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

- Physics
- 2001

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…

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)…

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…

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…
