Abstract

This is a short review on the mechanism of leptogenesis, which provides an attractive link between two important pieces of evidence for beyond Standard Model physics, namely, observed neutrino masses and matter-antimatter asymmetry in the Universe. We give special emphasis on TeV-scale leptogenesis models and provide a concrete example, which is testable in foreseeable laboratory experiments.
