### Gauge-top unification

- Physics
- 2009

Higher-dimensional models of grand unification allow us to relate the top Yukawa coupling yt to the gauge coupling g. The tree level relation yt = g at the scale of grand unification implies, in the…

: Higher-dimensional models of grand uniﬁcation allow us to relate the top Yukawa coupling y t to the gauge coupling g . The tree level relation y t = g at the scale of grand uniﬁcation implies, in…

### Local grand unification in the heterotic landscape

- Physics
- 2010

We consider the possibility that the unification of the electroweak interactions and the strong force arises from string theory, at energies significantly lower than the string scale. As a tool, an…

### Standard model vacua for two-dimensional compactifications

- Physics
- 2010

We examine the structure of lower-dimensional standard model vacua for two-dimensional compactifications (on a 2D torus and on a 2D sphere). In the case of the torus we find a new standard model…

### One-Loop Effective Action in Orbifold Compactifications

- Physics
- 2008

We employ the covariant background formalism to derive generic expressions for the one-loop effective action in field theoretic orbifold compactifications. The contribution of each orbifold sector is…

### Supersymmetry breaking through transparent extra dimensions

- Physics
- 2000

We propose a new framework for mediating supersymmetry breaking through an extra dimension. It predicts positive scalar masses and solves the supersymmetric flavor problem. Supersymmetry breaks on a…

### Gaugino mediated supersymmetry breaking

- Physics
- 2000

We consider supersymmetric theories where the standard-model quark and lepton fields are localized on a `3-brane' in extra dimensions, while the gauge and Higgs fields propagate in the bulk. If…

### Supersymmetric standard model from the heterotic string.

- PhysicsPhysical review letters
- 2006

A orbifold compactification of the E8xE8 heterotic string which leads to the (supersymmetric) standard model gauge group and matter content and the model is consistent with gauge coupling unification.

### Squarks and sleptons between branes and bulk

- Physics
- 2003

We study gaugino-mediated supersymmetry breaking in a six-dimensional SO(10) orbifold GUT model where quarks and leptons are mixtures of brane and bulk fields. The couplings of bulk matter fields to…

### Gauge unification in higher dimensions

- Physics
- 2001

A complete 5-dimensional SU(5) unified theory is constructed which, on compactification on the orbifold with two different Z{sub 2}'s (Z{sub 2} and Z{sub 2}{prime}), yields the minimal supersymmetric…
