We assume The lepton mass matrix,can be diagonalized by rotating the left-handed lepton by the unitary matrix The neutrino mass matrix is diagonalized with unitary matrix :
Decomposing we get Mixing matrix in the charged lepton sector is and Then the becomes ( symmetric)
The remainingcan be obtained by can be diagonalized with unitary matrix : After getting, we can compare it with the standard parametrization

Conclusion We studied a triplet Higgs model to generate Majorana neutrino masses and the mixing matrix in the framework of A_4 symmetry. The tribimaximal form of the neutrino mixing matrix can be naturally obtained. Only the normal mass hierarchy is allowed.
There is a lower bound on the lightest neutrino mass :, although it is too small to be probed in the near future experiments. However, there is no lower limit in the effective mass parameter of neutrinoless double beta decay. Our model can explain the neutrino oscillation data without fine-tuning.
