Flavor and CP from String Theory
Modular transformations of string theory are shown to play a crucial role in the discussion of discrete flavor symmetries in the Standard Model. They include CP transformations and provide a

The framework of compactified heterotic string theory offers consistent ultraviolet (UV) comple-tions of the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics. In this approach, the existence of flavor symmetries
Residual flavor symmetry breaking in the landscape of modular flavor models
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 from fixed
Generalized Matter Parities from Finite Modular Symmetries
We classify a supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model by discrete symmetries originating from finite modular symmetries ΓN . Since all the couplings in supersymmetric theories of finite
Modular flavor symmetry on a magnetized torus
We study the modular invariance in magnetized torus models. The modular invariant flavor model is a recently proposed hypothesis for solving the flavor puzzle, where the flavor symmetry originates
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
Fermion mass hierarchies from modular symmetry
We show how quark and lepton mass hierarchies can be reproduced in the framework of modular symmetry. The mechanism is analogous to the Froggatt-Nielsen (FN) mechanism, but without requiring any


Modular symmetry and non-Abelian discrete flavor symmetries in string compactification
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.
CP and other Symmetries of Symmetries
Outer automorphisms of symmetries (``symmetries of symmetries'') in relativistic quantum field theories are studied, including charge conjugation (C), space-reflection (P) , and time-reversal (T)

We explore a new class of supersymmetric models for lepton masses and mixing angles where the role of flavour symmetry is played by modular invariance. The building blocks are modular forms of level
Origin of family symmetries
Discrete (family) symmetries might play an important role in models of elementary particle physics. We discuss the origin of such symmetries in the framework of consistent ultraviolet completions of
Modular A5 symmetry for flavour model building
A bstractIn the framework of the modular symmetry approach to lepton flavour, we consider a class of theories where matter superfields transform in representations of the finite modular group Γ5 ≃
