Low Energy Supergravity: The Minimal Model

  • Joseph Polchinski
Part of the Progress in Physics book series (PMP, volume 9)


This is a review of recent models in which N = 1 supergravity plays a role in the physics at the weak interaction scale. I focus on models with the minimal low energy particle content — the non-supersymmetric standard model, plus an additional Higgs, plus the superpartners of these. My contribution to this was done in collaboration with M. Wise and L. Alvarez-Gaumé.
