Hierarchies from Fluxes in String Compactifications
, 2002
"... Warped compactifications with significant warping provide one of the few known mechanisms for naturally generating large hierarchies of physical scales. We demonstrate that this mechanism is realizable in string theory, and give examples involving orientifold compactifications of IIB string theory a ..."

, and the hierarchy reflects the small scale of chiral symmetry breaking in the dual gauge theory.
Breaking an Abelian gauge symmetry near a black hole horizon
, 2008
"... I argue that coupling the Abelian Higgs model to gravity plus a negative cosmological constant leads to black holes which spontaneously break the gauge invariance via a charged scalar condensate slightly outside their horizon. This suggests that black holes can superconduct. ..."

Radiative Corrections as the Origin of Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking, Phys. Rev. D7
 A. Linde, Phase Transitions in Gauge Theories
, 1973
"... Using a functional formalism, we investigate the effect of radiative corrections on the possibility of spontaneous symmetry breaking. We find that in some models, in particular, massless gauge theories with scalar mesons, the radiative corrections can induce spontaneous symmetry breaking, even thoug ..."

Symmetry Breaking In Distributed Networks

"... Given a ring of n processors it is required to design the processors such that they will be able to choose a leader (a uniquely designated processor) by sending messages along the ring. If the processors are indistinguishable then there exists no deterministic algorithm to solve the problem. To over ..."

Given a ring of n processors it is required to design the processors such that they will be able to choose a leader (a uniquely designated processor) by sending messages along the ring. If the processors are indistinguishable then there exists no deterministic algorithm to solve the problem. To overcome this difficulty, probabilistic algorithms are proposed. The algorithms may run forever but they terminate within finite time on the average. For the synchronous case several algorithms are presented: The simplest requires, on the average, the transmission of no more than 2.442n bits and O (n) time. More sophisticated algorithms trade time for communication complexity. If the processors work asynchronously then on the average O (nlogn) bits are transmitted. In the above cases the size of the ring was assumed to be known to all the processors. If the size is not known then finding it may be done only with high probability: any algorithm may yield incorrect results (with nonzero probabilit...
Symmetry Breaking in Constraint Programming
 Proceedings of ECAI2000
, 2000
"... We describe a method for symmetry breaking during search (SBDS) in constraint programming. It has the great advantage of not interfering with heuristic choices. It guarantees to return a unique solution from each set of symmetrically equivalent ones, which is the one found first by the variable and ..."

The second part of this review is devoted to the Higgs sector of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. The properties of the neutral and charged Higgs bosons of the extended Higgs sector are summarized and their decay modes and production mechanisms at hadron colliders and at future lepton colliders are discussed. The total decay widths of the neutral and charged MSSM Higgs bosons and their production cross sections at the LHC and at a 500 GeV e + e − collider in the main channels.

Breaking row and column symmetries in matrix models

"... Abstract. We identify an important class of symmetries in constraint programming, arising from matrices of decision variables where rows and columns can be swapped. Whilst lexicographically ordering the rows (columns) breaks all the row (column) symmetries, lexicographically ordering both the rows ..."
