Unlike other symmetries (like electroweak symmetry), SUSY is spontaneously broken at any non-zero temperature due to some variation of the fact that the boundary conditions on bosons and fermions in thermal QFT are different. If this is the case, what is the rationale for considering SUSY phenomenological models? ie. how valid is the assumption that temperature remains zero up until the point that the energy in the initial universe falls below the SUSY breaking energy scale?
