The rank-one rotating mass matrix hypothesis: a general and a model specific study

Abstract:

In this thesis we investigate whether a rank-one rotating mass matrix extended to solve the strong CP problem can, through the mass leakage mechanism, account for fermion masses, mixing angles and a $theta_{CP}$ term of order unity. In the first part we find restrictions placed on the rotation of the rank-one mass matrix by experimental data. We demonstrate that a smooth rotation of the mass matrix can reproduce the experimentally determined fermion masses and mixing angles and give $the...
