In my talk I will describe the effective approach to lepton number violation and implications of potential future observation of lepton number violating (LNV) processes, primarily of neutrinoless double beta decay. The interplay between lepton number violation at high and low energies is of particular interest, as the constraints on theories of baryogenesis can be obtained. One can state that...

We propose a new mechanism to generate a lepton asymmetry based on the vacuum CP-violating phase transition (CPPT). This approach differs from classical thermal leptogenesis as a specific seesaw model, and its UV completion, need not be specified. The lepton asymmetry is generated via the dynamically realised coupling of the Weinberg operator during the phase transition. This mechanism...

The talk shall focus around explaining the role of effective potentials in theories that incorporate spontaneous symmetry breaking and how they contribute in radiative mass generation, along with their implementation in different models.

There is something afoot in flavour physics. A number of related anomalies concerning B decays, which are intimately linked to CKM matrix elements, have surfaced over the years. I will give an overview of an ongoing calculation of the Bs to Ds decay using lattice QCD, which may shed some light on what new thing could be lurking in the flavour sector.
