    A Novel Origin of CP Violation

    Full text link
    We propose the complex group theoretical Clebsch-Gordon coefficients as a novel origin of CP violation. This is manifest in our model based on SU(5) combined with the double tetrahedral group, T'. Due to the presence of the doublet representations in TT^{\prime}, there exist complex CG coefficients, leading to explicit CP violation in the model, while the Yukawa couplings and the vacuum expectation of the scalar fields remain real. The tri-bimaximal neutrino mixing matrix arises from the CG coefficients of the T'. In addition to the prediction for theta_{13} ~ theta_{c}/(3 sqrt{2}), the model gives rise to a sum rule, tan^2 theta_{sol} ~ \tan^2 theta_{sol,TBM} + (1/2) theta_{c} cos(delta), which is a consequence of the Georgi-Jarlskog relations in the charged fermion sector. The leptonic Dirac CP violating phase, delta_{ell}, is predicted to be ~227^{o}, which turns out to be the value needed to account for the difference between the experimental best fit value for the solar mixing angle and the TBM prediction. The predicted CP violation measures in the quark sector are also consistent with the current experimental data.Comment: 4 pages; based on talk presented at the 17th International Conference on Supersymmetry and the Unification of Fundamental Interactions (SUSY09), Boston, MA, June 5-10, 200

    Relating Leptogenesis to Low Energy CP Violation

    In the minimal left-right symmetric model with spontaneous CP violation, there are only two intrinsic CP violating phases to account for all CP violation in both the quark and lepton sectors. In addition, the left-and right-handed Majorana mass terms for the neutrinos are proportional to each other due to the parity in the model. This is thus a very constrained framework, making the existence of correlations among the CP violation in leptogenesis, neutrino oscillation and neutrinoless double beta decay possible.Comment: 4 pages; to appear in Proceedings of SUSY06, the 14th International Conference on Supersymmetry and the Unification of Fundamental Interactions, UC Irvine, California, 12-17 June 200
