Title: Supersymmetry breaking, fermion masses and a small extra dimension.

Abstract

We present a supersymmetric model in which the observed fermion masses and mixings are generated by localizing the three generations of matter and the two Higgs fields at different locations in a compact extra dimension. Supersymmetry is broken by the shining method and the breaking is communicated to standard model fields via gaugino mediation. Quark masses, CKM-mixing angles and the {mu} term are generated with all dimensionless couplings of {Omicron}(1). All dimensionful parameters are of order the five-dimensional Planck scale except for the size of the extra dimension which is of order the GUT scale. The superpartner spectrum is highly predictive and is found to have a neutralino LSP over a wide range of parameter space. The resulting phenomenology and interesting extensions of the model are briefly discussed.
