Title: 
Residual symmetries for quark and lepton mixing matrices
Abstract: 
We seek possible residual symmetries in lepton and quark sectors with Abelian Zn symmetry for each sector. For the lepton sector, necessary conditions for ensuring that the inherent symmetries Z_2xZ_2 for neutrino and Zm for charged lepton can be embedded into a single discrete group. For quark sector, we begin with two extreme cases in which both θ13 and θ2 3 or only θ13 are set to zero. Then, cases where all the Cabibbo-Kobayashi- Maskawa parameters are allowed to take nonzero values are explored. On the o ther hand, larger groups are necessary in order to be consistent with all th e mixing parameters. Possibilities of embedding the obtained residual symmet ries into the ∆(6N2) series are also briefly discussed.
