# Modular symmetry and non-Abelian discrete flavor symmetries in string compactification

@article{Kobayashi2018ModularSA, title={Modular symmetry and non-Abelian discrete flavor symmetries in string compactification}, author={Tatsuo C. Kobayashi and Satoshi Nagamoto and Shintaro Takada and Shio Tamba and Takuya H. Tatsuishi}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2018} }

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. We also study the modular symmetry in heterotic orbifold models. The $T^2/Z_4$ orbifold model has the same modular symmetry as the magnetized brane model with $M=2$, and its flavor symmetry $D_4$ is a subgroup of the modular symmetry.
