Predicting the seesaw scale in a minimal bottomup extension of the MSSM
Abstract
We analyze a minimal bottomup seesaw scenario that (i) is supersymmetric, (ii) has a local BL symmetry as part of the gauge group SU(2){sub L}xSU(2){sub R}xU(1){sub BL} to implement the seesaw mechanism, (iii) has a BL symmetry breaking that leaves Rparity unbroken so that there is naturally stable dark matter, and (iv) has a discrete Z symmetry that excludes bilinear Higgs terms in the superpotential. We show that (i) and (iv) allow one to predict the seesaw scale for neutrino masses to be M{sub R}{approx_equal}{radical}(M{sub SUSY}M{sub Pl}){approx_equal}10{sup 11} GeV. We demonstrate, given the above, that the ground state is a stable minimum and is lower than possible electric charge violating minima. Furthermore, we provide expressions for the masses of the light doubly charged Higgs bosons and Higgsinos that are known to exist in the generic versions of these models. Finally, we indicate how one can get different expectation values for the MSSM Higgs doublets and therefore obtain realistic quark masses.

We study an extension of the minimal supersymmetric standard model by an anomalous Abelian vector multiplet and a Stueckelberg multiplet. The anomalies are cancelled by the GreenSchwarz mechanism and the addition of ChernSimons terms. The advantage of this choice over the standard one is that it allows for arbitrary values of the quantum numbers of the extra U(1). As a first step toward the study of hadron annihilations producing four leptons in the final state (a clean signal which might be studied at LHC), we then compute the decays Z{sup '}{yields}Z{sub 0}{gamma} and Z{sup '}{yields}Z{sub 0}Z{sub 0}. We find thatmore »

Consistent cosmology with Higgs thermal inflation in a minimal extension of the MSSM
We consider a class of supersymmetric inflation models, in which minimal gauged Fterm hybrid inflation is coupled renormalisably to the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM), with no extra ingredients; we call this class the ''minimal hybrid inflationary supersymmetric standard model'' (MHISSM). The singlet inflaton couples to the Higgs as well as the waterfall fields, supplying the Higgs μterm. We show how such models can exit inflation to a vacuum characterised by large Higgs vevs, whose vacuum energy is controlled by supersymmetrybreaking. The true ground state is reached after an intervening period of thermal inflation along the Higgs flat direction, whichmore » 
Bottomup reconstruction scenarios for (un)constrained MSSM parameters at the CERN LHC
We consider some specific inverse problem or 'bottomup' reconstruction strategies at the CERN LHC for both general and constrained minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) parameters, starting from a plausibly limited set of sparticle identification and mass measurements, using mainly gluino/squark cascade decays, plus eventually the lightest Higgs boson mass. For the three naturally separated sectors of gaugino/Higgsino, squark/slepton, and Higgs parameters, we examine different stepbystep algorithms based on rather simple, entirely analytical, inverted relations between masses and basic MSSM parameters. This includes also reasonably good approximations of some of the relevant radiative correction calculations. We distinguish the constraints obtained formore » 
Minimal seesaw model for atmospheric and solar neutrino oscillations
We present a minimal seesaw model based on an extension of the standard model (SM) which includes an additional U(1), with gauge charge B{minus} (3) /(2) (L{sub {mu}}+L{sub {tau}}). The requirement of anomaly cancellation implies the existence of two righthanded singlet neutrinos, carrying this gauge charge, which have normal Dirac couplings to {nu}{sub {mu}} and {nu}{sub {tau}} but suppressed ones to {nu}{sub e}. Assuming the U(1) symmetry breaking scale to be 10{sup 12}{minus}10{sup 16} GeV, this model can naturally account for the large (small) mixing solutions to the atmospheric (solar) neutrino oscillations. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society} 
Fast neutrino decay in the minimal seesaw model
Neutrino decay in the minimal seesaw model containing three righthanded neutrinos and a complex SU(2){times}U(1) singlet Higgs field singlet in addition to the standard model fields is considered. A global horizontal symmetry U(1){sub {ital H}} is imposed, which on spontaneous breaking gives rise to a Goldstone boson. This symmetry is chosen in a way that makes (a) the contribution of heavy ({le} MeV) Majorana neutrinos to the neutrinoless double{beta}decay amplitude vanish and (b) allows the heavy neutrino to decay to a lighter neutrino and the Goldstone boson. It is shown that this decay can occur at a rate much fastermore »
