Supersymmetry violation in elementary-particle-monopole scattering

Aharon Casher, Yigal Shamir

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We show that the scattering of elementary particles on solitons (monopoles, fluxons, etc.) in supersymmetric gauge theories violates the relations dictated by supersymmetry at tree level. The violation arises because of the discrepancy between the spectra of bosonic and fermionic fluctuations and because of the fermionic nature of the supersymmetry generators.
