Supersymmetry at Ordinary Energy

  • Burt A. Ovrut
Part of the Progress in Physics book series (PMP, volume 6)


Everybody knows that there is a gauge hierarchy problem in Grand Unified Theories (GUTS). By now almost everybody knows that supersymmetry offers at least a partial resolution of this problem. A supersymmetric GUT, at energies far below the unification mass, must behave like a supersymmetric extension of the standard color × electro-weak model where the supersymmetry has been broken either explicitly or spontaneously. In this lecture I would like to first discuss the general problems involved in constructing such low energy supersymmetric theories and then to review several recent attempts to build realistic models.
