SO(10)×S4 Grand Unified Theory of Flavour and leptogenesis

SO(10)×S4 Grand Unified Theory of Flavour and leptogenesis
SO(10)×S4 Grand Unified Theory of Flavour and leptogenesis
We propose a Grand Unified Theory of Flavour, based on $SO(10)$ together with a non-Abelian discrete group $S_4$, under which the unified three quark and lepton 16-plets are unified into a single triplet $3'$. The model involves a further discrete group $ \mathbb{Z}_4^R\times \mathbb{Z}_4^3$ which controls the Higgs and flavon symmetry breaking sectors. The CSD2 flavon vacuum alignment is discussed, along with the GUT breaking potential and the doublet-triplet splitting, and proton decay is shown to be under control. The Yukawa matrices are derived in detail, from renormalisable diagrams, and neutrino masses emerge from the type I seesaw mechanism. A full numerical fit is performed with 15 input parameters generating 19 presently constrained observables, taking into account supersymmetry threshold corrections. The model predicts a normal neutrino mass ordering with a CP oscillation phase of $260^{\circ}$, an atmospheric angle in the first octant and neutrinoless double beta decay with $m_{\beta \beta}= 11$ meV. We discuss $N_2$ leptogenesis, which fixes the second right-handed neutrino mass to be $M_2\simeq 2\times 10^{11}$ GeV, in the natural range predicted by the model.

Abstract

We propose a Grand Unified Theory of Flavour, based on $SO(10)$ together with a non-Abelian discrete group $S_4$, under which the unified three quark and lepton 16-plets are unified into a single triplet $3'$. The model involves a further discrete group $ \mathbb{Z}_4^R\times \mathbb{Z}_4^3$ which controls the Higgs and flavon symmetry breaking sectors. The CSD2 flavon vacuum alignment is discussed, along with the GUT breaking potential and the doublet-triplet splitting, and proton decay is shown to be under control. The Yukawa matrices are derived in detail, from renormalisable diagrams, and neutrino masses emerge from the type I seesaw mechanism. A full numerical fit is performed with 15 input parameters generating 19 presently constrained observables, taking into account supersymmetry threshold corrections. The model predicts a normal neutrino mass ordering with a CP oscillation phase of $260^{\circ}$, an atmospheric angle in the first octant and neutrinoless double beta decay with $m_{\beta \beta}= 11$ meV. We discuss $N_2$ leptogenesis, which fixes the second right-handed neutrino mass to be $M_2\simeq 2\times 10^{11}$ GeV, in the natural range predicted by the model.
