Implications of Supersymmetric Grand Unification

  • V. Barger
  • M. S. Berger
  • P. Ohmann


Unification of the interactions of the Standard Model is possible in its simplest supersymmetric extension. The implications of the λt fixed-point solution on the top mass and on Higgs phenomenology is discussed. Expected correlations between the masses of various supersymmetric particles are detailed.
