The Incredible Foresight of

ETTORE MAJORANA

Haim Harari

Erice, September 1, 2006

Neutrino Masses, Leptogenesis and Beyond


The foresight

The Foresight

Can you tell a

neutrinofrom an anti-neutrino?

MAJORANA

n may be its own antiparticle !


Neutrino masses leptogenesis and beyond

Is nMassless or Very Light?

“Direct” experiments m (ne) < few eV

Theory

No good reason for massless n.

Simple argument for very light n.

n is the only “chargeless” particle.

All quarks and leptons  “Dirac Mass”

n also “Majorana Mass”

Neutrino masses leptogenesis and beyond

Why are we here?

B-Violation (also L-Violation)

CP-Violation

Non-equilibrium (also no “wash-out”)

Sakharov-1967

B-Violation (and L-Violation)

p-decay

GUT scale or higher

Not seen (but SN87A!)

n-oscillations and mass

CP-Violation

KM phase for quarks (requires 3 generations)

CP-violation in leptons (requires 2 generations)

WHEN AND HOW DID IT HAPPEN?


Neutrino masses leptogenesis and beyond

Why are we here?

At Big Bang: B=0 , L=0 (also B-L=0)

We need to create a nonzeroB (also B-L?)

“Leptogenesis”(other theories: GUT, electroweak) :

If we could create a nonzero L

and then trade B for L,

we could create a positive B.

IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO TRADE B for L

WE MUST ALSO CREATE B-L


Neutrino masses leptogenesis and beyond

B – L is conserved (and must be nonzero)

B + L is violatede.g. D(B + L) = 6 is allowed

B and L violation in the standard model (but no B-L)

(qiqjqk) (qiqjqk) (qiqjqk) (ℓiℓjℓk)

“instanton” terms:

i,j,k = generations

“SPHALERON”: Connecting degenerate ground states

L and B can change (together)

each by 3 UNITS (for Ng =3)

THE STANDARD MODEL CREATES (together) B AND L

Seesaw mechanism:

Hence: n is a Majorana neutrino

<nn> ≠ 0, n-nmixing, heavy neutrino with mass M

L=0 AT BIG BANG

BUT DL ≠ 0 PROCESSES ARE ABUNDANT !

The universe is made of

QUARKS and LEPTONS

n


Neutrino masses leptogenesis and beyond

The particle, which is its own antiparticle,

is responsible for having

more particles than antiparticles in the universe

LEPTOGENESIS

At BigBang: B = L = 0.

Majorana: DL≠0 and D(B-L)≠0are allowed.

Hence, the universe has L≠0 and B-L≠ 0 .

LEADING TO B≠0 !!!

(Elaborate quantitative estimates).

And in 2056 – for Majorana’s 150th birthday

.

Perhaps it all happens

at the subparticle level !?

Warning

No evidence for

subquarks and subleptons.

No reasonable dynamical theory


Neutrino masses leptogenesis and beyond

Why q and ℓhave simple charge ratios?

( +2/3, -1/3 )

(0, -1)

The Quark - Lepton Connection

Why p and e+ have same charge?

Why SQi = 0 for q’s and ℓ’s in one generation?

[ SQi = (-1) + (0) + 3(+2/3) +3(-1/3) = 0 ]

Why three colors and three generations?
