     9The Type I Seesaw Model extends the Standard Model (SM) field content by introducing three right-handed (RH) neutrinos, which are singlets under the SM gauge symmetry (no color, weak isospin, or weak hypercharge charges), as well as one RH Majorana mass for each RH neutrino. 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] ]

    5049Notes: 
    51  * 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. 
     50 * To download any of the packages and unpack via the terminal, use the commands:

     60 * In addition to the SM parameters, this model contains 15 free parameters: 
     61  * Three masses: mN1, mN2, mN3. Defaults are 300 GeV, 500 GeV, and 1 TeV, respectively. 
     62  * Three widths: WN1, WN2, WN3. Defaults are 0.303 GeV, 1.50 GeV, and 12.3 GeV, respectively. 
     63  * 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. 
     64  * '''Note''': VlN are restricted to be real in the model file.
