VIRTUAL MEETING ONLY: Neutrino Seminar Series – Hints and Tests of a Dark Seesaw: MiniBooNE, the Muon (g−2), and Meson Decays

  • March 11, 2021, 1:00 pm US/Central

Presented by Matheus Hostert

Abstract:
Neutrino detectors, precision measurements, and kaon factories provide a lamppost in the search of dark sectors. Despite lacking conclusive evidence, some of these experiments continue to puzzle us with a series of anomalous measurements, including MiniBooNE and the latest measurement of the muon (g-2). In this talk, I will provide a new physics explanation to these anomalies within a “dark seesaw” model, which, if true, would also shed light on the origin of neutrino masses. These models are highly testable and predict unique new signatures in neutrino, kaon, and e+e- collider experiments due to the presence of short-lived heavy neutral leptons.
