Minimal model for fermion mass hierarchies

This paper constructs two examples of gauge theories with non-universal flavor interactions that can explain the observed quark and lepton mass spectra without unnaturally small couplings. The models have additional heavy vector bosons at two high mass scales that sequentially break the non-universal gauge symmetries. The lighter scale, associated with the masses of the second generation fermions, may be as low as 10 TeV. Both models are extended to incorporate neutrino masses.
