Recently, we proposed a unified mass matrix model for quarks and leptons, in which, mass ratios and mixings of the quarks and neutrinos are described by using only the observed charged lepton mass values as family-number-dependent parameters and only six family-number-independent free parameters. In spite of quite few parameters, the model gives remarkable agreement with observed data (i.e. Cabibbo–Kobayashi–Maskawa (CKM) mixing, Pontecorvo–Maki–Nakagawa–Sakata (PMNS) mixing and mass ratios…
