I argue that LHC may shed light on the nature of neutrino mass through the probe of the seesaw mechanism. The smoking gun signature is lepton number violation through the production of same sign lepton pairs, a collider analogy of the neutrinoless double beta decay. I discuss this in the context of left–right symmetric theories, which led originally to neutrino mass and the seesaw mechanism. A WR gauge boson with a mass in a few TeV region could easily dominate neutrinoless double beta decay… Expand

Origin of Neutrino Mass
There are strong indications that charged fermions masses have origin in the Higgs mechanism. We review here attempts that provide the same source for neutrino mass. If one sticks to simpleExpand
Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay and Heavy Sterile Neutrinos
The experimental rate of neutrinoless double beta decay can be saturated by the exchange of virtual sterile neutrinos, that mix with the ordinary neutrinos and are heavier than 200 MeV.Expand

Left-Right Symmetric Theory with Light Sterile Neutrinos
A simple theoretical framework for the spontaneous breaking of parity, baryon and lepton numbers is proposed. In this context, the baryon and lepton numbers are independent local gauge symmetries,Expand
Stringent Dilepton Bounds on Left-Right Models using LHC data
Abstract In canonical left-right symmetric models the lower mass bounds on the charged gauge bosons are in the ballpark of 3–4 TeV, resulting in much stronger limits on the neutral gauge boson Z R ,Expand


Direct determination of neutrino mass parameters at future colliders
If the observed light neutrino masses are induced by their Yukawa couplings to singlet right-handed neutrinos, the natural smallness of those makes direct collider tests of the electroweak scaleExpand

Neutrino mass hierarchy and Majorana CP phases within the Higgs triplet model at the LHC
Neutrino masses may be generated by the VEV of an SU(2)L Higgs triplet. We assume that the doubly charged component of such a triplet has a mass in the range of several 100 GeV, such that it isExpand

LHC and the origin of neutrino mass
It is often said that neutrino mass is a window to a new physics beyond the standard model (SM). This is true if neutrinos are Majorana particles for the SM with Majorana neutrino mass is not aExpand
Large hadron collider probe of supersymmetric neutrinoless double-beta-decay mechanism.

LHC and B physics probes of neutrinoless double beta decay in supersymmetry without R-parity
