Supersymmetric grand unification

Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 176)


After a brief discussion of motivations and prototype models, we review recent studies of model building and of proton decay in supersymmetric grand unification. A new effect is mentioned for ΔB ≠ 0 four-scalar interactions induced by an intermediate scale (1010 ∼ 1012 GeV) supersymmetry breaking.
