Supersymmetric particle phenomenology has been thoroughly discussed within the last few years [1]. A surprising development was that super-gravity could be a source of supersymmetry breaking. If we start from a supersymmetric model and couple it to supergravity then we construct a theory with a ground state that is usually not supersymmetric. Various models which are phenomenologically acceptable have been based on this idea. Some of these models even generate a hierarchy.
