Description

I will present recent work on the flavor structure in Universal Extra Dimensions (UED) with KK-parity. Specifically I will show how to construct a realistic model of fermion mass hierachies using loaclization of the wave functions in the extra dimesion. I will estimate the flavor bounds due to FCNCs and show that a lowering of the flavor scale requires mimicking a RS model with a double throat, in which the UV brane has been integrated out.
