Gauge-top unification

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

Local grand unification in the heterotic landscape

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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
