# $SO(10)$ Grand Unification from $M$ theory on a $G_2$ manifold

@article{Romo2015SO10GU, title={\$SO(10)\$ Grand Unification from \$M\$ theory on a \$G\_2\$ manifold}, author={M. Crispim Rom{\~a}o}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology}, year={2015} }

We consider Grand Unified Theories based on $SO(10)$ which originate from $M$ theory on $G_2$ manifolds. In this framework we are naturally led to a novel solution of the doublet-triplet splitting problem involving an extra $\overline{{\bf 16}}_X+{\bf 16}_X$ vector-like pair by considering discrete symmetries of the extra dimensions and preserving unification. Since Wilson line breaking preserves the rank of the gauge group, the necessary $U(1)$ gauge breaking is generated from extra multiplets…

We propose a Minimal E6 Supersymmetric Standard Model (ME6SSM) which allows Planck scale unification, provides a solution to the ? problem and predicts a new Z'. Above the conventional GUT scale MGUT…

Theory and phenomenology of μ in M theory

- Physics

We consider a solution to the μ-problem within M theory on a G2-manifold. Our study is based upon the discrete symmetry proposed by Witten that forbids the μ-term and solves the doublet-triplet…
