We look at the recently proposed idea that susy breaking can be accomplished in a meta-stable vacuum. In the context of one of the simplest models (the Seiberg-dual of super-QCD), we address the following question: if we look at this theory as it cools from high temperature, is it at all possible that we can end up in a susy-breaking meta-stable vacuum? To get an idea about the answer, we look at the free energy of the system at high temperature. We conclude that the phase-structure of the free… 

Metastable supersymmetry breaking and supergravity at finite temperature

We study how coupling to supergravity affects the phase structure of a system exhibiting dynamical supersymmetry breaking in a meta-stable vacuum. More precisely, we consider the Seiberg dual of SQCD

Why the early Universe preferred the non-supersymmetric vacuum: part II

It was recently shown in [1] that in the context of the ISS models with a metastable supersymmetry breaking vacuum, thermal effects generically drive the Universe to the metastable vacuum even if it

Cosmological vacuum selection and metastable susy breaking

We study gauge mediation in a wide class of O’Raifeartaigh type models where supersymmetry breaking metastable vacuum is created by gravity and/or quantum corrections. We examine their thermal

Metastable SUSY breaking within the standard model

We construct a supersymmetric version of the Standard Model which contains a long-lived metastable vacuum. In this vacuum supersymmetry is broken and the electroweak symmetry is Higgsed, and we

Many messenger models with realistic gaugino masses are based on meta-stable vacua. In this work we study the thermal history of some of these models. Analyzing R-symmetric models, we point out that

Towards realizing dynamical SUSY breaking in heterotic model building

We study a new mechanism to dynamically break supersymmetry in the E8 × E8 heterotic string. As discussed recently in the literature, a long-lived, meta-stable non-supersymmetric vacuum can be

We study the existence of long-lived meta-stable supersymmetry breaking vacua in gauge theories with massless quarks, upon the addition of extra massive flavors. A simple realization is provided by a

A note on (meta)stable brane configurations in MQCD

We examine the M-theory version of SQCD which is known as MQCD. In the IIA limit, this theory appears to have a supersymmetry-breaking brane configuration which corresponds to the meta-stable state

It is shown how finite-temperature effects in a renormalizable quantum field theory can restore a symmetry which is broken at zero temperature. In general, for both gauge symmetries and ordinary
