Content

Dark Matter: Is observable R-violation compatible with

SUSY DM?

Gravitino decays in R-violating SUSY

Couplings & Flavour Effects

Link to Lepton flavour violation: R-violation versus MSSM

Conclusions


Gravitino dark matter in r violating susy

Motivation for R-violating supersymmetry

In addition to couplings generating fermion masses,

also

- These violate lepton and baryon number

- If simultaneously present, unacceptable p decay


Gravitino dark matter in r violating susy

Ways out:

X Either kill all couplings via R-parity (SM: +1 , SUSY: -1)

LSP: stable, dark matter candidate

Colliders: Missing energy

  • Or allow subsets by baryon / lepton parities

    LSP: unstable – lose (?) a dark matter candidate

    Colliders: Multi-lepton/jet events


Gravitino dark matter in r violating susy

Gravitino DM in R-violating supersymmetry?

  • If LSP a gravitino, its decays very suppressed by Mp

  • The lighter the gravitino, the longer the lifetime

    Questions:can gravitinos be DM even with broken R-parity?

    Can we hope for BOTH DM AND R-violation in colliders?

    Answer:depends on how gravitinos decay under R-violation


Gravitino dark matter in r violating susy

3-body trilinear R-violating decays

Chemtob, Moreau

Suppressed by:

  • Gravitino vertex (~1/Mp)

  • Phase space / fermion masses

    (for light gravitino and heavy fermions)


Gravitino dark matter in r violating susy

2-body bi-linear R-violating decays

Takayama, Yamaguchi

Buchmuler et al.

Suppressed by:

  • Gravitino vertex (~1/Mp)

  • Neutralino-neutrino mixing

    (model dependent)


Gravitino dark matter in r violating susy

Radiative 2-body trilinear R-violating decays

SL, P. Osland, A. Raklev

Suppressed by:

  • Gravitino vertex (~1/Mp)

  • Loop factors (~ fermion mass)


Gravitino dark matter in r violating susy

Radiative decays dominate for:

Smaller gravitino masses

R and L violation via operators of the 3rd generation

Small neutrino-neutralino mixing

Large gravitino lifetime (can be DM), due to:

Gravitational suppression of its couplings

Smallness of R-violating vertices

Loop, phase space, or mixing effects

Maximum stability

(neither radiative nor tree-level decays)!


Gravitino dark matter in r violating susy

Radiative versus 3-body decays

Couplings ~10^(-4) for consistency with the photon spectrum


Gravitino dark matter in r violating susy

NLSP decays

- No source of suppression other than R-violating couplings

- Decay well before BBN compatible with gravitino DM


Gravitino dark matter in r violating susy

R-violating signals: couplings & LSP decays

R-parity violating coupling

Ordinary MSSM neutralino coupling

Neutr. Decays to 3 SM particles


Gravitino dark matter in r violating susy

Link to Flavour Effects

in Fermion Masses

(i.e. Why the top mass so much larger than all others?)

Invariance under symmetry determines mass hierarchies

  • Charges such that only Top-coupling 0 flavour charge

    XAll others forbidden, only appear in higher orders

    Higher charge(lower generation) implies larger suppression


Gravitino dark matter in r violating susy

Flavour effects

  • SM symmetries allow 45 R-violating operators

  • Lepton & Baryon Parities forbid subsets of them

Baryon Parity:only

Bilinear R-violation allowed

  • Bilinear R-violation forbidden

  • μ term i.e. by Giudice-Masiero mech.

  • or Hall, Lykken, Weinberg mech.

Lepton Parity:only

If Z3not flavour-blind, could chose even subsets within


Gravitino dark matter in r violating susy

An example (King, Ross)

R-violating couplings of 3rd generation

(leading to large radiative decays) naturally higher

Neutrinos in R-violating SUSY

1-loop neutrino mass contributions:

R-violation: Correlated Rates depending on coupling combinations

(A. de Gouvea, S.L, K. Tobe)

To be compared with 160 and 0.92 in MSSM

(where on shell photon penguin dominates)

Conclusions

  • R-violating SUSY equally motivated with MSSM

  • Interesting signals but also strong bounds

  • Possible to have both gravitino DM AND

    observable R-violation in colliders

  • Results sensitive to flavour effects
