From the potential given in eq.(36) we can read directly the F-, D- and scalar soft terms which break softly the supersymmetric theory obtained by CSDR over G2/SU (3).
Supersymmetry Breaking by Dimensional Reduction over Coset Spaces
Assume that the effective space for each ui in the soft part is given by a quantity ∆. (∆ is sensitive to the soft k⊥ -cutoff, and an estimate is presented in ref. 1.) Then the total weight for this part becomes ∆N −k .
