We study bulk fermion fields in the localized gravity model with non-factorizable metric recently proposed by Randall and Sundrum, and Gogberashvili. In addition to a tower of weak-scale Kaluza–Klein states we find a zero mode for any value of the fundamental fermion mass. If the fermion mass is larger than half the curvature of the compact dimension, the zero mode can be localized on the “hidden” 3-brane in the Randall–Sundrum model. Identifying this mode with a right-handed neutrino provides… Expand

Fermion Masses, Mixings and Proton Decay in a Randall-Sundrum Model
We consider a Randall–Sundrum model in which the Standard Model fermions and gauge bosons correspond to bulk fields. We show how the observed charged fermion masses and CKM mixings can be explained,Expand
