Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
Strongly-Interacting Supersymmetry: Theoretical Motivations and Phenomenology
Time: 12:30 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Lauren Pearce, UCLA
Abstract: Current evidence from the LHC has pushed us to consider novel implementations of supersymmetry. One possibility is strongly-interacting supersymmetry, in which the trilinear couplings between the Higgs bosons and squarks are large; in such models, the squarks form bound states. In this talk, I will discuss theoretical motivations for such models (for example, that supersymmetry breaking can trigger electroweak symmetry breaking) and phenomenological concerns, including the possibility of electroweak baryogenesis and signals for ongoing LHC searches.
