Description

Vacuum stability bounds on flavor-violating trilinear soft terms are revisited from the viewpoint that one should not rule out parameter space that leads to a metastable standard vacuum if it is sufficiently long-lived. Bounds are obtained by numerical computation of false vacuum decay rate. Implications are discussed on future searches for FCNC processes.
