Gauge Hierarchies in Unified Theories
The problem of gauge hierarchies is reviewed. A distinction is made between gauge hierarchy in each order of perturbation theory and gauge hierarchy in the full theory. It is shown that, in the full theory, in all cases, it is possible to arrange for a phenomenologically adequate hierarchy provided certain effective mass parameters are restricted to be small or zero. The problem of hierarchy in each order of perturbation theory is clarified and the necessary conditions for the existence of such models are discussed.
