We construct for the first time a flavor model, based on the smallest discrete symmetry Δ(27) that implements spontaneous CP violation with a complex phase of geometric origin, which can actually reproduce all quark masses and mixing data. We show that its scalar sector has exotic properties that can be tested at the LHC.

Fermion mixing with geometrical CP violation and its tests at the LHC
We review and clarify some cases of geometrical CP violation, the framework of spontaneous CP violation through complex phases with values that are independent of parameters of the potential. We
Geometrical CP violation with a complete fermion sector
A bstractWe consider Δ(27) models featuring geometrical CP violation, and analyse several structures that can obtain the observed lepton masses and mixing. The leptonic structures considered are
Towards realistic models of quark masses with geometrical CP violation
We present a model for quark masses and mixing, featuring geometrical CP violation through a Δ(27) triplet. By employing a single U(1)F or ZN symmetry in addition to Δ(27), we forbid all terms in the
GUT and Flavor Models for Neutrino Masses and Mixing
In the recent years neutrino experiments have studied in detail the phenomenon of neutrino oscillations and most of the oscillation parameters have been measured with a good accuracy. However, in
Warped flavor symmetry predictions for neutrino physics
A bstractA realistic five-dimensional warped scenario with all standard model fields propagating in the bulk is proposed. Mass hierarchies would in principle be accounted for by judicious choices of
Controlled fermion mixing and FCNCs in a ∆(27) 3+1 Higgs Doublet Model
We propose a 3+1 Higgs Doublet Model based on the ∆(27) family symmetry supplemented by several auxiliary cyclic symmetries leading to viable Yukawa textures for the Standard Model fermions,
Spontaneous CP Violation and Scalar FCNC
A short overview of general aspects of Spontaneous CP Violation and Scalar Flavour Changing Neutral Couplings is presented. Then, a 2HDM where CP Violation has a spontaneous origin, including the
Viable textures for the fermion sector
We consider a modification of the Fukuyama-Nishiura texture and compare it to the precision quark flavour data, finding that it fits the data very well but at the cost of accidental cancelations
