Based upon the minimal BL model implementation, done in collaboration with Giovanni Marco Pruna (TU Dresden, Institut für Kern und Teilchenphysik, Dresden, Germany, formerly at University of Southampton, UK & RALPPD, Didcot, UK).
Model description
The model describe a U(1) extension of the SM, related to the BL (baryon minus lepton) charge. 3 RH neutrinos are required to cancel the anomalies, thus providing neutrino masses via the typeI seesaw. A Z' boson is also present, together with a further scalar for the spontaneous symmetry breaking of the further U(1) factor, at TeV scale.
This model describes a 1dimensional class of Z' models, where a continuous parameter scans over the possible discrete models. The model is fully implemented in the Feynman gauge (also Goldstones and Ghosts).
Popular benchmark models from the literature are recovered by setting appropriated relations among the new gauge parameters.
 Pure BL model: gt = 0. This is the "pure" version of the model, where the mixing between Z and Z' is set to zero. Separate model files for this benchmark model exists.
 SO(10)inspired U(1)_chi: gt =  4/5 g1p.
 U(1)_R: gt = 2 g1p.

Parameter description and user guide
The choice of benchmark model within the class is done by selecting the appropriate relation between the new gauge couplings. "g1p" is the gauge coupling directly connected to the U(1)_{BL} group (also present in the minimal BL model files), "gt" is the mixing parameter. Because of the limited number of degrees of freedom, the Z' mass has been chosen as the last free parameter, adjustable by the user. Therefore, the mixing ZZ' angle, the BLbreaking vev and the Zboson are INTERNAL parameters, evaluated as a function of the input parameters (g1p, gt, MZp). Henceforth, it's up to the user to choose values for the independent parameter complying to experimental constraints to ensure not to spoil in particular the Z mass. Per given benchmark model, it is sufficient to choose a Zp mass allowed by the LEP constraints to obtain a Z mass compatible with the LEP measurement, within errors.
