Title: Topics in metastable supersymmetry breaking
Author: Carvalho Torres, Marcus André de, 1971-
Abstract: Supersymmetry helps simplifying the hierarchy problem , it provides candidates for dark matter and it leads to the desirable gauge coupling unification . Nevertheless , Supersymmetry is not found around us , and it has to be a broken symmetry . In this thesis we explore a different paradigm where supersymmetry is not broken in the true vacuum . Instead we live in a long living meta -stable vacuum that is not supersymmetric .
