Implications of Higgs Universality for Sterile Neutrino Masses

Presented by Terry Goldman (LANL)

Higgs Universality follows the example of Cabibbo and revises
the Standard Model in a way that recognizes it should be viewed
as including some of what is usually considered BSM physics. The
application to quarks and their weak interactions displays it as a
consistent framework, but provides no predictions. The application
to leptons, while also consistent with all observations, suggests a
particular ratio of the masses of the three sterile neutrinos required
to complete the SM mass structure to provide non-zero Majorana
masses for the active neutrinos consistent with their mixing matrix.
