Despite many tests, even the Minimal Manifest Left-Right Symmetric Model (MLRSM) has never been ultimately confirmed or falsified. LHC gives a new possibility to test directly the most conservative version of left-right symmetric models at so far not reachable energy scales. If we take into account precise limits on the model which come from low energy processes, like the muon decay, possible LHC signals are strongly limited through the correlations of parameters among heavy neutrinos, heavy gauge bosons and heavy Higgs particles. To illustrate the situation in the context of LHC, we consider the "golden" process . For instance, in a case of degenerate heavy neutrinos and heavy Higgs masses at 15 TeV (in agreement with FCNC bounds) we get fb at TeV which is consistent with muon decay data for a very limited masses in the range (3008 GeV, 3040 GeV). Without restrictions coming from the muon data, masses would be in the range (1.0 TeV, 3.5 TeV). Influence of heavy Higgs particles themselves on the considered LHC process is negligible (the same is true for the light, SM neutral Higgs scalar analog). In the paper decay modes of the right-handed heavy gauge bosons and heavy neutrinos are also discussed. Both scenarios with typical see-saw light-heavy neutrino mixings and the mixings which are independent of heavy neutrino masses are considered. In the second case heavy neutrino decays to the heavy charged gauge bosons not necessarily dominate over decay modes which include only light, SM-like particles.

1 Introduction

In general there are two ways in which non-standard models can be tested. In the first approach, Standard Model (discovered) processes or observables can be calculated very accurately by taking into account radiative corrections of the non-standard model. In the second approach we can look into completely new effects (new processes) which are not present in the Standard Model (SM) but exist in its extensions. Their detections would be a clear signal for the non-standard physics. Here radiative corrections beyond leading order are, at least at first approximation, not necessary.

At the LHC era it is interesting to think closer how these two approaches could be joined and how we can profit from this situation. It is not a common strategy, especially as Grand Unified Theories (GUT) are concerned. Here we calculate 1-loop radiative corrections at low energies consistently in the framework of the non-standard model (not only in its SM subset, this issue of consistency has been explored intensively in [1, 2, 3], see also [4, 5, 6]). In the next step we are looking into some specific non-standard process at LHC, taking into account obtained earlier precise low energy predictions for parameters of the model.

We consider left-right symmetric model based on the gauge group [7, 8] in its most restricted form, so-called Minimal Left-Right Symmetric Model (). We choose to explore the most popular version of the model with a Higgs representation with a bidoublet and two (left and right) triplets [9]. We also assume that the vacuum expectation value of the left-handed triplet vanishes, and the CP symmetry can be violated by complex phases in the quark and lepton mixing matrices. Left and right gauge couplings are chosen to be equal, . For reasons discussed in [1] and more extensively in [10], we discuss see-saw diagonal light-heavy neutrino mixings. It means that couples mainly to light neutrinos, while couples to the heavy ones. and turn out to couple to both of them [11, 12]. mixing is neglected here111As an interesting detail, the most stringent data comes from astrophysics through the supernova explosion analysis [13, 14], , typically [15]..

Taking such a restricted model, easier its parametrization and less extra parameters are involved in phenomenological studies. However, it does not mean that it is easier to confirm or falsify it, in fact, despite of many interesting studies and constraints, the model has not been ruled out so far (though many interesting questions and problems calling for consistency of the model have been arose [1, 2, 3]. PDG [15] gives TeV for standard couplings decaying to , recently the CMS collaboration established the generic bound [16]   TeV. Moreover, CMS published exclusion limits for LR model [17], they excluded large region in parameter space (, ) which extends up to TeV. Similarly, ATLAS collaboration gives exclusion limits on both and . They obtained that TeV for difference in mass of and larger than TeV [18] (for 34 ). The very last ATLAS analysis [19] based on the integrated luminosity of 2.1 pushed it even further, for some neutrino mass ranges it reaches already 2.3 TeV. These exclusion searches assume generally that , however in LR model the situation can be different i.e. . Let us note that data gives for the minimal LR model a strong theoretical limit, which is (at least) at the level of 2.5 TeV [20, 21].

In further studies we take then the rough limit for mass (to which the LHC analysis approaches quickly, and rather sooner than later will overcome it)


For heavy neutrino limit GeV [18], but it must be kept in mind that bounds on and are not independent from each other. Let us mention that simultaneous fit to low energy charge and neutral currents give GeV [15, 23].

Neutrinoless double beta decay allows for heavy neutrinos with relatively light masses, if Eq.(1.1) holds, for more detailed studies, see e.g. [21, 22].

Detailed studies which take into account potential signals with TeV at LHC conclude that heavy gauge bosons and neutrinos can be found with up to 4 and 1 TeV, respectively, for typical LR scenarios [24, 25, 26]. Anyway, such a relatively low (TeV) scale of the heavy sector is theoretically possible, even if GUT gauge unification is demanded, for a discussion, see e.g. [27] and [28].

As far as one loop corrections are concerned, there are not many papers devoted to the LR model. Apart from [1, 2, 3, 12] in which one of the authors of this paper has been involved (MLRSM model), there are other papers: [29] (limits on mass coming from the process (finite box diagrams, renormalization not required), [30] (LEP physics), [31] (process ). Some interesting results are included also in papers [32] where the problem of decoupling of heavy scalar particles in low energy processes has been discussed.

On the other hand, the LHC collider gives us a new opportunity to investigate LR models and to look for possible direct signals. Lately a few interesting papers analysed possible signals connected with the LR model [24, 26, 21, 33, 34, 35]. As we are looking for non-standard signals, we restrict here calculations at high energies to the first approximation (tree level).

In the next section we will discuss low energy limits on right sector of MLRSM which come from precise calculation of the muon decay. In section 3 some representative LR signals at LHC will be discussed, taking into account severe limits coming from the muon decay analysis. We end up with conclusions. We have decided to skip most of the details connected with definition of fields, interactions and parameters in the MLRSM. All these details can be found in [12] and [2] (especially the Appendix there).

2 One-loop low energy constraints on the right sector in MLRSM

Four-fermion interactions describe low energy processes in the limit , where is the transfer of four momentum and is the mass of the gauge boson involved in the interactions. This is an effective approximation of the fundamental gauge theory. This construction allows to replace the complete interaction by the point interaction with the effective coupling constant (which depends on the model). Independently, the model can be postulated with universal constant coupling (e.g. Fermi model with universal constant ). Next, taking into account the perturbation, corrections to so defined constants can be calculated at higher levels. Both effective and universal procedures describe the same process, so the corrections calculated in this way must be the same. This fact can be used to constrain parameters of the tested model.

In the SM, all radiative corrections are embedded in the term [15]


With the present values of the coupling constants and masses [15]


experimental fits to the parameter in SM give [15]222The error has decreased about 3 times during last decade or so, mostly due to improvements in boson mass measurement.


Matching for the muon decay and the structure of in the MLRSM model at the 1-loop level has been discussed in [2], see also [36] for more details on the matching in the context of SM.

In Fig.2.1 as function of for different masses of heavy Higgs particles and heavy neutrinos is shown. While plotting we have considered the variations of with respect to , as the heavy gauge boson masses are directly proportional to this parameter,

On the other hand, reaches non-perturbative region.

We can see, as expected in the framework of GUT models to which MLRSM belongs, that for given and there is a very narrow space for which are consistent with muon data (fine-tuning).

set B TeV TeV TeV TeV
Table 2.1: Set A. Values of for which various Higgs masses give in agreement with Eq.(2.3). The ranges of are achieved by varying heavy neutrino masses in the domain , see Eq.(2.7). For depicted by an asterisk in the last column, and corresponding for which , see the main text.
Set B. is fixed in addition, leaving as the only free MLRSM parameter the neutrino mass , see Fig.2.2. Values obtained for TeV do not fulfil direct LHC experimental search limits, the same is true for TeV if the limit Eq.(1.1) is applied.
Figure 2.2: Scheme for limited parameters in Table 2.1. is a fixed value of for which set B is defined with maximal value of degenerate heavy neutrino mass (in the perturbative region, ).
Figure 2.3: as function of for three different masses of heavy Higgs particles, 5 TeV, 10 TeV and 15 TeV. Cases (a) and (b) are different by the heavy neutrino mass spectrum. In the case (a) a mass of is fixed, GeV and masses of neutrinos vary with , Eq.(2.7). In the case (b) all neutrinos have masses which obey Eq.(2.7). For the solid lines with the neutrino cases (a) and (b) give the same predictions. Bold horizontal lines show the 3 C.L. constraint on , see Eq.(2.3).

Table 2.1 describes the situation more precisely. Set A shows ranges of which fit at 3 C.L. to Eq.(2.3) for varying heavy neutrino masses in the range , see Eq.(2.7). The upper limit of corresponds to neutrino masses with and , the lower limit of corresponds to and , see Fig.2.2. We can see that the heavy degenerate neutrinos can be relatively light having masses below 1 TeV. A minimal heavy neutrino mass for depicted with asterisk in the last column could be even smaller (if ). For instance, GeV ( TeV) and muon data in the range restricts allowed heavy neutrino masses to the region [in GeV] (it means that ). Set B describes a range of which fits at 3 C.L. to Eq.(2.3) where in addition also is fixed. Here a fixed point is chosen to be a value of which for given and a neutrino mass with gives (crossing with lower of horizontal lines in Fig.2.1). Then we are looking for which still covers C.L. region constraint by Eq.(2.3) and we get the range of neutrino masses written in the Table 2.1, see Fig.2.2.

For Set B possible values of are of course even more restricted than for Set A.

Results in Table 2.1 are compatible with Eq.(1.1) for the last column, TeV. If we take into account FCNC, neutral heavy Higgs mass should be larger than 10-15 TeV, going down to a few TeV only in some special cases (for references and update discussion, see [37]). So, from now on, let us focus on the last column, TeV. If we start with some other value of instead , e.g. GeV ( GeV) and muon data in the range restricts allowed heavy neutrino masses to the region GeV.

To discuss a case with non-degenerate neutrinos, in Fig.2.3 we let one of the heavy neutrinos to be much lighter, GeV (for we keep masses through the relation Eq.(2.7)). We call it the case (a). For the case (b) we vary all three heavy masses with , in accordance with Eq.(2.7) (degeneracy, the same ). In the case there is only one line, as two cases (a) and (b) give the same predictions. We can see that lines change slightly with chosen neutrino mass spectrum, but not dramatically, values of allowed are relatively stable and well constrained.

In summary, heavy ( TeV) Higgs masses are allowed and follow roughly scale (allowed increases with increasing ). However, the most important for the LHC phenomenology is the fact that still light (at the level of hundreds of GeV) heavy neutrinos are allowed in the framework of MLRSM. Let us discuss it more carefully.

3 Consequences of low energy constraints for MLRSM signals at LHC

3.1 Decay widths and branching ratios of the heavy LR spectrum

Figure 3.1: Decay branching fractions and total widths for decays. Symbol on this and next plots stands for a sum of all quark flavours, . Similarly, , .

Experimental limits on mixing angle are very severe and, similarly as in the muon decay case, we neglect it here. Second, as already mentioned in Introduction, we assume MLRSM with diagonal light-heavy neutrino mixings of the "see-saw" type


where is an order of magnitude of the Dirac neutrino mass matrix and stands for 3 light neutrinos.

These two are conservative assumptions, on the other hand they are very natural and we can see what signals we can get at LHC for such harsh model conditions. For instance, analyzed in [39] signals which stem from the gauge boson triple vertices including heavy gauge bosons are absent completely in our scenario.

In Fig.3.1 we can see that heavy gauge boson decay is dominated by quark channels333In Fig.3.1 and the next we do not depict explicitly exclusion regions (e.g. Eq.(1.1)), as the limits for the heavy particle spectrum change quickly with increasing LHC luminosity, see e.g. [18] vs. [19].. Second of importance is decay to heavy neutrinos, that is why these two channels make the "golden" process considered in the next section large. As the mixing in Eq.(3.1) becomes smaller, the decay mode falls, e.g. for GeV we obtain . These are a kind of textbook results, see e.g. [40] and references therein.

However, there are scenarios in which branching ratios can be different and heavy particles can decay dominantly to the light particles, so not through the right-handed currents. This is a case of non see-saw models where mixing angles are independent of heavy neutrino masses, see e.g. [10].

Let us assume then that light-heavy neutrino mixing defined in Eq.(3.1) is independent of the heavy neutrino mass, experimental limits on elements of this mixing read (this limit has improved substantially over the last decade) [43]


In this case, the branching ratio in Fig.3.1 will enhance444In a case where more than one heavy neutrino state exists (which is true in MLRSM), the maximal light-heavy neutrino mixing defined in Eq.(3.2) is constrained further among others by neutrinoless double beta decay measurements to be less than [41]. We take then this parameter in our considerations for non-decoupling light-heavy neutrino mixings., BR(). Still, it is not large. and modes dominate.

Figure 3.2: Decay branching fractions and total widths for decays.
Figure 3.3: Decay branching fractions and total widths for heavy neutrino decays with see-saw type of mixing, Eq.(3.1), first row ( = 0.1 GeV (on left) and 1 GeV (on right)). In the second row, on left, branching ratios with maximal type of mixings are calculated, Eq.(3.2). On right the total widths are given. is fixed at 2.5 TeV.

In Fig.3.2 decays of the boson are shown. Also here results are practically independent of light-heavy mixing scenarios, Eqs.(3.1,3.2). heavy boson decays are also dominated by quark channels. Here the situation is more complicated and up to a per mil level, a few channels contribute. Interestingly, also decay to a pair of light neutrinos or bosons as well as to the pair are substantial.

However, the situation changes with respect to light-heavy mixing scenarios for the case of heavy neutrino decays. Decays of the first of heavy neutrinos in Fig.3.3 are dominated by the (we neglect here the mixing between different generations) mode till the threshold where production is open. Mass of is fixed at 2.5 TeV. Still option is large, even if mass would be smaller ( TeV). Changing the mixing Eq.(3.1) affects mainly mode (which is negligible).

If we took maximal possible mixing, , then the branching ratios for heavy neutrino decays change qualitatively (left figure in the second row in Fig.3.3). We can see that the and decays dominate over decay channels to the heavy states in the kinematically allowed regions. The reason is that although decay amplitudes for light boson modes are proportional to the small light-heavy neutrino mixing, the helicity summed amplitudes for gauge boson modes are suppressed in addition by the masses of gauge bosons, which is a stronger effect in a case of heavy gauge bosons. The difference between both scenarios of neutrino mixings is clearly visible on the last plot in Fig.3.3 where total decay widths are given.

In order to show influence of the Higgs sector we deliberately distorted heavy Higgs mass spectrum to include some lighter Higgs masses such that Higgs particles show up in the neutrino decay. However, open in this way Higgs decay modes contribute well below per mille level in total and are negligible.

3.2 LR signals at LHC, a sample

The so-called "golden" process where the left-right symmetry signal is not suppressed due to small light-heavy neutrino mixings is depicted in Fig.3.4 (here heavy neutrino couples directly to which decays hadronically, Fig.3.1). Thus the final state consists of the same sign di-leptons and jets which also carries a clear signature of lepton number violation. Even if we consider the leptonic decay modes of , we can have 3-leptons and as our signal events. The presence of one missing energy source allows to reconstruct fully, and then the reconstruction of the right-handed neutrino, , helps to reduce the combinatorial backgrounds for this process. In [21] it has been discussed that the dominant background for this process is coming from events and is negligible beyond the TeV scale. In the other case where decays hadronically with the largest branching fraction, the invariant mass of the hardest jets plus one(two) lepton(s) also allows to reconstruct in a clean way the heavy neutrino and masses.

Figure 3.4: A tree level basic diagram for the process. The process is not suppressed if decays to right-handed quarks forming jets (it is suppressed if it decays to standard, left-handed leptons).
Figure 3.5: Cross-sections for processes for sets of parameters in Set B, TeV, respectively.

As discussed in the last Section, muon decay data restricts very much possible values of (and through the relation Eq.(2.4) masses of heavy gauge bosons) for chosen spectrum of Higgs and neutrino masses. Let us then assume a scenario for LHC potential discoveries with TeV (then TeV). If we choose the most uniform scenario defined by Set B in Table 2.1 (with the same masses for all Higgs particles and also for all heavy neutrinos), then muon decay data sets the heavy neutrino masses of the order 7 TeV (and masses of Higgs particles of the order of 10 TeV).

We have computed the cross-section555For numerical results we use CalcHEP [44] and Madgraph5 [45] with our own implementation of the MLRSM model in Feynrules [46]. We made a couple of cross checks for correctness of implementations for neutrino and gauge boson mixings. Results for [11], [38], [41] and [26] have been recovered, among others. for the process for the sets of parameters given in Set B (Table 1, GeV is for TeV). Signatures for heavy neutrinos and charged gauge bosons in hadron colliders have been discussed already some decades ago, for a first paper on these kind of signals, see [42]. Results are shown in Fig.3.5. As can be seen in this case the cross-section is very small for LHC operating at 7 TeV, results for higher will give even smaller values. Going to 14 TeV of course improve the situation but still this scenario is very unlikely to be discovered.

Figure 3.6: Cross-section for process as a function of heavy neutrino mass for different sets of masses, TeV. Excluded region of depends on , see the plots in [18, 19]. We have just fixed it safely at GeV.

Luckily, other scenarios are possible where one of heavy right-handed neutrinos has smaller mass, e.g. 800 GeV, but other two are very heavy having masses 5 TeV. There is also an option with 3 degenerate heavy neutrinos but with smaller , e.g. GeV ( TeV), see the last column in Table 2.1. These scenarios are still compatible with muon decay data (though relatively light heavy gauge boson is required). It gives much bigger cross-section, see Fig.3.6, with anticipated luminosity this is a detectable process.

From the above plot it is clear that as the mass of the heavy neutrino and the scale increase, the production cross-section falls rapidly and then the further decays of the followed by the decay of suppress the effective cross-section for this "golden" process.

Figure 3.7: Cross-section for process for different sets of heavy neutrino masses , TeV. The results are for degenerate heavy neutrino and Higgs particle masses. masses are fixed at 10 TeV and TeV. The whole shaded bands correspond to parameters labeled as Set A in Table 2.1 and Fig.2.2. In addition, for each between and in Fig. 2.2, heavy neutrino mass spectrum which is in agreement with muon decay data is obtained (we call it Set B). In this way a possible cross-section for allowed masses is constrained dramatically. These regions are denoted by almost vertical and thin black stripes within the wider shaded regions.

However, in Fig.3.7 we show more carefully how precise low energy data from Table 2.1 restricts a space of possible cross-section for this process. Let us assume that Higgs masses are degenerate, at the level of 10 TeV and 15 TeV (the first case is almost excluded, see Eqs.(1.1),(2.7) and Table 1). Then vertical bands restrict regions of possible cross-sections for given masses. If we assume in addition that heavy neutrino masses are also degenerate, then the black, thin strips inside these bands give for each very narrow intervals of possible heavy neutrino masses, consequently, region of possible cross-sections is very limited. With an assumed luminosity of tens of inverse femtobarns at TeV, fb would give hundreds of events, which we take as a safety discovery limit for this process. Relevant experimental conditions do not spoil signals, for a discussion on kinematical cuts and a background for this process, see e.g. [26]. In this case, without muon data, possible values give mass in the range (1 TeV, 3.5 TeV) for heavy neutrino masses up to 1 TeV. Muon data shrinks the region very much, (for TeV) and (for TeV). From Fig.3.7 it should be clear that increasing heavy Higgs masses would shift the scale to higher level, decreasing further cross sections for the considered process. In summary, for the left-right LHC phenomenology, Higgs mass spectrum is optimal in vicinity of 15 TeV region. For a case of degenerate heavy neutrinos, heavy Higgs particles with masses at about 10 TeV and below are practically excluded by muon data. On the other hand, MLRSM scenarios with Higgs particles masses at about 20 TeV (and above) are allowed by muon data, however, low energy muon restrictions constraint heavy gauge boson and neutrino masses in such a way that fb.

4 Conclusions

It is very important to take into account low energy data in phenomenological analysis of non-standard models at LHC. This is a quite common action in supersymmetric models, e.g. precise analysis is very important for pinning down parameter space for supersymmetry collider searches [47, 48]. These kind of analysis are less popular in GUT models (it is justified if a decoupling of heavy states occurs). We should acknowledge the last work [33] where a connection between neutrinoless doubly beta decay and LHC for LR models is undertaken (this is however by its nature purely "tree level" calculation and connection).

Here we show the interplay between fermion-boson heavy spectrum of the MLRSM model in the muon decay. As it is typical for GUT models, it is also true for MLRSM that "extensions of the SM in most cases end up in a fine tuning problem, because decoupling of new heavy states, in theories where masses are generated by spontaneous symmetry breaking, is more the exception than the rule" (quotation from [49]). As shown in Section 2, fixing heavy gauge boson masses and Higgs particle masses, the region of possible heavy neutrino mass spectrum is restricted by the muon decay. However, there is still a way to get at least one relatively light heavy neutrino, which can be explored at LHC. This is possible as heavy particles effects are effectively "weighted" at the 1-loop level (for virtual particles the effects are summed up which means that effects of 3 heavy degenerate neutrinos can be equivalent to the effects of one relatively light and two heavier heavy neutrino masses). In this case, there is still a way that left-right symmetry is broken at low enough energy scale such that LR models can be discovered directly at LHC (see Section 3).

Let us note, that the situation gets more interesting if LHC finds heavy particles which appear in the spectrum of the LR model. Then analysis could be reversed – the obtained physical parameters can be helpful to further pin down remaining parameters for a part of the spectrum which can not be directly constrained at LHC, through the low energy precise analysis like the muon decay. For instance, knowledge of both the mass of the lightest of heavy neutrinos and of the scale ( boson mass reconstruction) will restrict masses of heavier neutrinos in . This will be a great hint for searches of remaining particles since we would be able to predict where to look for them.

We think that this kind of low-high energy analysis is important and should be further explored, for instance including 1-loop level calculations in MLRSM for lepton flavour violating processes. In general, when making numerical predictions for any model beyond the SM, as many as possible of low energy observables and precision LEP observables should be taken into account.
