A low intermediate scale within minimal supersymmetric SO(10) GUTs is a desirable feature to accommodate leptogenesis. We explore this possibility in models where the intermediate gauge symmetry breaks spontaneously by (a) doublet Higgs scalars and also (b) by triplets. In both scenarios, gauge coupling unification requires the scale of left-right symmetry breaking (M{sub R}) to be close to the unification scale. This will entail unnaturally small neutrino Yukawa couplings to avoid the…

Unification predictions with or without supersymmetry
Supersymmetric (SUSY) grand unified theories (GUTs) appear to be best motivated for understanding strong, weak and electromagnetic interactions of nature. We briefly review emergence of new formulas
LHC and lepton flavour violation phenomenology of a left-right extension of the MSSM
We study the phenomenology of a supersymmetric left-right model, assuming minimal supergravity boundary conditions. Both left-right and (B-L) symmetries are broken at an energy scale close to, but
Triplet leptogenesis, type-II seesaw dominance, intrinsic dark matter, vacuum stability and proton decay in minimal SO(10) breakings
We implement type-II seesaw dominance for neutrino mass and baryogenesis through heavy scalar triplet leptogenesis in a class of minimal non-supersymmetric SO(10) models where matter parity as
Standard coupling unification in SO(10), hybrid seesaw neutrino mass and leptogenesis, dark matter, and proton lifetime predictions
A bstractWe discuss gauge coupling unification of SU(3)C × SU(2)L × U(1)Y descending directly from non-supersymmetric SO(10) while providing solutions to the three out-standing problems of the
New weak-scale physics from SO(10) with high-scale supersymmetry
Gauge coupling unification and the stability of the Higgs vacuum are among two of the cherished features of low-energy supersymmetric models. Putting aside questions of naturalness, supersymmetry
Some Explorations of New Physics Beyond The Standard Model
Some new physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics, like Supersymmetry, Extra-dimensions etc., and their effect on the nature of different standard model phenomena are explored in this
SO(10) grand unification in light of recent LHC searches and colored scalars at the TeV-scale
We analyze the compatibility of the recent LHC signals and the TeV-scale left–right model(s) in the minimal nonsupersymmetric SO(10) framework. We show that the models in which the Higgs content is
Flavor unification, dark matter, proton decay and other observable predictions with low-scale $S_4$ symmetry
We show how gauge coupling unification is successfully implemented through nonsupersymmetric grand unified theory, SO(10)xG{sub f}(G{sub f}=S{sub 4},SO(3){sub f},SU(3){sub f}), using a low-scale
Cosmology in a supersymmetric model with gauged B-L symmetry
We consider salient cosmological features of a supersymmetric model which is left-right symmetric and therefore possessing gauged B - L symmetry. The requirement of breaking parity and also obtaining
