Title A dynamical mechanism for quark mixing and neutrino oscillations
Abstract We show that assuming fermion generations to be given by a gauge symmetry plus a Higgs mechanism for its breaking, the known empirical features of quark and lepton mixing can be largely explained, including in particular the fact that the mixing (CKM) matrix element Umuon3 responsible for the muon anomaly in atmospheric neutrinos is near maximal and much larger than their quark counterparts Vcb and Vts, while the corner elements for both quarks (Vub, Vtd) and leptons (Ue3) are all very small. The mechanism also gives automatically a hierarchical form fermion mass spectrum which is intimately related to the mixing pattern
