Completing the eclectic flavor scheme of the ℤ2 orbifold

We present a detailed analysis of the eclectic flavor structure of the two-dimensional Z2 orbifold with its two unconstrained moduli T and U as well as SL(2,Z)T × SL(2,Z)U modular symmetry. This

CP symmetry and symplectic modular invariance

We analyze CP symmetry in symplectic modular-invariant supersymmetric theories. We show that for genus g ≥ 3 the definition of CP is unique, while two independent possibilities are allowed when g ≤

Modular invariant dynamics and fermion mass hierarchies around τ = i

Abstract We discuss fermion mass hierarchies within modular invariant flavour models. We analyse the neighbourhood of the self-dual point τ = i, where modular invariant theories possess a residual

Fermion mass hierarchies, large lepton mixing and residual modular symmetries

In modular-invariant models of flavour, hierarchical fermion mass matrices may arise solely due to the proximity of the modulus τ to a point of residual symmetry. This mechanism does not require

Modular Invariant $A_{4}$ Models for Quarks and Leptons with Generalized CP Symmetry

We perform a systematical analysis of the A 4 modular models with generalized CP for the masses and flavor mixing of quarks and leptons, and the most general form of the quark and lepton mass matrices

Leptogenesis in $SO(10)$ Models with $A_4$ Modular Symmetry

We study the prediction for leptogenesis in two renormalizable supersymmetric SO (10) × A 4 modular models in which the neutrino mass is dominantly generated by the type I seesaw mechanism. The

Residual flavor symmetry breaking in the landscape of modular flavor models

Abstract We study a symmetry breaking of residual flavor symmetries realized at fixed points of the moduli space. In the supersymmetric modular invariant theories, a small departure of the modulus

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

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



The eclectic flavor symmetry of the $\boldsymbol{\mathbb{Z}_2}$ orbifold

Modular symmetries naturally combine with traditional flavor symmetries and $\mathcal{CP}$, giving rise to the so-called eclectic flavor symmetry. We apply this scheme to the two-dimensional

CP violation and modular symmetries

We reconsider the origin of $\mathrm{CP}$ violation in fundamental theory. Existing string models of spontaneous $\mathrm{CP}$ violation make ambiguous predictions, due to the arbitrariness of

Multiple modular symmetries as the origin of flavor

We develop a general formalism for multiple moduli and their associated modular symmetries. We apply this formalism to an example based on three moduli with finite modular symmetries ${S}_{4}^{A}$,

Automorphic forms and fermion masses

We extend the framework of modular invariant supersymmetric theories to encompass invariance under more general discrete groups Γ, that allow the presence of several moduli and make connection with

Exploring the landscape of heterotic strings on Td

Compactifications of the heterotic string on T^d are the simplest, yet rich enough playgrounds to uncover swampland ideas: the U(1)^{d+16} left-moving gauge symmetry gets enhanced at special points
