Abstract

We consider the A4, S4 and A5 discrete lepton flavor symmetries broken down to nontrivial residual symmetries in the charged lepton and neutrino sectors in such a way that at least one of them is a Z2. Such symmetry breaking patterns lead to predictions for some of the three neutrino mixing angles and/or the Dirac CP violation phase δ of the neutrino mixing matrix. First, we perform a statistical analysis of these predictions, which uses as input the latest global data on the neutrino mixing parameters. We find 14 phenomenologically viable cases. Further, we assess the viability of these cases taking into account the prospective uncertainties in the determination of the mixing angles, planned to be achieved in current and future neutrino oscillation experiments. We find that only six cases would be compatible with the assumed prospective data. We show that this number will be further reduced by a precision measurement of δ.
