Title: Splitting between up-type and down-type quark masses via mixing with exotic fermions in E{sub 6}

Abstract

The average masses of (d,s,b) quarks are smaller than those of (u,c,t) quarks. In contrast with mechanisms relying on different Higgs boson vacuum expectation values or different Yukawa couplings, this mass difference is explained as a consequence of mixing of (d,s,b) with exotic quarks implied by the electroweak-strong unification group E{sub 6}. (c) 2000 The American Physical Society.
