Abstract
The standard model fermion spectrum, including a right handed neutrino,
can be obtained as a zeremode of the Dirac operator on a space
which is the product of complex projective spaces of complex dimension
two and three. The construction requires the introduction of topologically
nontrivial background gauge fields. By borrowing from ideas in Connes'
noncommutative geometry and making the complex spaces 'fuzzy' a matrix
approximation to the fuzzy space allows for three generations to
emerge. The generations are associated with three copies of spacetime.
Higgs' fields and Yukawa couplings can be accommodated in the usual
way.
