Considering the supersymmetric Higgs mass (μ-parameter) as a dynamical variable to be determined by minimizing the energy, we predict its value as a function of the soft masses of the potential. We find that μ has a nonzero value close to the weak scale. This scenario offers a simultaneous solution to the doublet-triplet splitting problem and to the μ-problem. We discuss its viability in theories with gauge mediated supersymmetry breaking. © 1997 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
