# Flavor structures of charged fermions and massive neutrinos

@article{Xing2020FlavorSO, title={Flavor structures of charged fermions and massive neutrinos}, author={Zhi-zhong Xing}, journal={Physics Reports}, year={2020} }

Most of the free parameters in the Standard Model (SM) --- a quantum field theory which has successfully elucidated the behaviors of strong, weak and electromagnetic interactions of all the known fundamental particles, come from the lepton and quark flavors. The discovery of neutrino oscillations has proved that the SM is incomplete, at least in its lepton sector; and thus the door of opportunity is opened to exploring new physics beyond the SM and solving a number of flavor puzzles. In this… Expand
