Superstring theory arguments suggest that supersymmetric grand unified theories cannot have more than a single Higgs field that is in the adjoint representation. It has recently been shown how to break SO(10) down to the Standard Model in a realistic way with only one adjoint Higgs. The expectation value of this adjoint must point in the B − L direction… (More)
