  • In a class of minimal supersymmetric left-right models of weak interactions where [ital R] parity is automatically conserved, we show that the spontaneous breakdown of parity cannot occur without the spontaneous breakdown of [ital R] parity. This intriguing result connects two physically different scales in supersymmetric models.
  • The sneutrino resonance reactions p{bar p}{r_arrow}{tilde {nu}}+X{r_arrow}l{sup +}l{sup {minus}}+X, for l=e,{mu},{tau}, in the MSSM without R-parity are considered. We perform a cross-section analysis and show that present limits on some products of R{sub P} couplings in the sneutrino sector can be significantly improved in future upgraded Fermilab Tevatron runs. Furthermore, we introduce CP-violating and CP-conserving {tau}-spin asymmetries which are generated already at the {ital tree level} in the reaction p{bar p}{r_arrow}{tilde {nu}}+X{r_arrow}{tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup {minus}}+X if there is {tilde {nu}}{sup {mu}}-{nu}&dbartil;{sup {mu}} mixing and that vanish in the SM. We find, for example, that for muon-sneutrino masses in the range 150more » GeV{approx_lt}m{sub {tilde {nu}}{sup {mu}}}{approx_lt}450 GeV, these spin asymmetries reach {approximately}20{endash}30{percent} and {approximately}10{percent} for mass splitting between the muon-sneutrino CP-odd and CP-even states at the level of {Delta}m{approximately}{Gamma} and {Delta}m{approximately}{Gamma}/4, respectively, where {Gamma} is the {tilde {nu}}{sup {mu}} width. Both the CP-violating and the CP-conserving spin asymmetries should be detectable in future Tevatron runs even for a heavy sneutrino with a mass {approx_lt}500 GeV. If detected, such asymmetries{emdash}being proportional to the mass splitting between the CP-even and CP-odd sneutrino states{emdash}may serve as a strong indication for the existence of the sneutrino mixing phenomenon. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}« less
  • We investigate the implications of R-parity violation (RPV) for quark flavor violation both by constraining the sneutrino masses to be positive and by studying the processes b{r_arrow}s{gamma} and K{sup 0}-{bar K}{sup 0} mixing. In the latter there are two major contributions: one from {open_quotes}direct{close_quotes} one loop diagrams involving RPV couplings, and one from the {open_quotes}indirect{close_quotes} contributions generated by the renormalization group. We compare the effects and discuss the implications of our results. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • Minimal Flavor Violation in the up-type quark sector leads to particularly interesting phenomenology due to the interplay of flavor physics in the charm sector and collider physics from flavor changing processes in the top sector. We study the most general operators that can affect top quark properties and D meson decays in this scenario, concentrating on two CP violating operators for detailed studies. The consequences of these effective operators on charm and top flavor changing processes are generically small, but can be enhanced if there exists a light flavor mediator that is a Standard Model gauge singlet scalar and transformsmore » under the flavor symmetry group. This flavor mediator can satisfy the current experimental bounds with a mass as low as tens of GeV and explain observed D-meson direct CP violation. Additionally, the model predicts a non-trivial branching fraction for a top quark decay that would mimic a dijet resonance.« less
