"A new approach to quark and lepton masses is proposed: the mass spectra originate in vacuum expectation values of U(3) flavor nonet (gauge singlet) scalars. As an offshoot of this approach, we find an empirical neutrino mass matrix which is described in terms of the up-quark and charged lepton masses and which leads to a nearly tribimaximal mixing without assuming any discrete symmetry."
