Abstract
The effects of the scale dependent vacuum expectation values (VEVs) on the running masses of quarks and leptons in non-SUSY gauge theories have been considered by a number of authors. Here we use RGEs of the VEVs, and the gauge and Yukawa couplings in the MSSM to analytically derive new one loop formulas for the running masses above the SUSY breaking scale. Some of the masses exhibit a substantially different behaviour with respect to their dependence on the gauge and Yukawa couplings when compared with earlier formulas in the MSSM derived ignoring RGEs of VEVs. In particular, the masses of the first two generations are found to be independent of the Yukawa couplings of the third generation in the small mixing limit. New numerical estimates at the two loop level are also presented.
