as a U(1) extension of the SM with 3 RH neutrinos and a singlet scalar.

This is an update to the previous minimal Zprime model.

Model description

The model describe a U(1) extension of the SM, related to the B-L (baryon minus lepton) charge. 3 RH neutrinos are required to cancel the anomalies, thus providing neutrino masses via the type-I see-saw. 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.

  • Minimal B-L model: gt = 0. This is the "Minimal" version of the model, where the mixing between Z and Z' is set to zero. This choice is set for the .fr and UFO file.
