The seesaw mechanism at TeV scale in the 3-3-1 model with right-handed neutrinosJun 18 2008We implement the seesaw mechanism in the 3-3-1 model with right-handed neutrinos. This is accomplished by the introduction of a scalar sextet into the model and the spontaneous violation of the lepton number. We identify the Majoron as a singlet under ... More

Lower bounds for the constants in the Bohnenblust-Hille inequality: the case of real scalarsNov 14 2011Nov 18 2011The Bohnenblust-Hille inequality was obtained in 1931 and (in the case of real scalars) asserts that for every positive integer $N$ and every $m$-linear mapping $T:\ell_{\infty}^{N}\times...\times\ell_{\infty}^{N}\rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ one has (\sum\limits_{i_{1},...,i_{m}=1}^{N}|T(e_{i_{^{1}}},...,e_{i_{m}})|^{\frac{2m}{m+1}})^{\frac{m+1}{2m}}\leq ...
