Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
A Fashionably Late Higgs
Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Jamison Galloway, University of Rome La Sapienza
Abstract: As the LHC continues to strengthen exclusions on a low-mass Higgs, it could soon become more important to consider cases where a heavy Higgs can be nicely accommodated by theory. In this talk, the current exclusions for a low mass Higgs will be applied to generic (meta) models, casting some doubt on their most natural incarnations. Subsequently, the case will be made for an alternative class of models with a SUSY Higgs whose mass can be well beyond the MSSM upper bound without the need for unnaturally heavy superpartners. Finally, the distinctive phenomenology of this framework and its prospects at the LHC will be discussed.
