This paper introduces a random statistical scan over the high-energy initial parameter space of the minimal SUSY $B-L$ model--denoted as the $B-L$ MSSM. Each initial set of points is renormalization group evolved to the electroweak scale--being subjected, sequentially, to the requirement of radiative $B-L$ and electroweak symmetry breaking, the present experimental lower bounds on the $B-L$ vector boson and sparticle masses, as well as the lightest neutral Higgs mass of $\sim$125 GeV. The subspace of initial parameters that satisfies all such constraints is presented, shown to be robust and to contain a wide range of different configurations of soft supersymmetry breaking masses.

The structure of the B-L MSSM theory--specifically, the relevant mass scales and soft supersymmetric breaking parameters--is discussed. The space of initial soft parameters is explored at the high scale using random statistical sampling subject to a constraint on the range of dimensionful parameters. For every chosen initial point, the complete set of renormalization group equations is solved. Read More

The existence of R-parity in supersymmetric models can be naturally explained as being a discrete subgroup of gauged baryon minus lepton number (B-L). The most minimal supersymmetric B-L model triggers spontaneous R-parity violation, while remaining consistent with proton stability. This model is well-motivated by string theory and makes several interesting, testable predictions. Read More

The MSSM with right-handed neutrino supermultiplets, gauged B-L symmetry and a non-vanishing sneutrino expectation value is the minimal theory that spontaneously breaks R-parity and is consistent with the bounds on proton stability and lepton number violation. This minimal B-L MSSM can have a colored/charged LSP, of which a stop LSP is the most amenable to observation at the LHC. We study the R-parity violating decays of a stop LSP into a bottom quark and charged leptons--the dominant modes for a generic "admixture" stop. Read More

We investigate a class of theories where the mass of the lightest Higgs boson of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) can be larger than the Z gauge boson mass at tree level. In this context the MSSM fields feel a new force, whose corresponding gauge boson attains its mass through the Stueckelberg mechanism. We show how one can achieve a Higgs mass around 126 GeV without assuming a heavy stop spectrum or a large stop trilinear term. Read More

We present a simple theory where baryon and lepton numbers are spontaneously broken at the supersymmetry scale. In this context R-parity must be spontaneously broken but the theory still contains a stable field which can play the role of the cold dark matter of the Universe. We discuss the spectrum of the theory, the properties of the dark matter candidate and the predictions for direct detection experiments. Read More

We discuss the possible signatures at the Large Hadron Collider in models where R-parity is spontaneously broken. In the context of the minimal gauge theory for R-parity, we investigate signals with multileptons which can provide an unique test of this theory. The possible impact of these ideas for the search of supersymmetry at the Large Hadron Collider is discussed. Read More

We show that the simplest supersymmetric scenario where a large Higgs mass can be attained at tree-level for any ratio of the Higgs vacuum expectation values corresponds to the case where the neutrino masses are generated through the type II seesaw mechanism. This allows a standard model-like Higgs with mass around 125 GeV without assuming a heavy spectrum for the stops. We show that our results are consistent with the bounds coming from perturbativity up to the grand unified scale, discuss gauge coupling unification and possible signals at the Large Hadron Collider. Read More

The predictions for the Higgs mass in extensions of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model are discussed. We propose a simple theory where the Higgs mass is modified at tree-level and one can achieve a mass around 125 GeV without assuming heavy stops or large left-right mixing in the stop sector. All the parameters in the theory can be perturbative up to the grand unified scale, and one predicts the existence of new colored fields at the TeV scale. Read More

Baryon number violating interactions could modify the signatures of supersymmetric models at the Large Hadron Collider. In this article we investigate the predictions for the Higgs mass and the Higgs decays in a simple extension of the minimal supersymmetric standard model where the local baryon and lepton numbers are spontaneously broken at the TeV scale. This theory predicts baryon number violation at the low scale which can change the current LHC bounds on the supersymmetric spectrum. Read More

The spontaneous breaking of SU(4) heterotic standard models by Z_3 x Z_3 Wilson lines to the MSSM with three right-handed neutrino supermultiplets and gauge group SU(3)_C x SU(2)_L x U(1) x U(1) is explored. The two-dimensional subspace of the Spin(10) Lie algebra that commutes with su(3)_C + su(2)_L is analyzed. It is shown that there is a unique basis for which the initial soft supersymmetry breaking parameters are uncorrelated and for which the U(1) x U(1) field strengths have no kinetic mixing at any scale. Read More

We investigate the simplest gauge theory for spontaneous R-parity breaking and its testability at the LHC. This theory based on a local B-L gauge symmetry can be considered as the simplest framework for understanding the origin of the R-parity violating interactions, giving rise to potential lepton number violating signals and suppressed baryon number violating operators. The full spectrum of the theory and the constraints coming from neutrino masses are analyzed in great detail. Read More

In this article we present a simple theoretical framework where the origin of the mu-term and the matter-parity violating interactions of the minimal supersymmetric standard model can be understood from the spontaneous breaking of new Abelian gauge symmetries. In this context the masses of the Z' gauge bosons, the M-parity violating scale and the mu-term are determined by the supersymmetry breaking scale. The full spectrum of the theory is discussed in detail. Read More

The fate of R-parity in the context of the minimal supersymmetric standard model is a central issue which has profound implications for particle physics and cosmology. In this article we discuss the possibility of testing the mechanism responsible for the stability of the lightest supersymmetric particle at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The simplest theoretical framework where R-parity conservation can be explained dynamically allows for two types of B-L models. Read More

The lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) is a natural candidate for the cold dark matter of the universe. In this Letter we discuss how to test the mechanism responsible for the LSP stability at the LHC. We note that if R-parity is conserved dynamically one should expect a Higgs boson which decays mainly into two right-handed neutrinos (a "leptonic" Higgs) or into two sfermions. Read More

The possibility to search for lepton number violating signals at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the colored seesaw scenario is investigated. In this context the fields that generate neutrino masses at the one-loop level are scalar and Majorana fermionic color-octets of SU(3). Due to the QCD strong interaction these states may be produced at the LHC with a favorable rate. Read More

In this letter we point out that in a class of models for spontaneous R-parity breaking based on gauged B-L, the spectrum for neutrinos is quite peculiar. We find that those models generally predict three layers of neutrinos: one heavy sterile neutrino, two massive active neutrinos, and three near massless (one active and two sterile) neutrinos. Read More

The possible origin of the R-parity violating interactions in the minimal supersymmetric standard model and its connection to the radiative symmetry breaking mechanism (RSBM) is investigated. In the context of the simplest model where the implementation of the RSBM is possible, we find that in the majority of the parameter space R-parity is spontaneously broken at the low-scale. These results hint at the possibility that R-parity violating processes will be observed at the Large Hadron Collider, if Supersymmetry is realized in nature. Read More

We present a simple scenario for gauge mediated supersymmetry breaking where the messengers are also the fields that generate neutrino masses. We show that the simplest such scenario corresponds to the case where neutrino masses are generated through the Type I and Type III seesaw mechanisms. The entire supersymmetric spectrum and Higgs masses are calculable from only four input parameters. Read More

Understanding the origin or absence of the R-parity violating interactions in the minimal supersymmetric Standard Model is a vital and open issue. Here we show that in the minimal B-L models, R-parity and B-L are spontaneously broken at the TeV scale. We also briefly discuss the phenomenological and cosmological aspects of these scenarios. Read More

We study a simple extension of the minimal supersymmetric Standard Model in which the Abelian sector of the theory consists of B-L and right-handed isospin. In the minimal model this Abelian gauge structure is broken to the standard model hypercharge gauge group by non-vanishing vacuum expectation values of the right-handed sneutrinos, resulting in spontaneous R-parity violation. This theory can emerge as a low energy effective theory of a left-right symmetric theory realized at a high scale. Read More

We investigate a mechanism for spontaneous R-parity breaking in a class of extensions of the minimal supersymmetric standard model with an extra Abelian gauge symmetry which is a linear combination of B-L and weak hypercharge. Both U(1)_X and R-parity are broken by the vacuum expectation value of the right-handed sneutrinos which is proportional to the soft SUSY masses. In these models the mechanism for spontaneous R-parity violation can be realized even with positive soft masses. Read More

We study the minimal gauged U(1)_{B-L} supersymmetric model and show that it provides an attractive theory for spontaneous R-parity violation. Both U(1)_{B-L} and R-parity are broken by the vacuum expectation value of the right-handed sneutrino (proportional to the soft SUSY masses), thereby linking the B-L and soft SUSY scales. In this context we find a consistent mechanism for generating neutrino masses and a realistic mass spectrum, all without extending the Higgs sector of the minimal supersymmetry standard model. Read More

We propose a simple renormalizable left-right theory where R-parity is spontaneously broken and neutrino masses are generated through the Type I seesaw mechanism and R-parity violation. In this theory R-parity and the gauge symmetry are broken by the sneutrino vacuum expectation values and there is no Majoron problem. The SU(2)_R and R-parity violation scales are determined by the SUSY breaking scale making the model very predictive. Read More
