    Default SWaB: SUSY as physics greatest failure



    It looks like everyone forgets the RHIC experiment with SUSY strings useful..... https://www.forbes.com/sites/startsw...E#2d2fb11769e6

    Default Re: SWaB: SUSY as physics greatest failure

    So just let's recall the relative success of SUSY string theory at BNL's RHIC:

    https://www.bnl.gov/rhic/news/091107/story2.asp

    https://www.bnl.gov/rhic_ags/users_m...atsuume_v2.pdf

    Is this enough of a fig leaf to save SUSY strings? There are two questions here one is scientific one is political.

    Clearly from the SWaB article the broader community is disinclined to recall the RHIC results as indicating a success for SUSY strings. That seems like a political question, forgetting a confirmation. But there is no reason to think that the results on understanding the RHIC experiments are UNIQUELY understandable ONLY through SUSY strings and the AdS correspondence. That's OK then. It could be that there is another theoretical method that has the same nice properties.

    The troubling thing is that a clear and clean falsification of SUSY strings is simply not possible. One is searching in a space of interaction strength versus mass for SUSY particles. Accelerators much larger aren't going to be built, necessarily, so a clean lab search is going to be harder and harder to justify. Astrophysical searches are problematic because the parameter space CANNOT be searched for interaction cross sections that are weaker than the Cosmic Neutrino Background. So the SUSY string devotee will always have somewhere in parameter space to hide from falsification. At that point it looks like SUSY strings and MOND folks then have a lot in common.

    So I stop short of saying SUSY strings are falsified. But I agree it's time to try something completely different.
