# A local evaluation of global issues in SUSY breaking

@article{Alwis2012ALE, title={A local evaluation of global issues in SUSY breaking}, author={Senarath P. de Alwis}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2012}, volume={2013}, pages={1-15} }

A bstractIt is well known that there are different global (i.e. MP → ∞) limits of N = 1 supergravity. We distinguish between these limits and their relevance to low energy phenomenology. We discuss a) fermion mass matrices and recently proved theorems in global SUSY b) stability issues and SUSY breaking d) R-symmetry and a recently derived bound on the superpotential and e) FI terms in global and local SUSY.
