Abstract We consider a neutrino Two Higgs Doublet Model (νTHDM) in which neutrinos obtain naturally small Dirac masses from the soft symmetry breaking of a global U(1) X symmetry. We extended the model so the soft term is generated by the spontaneous breaking of U(1) X by a new scalar field. The symmetry breaking pattern can also stabilize a scalar dark matter candidate. After...

Although the seesaw mechanism is a natural explanation for the small neutrino masses, there are cases when the Majorana mass terms for the right-handed neutrinos are not allowed due to symmetry. In that case, if neutrino-specific Higgs doublet is introduced, neutrinos become Dirac particles and their small masses can be explained by its small VEV. We show that the same symmetry...

We consider the flavor-changing decays of the Higgs boson in a grand unified theory framework which is based on the SU(5) gauge group and implements the principle of minimal flavor violation. This allows us to explore the possibility of connecting the tentative hint of the Higgs decay \(h\rightarrow \mu \tau \) recently reported in the CMS experiment to potential new physics in...

We consider a simple extension of the Standard Model with a scalar top-philic Dark Matter (DM) S coupling, apart from the Higgs portal, exclusively to the right-handed top quark t R and a colored vector-like top partner T with a Yukawa coupling y ST which we call the topVL portal. When the Higgs portal is closed and y ST is perturbative (≲1), T S → (W + b, gt), \( SS\to t...

In the standard model (SM), lepton flavor violating (LFV) Higgs decay is absent at renormalizable level and thus it is a good probe to new physics. In this article we study a type of new physics that could lead to large LFV Higgs decay, i.e., a lepton-flavored dark matter (DM) model which is specified by a Majorana DM and scalar lepton mediators. Different from other similar...

We consider a local U(1) B−L extension of Zee-Babu model to explain the recently observed 3.5 keV X-ray line signal. The model has three Standard model (SM)-singlet Dirac fermions with different U(1) B−L charges. A complex scalar field charged under U(1) B−L is introduced to break the U(1) B−L symmetry. After U(1) B−L symmetry breaking a remnant discrete symmetry stabilizes the...

We propose a one-loop induced radiative neutrino mass model with anomaly free flavour dependent gauge symmetry: μ minus τ symmetry U(1) μ−τ . A neutrino mass matrix satisfying current experimental data can be obtained by introducing a weak isospin singlet scalar boson that breaks U(1) μ−τ symmetry, an inert doublet scalar field, and three right-handed neutrinos in addition to the...

AbstractWe extend the Zee-Babu model for the neutrino masses and mixings by first incorporating a scalar dark matter X with Z 2 symmetry and then X and a dark scalar φ with global U(1) symmetry. In the latter scenario the singly and doubly charged scalars that are new in the Zee-Babu model can explain the large annihilation cross section of a dark matter pair into two photons as...
