Physics - Colloquium

Searches for rare processes at low energy provide unique opportunities to uncover physics beyond the Standard Model.  In this talk I will  provide a theoretical perspective on  nuclear neutrinoless double beta decay  as a probe of  lepton number non-conservation and its implications for the origin of neutrino mass and the Majorana nature of neutrinos.  Throughout,  I will highlight the theoretical challenges and progress associated with the interpretation of ongoing and future experimental searches.
