Title: General Gauge Mediation with Gauge Messengers
Date: Wed, Oct 21, 2009, 13:30 - 14:30
Place: Seminar Room at IPMU Prefab. B
Abstract: General Gauge Mediation is a formalism in which the properties of the "visible" particles are parameterized for an arbitrary susy-breaking sector. However, one must make some assumptions about how the two sectors communicate. I will discuss a generalization allowing for the possibility of gauge messengers. Gauge messengers occur when charged matter fields of the susy-breaking sector have non-zero F-terms, which leads to tree-level, susy-breaking mass splittings in the gauge fields.
