Title: Dark Gauge U(1) symmetry for an alternative left–right model

Abstract

An alternative left–right model of quarks and lep-tons, where the SU(2)R lepton doublet (ν, l)R is replaced with (n, l)R so that nR is not the Dirac mass partner of νL, has been known since 1987. Previous versions assumed a global U(1)S symmetry to allow n to be identified as a dark-matter fermion. We propose here a gauge extension by the addition of extra fermions to render the model free of gauge anomalies, and just one singlet scalar to break U(1)S.This results in two layers of dark matter, one hidden behind the other.
