keV sterile Neutrino Dark Matter and Neutrino Model Building

Abstract [en]

A sterile neutrino with a mass around the keV scale could be an interesting candidate for warm dark matter. Although there are several scenarios and production mechanisms known in which such a particle could yield the correct abundance, there are astonishingly few models around that can actually yield an explanation for the appearance of a keV-like scale. We here review three main classes of such mass models for keV sterile neutrino dark matter, based on split seesaw, on L-e - L-mu - L-tau symmetry, and on the Froggatt-Nielsen mechanism, respectively.
