AbstractIn F-theory GUT constructions Yukawa couplings necessarily take place at the intersection of three matter curves. For generic geometric configurations this gives rise to problematic Yukawa couplings unable to reproduce the observed hierarchies. We point out that if the U(1)B−L/U(1)Y flux breaking the SO(10)/SU(5) GUT symmetry is allowed to go through pairs of matter curves with the same GUT representation, the quark/lepton content is redistributed in such a way that all quark and leptons are allowed to have hierarchical Yukawas. This reshuffling of fermions is quite unique and is particularly elegant for the case of three generations and SO(10). Specific local F-theory models with SO(10) or SU(5) living on a del Pezzo surface with appropriate bundles and just the massless content of the MSSM are described. We point out that the smallness of the 3rd generation quark mixing predicted by this scheme (together with gauge coupling unification) could constitute a first hint of an underlying F-theory grand unification.
