Mirror left-right symmetry

By Pei-Hong Gu


We propose a novel SU(3)_c\times SU(2)_L\times SU(2)_R\times U(1)_{B-L} left-right symmetric model where the standard model fermion and Higgs fields are SU(2)_L doublets or SU(2) singlets while their mirror partners are SU(2)_R doublets or SU(2) singlets. The scalar fields also include a real singlet for dark matter and two SU(2) triplets for seesaw. The mixing between the standard model and mirror fermions is forbidden by a Z_2\times Z'_2 discrete symmetry. The mirror charged fermions can decay into their standard model partners with the dark-matter scalar while the mirror neutrinos can decay into the mirror charged fermions through the right-handed gauge interactions. Our model can have new implications on the strong CP problem, leptogenesis, collider phenomenology and dark matter detection.Comment: 6 pages, 3 figures. One figure and some references are adde
