Beyond the Standard Model

  • Giuliano GustavinoEmail author
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The Standard Model is not believed to be the fundamental and complete theory to describe Nature for several unsolved and still unexplained limitations. In this chapter a few observed anomalies will be outlined and an overview of the supersymmetric and the extra-spatial dimensions theories will be given which provide solutions to these deficiencies.
