Dynamical Yukawas

by Belen Gavela (UAM & IFT Madrid)

Friday, 22 February 2013 from to (Europe/Zurich)
at CERN ( 4-3-006 - TH Conference Room )
I will discuss the flavour panorama, comparing quarks with leptons, and the windows opened by neutrinos and future mu-e conversion experiments. On the more theoretical side, I will compare dynamical versus non-dynamical approaches to the origin of flavour. A dynamical origin of Yukawa couplings may generically predict at leading order a strong correlation between the Majorana character, large mixing and degenerate spectrum for neutrinos, while small mixing is favoured for quarks.
