Lepton-number violation can be induced by the exchange of an on-shell Majorana neutrino $N$ in semileptonic $|\Delta L|=2$ decays of the ${B}_{s}$ meson, ${B}_{s}^{0}\to {P}^{-}{\pi }^{-}{\mu }^{+}{\mu }^{+}$ with $P=K,{D}_{s}$.

J. P. ; et al The low-energy excesses observed by the MiniBooNE experiment have, to date, defied a convincing explanation under the standard model even with accommodation for nonzero neutrino mass.

We present and analyze a new set of Ward Identities which shed light on the distinction between different patterns of chiral symmetry restoration in QCD, namely $O\left(4\right)$ vs $O\left(4\right)×U\left(1{\right)}_{A}$.

Successful leptogenesis within the conventional TeV-scale left-right implementation of type-I seesaw has been shown to require that the mass of the right-handed ${W}_{R}^{±}$ boson should have a lower bound much above the reach of the Large Hadron Collider.
