  • n. One of the parameters of supersymmetry


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • My concern was the order one (in 4D Plack units) flux superpotential

  • In this class of models the racetrack-type superpotential is purely non-perturbative and the hierarchy problem can be naturally solved via the dimensional transmutation.

    String Theory is Losing the Public Debate

  • The few “classes” of models people have been able to construct so far where all the moduli are fixed and SUSY is spontaneously broken so that one can honestly compute the F-terms and hence the gaugino masses, scalar masses and the trilinears in terms of the microscopic parameters coming from the Kahler potential and the superpotential are hard to come by.

  • Through the wall, I could see two nervous systems, surrounded by glowing lines of superpotential, great usefulness, jogging up the stairs.

    Orphans of Chaos

  • One can make a minimal thing that breaks the electroweak symmetry - the Higgs doublet - and a minimal thing that breaks SUSY - like a superpotential of your dad.

    The Reference Frame

  • I thought that the flux superpotential in Type IIA can’t be tuned to be small, unlike in the Type IIB case.
