Perhaps this is a hidden force behind the nonminimal State: more issues to decide means that there are more chances that a given person will win on one.

The models appear to be equivalent to each other and to N = 4 super YangMills theory coupled to a nonminimal conformal supergravity [4].

One possibility is that TelCo is using delay discrimination, either minimal or nonminimal, with the goal of causing this problem.

As the experimental constraints get tighter and rule out various simple possibilities (e.g. mSUGRA), people are forced into more complicated things like nonminimal SUSY models.

The minimal state will become a nonminimal state soon after its establishment.

In the nonminimal Bohm theory [18], the behavior of an Nparticle system is determined by its wave function and the intrinsic properties of the particles.

But, in contrast to the minimal theory, in the nonminimal theory spins are intrinsic properties of particles.

A minimal system should be more metabolically efficient than a nonminimal.

There are lots of examples of this phenomenon  that string theory is able to "guide you" in finding many nontrivial and nonminimal mathematical structures and theoretical frameworks that share some features with the "cool and simple ideas" that you might invent after a few minutes but, unlike the cheap and fast ideas, these nonminimal ideas work.

On the other hand, string theory exactly tells what kind of nonminimal extensions of these ideas you should pursue in order to have a chance that your theory won't be instantly ruled out.
