Neutrino masses and mixings in a minimal SO (10) model
Abstract
We consider a minimal formulation of SO(10) grand unified theory wherein all the fermion masses arise from Yukawa couplings involving one 126 and one 10 of Higgs multiplets. It has recently been recognized that such theories can explain, via the typeII seesaw mechanism, the large {nu}{sub {mu}}{nu}{sub {tau}} mixing as a consequence of b{tau} unification at the grand unified theory scale. In this picture, however, the CabibboKobayashiMaskawa quarkmixing matrix phase {delta} lies preferentially in the second quadrant, in contradiction with experimental measurements. We revisit this minimal model and show that the conventional typeI seesaw mechanism generates phenomenologically viable neutrino masses and mixings, while being consistent with CabibboKobayashiMaskawa quarkmixing matrix CP violation. We also present improved fits in the typeII seesaw scenario and suggest fully consistent fits in a mixed scenario.

A supersymmetric SO(10)xA{sub 4} grand unified theory model is constructed for fermion masses and mixing by introducing a minimal set of low dimensional Higgs representations needed to break the gauge symmetry down to SU(3){sub c}xU(1){sub em}. The hierarchy of fermion masses can be understood in the framework of A{sub 4} symmetry. From the A{sub 4}invariant superpotential, the 'double lopsided' mass matrices for the charged leptons and the down quarks are obtained. It is shown that this structure simultaneously leads to bilarge neutrino mixings and small CabibboKobayashiMaskawa mixing angles. An excellent fit to the masses and mixings of the quarks andmore »

Neutrino masses and mixings in a Minimal S3invariant Extension of the Standard Model
The mass matrices of the charged leptons and neutrinos, that had been derived in the framework of a Minimal S3invariant Extension of the Standard Model, are here reparametrized in terms of their eigenvalues. The neutrino mixing matrix, VPMNS, is then computed and exact, explicit analytical expressions for the neutrino mixing angles as functions of the masses of the neutrinos and charged leptons are obtained. The reactor, {theta}13, and the atmosferic, {theta}23, mixing angles are found to be functions only of the masses of the charged leptons. The numerical values of {theta}{sub 13}{sup th} and {theta}{sub 23}{sup th} computed from ourmore » 
Fermion masses and mixings in SO(10) models and the neutrino challenge to supersymmetric grand unified theories
We present a detailed study of the quark and lepton mass spectra in a SO(10) framework with one 10{sub H} and one 126{sub H} Higgs representations in the Yukawa sector. We consider in full generality the interplay between type I and type II seesaw for neutrino masses. We first perform a {chi}{sup 2} fit of fermion masses independent on the structure of the GUT Higgs potential and determine the regions of the parameter space that are preferred by the fermion mass sum rules. We then apply our study to the case of the minimal renormalizable SUSY SO(10) GUT with onemore » 
{ital CP} violation, fermion masses and mixings in a predictive SUSY SO(10){times}{Delta}(48){times}U(1) model with small tan{beta}
Fermion masses and mixing angles are studied in an SUSY SO(10){times}{Delta}(48){times}U(1) model with small tan{beta}. Thirteen parameters involving masses and mixing angles in the quark and charged lepton sector are successfully predicted by a single Yukawa coupling and three ratios of VEV{close_quote}s caused by necessary symmetry breaking. Ten relations among the low energy parameters have been found with four of them free from renormalization modifications. They could be tested directly by low energy experiments. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.} 
An SO(10) × SO(10)' model for common origin of neutrino masses, ordinary and dark matterantimatter asymmetries
We propose an SO(10) × SO(10)' model to simultaneously realize a seesaw for Dirac neutrino masses and a leptogenesis for ordinary and dark matterantimatter asymmetries. A (16 × 1bar 6bar '){sub H} scalar crossing the SO(10) and SO(10)' sectors plays an essential role in this seesawleptogenesis scenario. As a result of lepton number conservation, the lightest dark nucleon as the dark matter particle should have a determined mass around 15 GeV to explain the comparable fractions of ordinary and dark matter in the present universe. The (16 × 1bar 6bar '){sub H} scalar also mediates a U(1){sub em} × U(1)'{submore »
