Type I string theory provides a D-brane world description of our universe and leads to two new scenaria for physics beyond the Standard Model: low string scale and split supersymmetry. Lowering the

Nonlinear supersymmetry and goldstino couplings to the MSSM

We briefly review the nonlinear supersymmetry formalisms in the standard realization and superfield methods. We then evaluate the goldstino couplings to the minimal supersymmetric standard model

Nonlinear (super)symmetries and amplitudes

A bstractThere is an increasing interest in nonlinear supersymmetries in cosmological model building. Independently, elegant expressions for the all-tree amplitudes in models with nonlinear

The coupling of non-linear supersymmetry to supergravity

We study the coupling of non-linear supersymmetry to supergravity. The goldstino nilpotent superfield of global supersymmetry coupled to supergravity is described by a geometric action of the chiral

Aspects of Effective Supersymmetric Theories

This work consists of two parts. In the first part we construct the complete extension of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model by higher dimensional effective operators and study its

Nucleon decay in gauge unified models with intersecting D6-branes

Baryon number violation is discussed in gauge unified orbifold models of type II string theory with intersecting Dirichlet branes. We consider setups of $D6$-branes which extend along the flat

Note on supersymmetric Dirac-Born-Infeld action with Fayet-Iliopoulos term

We study the Dirac-Born-Infeld (DBI) action with one linear and one nonlinear supersymmetry in the presence of a constant Fayet-Iliopoulos (FI) D-term added explicitly or through a deformation of



Chiral four-dimensional string compactifications with intersecting D-branes

We review the construction of chiral four-dimensional compactifications of type IIA string theory with intersecting D6-branes. Such models lead to four-dimensional theories with non-Abelian gauge

Contact interactions in D-brane models

We compute the tree-level four-point scattering amplitudes in string models where matter fields live on D-brane intersections. Extracting the contribution of massless modes, we are left with

Low-energy brane-world effective actions and partial supersymmetry breaking

As part of a programme for the general study of the low-energy implications of supersymmetry breaking in brane-world scenarios, we study the nonlinear realization of supersymmetry which occurs when

On the effective interactions of a light gravitino with matter fermions

If the gravitino is light and all the other supersymmetric particles are heavy, we can consider the effective theory describing the interactions of its goldstino components with ordinary matter. To
