Z ) → ( A , Z + 2 ) + 2 e − . ?> Both the standard long-range light neutrino mechanism as well as non-standard

Lepton number violating phenomenology of d = 7 neutrino mass models

A bstractWe study the phenomenology of d = 7 1-loop neutrino mass models. All models in this particular class require the existence of several new SU(2)L multiplets, both scalar and fermionic, and

Constraining Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay Matrix Elements from Ab Initio Nuclear Theory

. As experimental searches for neutrinoless double-beta (0 νββ ) decay are entering a new generation, with hopes to completely probe the inverted mass hierarchy, the need for reliable nuclear matrix

An electroweak basis for neutrinoless double β decay

A bstractA discovery of neutrinoless double-β decay would be profound, providing the first direct experimental evidence of ΔL = 2 lepton number violating processes. While a natural explanation is

Lepton Number Violation: Seesaw Models and Their Collider Tests

The Majorana nature of neutrinos is strongly motivated from the theoretical and phenomenological point of view. A plethora of neutrino mass models, known collectively as Seesaw models, exist that
