**1. Introduction Now, we have lots of 4D string models leading to**

(semi-)realistic massless spectra such as SU(3)xSU(2)xU(1) gauge groups, three chiral genenations, vector-like matter fields and lots of singlets with and without chiral exotic fields, e.g. in heterotic models, type II intersecting D-brane models, type II magnetized D-brane models, etc. What about their 4D low-energy effective theories ? Are they realistic ? What about the quark/lepton masses and mixing angles ?

3
**4D low-energy effective field theory**

We have to control couplings in 4D LEEFT. realization of quark/lepton mass and mixing including the neutrino sector, avoiding the fast proton decay, stability of the LSP, suppressing FCNC, etc Abelian and non-Abelian discrete symmetries are useful in low-energy model building to control them. 3

4
**Abelian discrete symmetries**

ZN symmetry R-symmetric and non-R-symmetric Flavor symmetry R-parity, matter parity, baryon triality, proton hexality 4

5
**Non-Abelian discrete flavor symm.**

Recently, in field-theoretical model building, several types of discrete flavor symmetries have been proposed with showing interesting results, e.g. S3, D4, A4, S4, Q6, Δ(27),Δ(54), Review: e.g Ishimori, T.K., Ohki, Okada, Shimizu, Tanimoto ‘10 ⇒ large mixing angles in the lepton sector one Ansatz: tri-bimaximal 5

6
**String-derived 4D LEEFT**

Can we derive these Abelian and non-Abelian discrete symmetries from string theory ? Which symmetires can appear in 4D LEEFT derived from string theory ? One can compute couplings of 4D LEEFT in string theory. (These are functions of moduli.) Control on anomalies is one of stringy features. What about anomalies of discrete symmetries ? In this talk, we study heterotic orbifold models. 6

**2. Abelian discrete symmetries**

coupling selection rule A string can be specified by its boundary condition. Two strings can be connected to become a string if their boundary conditions fit each other. symmetry

8
**Heterotic orbifold models**

S1/Z2 Orbifold There are two singular points, which are called fixed points.

9
**Orbifolds T2/Z3 Orbifold There are three fixed points on Z3 orbifold**

(0,0), (2/3,1/3), (1/3,2/3) su(3) root lattice Orbifold = D-dim. Torus /twist Torus = D-dim flat space/ lattice

10
**Closed strings on orbifold**

Untwisted and twisted strings Twisted strings are associated with fixed points. “Brane-world” terminology: untwisted sector bulk modes twisted sector brane (localized) modes

16
**3. Non-Abelian discrete symmetries Heterotic orbifold models**

S1/Z2 Orbifold String theory has two Z2’s. In addition, the Z2 orbifold has the geometrical symmetry, i.e. Z2 permutation.

17
D4 Flavor Symmetry Stringy symmetries require that Lagrangian has the permutation symmetry between 1 and 2, and each coupling is controlled by two Z2 symmetries. Flavor symmeties: closed algebra S2 U(Z2xZ2) D4 elements modes on two fixed points ⇒ doublet untwisted (bulk) modes ⇒ singlet Geometry of compact space origin of finite flavor symmetry Abelian part (Z2xZ2) : coupling selection rule S2 permutation : one coupling is the same as another.

**4. Discrete anomalies 4-1. Abelian discrete anomalies**

Symmetry violated quantum effects U(1)-G-G anomalies anomaly free condition ZN-G-G anomalies anomaly free condition

22
**Abelian discrete anomalies: path integral**

Zn transformation path integral measure ZN-G-G anomalies anomaly free condition

23
**Heterotic orbifold models**

There are two types of Abelian discrete symmetries. T2/Z3 Orbifold two Z3’s One is originated from twists, the other is originated from shifts. Both types of discrete anomalies are universal for different groups G. Araki, T.K., Kubo, Ramos-Sanches, Ratz,Vaudrevange, ‘08

24
**Heterotic orbifold models**

U(1)-G-G anomalies are universal for different groups G. 4D Green-Schwarz mechanism due to a single axion (dilaton), which couples universally with gauge sectors. ZN-G-G anomalies may also be cancelled by 4D GS mechanism. There is a certain relations between U(1)-G-G and ZN-G-G anomalies, anomalous U(1) generator is a linear combination of anomalous ZN generators. Araki, T.K., Kubo, Ramos-Sanches, Ratz,Vaudrevange, ‘08

25
**4-2. Non-Abelian discrete anomalies**

Araki, T.K., Kubo, Ramos-Sanches, Ratz, Vaudrevange, ‘08 Non-Abelian discrete group finite elements Each element generates an Abelian symmetry. We check ZN-G-G anomalies for each element. All elements are free from ZN-G-G anomalies. The full symmetry G is anomaly-free. Some ZN symmetries for elements gk are anomalous. The remaining symmetry corresponds to the closed algebra without such elements.

26
**Non-Abelian discrete anomalies**

matter fields = multiplets under non-Abelian discrete symmetry Each element is represented by a matrix on the multiplet. Such a multiplet does not contribute to ZN-G-G anomalies. String models lead to certain combinations of multiplets. limited pattern of non-Abelian discrete anomalies

27
**Heterotic string on Z2 orbifold: D4 Flavor Symmetry**

Flavor symmeties: closed algebra S2 U(Z2xZ2) modes on two fixed points ⇒ doublet untwisted (bulk) modes ⇒ singlet The first Z2 is always anomaly-free, while the others can be anomalous. However, it is simple to arrange models such that the full D4 remains. e.g. left-handed and right-handed quarks/leptons 1 + 2 Such a pattern is realized in explicit models.

28
**Heterotic models on Z3 orbifold**

two Z3’s Z3 orbifold has the S3 geometrical symmetry, Their closed algebra is Δ(54). The full symmetry except Z2 is always anomaly-free. That is, the Δ(27) is always anomaly-free. Abe, et. al. work in progress

29
**5. Explicit stringy computation**

T.K., Parameswaran,Ramos-Sanchez, Zavala ‘11 Explicit string computations tell something more. Heterotic string on orbifold: 4D string, E8xE8 gauge part, r-moving fermionic string, 6D string on orbifold, ghost A mode has a definite “quantum number” in each part.

30
Vertex operators Boson Fermion

31
**3-pt correlation function**

Vertex operators: The correlation function vanishes unless That is the momentum conservation in the string of the gauge part, i.e. the gauge invariance.

32
**String on 6D orbifold The 6D part is quite non-trivial.**

world-sheet instanton + quantum part 32

33
**Classical solution The world-sheet instanton, which**

corresponds to string moving from a fixed point to others.

34
**symmetries of torus (sub)lattice**

Suppose that only holomorphic instanton can appear. Example: T2/Z3 different fixed points Z3 symmetries (twist invariance) twist invariance + H-momentum conservation => discrete R-symmetry 34

35
**symmetries of torus (sub)lattice**

Suppose that only holomorphic instanton can appear. Example: T2/Z3 three strings on the same fixed points Z6 symmetries enhanced symmetries for certain couplings Rule 4 Font, Ibanez, Nilles, Quevedo, ’88 T.K., Parameswaran,Ramos-Sanchez, Zavala ‘11 35

36
**T2/Z3 orbifold Higher order couplings The situation is the same.**

Z3 symmetries among localized strings on different fixed points Z6 symmetries among localized strings on a fixed point Z6 enhanced symmetries only for the couplings of the same fixed points. => Z3 twist invarince if the matter on the different fixed points is included 36

37
**Classical solution T2/Z2**

Similarly, the classical solution corresponding to couplings on the same fixed points has enhanced symmetires, e.g. Z4 and Z6, depending the torus lattice, SO(5) torus and SU(3) torus. T.K., Parameswaran,Ramos-Sanchez, Zavala ‘11 37

38
**String on 6D orbifold The 6D part is quite non-trivial.**

world-sheet instanton + quantum part Only instantons with fine-valued action contribute. That leads to certain conditions on combinations among twists. T.K., Parameswaran,Ramos-Sanchez, Zavala ‘11 38

39
**(anti-) Holomorphic instanton**

Condition for fine-valued action Vertex operators: 39

40
**Summary We have studied discrete symmetries and their anomalies.**

Explicit stringy computations tell something more. String-derived massless spectra are (semi-) realistic, but their 4D LEEFT are not so, e.g. derivation of quark/lepton masses and mixing angles are still challenging. Applications of the above discrete symmetires and explicit stringy computations would be important.
