Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
Sister Higgs
Date: Friday, February 8th
Time: 2:15 pm - 3:15 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Daniele Alves, Fermilab
Abstract: I will discuss some of the implications of the recently measured Higgs mass for Supersymmetry. In the MSSM, a Higgs mass of 125 GeV can only be accommodated with significant fine tuning. Extending the MSSM Higgs sector can alleviate fine tuning, but its simplest extension (the NMSSM) requires pushing some parameters to non-perturbative values. In this talk I will discuss extensions of the MSSM Higgs sector in an attempt to accommodate the Higgs mass in a natural and perturbative way. I will also discuss its phenomenology implications.
