Neutrinos from GUTs down to low energies

chaired by Claudia Hagedorn (TUM), Davide Meloni (Roma Tre), Emiliano Molinaro (CP3-Origins), Tommy Ohlsson (KTH Stockholm), Michael Andreas Schmidt (The University of Sydney)
from to (Europe/Berlin)
at MIAPP building ( seminar room )
MIAPP, Boltzmannstraße 2, 85748 Garching, Germany
Description The scope of this three-days meeting is to bring together experts in different aspects
of neutrino mass generation mechanisms.

In particular, we will discuss the following topics:
-various types of neutrino mass generation mechanisms
-challenges to implement these in unified models with flavor (and CP) symmetries
-relations between theory at high and low energies
-possible signals of different neutrino mass generation mechanisms, like charged lepton flavor violating processes, direct production of new particles at colliders, neutrinoless double beta decay and dark matter
-mechanisms for explaining the baryon asymmetry of the Universe in such models

There will be five talks (30'+15' each) scheduled in the morning and plenty of time for discussions in the afternoon and evening.

The meeting will take place at the MIAPP building.

      Avelino Vicente has kindly agreed to give an introduction to SARAH and FlavorKit. In case you are interested just come to the seminar room.
      Here is the plan of the session (ca. 2 hours):
      1) How to implement a model in SARAH
      2) How to use SARAH to obtain basic information about the model (mass matrices, vertices...)
      3) How to use SARAH to create a numerical code for the model
      4) How to compute flavor observables with SARAH+FlavorKit: numerical and analytical results
      It is a hands-on session. So, if you wish to fully participate please download the following files (see 'more information') and install them on your laptop:
      - Scotogenic.tar.gz : Implementation of the Scotogenic model in SARAH
      - run_sarah_Scotogenic.nb : A Mathematica notebook with the commands we will run
      - SARAH-4.5.8.tar.gz : Official SARAH code (version 4.5.8)
      - SPheno-3.3.6.tar.gz : Official SPheno code (version 3.3.6) 
      Required programs: Mathematica, a fortran 90 compiler and a LaTeX compiler.
