Title: Yukawa hierarchies from split fermions in extra dimensions

Abstract

We explore a mechanism for generating the Yukawa hierarchies by displacing the left- and right-handed components of the standard model fermions in a higher-dimensional space. We find a unique configuration of displacements which fits all quark and lepton masses and mixing angles, with a prediction for the strange quark mass m{sub s}{sup MS}(2 GeV){approx_equal}(1.19)x(V{sub ub}V{sub cb}/V{sub us}){sup 1/2}xm{sub b}{sup MS}(m{sub b}){approx_equal}120 MeV. (c) 2000 The American Physical Society.
