2 Susy - Oct 2004Aldo F. Saavedra (LBL) Motivation A bit of algebra Signals Outline:

3 Susy - Oct 2004Aldo F. Saavedra (LBL) Some Shortcomings of the Standard Model Hierarchy problem: For spontaneous symmetry breaking one needs: Where H and  are higgs field responsible for symmetry breaking of SU(2) and GUT groups. The first question is how to get such a small number. The only way is to tune coupling constants. A radiative correction will certainly disrupt the fore metioned hierarchy.

4 Susy - Oct 2004Aldo F. Saavedra (LBL) The feynman diagram for a the radiative correction to a ligh higgs mass is shown and is proportional to the squared mass of the particle Not cancelled will disrupt the hierachy In supersymmetry the contribution of the superpartners of the higgs particle perform the cancellation:

6 Susy - Oct 2004Aldo F. Saavedra (LBL) Muon Anomalous Magnetic Moment: Collaboration E821 at Brookhaven measured a value for a  = (g  -2) /2 which deviates by 2.6  from the Standard Model.

8 Susy - Oct 2004Aldo F. Saavedra (LBL) The collaboration claims that the difference can be accounted for in a number particle physics models employing weak scale supersymmetry. In hep-ph/ different SUSY models are compared. Some are favoured and some are not.

9 Susy - Oct 2004Aldo F. Saavedra (LBL) The only possible extension of symmetry beyond Lie symmetries. Coleman- Mandula Theorem.(1967). This came from an attempt to combine internal and Lorentz symmetries and it states that: The only conserved quantities that transform as tensors under Lorentz transformation in a theory with non-zero scattering amplitudes in 4 dimensions are the generators of Poincare group and Lorentz invariant quantum numbers(scalar charges)

12 Susy - Oct 2004Aldo F. Saavedra (LBL) R-parity –Consequences: SUSY particles produced in pairs. Lightest SUSY particle (LSP) must be neutral and colourless (from cosmological constraints). LSP is stable. –No theoretical argument requires R-parity. –Some models conserve, others violate R-parity.
