  • We present a model for quark masses and mixing, featuring geometrical CP violation through a Δ(27) triplet. By employing a single U(1)F or ZN symmetry in addition to Δ(27), we forbid all terms in the scalar potential that would spoil the calculable phases the triplet acquires. The quark sector is realized by mimicking an existing scheme that reproduces the masses and CKM mixing, with the extra symmetry enabling the hierarchies in the Yukawa couplings through a Froggatt–Nielsen mechanism.
