Abstract

We propose a new realization of softly broken supersymmetric theories as theories defined on stochastic superspace. At the classical level, the supersymmetry breaking is parametrized in terms of a single (in general complex) mass parameter, ξ, describing the stochasticity of the Grassmannian superspace coordinates. In the context of the standard model with stochastic supersymmetry, the structure of the soft-breaking terms has various characteristic features that can be tested in LHC experiments. Namely, at the classical level, the Bμ parameter, the universal soft trilinear coupling A0, the universal gaugino mass m1/2, and the universal scalar mass m0 are given solely in terms of ξ; there are..
