The time-dependent approach to calculate half-lives for proton-emitting nuclei is reviewed. Doubts about the practicability of this new method are eliminated by showing that it directly leads to the main observable (the average decay rate), that the result does not depend on the prescription used to prepare the initial state or to define the nuclear border and that the method can be applied to low-lying as well as to highly excited states

    Grand Unified Theories based on the group SO(10) generically provide interesting and testable relations between the charged fermions and neutrino sector masses and mixings. In the light of the recent neutrino data, we reexamine these relations both in supersymmetric and non-supersymmetric...

    A gauged U(1)B-L symmetry predicts three right handed handed neutrinos and its spontaneous breaking automatically yields the seesaw mechanism. In a supersymmetric setting this breaking can be nicely linked with inflation to yield δT/T proportional to (MB-L/MP)2, where MB-L (MP) denote the B -...

    We give an explicit formula for the proton decay rate in the minimal renormalizable supersymmetric (SUSY) SO(10) model. In this model, the Higgs fields consist of the 10 and $\mathbf{\overline{126}}$ SO(10) representations in the Yukawa interactions with matter and of the 10,...

    We report on the calculation of the matrix elements of nucleon to pseudoscalar decay through a three quark operator, a part of the low-energy, four-fermion, baryon-number-violating operator originating from grand unified theories. The direct calculation of the form factors using domain-wall...

    Finite Unified Theories (FUTs) are N=1 supersymmetric Grand Unified Theories, which can be made all-loop finite, both in the gauge and Yukawa couplings and in the soft supersymmetry breaking sector. This remarkable property, based on the reduction of couplings at the quantum level, provides a...

    We deconstruct the non-supersymmetric SU(5) breaking by discrete symmetry on the space-time M4 × S¹ and M4 × S¹/(Z2 × Z'2) in the Eggs mechanism deconstruction scenario. Also we explain the subtle point of how to exactly match the continuum results with the latticized results...

    Proton decay with the modes and rates predicted by the original SU(5) grand unification scheme conserving (B-L) is not observed experimentally. There are reasons to expect that (B-L) might not be conserved in nature. Among possible observable manifestations of (B-L) non-conservation are Majorana...

    We show that the N=3 harmonic superfield equations of motion are invariant with respect to the fourth supersymmetry. We also use the SU(3) harmonics to analyze a more flexible form of superfield constraints for the Abelian N=4 vector multiplet and its N=3 decomposition. An unusual alternative...
