Jacobo Lopez Pavon (CERN)


I will discuss two remarkable aspects of the minimal Type-I seesaw model phenomenology. I will first show that for an inverted light neutrino ordering and O(GeV) scale heavy Majorana neutrinos, future measurements from SHiP and neutrinoless double beta decay could in principle provide sufficient information to predict the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the universe. Then, I will also discuss the CP discovery potential of SHiP and FCC in the context of the minimal model, and show that a 5σ discovery of leptonic CP violation would be possible in a very significant fraction of the parameter space.
