Abstract

It is pointed out that heavy Majorana particles contemplated in certain grand unified theories may explain the cosmological baryon excess. Induced neutrino mixing can give oscillation lengths consistent with reactor and accelerator experiments, but capable of explaining the solar-neutrino "puzzle."
