After electroweak symmetry breaking, the effective Type I Seesaw Lagrangian with three heavy Majorana neutrinos ''N''i (with i=1,2,3) is given by [ [#Atre 1] ] {{{ #!latex $\mathcal{L}_{\rm Type~I} = \mathcal{L}_{\rm SM} + \mathcal{L}_{N} + \mathcal{L}_{N~\text{Int.}}$, }}} where { #!latex $\mathcal{L}_{\rm SM}$ } is the Standard Model Lagrangian, the heavy Majorana neutrino's kinetic and mass terms are where the first term is the Standard Model Lagrangian; in the mass basis, the heavy Majorana neutrinos' kinetic and mass terms are {{{ #!latex $\mathcal{L}_{N} = \frac{1}{2}\overline{N} i\!\not\!\partial N - \frac{1}{2}M_N \overline{N}N$, $\mathcal{L}_{N} = \frac{1}{2}\overline{N_k} i\!\not\!\partial N_k - \frac{1}{2}m_{N_k} \overline{N_k}N_k, \quad k=1,\dots,3$; }}} and its interactions with the Weak gauge and Higgs bosons in the mass eigenbasis, i.e., after mixing with active neutrinos, are given by \begin{eqnarray} \mathcal{L}_{N~\text{Int}} = &-&\frac{g}{\sqrt{2}} W_{\mu}^{+}\sum_{\ell=e}^{\tau} \overline{N}V_{\ell N}^{*}\gamma^{\mu}P_{L}\ell^{-} &-&\frac{g}{\sqrt{2}} W_{\mu}^{+}\sum_{k=1}^{3}\sum_{\ell=e}^{\tau} \overline{N_k}V_{\ell k}^{*}\gamma^{\mu}P_{L}\ell^{-} +{\rm H.c.} \\ &-&\frac{g}{2\cos\theta_W}Z_{\mu}\sum_{\ell=e}^{\tau} \overline{N}V_{\ell N}^{*}\gamma^{\mu}P_{L}\nu_\ell &-&\frac{g}{2\cos\theta_W}Z_{\mu}\sum_{k=1}^{3}\sum_{\ell=e}^{\tau} \overline{N_k}V_{\ell k}^{*}\gamma^{\mu}P_{L}\nu_\ell +{\rm H.c.} \\ &-&\frac{g m_N}{2 M_W}         h \sum_{\ell=e}^{\tau} \overline{N}V_{\ell N}^{*}P_{L}\nu_\ell &-&\frac{g m_N}{2 M_W}         h \sum_{k=1}^{3}\sum_{\ell=e}^{\tau} \overline{N_k}V_{\ell k}^{*}P_{L}\nu_\ell +{\rm H.c.} \end{eqnarray} }}} The mixing matrix elements V''lk'' parametrize the mixing between the (active) lepton flavor eigenstate ''l'' and the heavy mass eigenstate corresponding to the mass eigenvalue mNk. === Model Files === * [https://feynrules.irmp.ucl.ac.be/attachment/wiki/typeIseesaw/heavyN.fr heavyN.fr]:  Main model file. Relies on sm.fr (default FR model file) being declared elsewhere. * [https://feynrules.irmp.ucl.ac.be/attachment/wiki/typeIseesaw/heavyN.nb heavyN.nb]:  Mathematica notebook file that loads FR and model. Allows user to run quick sanity checks (optional) and outputs UFO file. * [https://feynrules.irmp.ucl.ac.be/attachment/wiki/typeIseesaw/Seesaw_TypeI.tgz Seesaw_TypeI.tgz]: Standalone package containing heavyN.fr, heavyN.nb, massless.rst (default FR file), diagonalCKM.rst (default FR file), and sm.fr (default FR file). To download and unpack, use the commands: ~/home/$wget https://feynrules.irmp.ucl.ac.be/attachment/wiki/typeIseesaw/Seesaw_TypeI.tgz ~/home/$ tar -zxvf Seesaw_TypeI.tgz * [https://feynrules.irmp.ucl.ac.be/attachment/wiki/typeIseesaw/Seesaw_TypeI.tgz Seesaw_TypeI.tgz]: Standalone package containing heavyN.fr, heavyN.nb, massless.rst (default FR file), diagonalCKM.rst (default FR file), and sm.fr (default FR file). * [https://feynrules.irmp.ucl.ac.be/attachment/wiki/typeIseesaw/Seesaw_TypeI_WithUFO.tgz Seesaw_TypeI_withUFO.tgz]: Same as Seesaw_TypeI.tgz but with UFO folder generated using restrictions massless.rst (only massive fermions are top quark and Majorana neutrino) and diagonalCKM.rst (CKM matrix set to unity). * [https://feynrules.irmp.ucl.ac.be/attachment/wiki/typeIseesaw/Seesaw_TypeI_UFO.tgz Seesaw_TypeI_UFO.tgz]: Standalone UFO folder as packaged in Seesaw_TypeI_withUFO.tgz. Notes: * The model contains five free parameters in addition to SM parameters: heavy neutrino mass mN, heavy neutrino with WN, and mixing matrix elements VeN, VmuN, and VtaN that parameterize the mixing between lepton flavor eigenstates (\nu_e, \nu_mu, \nu_tau) and heavy mass eigenstate N. '''Note''': VlN are restricted to be real in the model file. * To download any of the packages and unpack via the terminal, use the commands: ~/Path $wget http://feynrules.irmp.ucl.ac.be/raw-attachment/wiki/typeIseesaw/Seesaw_TypeI.tgz ~/Path$ tar -zxvf Seesaw_TypeI.tgz ~/Path $wget http://feynrules.irmp.ucl.ac.be/raw-attachment/wiki/typeIseesaw/Seesaw_TypeI_WithUFO.tgz ~/Path$ tar -zxvf Seesaw_TypeI_WithUFO.tgz * In addition to the SM parameters, this model contains 15 free parameters: * Three masses: mN1, mN2, mN3. Defaults are 300 GeV, 500 GeV, and 1 TeV, respectively. * Three widths: WN1, WN2, WN3. Defaults are 0.303 GeV, 1.50 GeV, and 12.3 GeV, respectively. * Nine mixing parameters, V''lk'' for ''l'' = ''e, mu, tau'' and ''k'' = 1,2,3. Default values are V''lk'' = Identity(3x3), i.e., Ve1 = Vmu2 = Vta3 = 1 and all others zero. * '''Note''': VlN are restricted to be real in the model file. === Validation ===
