Topics in Left Right Symmetric Models
We study several aspects of the Left-Right-Symmetric Model (LRSM), probing their experimental consequences insofar as they would enable us to distinguish the model from the Weinberg-Salam one. Firstly, the Higgs sector is studied and the Higgs decay modes are analyzed. The two-body decays involving a heavy gauge boson in its intermediary stage are found to be the most promising for the production of Higgs. This latter could be detected at SSC in the decay modes: W(,2) (--->) H('+)(gamma) Z(,2) (--->) Z(,1)H(,0), and W(,2) (--->) W(,1)H(,0). Higgs in the mass range up to 700 GeV could be scanned for heavy gauge bosons of masses around 1 TeV. The CP violation in both ordinary and radiative r-decay is studied with no encouraging results emerging for its experimental observability. The lepton number violating colored and colorless Higgs, predicted to exist in an extension of LRSM a la Pati-Salam, are studied. Limits on their couplings with the fermions from various processes are given and their production modes and rates at various colliders discussed.
