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

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.
