Lepton flavor violation in a supersymmetric grand unified theory model with nonuniversal sfermion masses
Abstract
We analyze lepton flavor violating {tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma} and {mu}{yields}e{gamma} processes in a supersymmetric grand unified theory model in which sfermions have a special mass spectrum. It is assumed that only third generation sfermions which are contained in 10(Q,U{sup c},E{sup c}) of SU(5) can have a different mass from the others. This mass spectrum is derived from the E{sub 6} grand unified theory model with horizontal symmetries. It is shown that branching ratios of {tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma} and {mu}{yields}e{gamma} depend strongly on a righthanded stau mass. The weak scale stability requires a light stau, so large decay rates can be expected in this scenario. When the stau mass is around 150 GeV and tan{beta}{approx}10, the branching ratios can be larger than Br({tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma}){approx_equal}10{sup 8} and Br({mu}{yields}e{gamma}){approx_equal}5x10{sup 12}, which are within reach of future experiments. In addition, this model has an interesting feature that the final state charged lepton tends to have righthanded chirality.

We analyze the complementarity between lepton flavor violation (LFV) and LHC experiments in probing the supersymmetric (SUSY) grand unified theories (GUT) when neutrinos get a mass via the seesaw mechanism. Our analysis is performed in an SO(10) framework, where at least one neutrino Yukawa coupling is necessarily as large as the top Yukawa coupling. Our study thoroughly takes into account the whole renormalization group running, including the GUT and the righthanded neutrino mass scales, as well as the running of the observable neutrino spectrum. We find that the upcoming (MEG, SuperKEKB) and future (PRISM/PRIME, super flavor factory) LFV experiments willmore »

Spontaneous CP violation in E{sub 6} supersymmetric grand unified theory with SU(2) flavor and anomalous U(1) symmetries
We construct a model of spontaneous CP violation in E{sub 6} supersymmetric grand unified theory. In the model, we employ an SU(2){sub F} flavor symmetry and an anomalous U(1){sub A} symmetry. The SU(2){sub F} flavor symmetry is introduced to provide the origin of hierarchical structures of Yukawa coupling and to ensure the universality of sfermion soft masses. The anomalous U(1){sub A} symmetry is introduced to realize the doublettriplet mass splitting, to provide the origin of hierarchical structures of Yukawa couplings, and to solve the {mu} problem. In the model, CP is spontaneously broken by the SU(2){sub F} breaking in ordermore » 
Neutrino masses and tribimaximal mixing in the minimal renormalizable supersymmetric SU(5) grand unified model with A{sub 4} flavor symmetry
We analyze all possible extensions of the recently proposed minimal renormalizable SUSY SU(5) grand unified model with the inclusion of an additional A{sub 4} flavor symmetry. We find that there are five possible cases but only one of them is phenomenologically interesting. We develop in detail such case and we show how the fermion masses and mixing angles come out. As a prediction we obtain the neutrino masses of order of 0.1 eV with an inverted hierarchy. 
Phenomenology of nonuniversal gaugino masses in supersymmetric grand unified theories
Grand unified theories can lead to nonuniversal boundary conditions for the gaugino masses at the unification scale. We consider the implications of such nonuniversal boundary conditions for the composition of the lightest neutralino as well as for the upper bound on its mass in the simplest supersymmetric grand unified theory based on the SU(5) gauge group. We derive sum rules for neutralino and chargino masses in different representations of SU(5) which lead to different nonuniversal boundary conditions for the gaugino masses at the unification scale. We also consider the phenomenological implications of the nonuniversal gaugino masses arising from a grandmore »
