    We consider the generation of the hierarchical charged lepton spectrum and anarchic neutrino masses and mixing angles in warped extra dimensional models with Randall-Sundrum metric. We have classified all possible cases giving rise to realistic spectra for both Dirac and Majorana neutrinos. An anarchic neutrino spectrum requires a convenient bulk symmetry broken by boundary conditions on both UV and IR branes. We have in particular considered the case of Majorana neutrinos with a continuous bulk symmetry. To avoid unwanted massless extra gauge bosons the 4D group should be empty. If the 4D coset is not vanishing it can provide a Wilson Line description of the neutrino Majorana mass matrix. We have studied an example based on the bulk gauge group U(3)ℓ ⊗ U(3)N ⊗i U(1)εi with the Wilson Line in SO(3)N satisfying all required conditions. A χ2-fit to experimental data exhibits 95% CL region in the parameter space with no fine- tuning. As a consequence of the symmetries of the theory there is no tree-level induced lepton flavor violation and so one-loop processes are consistent with experimental data forKK-modes about a few TeV. The model is easily generalizable to models with IR deformed metrics with similar conclusions. © 2013 SISSA.
