(i) Different from the case where both of mass matrices of charged leptons and neutrinos are of the form of Fritzsch texture [28], the octant of [[theta].sub.23] is uncertain in our case.
(ii) Because of the strong mass hierarchy of charged leptons, the range of the Dirac CP violating phase is narrow, that is, 0[degrees] [+ or -] 50[degrees] or 180[degrees] [+ or -] 50[degrees].
Leptons do not participate in the strong interaction because their color charges are annihilated.
These rare collisions create the neutrino's electrically charged, massive sister lepton, which comes flying out with other debris.
About 3,500 times heavier than the electron, the tau lepton is a member of the same family of subatomic particles as the top and bottom quarks (SN: 7/1/95, p.10).
The W can then decay into a lighter quark and an antiquark or into a pair of leptons (an electron and electron neutrino or a muon and muon neutrino).
Unlike photons, Z particles interact directly with all known quarks and leptons, and they cleanly decay into a variety of particle-antiparticle pairs.
