19
Let us introduce the projectors (Barbieri,Creminelli,Strumia,Tetradis’01) : 1. 1.In each inverse decay the Higgs interacts now with incoherent flavour eigenstates ! the wash-out is reduced and 2. In general and this produces an additional CP violating contribution to the flavoured CP asymmetries: These 2 terms correspond to 2 different flavour effects : Interestingly one has that now this additional contribution depends on U ! Fully flavoured regime ( = , +e)

20
– Alignment case – Democratic (semi-democratic) case – One-flavor dominance and big effect! Remember that: a one-flavor dominance scenario can be realized only if the P 1 term dominates ! General cases (K 1 >> 1)

21
consider first | ij | 1 and m 1 << m atm : Flavor effects do not relax the lower bound on M 1 and T reh ! Numerically: M 1 (GeV) K1K1K1K1 Analytically: unflavored flavored Do flavour effects relax the bounds on neutrino masses ? M 1 (GeV)

22
A new effect for large | ij | It dominates for | ij | 1 but is upper bounded because of orthogonality: It is usually neglected but since it is not upper bounded by orthogonality, for | ij | 1 it can be important The usual lower bound gets relaxed

Let us now further impose real 1 = 0 traditional unflavored case M 1 min The lower bound gets more stringent but still successful leptogenesis is possible just with CP violation from ‘low energy’ phases that can be tested in 0 decay (Majorana phases) (difficult) and more realistically in neutrino mixing (Dirac phase) 1 = - ¼ /2 2 = 0 = 0 Majorana phases Dirac phase Leptogenesis from low energy phases ? (Blanchet, PDB ’06)

28
M 1 (GeV) In the hierarchical limit (M 3 >> M 2 >> M 1 ): In this region the results from the full flavored regime are expected to undergo severe corrections that tend to reduce the allowed region Here some minor corrections are also expected -leptogenesis represents another important motivation for a full Quantum Kinetic description ! (Anisimov, Blanchet, PDB, arXiv ) sin 13 =0.20 1 = 0 2 = 0 = - /2 Dirac phase leptogenesis

29
Full degenerate limit: M 1 M 2 M 3 The maximum enhancement of the CP asymmetries is obtained in so called resonant leptogenesis : lower bound on sin 13 and upper bound on m 1

30
Some remarks on -leptogenesis : there is no theoretical motivation …however, within a generic model where all 6 phases are present, it could be regarded as an approximate scenario if the contribution from dominates it is interesting to know that something we could discover in neutrino mixing experiments is sufficient to explain (in principle) a global property of the Universe On the other hand notice that: if we do discover CP violation in neutrino mixing it does not prove leptogenesis notdis

31
Different possibilities, for example: partial hierarchy: M 3 >> M 2, M 1 (Pilaftsis ’97, Hambye et al ’03, Blanchet,PDB ‘06) 3) Beyond the hierarchical limit M 3 >> GeV :

32
3 Effects play simultaneously a role for 2 1 : 1. 1.Asymmetries add up 2. 2.Wash-out effects add up as well 3. 3.CP asymmetries get enhanced For 2 0.01 ( degenerate limit ) the first two effects saturate and:

33
The lower bound on M 1 disappears and is replaced by a lower bound on M 2 …that however still implies a lower bound on T reh ! (PDB’05) For a special choice of =R 23 4) N 2 -dominated scenario Four things happen simultaneously: Equivalent to assume:

35
Conclusions 1.The minimal scenario (vanilla leptogenesis) grasps the main features of leptogenesis neutrino mass bounds but there are important novelties introduced by various effects beyond 2.A lower bound on the reheating temperature is a solid feature in the hierarchical limit. However, flavor effects introduce a new possibility that, though at expenses of a mild tuning, can relax the lower bound from 10 9 GeV down to 10 8 GeV 3.The upper bound on neutrino masses needs a final answer from a full density matrix approach 4.Flavor effects make possible a scenario (Dirac phase leptogenesis) where the final asymmetry stems only from the same source of CP violation (sin 13 sin ) that is testable in neutrino mixing 5.The N 2 - dominated scenario is a good option with potential interesting applications
