The origin of the masses of the elementary matter particles (quarks and leptons) is one of the most compelling and mysterious questions in high energy physics. The discovery of neutrino oscillations and the subsequent measurements of neutrino mass-squared differences and lepton mixing angles over the past two decades has reinvigorated the quest to elucidate the underlying physics that resolves this so-called "flavor puzzle" of particle physics. This talk will provide an overview of the theoretical approaches to the flavor puzzle, with a focus on the ways in which the neutrino sector measurements have challenged and extended the basic paradigms for understanding the mystery of quark and lepton masses.
