Encouraged by the advent of a new generation of underground detectors – JUNO, DUNE and Hyper-Kamiokande – that are projected to improve significantly on the present sensitivities to various baryon decay modes, we revisit baryon decay in the minimal supersymmetric SU(5) GUT. We discuss the phenomenological uncertainties associated with hadronic matrix elements and the value of the strong coupling $$\alpha _s$$ α s – which are the most important – the weak mixing angle $$\theta _W$$ θ W , quark… Expand

Employing nucleon decay as a fingerprint of SUSY GUT models using SusyTCProton
Abstract While the observation of nucleon decay would be a smoking gun of Grand Unified Theories (GUTs) in general, the ratios between the decay rates of the various channels carry rich informationExpand
Light-cone sum rules for proton decay
We estimate the form factors that parametrise the hadronic matrix elements of proton-to-pion transitions with the help of light-cone sum rules. These form factors are relevant for semi-leptonicExpand
Nucleon decay in the R -parity violating MSSM
We present a reanalysis of nucleon decay in the context of the R-parity violating MSSM, updating bounds on R-parity violating parameters against recent experimental and lattice results. We payExpand
Proton decay in product group unification
Product group unification is an attractive alternative to simple grand unification. It solves the infamous doublet-triplet splitting problem and the dimension-5 proton decay problems withoutExpand
Building models of inflation in no-scale supergravity
After reviewing the motivations for cosmological inflation formulated in the formalism of supersymmetry, we argue that the appropriate framework is that of no-scale supergravity. We then show how toExpand
Low-energy probes of no-scale SU(5) super-GUTs
We explore the possible values of the $\mu \to e \gamma$ branching ratio, $\text{BR}(\mu\rightarrow e\gamma)$, and the electron dipole moment (eEDM), $d_e$, in no-scale SU(5) super-GUT models withExpand
Model of metastable EeV dark matter
We propose a model where a long-lived pseudoscalar EeV particle can be produced with sufficient abundance so as to account for the cold dark matter density, despite having a Planck mass suppressedExpand
Observable proton decay in flipped SU(5)
We explore proton decay in a class of realistic supersymmetric flipped $SU(5)$ models supplemented by a $U(1)_R$ symmetry which plays an essential role in implementing hybrid inflation. Two distinctExpand
Phenomenology and cosmology of no-scale attractor models of inflation
We have recently proposed attractor models for modulus fixing, inflation, supersymmetry breaking and dark energy based on no-scale supergravity. In this paper we develop phenomenological andExpand

Precision calculations in the MSSM Higgs-boson sector with FeynHiggs 2.14
An overview of the status and recent developments of FeynHiggs is presented, and improvements of the fixed-order and EFT calculation are described, i.e. an implementation of non-degenerate threshold corrections as well as an interpolation for complex parameters. Expand

A minimal SU(5) SuperGUT in pure gravity mediation
The lack of evidence for low-scale supersymmetry suggests that the scale of supersymmetry breaking may be higher than originally anticipated. However, there remain many motivations for supersymmetryExpand
