Flavor changing strings and domain walls

    Abstract

    We consider the cosmological consequences of a spontaneous breaking of non-Abelian discrete symmetries, which may appear as a natural remnant of a continuous symmetry, such as a family symmetry. The result may be a stable domain wall across which an electron would turn into a muon (or νe into νμ) or a flavor analog of an Alice string-domain-wall structure with the same property.
