In science:

This typically implies that the associated right-handed neutrino must be effectively decoupled from the see-saw mechanism, so that it corresponds to the decoupled right-handed neutrino of mass X ′ in sequential dominance discussed above.
Theory of Neutrinos: A White Paper
However, what about the possible heavy Ma jorana neutrinos that are presumably a part of nature if a see-saw mechanism is used to generate the observed light neutrino masses? In general these masses are quite heavy in order for the see-saw mechanism to give left-handed neutrinos light masses.
What is the Role of Neutrinos in Shaping the Universe?
Another class of typical examples is the dominance in the see-saw formula of a small eigenvalue in MRR , the right-handed Ma jorana neutrino mass matrix.
An Update on Models of Neutrino Masses and Mixings
From a model building perspective the fundamental parameters which must be input into the see-saw mechanism are the Dirac mass matrix mLR and the heavy right-handed neutrino Ma jorana mass matrix MRR .
Neutrino Mass
The light effective left-handed Ma jorana mass matrix mLL arises as an output according to the see-saw formula in Eq.3.5.
Neutrino Mass
The see-saw mechanism, on the other hand, can naturally explain such small neutrino masses [52, 53].
Searching for the Standard Model in the String Landscape : SUSY GUTs
In models with see-saw one can alternatively play with the charges for the right-handed SU(5) singlet neutrinos.
Perspectives in Neutrino Physics
To generate a spectrum of very light and very heavy neutrinos, a see-saw mechanism may be operative which is driven by large Ma jorana masses associated with the right-handed neutrinos.
Aspects of Higgs physics and physics beyond the Standard Model at LHC and e+e- linear colliders
However, this situation changes drastically if the SM is embedded in its (minimal) supersymmetric extension, including heavy right-handed neutrinos, responsible for the generation of low energy neutrino masses via the see-saw mechanism (MSSMRN) [2, 3].

The see-saw mechanism requires the existence of heavy right-handed neutrinos as well as of the neutrino Yukawa coupling Yν .

Below the see-saw scale, MR , the right-handed neutrinos are integrated out.

On the other hand, as we saw in Section 4, existence of degenerate weak detonation profiles does lead to nonuniqueness in solutions of the Riemann problem for the special case u+ = ui .

Fermion mass models and the leptogenesis1 mechanism for explaining the baryon asymmetry of our universe typically operate at high energies close to the unification scale MU or at the see-saw scales, i.e. the masses the heavy right-handed neutrinos.
Implications of Running Neutrino Parameters for Leptogenesis and for Testing Model Predictions
In see-saw models for neutrino masses (type I and type II), this requires solving the RGEs2– 7 for the effective neutrino mass matrix for the various effective theories which arise from successively integrating out the heavy degrees of freedom, in particular the heavy right-handed neutrinos.
Implications of Running Neutrino Parameters for Leptogenesis and for Testing Model Predictions
Furthermore it holds assuming that right-handed neutrinos are very hierarchical: thermal leptogenesis at low temperature is possible within the standard see-saw if right-handed neutrinos are mildly hierarchical (see e.g. M.
