Speaker: David Poland (UC Berkeley)
Title: More visible effects of the hidden sector
Abstract: Dynamics of the hidden sector that breaks supersymmetry can have dramatic effects on visible sector parameters, particularly when the hidden sector is strongly coupled and quasi-conformal. These effects will be discussed in the context of meta-stable supersymmetry breaking, and we will show that these effects can lead to a solution of the mu-problem in gauge mediation.
