We begin an exploration of the physics associated with the general CP-conserving MSSM with Minimal Flavor Violation, the pMSSM. The 19 soft SUSY breaking parameters in this scenario are chosen so asâ€¦ (More)

We explore the consequences of placing the Standard Model gauge fields in the bulk of the recently proposed localized gravity model of Randall and Sundrum. We find that the Kaluza Klein excitationsâ€¦ (More)

Recent theoretical results have demonstrated that non-commutative geometries naturally appear within the context of string/M-theory. One consequence of this possibility is that QED takes on aâ€¦ (More)

The elementary particles of the standard model may reside in more than 3 11 dimensions. We study the consequences of large compactified dimensions on scattering and decay observables at high-energyâ€¦ (More)

In a recent string theory motivated paper, Nicolini, Smailagic and Spallucci (NSS) presented an interesting model for a noncommutative inspired, Schwarzschild-like black hole solution inâ€¦ (More)

The phenomenology of the Randall-Sundrum model of localized gravity is analyzed in detail for the two scenarios where the Standard Model (SM) gauge and matter fields are either confined to a TeVâ€¦ (More)

We examine the experimental signatures for the production of gluinos at colliders and in cosmic rays within the split supersymmetry scenario. Unlike in the MSSM, the gluinos in this model areâ€¦ (More)

In the Universal Extra Dimensions model of Appelquist, Cheng and Dobrescu, all of the Standard Model fields are placed in the bulk and thus have Kaluza-Klein(KK) excitations. These KK states can onlyâ€¦ (More)

A brief pedagogical overview of the phenomenology of Zâ€™ gauge bosons is presented. Such particles can arise in various electroweak extensions of the Standard Model (SM). We provide a quick survey ofâ€¦ (More)

We examine the properties of TeV-scale extra dimensional black holes (BH) in RandallSundrum-like models with Gauss-Bonnet higher-curvature terms present in the action. These theories naturally leadâ€¦ (More)
