Title: Fermionic dark matter and neutrino masses in a B - L model

Abstract

In this work we present a common framework for neutrino masses and dark matter. Specifically, we work with a local B - L extension of the standard model which has three right-handed neutrinos, n(Ri), and some extra scalars, Phi, phi(i), besides the standard model fields. The n(Ri)'s have nonstandard B - L quantum numbers and thus these couple to different scalars. This model has the attractive property that an almost automatic Z(2) symmetry acting only on a fermionic field, n(R3), is present. Taking advantage of this Z(2) symmetry, we study both the neutrino mass generation via a natural seesaw mechanism at low energy and the possibility of n(R3) being a dark matter candidate. For this last purpose, we study its relic abundance and its compatibility with the current direct detection experiments.
