Title: Baryogenesis via left-right asymmetry generation by the Affleck-Dine mechanism in a Dirac neutrino model

Abstract

A baryogenesis scenario in supersymmetric standard models with Dirac neutrinos proposed by Abel and Page is reconsidered, introducing intermediate scale physics to stabilize the runaway potential along a right-handed sneutrino direction. Contrary to previous results, the baryon number asymmetry can be explained even for higher reheating temperature without entropy production if the lightest neutrino mass is small and/or thermal effects induce early oscillation. We also discuss the solution to the problem of dark matter overproduction from the right-handed sneutrino decay by SU(2){sub R} gauge interaction.

  • Low-scale supersymmetry breaking in string motivated theories implies the presence of O(100 TeV) scale moduli, which generically lead to a significant modification of the history of the universe prior to Big Bang Nucleosynthesis. Such an approach implies a non-thermal origin for dark matter resulting from scalar decay, where the lightest supersymmetric particle can account for the observed dark matter relic density. We study the further effect of the decay on the baryon asymmetry of the universe, and find that this can satisfactorily address the problem of the over-production of the baryon asymmetry by the Affleck-Dine mechanism in the MSSM. Remarkably,more » there is a natural connection between the baryon and dark matter abundances today, which leads to a solution of the 'Cosmic Coincidence Problem'.« less
  • We study the possibility of generating tiny Dirac masses of neutrinos in Left-Right Symmetric Model (LRSM) without requiring the existence of any additional symmetries. The charged fermions acquire masses through a universal seesaw mechanism due to the presence of additional vector like fermions. The neutrinos acquire a one-loop Dirac mass from the same additional vector like charged leptons without requiring any additional discrete symmetries. The model can also be extended by an additional Z {sub 2} symmetry in order to have a scotogenic version of this scenario predicting a stable dark matter candidate. We show that the latest Planck uppermore » bound on the effective number of relativistic degrees of freedom N {sub eff}=3.15 ┬▒ 0.23 tightly constrains the right sector gauge boson masses to be heavier than 3.548 TeV . This bound on gauge boson mass also affects the allowed values of right scalar doublet dark matter mass from the requirement of satisfying the Planck bound on dark matter relic abundance. We also discuss the possible implications of such a scenario in charged lepton flavour violation and generating observable electric dipole moment of leptons.« less
  • The phenomenology of supersymmetric models of inflation, where the inflationary vacuum energy is dominated by {ital D} terms of a U(1), is investigated. Particular attention is paid to the questions of how to arrange for sufficient {ital e} folds of inflation to occur, what kind of thermal history is expected after the end of inflation, and how to implement successful baryogenesis. Such models are argued to require a more restrictive symmetry structure than previously thought. In particular, it is nontrivial that the decays of the fields driving {ital D} inflation can reheat the Universe in such a way as tomore » avoid the strong gravitino production constraints. We also show how the initial conditions for Affleck-Dine baryogenesis can arise in these models and that the simplest flat directions along which a baryon number is generated can often be ruled out by the constraints coming from a decoherence of the condensate in a hot environment. At the end, we find that successful reheating and baryogenesis can take place in a large subset of {ital D}-inflationary models. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}« less
  • We argue that an extension of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) that gives rise to viable thermal inflation, and so does not suffer from a Polonyi or moduli problem, should contain right-handed neutrinos which acquire their masses due to the vacuum expectation value of the flaton that drives thermal inflation. This strongly disfavors SO(10) grand unified theories. The {mu} term of the MSSM should also arise due to the VEV of the flaton. With the extra assumption that {ital m}{sup 2}{sub {ital L}}{minus}{ital m}{sub {ital H}{sub {ital u}}}{sup 2}{lt}0, but, of course, {ital m}{sup 2}{sub {ital L}}{minus}{ital m}{sub {italmore » H}{sub {ital u}}}{sup 2}+{vert_bar}{mu}{vert_bar}{sup 2}{gt}0, we show that a complicated Affleck-Dine-type baryogenesis employing an {ital LH}{sub {ital u}} {ital D}-flat direction can naturally generate the baryon asymmetry of the Universe. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}« less
  • We consider the possibility of a successful Affleck-Dine mechanism along the u{sup c}d{sup c}d{sup c} direction in {ital R}-parity symmetric extensions of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) which contain a gauge singlet superfield {phi}. Such gauge singlets commonly occur in extensions of the MSSM, for example, in models which seek to account for neutrino masses. We consider a two scalar Affleck-Dine mechanism, with the flat direction stabilized by a nonrenormalizible superpotential term of the form ({lambda}/M){phi}u{sup c}d{sup c}d{sup c}{approximately}({lambda}/M){phi}{psi}{sup 3}, where {psi} corresponds to the gauge nonsinglet flat direction. We give approximate solutions of the scalar field equations ofmore » motion which describe the evolution of the condensates and show that the final baryon asymmetry in this case is suppressed relative to that expected from the conventional single scalar Affleck-Dine mechanism, based on a superpotential term of the form ({lambda}/4M){psi}{sup 4}, by a factor [m{sub s}/(m{sub {phi}}+m{sub s})]{sup 1/2}, where m{sub s} is the soft supersymmetry-breaking scalar mass and {ital m}{sub {phi}} is the supersymmetric {phi} mass. It is possible for the model to generate a baryon asymmetry even in the limit of unbroken {ital B{minus}L}, so long as the gauge singlet condensate does not decay until after anomalous electroweak {ital B+L} violation is out of equilibrium following the electroweak phase transition. This condition is generally satisfied if all Dirac neutrino masses are less than around 10 keV. This class of Affleck-Dine models can, in principle, be experimentally ruled out, for example, by the observation of a Dirac mass for the {mu} or {tau} neutrino significantly larger than around 10 keV together with a mostly Higgsino LSP. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}« less
