Title: One-loop renormalization group equations of the neutrino mass matrix in the triplet seesaw model

Abstract

Within the framework of the standard model plus one heavy Higgs triplet, we derive a full set of one-loop renormalization group equations of the neutrino mass matrix and Higgs couplings in both full and effective theories. The explicit RGEs of neutrino masses, flavor mixing angles and CP-violating phases are also obtained, and their nontrivial running behaviors around the Higgs triplet mass threshold are numerically illustrated.

  • We perform a detailed study of the renormalization group equations in the inverse seesaw model. Especially, we derive compact analytical formulas for the running of the neutrino parameters in the standard model and the minimal supersymmetric standard model, and illustrate that, due to large Yukawa coupling corrections, significant running effects on the leptonic mixing angles can be naturally obtained in the proximity of the electroweak scale, perhaps even within the reach of the LHC. In general, if the mass spectrum of the light neutrinos is nearly degenerate, the running effects are enhanced to experimentally accessible levels, well suitable for themore » investigation of the underlying dynamics behind the neutrino mass generation and the lepton flavor structure. In addition, the effects of the seesaw thresholds are discussed, and a brief comparison to other seesaw models is carried out.« less
  • Neutrino mass patterns and mixing have been studied in the context of the next-to-minimal supersymmetric standard model (NMSSM) with three gauge singlet neutrino superfields. We consider the case with the assumption of R-parity conservation. The vacuum expectation value of the singlet scalar field S of NMSSM induces the Majorana masses for the right-handed neutrinos as well as the usual {mu} term. The contributions to the light neutrino mass matrix at the tree level as well as one-loop level are considered, consistent with the tribimaximal pattern of neutrino mixing. Light neutrino masses arise at the tree level through a TeV-scale seesawmore » mechanism involving the right-handed neutrinos. Although all the three light neutrinos acquire nonzero masses at the tree level, we show that the one-loop contributions can be comparable in size under certain conditions. Possible signatures to probe this model at the LHC and its distinguishing features compared to other models of neutrino mass generation are briefly discussed.« less
  • In this paper we present the renormalization group equations to one-loop order for all the parameters of two supersymmetric left-right theories that are softly broken. Both models are based upon the gauge group SU(3){sup c}xSU(2){sub L}xSU(2){sub R}xU(1){sub B-L} and both contain an arbitrary number of bidoublets as well as singlets; however, one model uses doublets to break SU(2){sub R} and the other uses triplets.
  • We study the effect of the fourth-generation quarks on the lighter-generation quarks. We take the Fritzsch form for the Yukawa couplings with the simple phases conjectured by Shin at the grand unified scale, and investigate three cases: the one-Higgs-doublet model, the two-Higgs-doublet model, and the supersymmetric model for the Higgs sector. We calculate the evolution of mixing among the second-generation quark, the third one, and the fourth one by use of the renormalization-group equations, and then obtain rather large mixings at the electroweak scale. Furthermore, we study the effect of these mixings on the B/sub s//sup 0/-B-bar/sub s//sup 0/ system.
  • We analyze the renormalization group structure of a radiative neutrino mass model consisting of a singly charged and a doubly charged scalar fields. Small Majorana neutrino masses are generated by the exchange of these scalars via two-loop diagrams. We derive boundedness conditions for the Higgs potential and show how they can be satisfied to energies up to the Planck scale. Combining boundedness and perturbativity constraints with neutrino oscillation phenomenology, new limits on the masses and couplings of the charged scalars are derived. These in turn lead to lower limits on the branching ratios for certain lepton flavor violating (LFV) processesmore » such as μ→eγ, μ→3e and μ – e conversion in nuclei. Improved LFV measurements could test the model, especially in the case of inverted neutrino mass hierarchy where these are more prominent.« less
