A neutrinophilic 2HDM as a UV completion for the inverse seesaw mechanism
Abstract
In Neutrinophilic Two Higgs Doublet Models, Dirac neutrino masses are obtained by forbidding a Majorana mass term for the righthanded neutrinos via a symmetry. We study a variation of such models in which that symmetry is taken to be a local U(1), leading naturally to the typical Lagrangian of the inverse seesaw scenario. Here, the presence of a new gauge boson and of an extended scalar sector result in a rich phenomenology, including modifications to Z, Higgs and kaon decays as well as to electroweak precision parameters, and a pseudoscalar associated to the breaking of lepton number.

Axion like particles and the inverse seesaw mechanism
Light pseudoscalars known as axion like particles (ALPs) may be behind physical phenomena like the Universe transparency to ultraenergetic photons, the soft ray excess from the Coma cluster, and the 3.5 keV line. We explore the connection of these particles with the inverse seesaw (ISS) mechanism for neutrino mass generation. We propose a very restrictive setting where the scalar field hosting the ALP is also responsible for generating the ISS mass scales through its vacuum expectation value on gravity induced nonrenormalizable operators. A discrete gauge symmetry protects the theory from the appearance of overly strong gravitational effects and discrete anomalymore » 
Radiative inverse seesaw mechanism for nonzero neutrino mass
If the canonical seesaw mechanism alone is responsible for neutrino mass, i.e. m{sub {nu}}{approx_equal}m{sub D}{sup 2}/m{sub N}, it would be difficult to prove at the TeV energy scale. A new verifiable mechanism of neutrino mass is proposed, using the inverse seesaw, with new physics at the TeV scale, such that m{sub {nu}}{approx_equal}m{sub D}{sup 2}{epsilon}{sub L}/m{sub N}{sup 2}, where {epsilon}{sub L} is a twoloop effect. Darkmatter candidates also appear naturally. 
Inverse tribimaximal typeIII seesaw mechanism and lepton flavor violation
We present a typeIII version of inverse seesaw or, equivalently an inverse version of typeIII seesaw. Naturally small neutrino masses arise at lowscale from the exchange of neutral fermions transforming as hyperchargeless SU(2) triplets. In order to implement tribimaximal lepton mixing we supplement the minimal SU(3)xSU(2)xU(1) gauge symmetry with an A{sub 4}based flavor symmetry. Our scenario induces lepton flavor violating (LFV) l{sub i}{yields}l{sub j}l{sub k}l{sub m} decays that can proceed at the tree level, while radiative l{sub i}{yields}l{sub j}{gamma} decays and mue conversion in nuclei are also expected to be sizeable. LFV decays are related by the underlying flavor symmetrymore » 
Inverse seesaw mechanism in noncommutative geometry
In this paper we will implement the inverse seesaw mechanism into the noncommutative framework on the basis of the AC extension of the standard model. The main difference from the classical AC model is the chiral nature of the AC fermions with respect to a U(1){sub X} extension of the standard model gauge group. It is this extension which allows us to couple the righthanded neutrinos via a gauge invariant mass term to lefthanded A particles. The natural scale of these gauge invariant masses is of the order of 10{sup 17} GeV while the Dirac masses of the neutrino andmore »
