The first string-derived eclectic flavor model with realistic phenomenology

Eclectic flavor groups arising from string compactifications combine the power of modular and traditional flavor symmetries to address the flavor puzzle. This top-down scheme determines the

Neutrino Flavor Model Building and the Origins of Flavor and CP Violation: A Snowmass White Paper

The neutrino sector offers one of the most sensitive probes of new physics beyond the Standard Model of Particle Physics (SM). The mechanism of neutrino mass generation is still unknown. The observed

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

4D modular flavor symmetric models inspired by a higher-dimensional theory

We study a scenario to derive four-dimensional modular flavor symmetric models from higher dimensional theory by assuming the compactification consistent with the modular symmetry. In our scenario,

Modular flavour symmetries and modulus stabilisation

Abstract We study the problem of modulus stabilisation in the framework of the modular symmetry approach to the flavour problem. By analysing simple UV-motivated CP-invariant potentials for the

Modular flavor symmetry and vector-valued modular forms

Abstract We revisit the modular flavor symmetry from a more general perspective. The scalar modular forms of principal congruence subgroups are extended to the vector-valued modular forms, then we

Top-down anatomy of flavor symmetry breakdown

A top-down approach to the flavor puzzle leads to eclectic flavor groups which include modular and traditional flavor symmetries. Based on examples of semirealistic T 2 / Z 3 orbifold compactifications

Modular symmetry at level 6 and a new route towards finite modular groups

Abstract We propose to construct the finite modular groups from the quotient of two principal congruence subgroups as Γ(N′)/Γ(N″), and the modular group SL(2, ℤ) is ex- tended to a principal

Revisiting modular symmetry in magnetized torus and orbifold compactifications

We study the modular symmetry in $T^2$ and orbifold comfactifications with magnetic fluxes. There are $|M|$ zero-modes on $T^2$ with the magnetic flux $M$. Their wavefunctions as well as massive

Modular flavor symmetry on a magnetized torus

We study the modular invariance in magnetized torus models. The modular invariant flavor model is a recently proposed hypothesis for solving the flavor puzzle, where the flavor symmetry originates

Eclectic flavor groups

The simultaneous study of top-down and bottom-up approaches to modular flavor symmetry leads necessarily to the concept of eclectic flavor groups. These are non-trivial products of modular and

Neutrino Flavour Symmetries

We provide a general classification of flavour symmetries according to their interplay with the proper Poincare' and gauge groups and to their linear or nonlinear action in field space. We focus on

Modular S4 and A4 symmetries and their fixed points: new predictive examples of lepton mixing

Abstract In the modular symmetry approach to neutrino models, the flavour symmetry emerges as a finite subgroup Γ N of the modular symmetry, broken by the vacuum expec- tation value (VEV) of a

Neutrino masses and mixing from double covering of finite modular groups

Abstract We extend the even weight modular forms of modular invariant approach to general integral weight modular forms. We find that the modular forms of integral weights and level N can be
