Abstract

Recently, many authors showed that if the solar and atmospheric neutrino data are both described by maximal mixing vacuum oscillations at the relevant mass scale, then there exists a unique bimaximal lepton mixing matrix for three neutrino flavors. We construct the lepton mass matrices from the symmetry principle so that maximal mixings for the atmospheric and the solar neutrino vacuum oscillations are naturally generated. Although the hierarchical patterns of the lepton sector are quite different from each other, we show how two different mass matrices suggested in this work can be generated in a unified way. We also give comments on possible future tests of the bimaximal lepton mixing matrix.
