Discrete Minimal Flavour Violation.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We investigate the consequences of replacing the continuous flavour symmetry of minimal flavour violation by a discrete group. Goldstone bosons, resulting from the breaking of the continuous flavour symmetry, generically lead to bounds on new flavour structure by many orders of magnitude above the TeV-scale. The absence of Goldstone bosons for discrete symmetries constitutes the primary motivation of our work. The four crystal-like groups Sigma(168), Sigma(72phi), Sigma(216phi) and Sigma(360phi)$ provide enough protection for a discrete TeV-scale MFV scenario in the case where Delta F = 2 processes are generated by two subsequent Delta F = 1 transitions.
