Implications of horizontal symmetries on baryon number violation in supersymmetric models

Technical Report:

Abstract

The smallness of the quark and lepton parameters and the hierarchy between them could be the result of selection rules due to a horizontal symmetry broken by a small parameter. The same selection rules apply to baryon number violating terms. Consequently, the problem of baryon number violation in supersymmetry may be solved naturally, without invoking any especially-designed extra symmetry. This mechanism is efficient enough even for low-scale flavor physics. Proton decay is likely to be dominated by the modes K{sup +}{nu}-bar{sub i} or K{sup o}{mu}{sup +}(e{sup +}), and may proceed at observable rates. (authors). 15 refs.
