Modeling building and SUSY breaking on D -branes
by Malyshev, Dmitry, Ph.D., Princeton University, 2008, 153; 3332426
Abstract (Summary)

In the recent years there has been an increase of the interest in applying the String theory to construct viable extensions of the Standard Model and to find stringy analogs of the known field theory models for supersymmetry breaking.

In my dissertation I will focus on the constructions involving the D-branes at the Calabi-Yau singularities in type IIB string theory. The main motivations for this choice are: the decoupling of the D-brane field theory from the supergravity, the well established tools for deriving the field theories from the configurations of the D-branes, and the possibility of using the gauge-gravity correspondence in solving some non-perturbative aspects in the field theory.

A construction of an extended supersymmetric Standard Model on a D3-brane at the del Pezzo 8 singularity is presented in the first part of the dissertation. In the second part we discuss the possible representations of the SUSY breaking models in String Theory and obtain the metastable SUSY breaking vacuum in a system of D-branes on the suspended pinch point singularity. The gauge mediation of this SUSY breaking model is described in details. In the simplest model the spectrum of particles in the visible sector has a split SUSY breaking, the sfermions are one order of magnitude heavier than the gauginos. More complicated models and non-generic deformations are expected to give better spectra of the superpartners.
