NEUTRINOS, LEPTON FLAVOR AND CP VIOLATION IN A PREDICTIVE SO (10) MODEL Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • A minimal supersymmetric SO(10) model with one 10 and one 126 Higgs superfield predict all neutrino mixings as well as the solar mass difference squared in agreement with observations. However, the CKM CP phase is constrained to be in the second or third quadrant requiring a significant non-CKM component to CP violation to explain observations. We revisit this issue using type I and II seesaw formula for neutrino masses show that the addition of a nonrenormalizable term restores compatibility with neutrino data and CKM CP violation in both cases. We further find that the MSSM parameter tan β ≥ 30 in the type I model and lepton flavor violation and lepton electric dipole moments are accessible to proposed experiments in both type I and type II models. We also discuss the unification of the gauge couplings in type I model which requires an intermediate scale. © World Scientific Publishing Company.
