Title: TeV Scale Lepton Number Violation: Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay & the LHC 
Abstract:Determining the origin of neutrino masses remains a compelling challenge at the interface of nuclear and high energy physics. The standard see-saw neutrino mass mechanism postulates the existence of new lepton number violating (LNV) interactions at very high energy scales. In this talk, I consider the possibility that LNV interactions responsible for neutrino mass may exist at the TeV scale. I discuss how the interplay of searches for neutrinoless double beta decay and LHC searches for LNV processes may probe this possibility. I also discuss several theoretical issues pertaining to these searches for TeV scale LNV.
