We use nonlinear realizations to describe the spontaneous breaking of N = 2 su-persymmetry to N = 1 in four dimensions. We identify the Goldstone multiplet with an N = 1 chiral superfield, and show that chiral N = 1 matter is consistent with the partially broken N = 2 supersymmetry. We find that the chiral matter can be in any representation of the gauge… (More)
We summarize the results obtained by the Supersymmetry Working Group at the 1996 Snowmass Workshop.
We study the gold-plated purely leptonic signal and background rates at the LHC for the ZZ, W + W − , W ± Z and W ± W ± final states associated with strongly interacting electroweak symmetry breaking. We work at an energy of √ s = 14 TeV, and develop a combination of back-to-back leptonic, central-jet-vetoing and forward-jet-tagging cuts that suppresses the… (More)
In this paper we survey the signals and backgrounds for a strongly-interacting electroweak symmetry breaking sector at hadron supercolliders in the TeV region. We study the process pp → W W X, and compute the rates for the " gold-plated " channels, where W ± → ℓ ± ν and Z → ℓ + ℓ − (ℓ = e, µ), for a wide variety of models. Using a forward jet-tag, a central… (More)
The incretin effect on insulin secretion was investigated in 8 subjects with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and 8 with normal glucose tolerance (NGT), using 25, 75, and 125 g oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTT) and isoglycemic intravenous glucose infusions (IIGI). The ß-cell response was evaluated using a model embedding a dose-response (slope=glucose sensitivity),… (More)
We compute the full set of weak-scale gauge and Yukawa threshold corrections in the minimal supersymmetric standard model, and use them to study the effects of the supersymmetric particle spectrum on gauge and Yukawa coupling unification.
I review new developments in Higgs physics and electroweak symmetry breaking that have resulted from the Madison–Argonne workshops on SSC physics.
Anterior tibial translation was measured in six patients with anterior cruciate ligament insufficiency. The tests were done in 15, 45, and 90 degrees of knee flexion, partly with activated quadriceps or hamstrings, and partly with subjects wearing a 4-point functional DonJoy brace. The translation was evaluated with a computerized electrogoniometer (Acufex… (More)
