    new to flipped-SU(5)

    wish to learn some intro stuffs on this gauge model: flipped-SU(5), its structure, phenomenologies, properties...etc.
    can someone kind enough to suggest some references, review articles which discuss this topic extensively?

    thanks in advance

    See section 1.4 of this paper. I worked out the details of the higgsing of fSU(5) -> standard model. As for more detailed phenomenology, I'd check papers by Nanopoulous (if I spelled his name correctly).

    The main difference is that the 10 is used for higgsing, as opposed to the 24 + higher reps in traditional SU(5) GUTs.

    thanks Ben!
    nice stuff.
    Yeah, I started reading some paper by J. Ellis, D. Nanopoulos.. but many of them are in the context of SUSY or String, which is not what I want... I am just a lowly neutrino physics man
    anyway,.. still looking and reading
    :smile:
    thanks again.

    You also might check out the original Barr paper, which is available on SPIRES.
