Abstract Supersymmetry breaking in string perturbation theory predicts the existence of a new dimension at the TeV scale. The simplest realization of the minimal supersymmetric standard model in the context of this mechanism has two important consequences: (i) A natural solution to the μ-problem; (ii) The absence of quadratic divergences in the cosmological constant, which leads to a dynamical determination of the supersymmetry breaking and electroweak scale. We present an explicit example in… 
Limits on extra dimensions in orbifold compactifications of superstrings
Abstract Perturbative breaking of supersymmetry in four-dimensional string theories predict in general the existence of new large dimensions at the TeV scale. Such dimensions can be consistent with
Supersymmetry breaking, open strings and M-theory☆
Abstract We study supersymmetry breaking by Scherk-Schwarz compactifications in type I string theory. While in the gravitational sector all mass splittings are proportional to a (large)
Ineffective Supersymmetry: Electroweak Symmetry Breaking from Extra Dimensions
Recently, a mechanism for electroweak symmetry breaking (EWSB) was discussed, in which the scale of EWSB is set by the scale of an additional dimension R ~ Tev^-1. The mechanism involves
Supersymmetry breaking in M theory and gaugino condensation
Abstract We argue that supersymmetry breaking by gaugino condensation in the strongly coupled heterotic string can be described by an analogue of Scherk-Schwarz compactification on the eleventh
Soft electroweak breaking from hard supersymmetry breaking
Abstract We present a class of four-dimensional models, with a non-supersymmetric spectrum, in which the radiative corrections to the Higgs mass are not sensitive, at least at one-loop, to the UV
Dirac gaugino masses and supersoft supersymmetry breaking
We introduce a new supersymmetric extension of the standard model in which the gauge sector contains complete N = 2 supersymmetry multiplets. Supersymmetry breaking from the D-term vev of a hidden
Perturbative supersymmetry breaking in orbifolds with Wilson line backgrounds
Abstract A way to break supersymmetry in perturbative superstring theory is the string version of the Scherk-Schwarz mechanism. There, the fermions and bosons have mass splitting due to different
Higgs and super-Higgs effects with naturally vanishing classical vacuum energy
Abstract We construct N = 1 supergravity models where the gauge symmetry and supersymmetry are both spontaneously broken, with naturally vanishing classical vacuum energy and unsuppressed Goldstino
Out of this world supersymmetry breaking
Abstract We show that in a general hidden sector model, supersymmetry breaking necessarily generates at one loop a scalar and gaugino mass as a consequence of the super-Weyl anomaly. We study a
Towards a dynamical determination of parameters in the minimal supersymmetric standard model
Abstract In the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), the scale M SUSY of soft supersymmetry breaking is usually assumed to be of the order of the electroweak scale. We reconsider here the


Weak symmetry breaking by radiative corrections in broken supergravity
Abstract Weak interaction gauge symmetry breaking can be generated by radiative corrections in a spontaneously broken supergravity theory, provided the top quark is heavy enough. In one class of such
Grand unification with local supersymmetry
Abstract We study general conditions for obtaining spontaneous breaking of local supersymmetry in N = 1 supergravity coupled to supersymmetric matter. We consider in particular the coupling of N = 1
Superstrings with spontaneously broken supersymmetry and their effective theories
We discuss superstring models with spontaneous breaking of N=1, 2 or 4 space-time supersymmetry, via coordinate-dependent compactifications from five to four dimensions. We provide a description of
No-Scale Supersymmetric Standard Model
Abstract We propose a class of supergravity models coupled to matter in which the scales of supersymmetry breaking and of weak gauge symmetry breaking are both fixed by dimensional transmutation, not
Upper bound of the lightest Higgs boson mass in the minimal supersymmetric standard model
In the minimal supersymmetric standard madel, it is shown that a radiative correction of the top and stop loops gives a finite, but non-negligible contribution to Higgs scalar masses if m, "'"
Hierarchical supersymmetry breaking and dynamical determination of compactification parameters by non-perturbative effects
The characteristics of the effective potentials coming from phenomenologically promising compactified superstring theories are examined, paying special attention to the supersymmetry breaking issue.
Supersymmetric grand unification in a six-dimensional spacetime
Abstract We formulate N=2 supersymmetric GUTs in a six-dimensional spacetime, studying in particular the spontaneous breaking of gauge invariance and the construction of massive gauge multiplets. In
A Possible new dimension at a few TeV
We examine the possibility of the existence of a large internal dimension at relatively low energies of the order of a few TeV. Such a dimension is a general prediction of perturbative string
Renormalization group analysis on the Higgs mass in the softly broken supersymmetric standard model
Abstract We calculate a mass of the lightest Higgs boson in the minimal supersymmetric standard model by solving one-loop renormalization-group equations. In the range mt = 150–200 GeV and for a
