Footprints of SUSY GUTs in flavour physics

Supersymmetric (SUSY) Grand Unified theories (GUTs) generally predict FCNC and CP violating processes to occur both in the leptonic and hadronic sectors. Assuming an underlying SU(5) group plus

Probing the MSSM flavor structure with low energy CP violation

We report on an extensive analysis of FCNC and CPV effects in SUSY theories. We present results for ΔF = 2 and ΔF = 1 processes governed by b → s transitions both in the low and high tan β regime,

Phenomenological Implications of an S4 x SU(5) SUSY GUT of Flavour

We discuss the low energy phenomenological implications of an SU(5) Supersymmetric Grand Unified Theory (SUSY GUT) whose flavour structure is controlled by the family symmetry S4 x U(1), which

The supersymmetric flavour problem in 5D GUTs and its consequences for LHC phenomenology

A bstractWe study supersymmetric models with a GUT-sized extra dimension, where both the Higgs fields and the SUSY breaking hidden sector are localized on a 4D brane. Exponential wave function

Anatomy and Phenomenology of Flavor and CP Violation in Supersymmetric Theories

We present a systematic analysis of flavor and CP violating low energy processes in the framework of the MSSM, the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model. We discuss in detail the

The anatomy of neutral scalars with FCNCs in the flavour precision era

A bstractIn many extensions of the Standard Model (SM) flavour changing neutral current (FCNC) processes can be mediated by tree-level heavy neutral scalars and/or pseudo-scalars H0(A0). This

Phenomenology of CP Violation in a Flavor Blind MSSM and Beyond

We present an analysis of low energy CP violating observables in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). We focus on the predictions of CP violation in b→s transitions in the framework of a

Higgs-mediated FCNCs: natural flavour conservation vs. minimal flavour violation

We compare the effectiveness of two hypotheses, Natural Flavour Conservation (NFC) and Minimal Flavour Violation (MFV), in suppressing the strength of flavour-changing neutral-currents (FCNCs) in

Beyond MFV in family symmetry theories of fermion masses

Minimal Flavour Violation (MFV) postulates that the only source of flavour changing neutral currents and CP violation, as in the Standard Model, is the CKM matrix. However it does not address the



General flavor blind MSSM and CP violation

We study the implications on flavor changing neutral current and CP violating processes in the context of supersymmetric theories without a new flavor structure (flavor blind supersymmetry). The

EDM constraints on flavored CP-violating phases

Probing Yukawa unification with K and B mixing

We consider corrections to the unification of down-quark and charged-lepton Yukawa couplings in supersymmetric GUTs, which links the large ντ−νμ mixing angle to b → s transitions. These corrections

The MFV limit of the MSSM for low tan β: meson mixings revisited

We apply the effective field theory definition of Minimal Flavour Violation (MFV) to the MSSM. We explicitly show how, by this definition, the new sources of flavour and CP violation present in the

Solving the SUSY flavour and CP problems with SU(3) family symmetry

We show how the SUSY flavour and CP problems can be solved using gauged SU(3) family symmetry previously introduced to describe quark and lepton masses and mixings, in particular neutrino
