Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
Naturalness in Supergravity Models: The Higgs Mass and Higgsino Mass
Date: Tuesday, May 12th
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Sujeet Akula, Monash University
Abstract: The minimal supergravity model is deeply affected by the Higgs boson mass measurement, but is not conclusively unnatural. We discuss the implications for the LHC and for direct detection of dark matter which are striking, along with the effect on other physics at the weak scale. Finally, we discuss a new type of model in supergravity grand unification, guided by the currently available data.
