New phenomenological tests for supersymmetric theories with SU(5)-like unification

Abstract : The Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) is probably the best studied of all new physics theories. In most phenomenological studies, one assumes the hypothesis of minimal flavour violation, where all flavour-violating interactions are related to the CKM-matrix (as it is the case in the standard model). However, if supersymmetry is embedded in larger frameworks such as grand unified theories (GUT), new sources of flavour violation can appear. The corresponding terms in the Lagrangian are directly related to the mechanism of supersymmetry breaking, for which at present no theoretical consensus exists. Several processes have recently been evoked (among others by the co-director of the proposed thesis), which might lead to promising signatures at the LHC if non-minimal flavour violation is realized. These studies, however, included flavour-violating terms directly at the electroweak scale without taking into account their possible origin at some high scale. The main goal of the project is to extend the previous work in order to take into account the link between the electroweak and the GUT scale. This will allow to put constraints on parameters describing supersymmetry breaking using constraints imposed at the electroweak scale. A second goal is the analysis of relevant processes with the help of current Monte-Carlo simulation tools in order to study the background and thus clarify the observability at LHC for different scenarios and regions of parameters space. So, the project is ideally situated at the frontier between model building and more phenomenological aspects. For this reason the project naturally includes interactions with the local particle physics phenomenology group at LAPTh as well as with the the neighbouring experimental groups (e.g. ATLAS, LHCb) at LAPP. Moreover, collaborations on the national, in particular with the LPSC Grenoble, and international level, e.g. with the University of Würzburg (Germany), the University of Münster (Germany) and the newly created International Institute of Physics in Natal (Brasil) are envisaged.
