Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
Flavor Symmetries and Lepton Mixing in Light of Non-Vanishing theta13
Time: 4:00 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin
Speaker: Claudia Hagedorn, INFN, Padua and the University of Padua
Abstract: I will first discuss the new experimental results indicating non-vanishing theta13 and then emphasize the implications for models using flavor symmetries to predict a specific mixing pattern. I will explain in some detail the origin of flavor mixing from non-trivially broken discrete symmetries. At the end I may give a brief overview of other ideas recently proposed in order to accommodate values of theta13 around 0.1.
