ULYSSES is a python package that calculates the baryon asymmetry produced from leptogenesis in the context of a type-I seesaw mechanism. The code solves the semi-classical Boltzmann equations for points in the model parameter space as specified by the user. We provide a selection of predefined Boltzmann equations as well as a plugin mechanism for externally provided models of leptogenesis. Furthermore, the ULYSSES code provides tools for multi-dimensional parameter space exploration. The… Expand

Five-zero texture in neutrino-dark matter model within the framework of minimal extended seesaw.
We study a model of neutrino and dark matter within the framework of a minimal extended seesaw. This model is based on $A_4$ flavour symmetry along with the discrete $Z_3\times Z_4$ symmetry toExpand
Aspects of High Scale Leptogenesis with Low-Energy Leptonic CP Violation
Using the density matrix equations (DME) for high scale leptogenesis based on the type I seesaw mechanism, in which the CP violation (CPV) is provided by the low-energy Dirac or/and Majorana phasesExpand
Resonant leptogenesis and TM$_1$ mixing in minimal Type-I seesaw model with S$_4$ symmetry
We present an S4 flavour symmetric model within a minimal seesaw framework resulting in mass matrices that leads to TM1 mixing. Minimal seesaw is realized by adding two right-handed neutrinos to theExpand


Flavor effects in leptogenesis
Flavor effects can have a significant impact on the final estimate of the lepton (and therefore baryon) asymmetry in scenarios of leptogenesis. It is therefore necessary to account fully for thisExpand
Three-flavored nonresonant leptogenesis at intermediate scales.
Leptogenesis can successfully explain the matter-antimatter asymmetry via out-of-equilibrium decays of heavy Majorana neutrinos in the early Universe. In this article, we focus on nonresonant thermalExpand
Spectator Effects during Leptogenesis in the Strong Washout Regime
By including spectator fields into the Boltzmann equations for Leptogenesis, we show that partially equilibrated spectator interactions can have a significant impact on the freeze-out value of theExpand
A cosmological pathway to testable leptogenesis
Leptogenesis could have occurred at temperatures much lower than generally thought, if the cosmological history of the Universe underwent a period of accelerated expansion, as is predicted forExpand
The importance of flavor in leptogenesis
We study leptogenesis from the out-of-equilibrium decays of the lightest heavy neutrino N1 in the medium (low) temperature regime, T1012 GeV (109 GeV), where the rates of processes mediated by the τExpand
Resonant enhancement in leptogenesis
Vanilla leptogenesis within the type I seesaw framework requires the mass scale of the right-handed neutrinos to be above 109 GeV. This lower bound can be avoided if at least two of the sterileExpand
Leptogenesis with heavy neutrino flavours: from density matrix to Boltzmann equations
Leptogenesis with heavy neutrino flavours is discussed within a density matrix formalism. We write the density matrix equation, describing the generation of the matter-antimatter asymmetry, for anExpand
Relativistic and spectator effects in leptogenesis with heavy sterile neutrinos
For leptogenesis with heavy sterile neutrinos above the electroweak scale, asymmetries produced at early times (in the relativistic regime) are relevant, if they are protected from washout. This canExpand
Lepton asymmetry rate from quantum field theory: NLO in the hierarchical limit
The rates for generating a matter-antimatter asymmetry in extensions of the Standard Model (SM) containing right-handed neutrinos are the most interesting and least trivial coefficients in the rateExpand
On leptogenesis, flavour effects and the low energy neutrino parameters
Contemporary physics is testing the boundaries of one of its existent paradigms, the Standard Model of Particle Physics. In recent years many attempts have been made in order to overcome theExpand
