The supersymmetric ``shining'' of free massive chiral superfields in extra dimensions from a distant source brane can trigger exponentially small supersymmetry breaking on our brane of order ${e}^{\ensuremath{-}2\ensuremath{\pi}R},$ where R is the radius of the extra dimensions. This supersymmetry breaking can be transmitted to the superpartners in a number of ways, for instance by gravity or via the standard model gauge interactions. The radius R can easily be stabilized at a size $O(10…

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

Supersymmetric radius stabilization in warped extra dimensions

We propose a simple model of extra-dimensional radius stabilization in a supersymmetric Randall-Sundrum model. In our model, we introduce only a bulk hypermultiplet and source terms (tadpole terms)

Higher dimensional supersymmetry in 4D superspace

We present an explicit formulation of supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories from = 5 to 10 dimensions in the familiar = 1, = 4 superspace. This provides the rules for globally supersymmetric model

Supersymmetric extra dimensions: Gravitino effects in selectron pair production

We examine the phenomenological consequences of a supersymmetric bulk in the scenario of large extra dimensions. We assume that supersymmetry is realized in the bulk and study the interactions of the

Brane induced supersymmetry breaking

We study spontaneous supersymmetry breaking induced by brane-localized dynamics in flve-dimensional supergravity compactifled on S 1 =Z2. We consider a model with gravity in the bulk and matter

Deconstructing six-dimensional gauge theories with strongly coupled moose meshes

It has recently been realized that five dimensional theories can be generated dynamically from asymptotically free, QCD-like four dimensional dynamics via ``deconstruction.'' In this paper we
