In the Standard Model, the natural scale for the dimension-two Higgs coupling, $m_H^2$, is the Planck scale, because it takes radiative corrections $\delta M_H^2 \sim M_P^2$. The $\mu$-parameter in the MSSM (or any softly-broken SUSY theory), however, is protected from quadratic divergences by supersymmetry (see the non-renormalization theorem). There is ...

The Lorentz group $O(3,1)$ has spinor representations (actually $SL(2,\mathbb C)$, that is the universal cover of $O(3,1)$), as well known. The problem is that now, in general relativity, we want to deal with generic transformations. So we are working with G$L(4)$. Roughly speaking, the associated Lie Algebra $\mathfrak{gl}(4)$ doesn't admit spinor ...

Lorentz spinors appear as irreducible representations of the group SL(2,C). Elements of the group are 2x2 matrices with complex entries and unity determinant. A Lorentz spinor is a two component vector $\psi^{A},\chi^{A}\in V_{2}$ with $A=1,2$. The Levi-Civita tensor $\epsilon_{AB}$ is an invariant tensor under SL(2,C). This means that if we have an irrep ...
