Graviton

A theoretically deduced particle postulated as the quantum of the gravitational field. According to Einstein's theory of general relativity, accelerated masses (or other distributions of energy) should emit gravitational waves, just as accelerated charges emit electromagnetic waves. And according to quantum field theory, such a radiation field should be quantized; that is, its energy should appear in discrete quanta, called gravitons, just as the energy of light appears in discrete quanta, namely photons.

As a comparison to the above estimate, a quantum mechanical prediction of the lifetime of the [3.sub.p] - [1.sub.s] state for emitting a graviton is about 1.9 x [10.sup.39] s [10,11], which is within a few orders of magnitude of the fully classical estimate above.

Por ejemplo, cuando en un modelo SUSY promovemos la supersimetria a un nivel local, en forma similar a como construimos campos gauge en el SM, debemos incluir un super-campo gauge, que resulta siendo el campo gravitacional, mediado por el graviton (una particula sin masa de espin 2) y su companero SUSY, el gravitino (masivo y de espin 3/2).
