"Thermal production of relativistic right-handed neutrinos"

Presented by Dietrich Bodeker, Universitaet Bielefeld

Wednesday, March 14, 2012, 11:00 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The production of right-handed neutrinos is important for models of baryogenesis through leptogenesis. Relativistic right-handed neutrinos are produced through 2 -> 2 scattering and nearly collinear 1 <-> 2 emission which involves multiple scattering mediated by soft gauge bosons. I discuss the complete leading order calculation of the production rate.
