The dark side of flipped trinification

We propose a model which unifies the Left-Right symmetry with the SU(3)L gauge group, called fipped trinification, and based on the SU(3)C X SU(3)L X SU(3)R X U(1)X gauge group. The model inherits the interesting features of both symmetries while elegantly explaining the origin of the matter parity, WP = (-1)^3(B-L)+2s, and dark matter
stability. We develop the details of the spontaneous symmetry breaking mechanism in the model, determining the relevant mass eigenstates, and showing how neutrino masses are easily generated via the seesaw mechanism. Moreover, we introduce viable dark matter can-didates, encompassing a fermion, scalar and possibly vector fields, leading to a potentially novel dark matter phenomenology.
