The meta-stable SUSY breaking mechanism of Intriligator Seiberg and Shih can be used to simplify the Pentagon model of TeV scale physics. The simplified model has only a single scalar field and no troublesome low energy axion. One significant signature is $l^+ l^- X$ plus missing energy, where $X$ might be the two photons of gauge mediated models, but is likely to be different. There is a new strongly interacting sector with a scale around 1.5 TeV. The penta-hadrons of this sector have masses… 

Thermal evolution of the non-supersymmetric metastable vacua in N = 2 SU(2) SYM softly broken to N = 1

: It has been shown that four dimensional N = 2 gauge theories, softly broken to N = 1 by a superpotential term, can accommodate metastable non-supersymmetric vacua in their moduli space. We study

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
