CP3-Origins starts new international collaboration

June 2, 2015

Along with the Excellence Cluster ‘Universe’ in Munich, University of Roma Tre, the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and the University of Sydney, CP3-Origins is starting a new international SEED Project funded by the Excellence Cluster ‘Universe’ in Munich.

Neutrino mass generation mechanisms in (grand) unified flavor models and phenomenological imprints

The Standard Model of Particle Physics is a great success. Yet, many issues remain open: the origin of neutrino masses, the explanation of fermion mass and mixing patterns, gauge coupling unification, the production of the baryon asymmetry of the Universe and the nature of Dark Matter. Within this SEED Project funded by the Excellence Cluster ‘Universe’ we will start a collaboration among five different research groups on the construction of unified flavor theories with different neutrino mass generation mechanisms and on their phenomenological imprints ranging from new particles at LHC, rare decays, leptogenesis to Dark Matter. A workshop is planned from 23 to 27 of November in Munich with the scope to present the new collaboration and its first results, amplify interactions between theorists and experimentalists, and to start new collaborations with invited renowned scientists in this field.

The proposers of the project are:
Claudia Hagedorn (Excellence Cluster ‘Universe’, Munich)
Davide Meloni (University of Roma Tre)
Emiliano Molinaro (CP3-Origins, Odense)
Tommy Ohlsson (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm)
Michael A. Schmidt (University of Sydney)
