ABSTRACT We present a simple extension of the minimal supersymmetric standard model which provides a unified picture of cosmological baryon asymmetry and dark matter. Our model introduces a gauge singlet field N and a color triplet field X which couple to the right-handed quark fields. The out-of-equilibrium decay of the Majorana fermion N mediated by the exchange of the scalar field X generates adequate baryon asymmetry for MN approximately 100 GeV and MX approximately TeV. The scalar partner of N (denoted N1) is naturally the lightest SUSY particle as it has no gauge interactions and plays the role of dark matter. The model is experimentally testable in (i) neutron-antineutron oscillations with a transition time estimated to be around 10(10)sec, (ii) discovery of colored particles X at LHC with mass of order TeV, and (iii) direct dark matter detection with a predicted cross section in the observable range.

ABSTRACT: Results are presented on neutron-antineutron oscillations in a 16O nucleus from the Kamioka nucleon-decay experiment KAMIOKANDE. The lower limit on neutron lifetime in 16O is 4.3×1031 yr at 90% C.L., corresponding to a lower limit of 1.2×108 sec at 90% C.L. for neutron-antineutron oscillation time.

##### Article: Neutrino mass and baryon-number nonconservation in superstring models.
[hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: We propose new mechanisms for understanding neutrino masses in superstring models that contain E/sub 6/-singlet zero-mass fields after compactification. We show that the low-energy gauge group of these models can be phenomenologically acceptable. We then comment on ..delta..B-italic = 1 and ..delta..B-italic = 2 baryon-number-violating processes in these models.

ABSTRACT: We present a new mechanism for generating the baryon asymmetry of the Universe directly in the decay of a singlet scalar field S(r) with a weak scale mass and a high dimensional baryon number-violating coupling. Unlike most currently popular models, this mechanism, which becomes effective after the electroweak phase transition, does not rely on the sphalerons for inducing a nonzero baryon number. CP asymmetry in S(r) decay arises through loop diagrams involving the exchange of W+/- gauge bosons and is suppressed by light quark masses, leading naturally to a value of eta(B) approximately 10(-10). The simplest realization of this idea which uses a six quark DeltaB=2 operator predicts colored scalars accessible to the CERN Large Hadron Collider and neutron-antineutron oscillation within reach of the next-generation experiments.
