# Sterile neutrino dark matter in a U(1) extension of the standard model

@article{Iwamoto2021SterileND, title={Sterile neutrino dark matter in a U(1) extension of the standard model}, author={Sho Iwamoto and K'aroly Seller and Zolt'an Tr'ocs'anyi}, journal={Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics}, year={2021}, volume={2022} }

We explore the parameter space of a U(1) extension of the standard model — also called the super-weak model — from the point of view of explaining the observed dark matter energy density in the Universe. The new particle spectrum contains a complex scalar singlet and three right-handed neutrinos, among which the lightest one is the dark matter candidate. We explore both freeze-in and freeze-out mechanisms of dark matter production. In both cases, we find regions in the plane of the super-weak…
