ABSTRACT This paper describes unification of the Higgs doublet in the standard model and the Higgs field to break the grand unified theory group to stabilize the sliding singlet mechanism which can solve the doublet-triplet splitting problem. This attractive mechanism has been generalized to apply it to many unified scenarios. This research attempts to build various concrete E6 unified models by using the generalized sliding singlet mechanism.

    ABSTRACT: We analyze CP asymmetries of B to phi K_S and B to eta' K_S in a supersymmetric grand unified theory in which only the third generation sfermions contained in 10 (Q, U^c, E^c) of SU(5) can have a different mass from the others. One of the advantages of this nonuniversal mass model is that the first two generation sfermion masses can be large whereas both (left and right handed) stops are light so as to stabilize the weak scale. Therefore, we studied a minimal supersymmetric standard model parameter region in which a fine tuning in Higgs sector is relaxed owing to light masses of stops, gluino and higgsinos. In such a parameter region, the chargino contribution is as important as the gluino one. We show that the CP asymmetries of B to phi K_S and B to eta' K_S can deviate from their standard model predicted values by O(0.1) because of constructive interference between gluino and chargino contributions.

    ABSTRACT: We present a new solution to the doublet-triplet splitting problem which also works in a supersymmetric SU(5) grand unified theory and is testable at TeV-scale collider experiments. In our model, the SU(5) symmetry is broken through the Hosotani mechanism. Thanks to the phase nature of the Hosotani-breaking, the "missing VEV" can be realized even in an SU(5) model. A general and distinctive prediction of this solution is the existence of light adjoint chiral supermultiplets with masses of the supersymmetry breaking scale. Though these disturb the gauge coupling unification, it can be recovered keeping the unified gauge coupling constant perturbative by introducing additional vector-like particles, which may be also observed in the upcoming collider experiments.

    ABSTRACT: The grand unified theories are theoretically well motivated, but they typically have less direct indications on the low energy physics and it is not easy to test them. Here, we discuss a scenario of them which naturally solves the so-called doublet-triplet splitting problem and, at the same time, generally predicts characteristic collider phenomenology. Then, we may get a hint on the breaking of the grand unified symmetry at the on-going and next-generation collider experiments.
