Neutrinos and Higgs bosons in the left-right model

Ken Kiers

Large strides have been made in the past decade in the experimental understanding of neutrino masses and mixings, yet the incredible smallness of the neutrinos’ masses remains a theoretical puzzle. Theorists have long postulated that the solution to this puzzle could provide valuable clues to the structure of physics at very high energy scales. The left-right model of particle physics provides an intriguing solution to the puzzle through the so-called “seesaw mechanism.” The talk begins with an analysis of the Higgs sector of the model. A horizontal symmetry is employed in such a way that the symmetry scale can be kept relatively low – of order 10’s of TeV. The end of the talk returns to a phenomenological study of neutrinos in the left-right model.
