Abdullahi, Asli and Hostert, Matheus and Pascoli, Silvia (2021) 'A dark seesaw solution to low energy anomalies: MiniBooNE, the muon (g − 2), and BaBar.', Physics Letters B, 820 .
A recent update from MiniBooNE has strengthened the observed 4.8σexcess of e-like events. Motivated by this and other notable deviations from standard model predictions, such as the muon (g−2), we propose a solution to low energy anomalies through a dark neutrino sector. The model is renormalizable and can also explain light neutrino masses with an anomaly-free and dark U(1)′gauge symmetry broken at the GeV scale. Large kinetic mixing leads to s-channel production of heavy neutral leptons at e+e−colliders, where we point out and explain a 2σexcess observed in the BaBar monophoton data. Our model is also compatible with anomalous e-like events seen at old accelerator experiments, as well as with an excess of double vertex signatures observed at CCFR.©2021 The Authors.
