Supersymmetry Beyond Minimality : From Theory to Experiment, Hardback Book


Supersymmetry (SUSY) is one of the most important ideas ever conceived in particle physics.

It is a symmetry that relates known elementary particles of a certain spin to as yet undiscovered particles that differ by half a unit of that spin (known as Superparticles).

Supersymmetric models now stand as the most promising candidates for a unified theory beyond the Standard Model (SM).

SUSY is an elegant and simple theory, but its existence lacks direct proof.

Instead of dismissing supersymmetry altogether, Supersymmetry Beyond Minimality: from Theory to Experiment suggests that SUSY may exist in more complex and subtle manifestation than the minimal model.

The book explores in detail non-minimal SUSY models, in a bottom-up approach that interconnects experimental phenomena in the fermionic and bosonic sectors.

The book considers with equal emphasis the Higgs and Superparticle sectors, and explains both collider and non-collider experiments.

Uniquely, the book explores charge/parity and lepton flavour violation. Supersymmetry Beyond Minimality: from Theory to Experiment provides an introduction to well-motivated examples of such non-minimal SUSY models, including the ingredients for generating neutrino masses and/or relaxing the tension with the heavily constraining Large Hadron Collider (LHC) data.

Examples of these scenarios are explored in depth, in particular the discussions on Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric SM (NMSSM) and B-L Supersymmetric SM (BLSSM).
