    Models of Neutrino Masses and Mixing

    Full text link
    Neutrino physics has entered an era of precision measurements. With these precise measurements, we may be able to distinguish different models that have been constructed to explain the small neutrino masses and the large mixing among them. In this talk, I review some of the existing theoretical models and their predictions for neutrino oscillations.Comment: Talk presented at the 2nd International Colliders to Cosmic Rays Conference (C2CR07), Lake Tahoe, CA, February 25 - March 1, 2007; 8 pages; 2 figure

    Lepton Flavor Violating Decays, Soft Leptogenesis and SUSY SO(10)

    Full text link
    We investigate lepton flavor violating decays in a SUSY SO(10) model with symmetric textures recently constructed by us. Unlike the models with lop-sided textures which give rise to a large decay rate for mu -> e gamma, the decay rate we get is much suppressed and yet it is large enough to be accessible to the next generation of experiments. We have also investigated the possibility of baryogenesis resulting from soft leptogenesis. We find that with the soft SUSY masses assuming their natural values, B^\prime \equiv \sqrt{BM_{1}} ~ 1.4 TeV and Im(A) ~ 1 TeV, the observed baryon asymmetry in the Universe can be accommodated in our model. We have also updated the predictions of our model for the masses, mixing angles and CP violating measures in both charged fermion and neutrino sectors, using the most up-to-date experimental data as input.Comment: RevTeX, 22 pages, 9 figures; v2: references added, version to appear in Phys.
