Intermediate scale as a source of lepton flavor violation in SUSY SO(10). Academic Article uri icon


  • In supersymmetric SO(10) grand unified models, we examine the lepton flavor violation process e from having the SU(2)RU(1)B-L gauge symmetry broken at an intermediate scale MG below the SO(10) grand unification scale MG. Even in the case that supersymmetry is broken by universal soft terms introduced at the scale, we find significant rates for (formula presented) with GeV or less. These rates are further enhanced if the universal soft terms appear at a scale greater than MG. 1996 The American Physical Society.
