After electroweak symmetry breaking, the effective Type I Seesaw Lagrangian with three heavy Majorana neutrinos ''N''i (withi=1,2,3) is given by [ [#Atre 1] ]9 The Type I Seesaw Model extends the Standard Model (SM) field content by introducing three righthanded (RH) neutrinos, which are singlets under the SM gauge symmetry (no color, weak isospin, or weak hypercharge charges), with each RH neutrino possessing one RH Majorana mass.
