I was attempting to read this paper after watching a show with Brian Greene. As I understand it, sparticles are a prediction of supersymetry, so I was wondering:
Wouldn't the discovery of supersymmetry lend validity to string theory? Isn't this a testable result, or is this type of supersymmetry predicted by most models?
As I understand it, sparticles require very high energies to detect. Are they candidates for non-baryonic particles?
