Title: Neutrino mass and spontaneous parity nonconservation

Abstract

In weak-interaction models with spontaneous parity nonconservation, based on the gauge group SU(2)/sub L/ x SU(2)/sub R/ x U(1), we obtain the following formula for the neutrino mass: m..nu../sub e/ approx. = m/sub e/ /sup 2//gmW-italic/sub R/, where W/sub R/ is the gauge boson which mediates right-handed weak interactions. This formula, valid for each lepton generation, relates the near maximality of observed parity nonconservation at low energies to the smallness of neutrino masses.
