Supersymmetric musings on the productivity of family symmetries

by Kenji Kadota, Jorn Kersten and Liliana Velasco-Sevilla

Document info: Pages 21, Figures 4.

We discuss the predictivity of family symmetries for the soft supersymmetry breaking parameters in the framework of supergravity. We show that unknown details of the messenger sector and the supersymmetry breaking hidden sector enter into the soft parameters, making it difficult to obtain robust predictions. We find that there are specific choices of messenger fields which can improve the predictivity for the soft parameters.
