Flavor and CP from String Theory
Modular transformations of string theory are shown to play a crucial role in the discussion of discrete flavor symmetries in the Standard Model. They include CP transformations and provide a
Residual flavor symmetry breaking in the landscape of modular flavor models
We study a symmetry breaking of residual flavor symmetries realized at fixed points of the moduli space. In the supersymmetric modular invariant theories, a small departure of the modulus from fixed

The framework of compactified heterotic string theory offers consistent ultraviolet (UV) comple-tions of the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics. In this approach, the existence of flavor symmetries
Completing the eclectic flavor scheme of the ℤ2 orbifold
We present a detailed analysis of the eclectic flavor structure of the two-dimensional Z2 orbifold with its two unconstrained moduli T and U as well as SL(2,Z)T × SL(2,Z)U modular symmetry. This
Modular symmetry anomaly and nonperturbative neutrino mass terms in magnetized orbifold models
We study the modular symmetry anomaly in magnetized orbifold models. The nonperturbative effects such as D-brane instanton effects can break tree-level symmetry. We study which part of the modular
CP violation in modular invariant flavor models
We study the spontaneous CP violation through the stabilization of the modulus τ in modular invariant flavor models. The CP-invariant potential has the minimum only at Re[τ]=0 or 1/2(mod 1). From


On flavor symmetries of phenomenologically viable string compactifications
Heterotic orbifolds can explain the origin of flavor symmetries and the flavor representations of matter fields in particle physics as a result of the geometric properties of the associated string
Modular symmetry and non-Abelian discrete flavor symmetries in string compactification
We study the modular symmetry in magnetized D-brane models on $T^2$. Non-Abelian flavor symmetry $D_4$ in the model with magnetic flux $M=2$ (in a certain unit) is a subgroup of the modular symmetry.
