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 consistent with a TeV scale of left-right symmetry. In order to account for the correct relic density with such low scales, the thermal overproduction of the dark matter in the early universe is compensated by a sufficient late entropy production due to late decay of heavier right-handed neutrinos. We point… Expand

Low scale left-right symmetry and warm dark matter
We study the scenario which incorporates dark matter in the minimal left-right symmetric theory at the TeV scale. The only viable candidate is found to be the lightest right-handed neutrino with aExpand
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 theExpand
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 thatExpand

We investigate the possibility of keV scale thermal dark matter in a minimal gauged B − L extension of the standard model with three right-handed neutrinos in the context of cosmic inflation. TheExpand
Light sterile neutrino and dark matter in left-right symmetric models without a Higgs bidoublet
We present a class of left-right symmetric models where Dirac as well as Majorana mass terms of neutrinos can arise at one-loop level in a scotogenic fashion: with dark matter particles going insideExpand

Prospects of gravitational waves in the minimal left-right symmetric model
The left-right symmetric model (LRSM) is a well-motivated framework to restore parity and implement seesaw mechanisms for the tiny neutrino masses at or above the TeV-scale, and has a very richExpand


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 signExpand
Sterile neutrinos as dark matter.
This model is reexamine and it is found that hot, warm, and cold dark matter are all possibilities and the number density of sterile neutrinos is proportional to [mu][sup 2]/M so that the energy density today is independent of M, which is crucial in determining the large scale structure of the Universe.

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. TheExpand
