The Hierarchy problem and new dimensions at a millimeter
Abstract We propose a new framework for solving the hierarchy problem which does not rely on either supersymmetry or technicolor. In this framework, the gravitational and gauge interactions becomeExpand
Softly Broken Supersymmetry and SU(5)
We construct an explicit realistic SU(5) model in which softly broken supersymmetry is used to protect the Higgs doublets from quadratic mass renormalization. The model requires one natural butExpand
Supersymmetric unification without low energy supersymmetry and signatures for fine-tuning at the LHC
The cosmological constant problem is a failure of naturalness and suggests that a fine-tuning mechanism is at work, which may also address the hierarchy problem. An example — supported by Weinberg'sExpand
New dimensions at a millimeter to a Fermi and superstrings at a TeV
Abstract Recently, a new framework for solving the hierarchy problem has been proposed which does not rely on low energy supersymmetry or technicolor. The gravitational and gauge interactions uniteExpand
The presence of many axion fields in four-dimensional string vacua can lead to a simple, radiatively stable realization of chaotic inflation.
Phenomenology, astrophysics and cosmology of theories with submillimeter dimensions and TeV scale quantum gravity
We recently proposed a solution to the hierarchy problem not relying on low-energy supersymmetry or technicolor. Instead, the problem is nullified by bringing quantum gravity down to the TeV scale.Expand
String Axiverse
String theory suggests the simultaneous presence of many ultralight axions, possibly populating each decade of mass down to the Hubble scale 10−33eV. Conversely the presence of such a plenitude ofExpand
A Small cosmological constant from a large extra dimension
We propose a new approach to the Cosmological Constant Problem which makes essential use of an extra dimension. A model is presented in which the Standard Model vacuum energy “warps” theExpand
Aspects of Split Supersymmetry
We explore some fundamental differences in the phenomenology, cosmology and model building of Split Supersymmetry compared with traditional low-scale supersymmetry. We show how the mass spectrum ofExpand
