SeeSaw mechanism

  1. Jan 3, 2015 #1
    Hi all,

    I think it's just an Eigenvalue preoblem. I'm studying Seesaw mechanism from
    http://www.quantumfieldtheory.info/TheSeesawMechanism

    I don't get how he substituted in equ. 21 for N Eigenvalue from equ. 20, that ## \frac{m_D}{m^R} ## is a factor of ## \nu_R ## not ## \nu_l^c ## ? Any help ..

    why do you say that it's a factor of [itex] \nu_R[/itex] ? he puts it as a factor of [itex] \nu_L [/itex].
    Although I have to admit that your eyes should burn by reading that thing... the subscripts are very small...

    Just how he did that ? I mean from equ. 20, ## \nu^c_L = \frac{m_D}{m^R} \nu_R ##, then what he did in 21 ? I think
    ## N = \nu^c_L + \nu_R ##, but if we substituted by 20, we won't get the equ. he had ..
