    2003-01-01

    We perform for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) a detailed study of charged Higgs boson production via the top-bottom quark associated mode followed by decays into a chargino and a neutralino, with masses and couplings as given by the general minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM). We focus our attention on the region of parameter space with m sub H sup sub+- > m sub t and intermediate values of tan beta, where identification of H sup+- via decays into standard model (SM) particles has proven to be ineffective. Modelling the CMS detector, we find that a signature consisting of three hard leptons accompanied by a hadronically reconstructed top quark plus substantial missing transverse energy, which may result from H sup+-->X sub 1 sub , sub 2 sup+-X sub 1 sub , sub 2 sub , sub 3 sub , sub 4 sup 0 decays, can be made viable over a large variety of initially overwhelming SM and MSSM backgrounds, provided MSSM input parameters are favourable: notably, small vertical stroke mu vertical stroke and light slepto...

  2. An Interpretation of Tevatron SUSY Trilepton Search Results in mSUGRA and in a Model-independent Fashion

    Both the CDF and D0 experiments at the Tevatron search for supersymmetry using the golden three lepton and missing energy "trilepton" signature of chargino-neutralino production. However, the experimental results are presented for specific parameter values of a given model or for custom-made scenarios in the region of sensitivity. By breaking down search sensitivity according to the tau-lepton content of the trileptons, we are able to present in this paper a recipe to extend the interpretation of the Tevatron trilepton search results to the general mSUGRA model. We also attempt to interprete the search results in a model-independent fashion by expressing them in terms of relevant sparticle masses instead of specific parameters of a model such as mSUGRA.

    At the Tevatron, the most promising channel to detect supersymmetry is three leptons plus missing energy, where the leptons are $e$'s and/or $\\mu$'s. This final state appears from the production of chargino and second lighetst neutralino. However in grand unified models with universal scalar masses at the grand unified scale, this final state mostly consists of $\\tau$'s which are hard to detect. We show that for some regions of non universality in the scalar masses at the GUT scale based on unifying groups like SU(5) or SO(10), the final state mostly consists of 3$l$+${\\rlap/E}_T$ and $\\tau ll$+${\\rlap/E}_T$. The first mode has very high detection efficiency and the second one is expected to have high detection efficency as well. We also show that these models can have enough events in these modes to be detected in RUN II.

    Abelian vector bosons can get massive through the Stueckelberg mechanism without spontaneous symmetry breaking via condensation of Higgs scalar fields. This appears very naturally in models derived from string theory and supergravity. The simplest scenarios of this type consist of extensions of the Standard Model (SM) or the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) by an extra U(1)_X gauge group with Stueckelberg type couplings. For the SM, the physical spectrum is extended by a massive neutral gauge boson Z' only, while the extension of the MSSM contains a CP-even neutral scalar and two extra neutralinos. The new gauge boson Z' can be very light compared to other models with U(1)' extensions. Among the new features of the Stueckelberg extension of the MSSM, the most striking is the possibility of a new lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) chi_{St}^0 which is mostly composed of Stueckelberg fermions. In this scenario the LSP of the MSSM chi_1^0 is unstable and decays into chi_{St}^0. Such decays alter t...

  6. Portal to non-MSSM models using kinematic edges

    2016-01-01

    A heavy Higgs like resonance ($H_1$) is a characteristic feature of many new physics scenarios beyond the Standard Model (SM). In the event of a discovery it is essential to identify the true nature of underlying theory. In this work we propose a channel, $H_1\\rightarrow t_2t$, where $t_2$ is a vector-like gauge singlet top-partner that decays into $Wb, Zt,ht$. We construct different invariant mass distributions which are characterized by the presence of kinematic edges, unique to the topology under consideration. Using these kinematic edges, the masses of the heavy resonances can be extracted upto a reasonable accuracy. Observation of these features are meant to serve as a trigger, thereby mandating a more detailed analysis in a particular direction of parameter space. The absence of these vector-like states in minimal versions of supersymmetric models (MSSM) also serves as a harbinger of such non MSSM-like scenarios.

    We report on a search for the trilepton decay signature from the associated production of supersymmetric gaugino pairs, χ~+/-1χ~02, within the context of minimal supersymmetric models that conserve R parity. This search uses 95 pb-1 of pp¯ data taken at s = 1.8 TeV with the D0 detector. No evidence of a trilepton signature has been found, and a limit on the product of cross section times branching fraction to trileptons is given as a function of χ~+/-1 mass.

    Using finite discrete group characters and symmetry breaking by hyperflux as well as constraints on top-quark family, we study minimal low energy effective theory following from SU5 ×D4 models embedded in F-theory with non-abelian flux. Matter curves spectrum of the models is obtained from SU5 ×S5 theory with monodromy S5 by performing two breakings: first from symmetric group S5 to S4 subsymmetry, and next to dihedral D4 subgroup. As a consequence, and depending on the ways of decomposing triplets of S4, we end with three types of D4-models. Explicit constructions of these theories are given and a MSSM-like spectrum is derived.

    String theory constructions towards the MSSM allow us to identify some general properties that could be relevant for tests at the LHC. They originate from the geometric structure of compactification and the location of fields in extra-dimensional space. Within the framework of the heterotic MiniLandscape we extract some generic lessons for supersymmetric model building. Among them is a specific pattern of SUSY breakdown based on mirage mediation and remnants of extended supersymmetry. This leads to a split spectrum with heavy scalars of the first two families of quarks and leptons and suppressed masses for gauginos, top partners and Higgs bosons. The models exhibit some specific form of hidden supersymmetry consistent with the high mass of the Higgs boson and all presently available experimental constraints. The most compelling picture is based on precision gauge coupling unification that might be in the kinematic reach of the LHC. (orig.)

    In this work, we probe a class of neutrino mass models through the lepton flavor violating interactions of a singlet charged scalar, $S^{\\pm}$ at the LHC proton-proton collisions with 8 \\textrm{TeV} and 14 \\textrm{TeV} energies. This scalar couples to the leptons and induces many processes such as $pp\\rightarrow\\ell^{\\pm}\\ell^{\\pm}\\ell^{\\mp}+\\slashed{E}_{T}$. In our analysis we discuss the opposite sign same flavor leptons signal, as well as the background free channel with the tau contribution which can enhance the signal/background ratio for center of mass energies $\\sqrt{s}$= 8 \\textrm{TeV} and $\\sqrt{s}$ = 14 \\textrm{TeV}.

    We perform a global Bayesian fit of the phenomenological minimal supersymmetric standard model (pMSSM) to current indirect collider and dark matter data. The pMSSM contains the most relevant 25 weak-scale MSSM parameters, which are simultaneously fit using `nested sampling' Monte Carlo techniques in more than 15 years of CPU time. We calculate the Bayesian evidence for the pMSSM and constrain its parameters and observables in the context of two widely different, but reasonable, priors to determine which inferences are robust. We make inferences about sparticle masses, the sign of the $\\mu$ parameter, the amount of fine tuning, dark matter properties and the prospects for direct dark matter detection without assuming a restrictive high-scale supersymmetry breaking model. We find the inferred lightest CP-even Higgs boson mass as an example of an approximately prior independent observable. This analysis constitutes the first statistically convergent pMSSM global fit to all current data.

    A search is described for the neutral Higgs bosons h^0 and A^0 predicted by models with two scalar field doublets and, in particular, the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). The search in the Z^0 h^0 and h^0 A^0 production channels is based on data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 25 pb^{-1} from e^+e^- collisions at centre-of-mass energies between 130 and 172GeV collected with the OPAL detector at LEP. The observation of a number of candidates consistent with Standard Model background expectations is used in combination with earlier results from data collected at the Z^0 resonance to set limits on m_h and m_A in general models with two scalar field doublets and in the MSSM. For example, in the MSSM, for tan(beta) > 1, minimal and maximal scalar top quark mixing and soft SUSY-breaking masses of 1 TeV, the 95% confidence level limits m_h > 59.0 GeV and m_A > 59.5 GeV are obtained. For the first time, the MSSM parameter space is explored in a detailed scan.

    Weak boson fusion is expected to be an important Higgs production channel at the LHC. Complete one-loop results for weak boson fusion in the Standard Model have been obtained by calculating the full virtual electroweak corrections and photon radiation and implementing these results into the public Monte Carlo program VBFNLO (which includes the NLO QCD corrections). Furthermore the dominant supersymmetric one-loop corrections to neutral Higgs production, in the general case where the MSSM includes complex phases, have been calculated. These results have been combined with all one-loop corrections of Standard Model type and with the propagator-type corrections from the Higgs sector of the MSSM up to the two-loop level. Within the Standard Model the electroweak corrections are found to be as important as the QCD corrections after the application of appropriate cuts. The corrections yield a shift in the cross section of order 5% for a Higgs of mass 100-200 GeV, confirming the result obtained previously in the literature. For the production of a light Higgs boson in the MSSM the Standard Model result is recovered in the decoupling limit, while the loop contributions from superpartners to the production of neutral MSSM Higgs bosons can give rise to corrections in excess of 10% away from the decoupling region.

    The FeynArts model file MSSMdreg2dred implements MSSM transition counterterms which can convert one-loop Green functions from dimensional regularization to dimensional reduction. They correspond to a slight extension of the well-known Martin/Vaughn counterterms, specialized to the MSSM, and can serve also as supersymmetry-restoring counterterms. The paper provides full analytic results for the counterterms and gives one- and two-loop usage examples. The model file can simplify combining MS¯-parton distribution functions with supersymmetric renormalization or avoiding the renormalization of ɛ-scalars in dimensional reduction.

    We point out that the electroweak fine-tuning problem in the supersymmetric standard models (SSMs) is mainly due to the high energy definition of the fine-tuning measure. We propose supernatural supersymmetry which has an order one high energy fine-tuning measure automatically. The key point is that all the mass parameters in the SSMs arise from a single supersymmetry breaking parameter. In this paper, we show that there is no supersymmetry electroweak fine-tuning problem explicitly in the minimal SSM (MSSM) with no-scale supergravity and Giudice-Masiero mechanism. We demonstrate that the Z -boson mass, the supersymmetric Higgs mixing parameter μ at the unification scale, and the sparticle spectrum can be given as functions of the universal gaugino mass M1 /2. Because the light stau is the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) in the no-scale MSSM, to preserve R parity, we introduce a non-thermally generated axino as the LSP dark matter candidate. We estimate the lifetime of the light stau by calculating its two-body and three-body decays to the LSP axino for several values of axion decay constant fa, and find that the light stau has a lifetime ττ ˜1 in [10-4,100 ] s for an fa range [109,1012] GeV . We show that our next to the LSP stau solutions are consistent with all the current experimental constraints, including the sparticle mass bounds, B-physics bounds, Higgs mass, cosmological bounds, and the bounds on long-lived charged particles at the LHC.

    Using instanton effects, we discuss the problem of fermion mass hierarchies in an MSSM-like Type IIA orientifolded model with U(3)xSp(1)xU(1)xU(1) gauge symmetry obtained from intersecting D6-branes. In the corresponding four-stack quiver, the different scales of the generated superpotential couplings offer a partial solution to fermion mass hierarchies. Using the known data with neutrino masses m_{v_{\\tau}}\\lesssim 2 eV, we give the magnitudes of the relevant scales.

  17. The Effective MSSM

    Kobakhidze, Archil

    2015-01-01

    We suggest an effective field theory framework to discuss deviations from the minimal supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) which is based on an alternative arrangement of the gauge-Higgs sector. In this effective MSSM (EffMSSM) nonlinearly realised $SU(2)\\times U(1)$ gauge sector is described by an $SU(2)\\times U(1)$-valued massive vector superfield, which contains a neutral CP-even and charged Higgs fields, while another neutral CP-even Higgs and the neutral CP-odd Higgs fields are residing in an $SU(2)\\times U(1)$-singlet chiral superfield. Although the new theory contains the same particle content as the conventional MSSM, the unconventional representation of superfields allows for new type of interactions, which may lead to a significant modification of the phenomenology. As an illustrative example we consider EffMSSM with modified Higgs and electroweak gauge sector augmented by gaugino soft supersymmetry breaking masses, $M_i~ (i=1,2,3)$ and the Standard Higgs soft-breaking masses, $m_{H_u}=m_{H_d}$ and ...

  18. Higgs Production via Weak Boson Fusion in the Standard Model and the MSSM

    2012-01-01

    Weak boson fusion is expected to be an important Higgs production channel at the LHC. Complete one-loop results for weak boson fusion in the Standard Model have been obtained by calculating the full virtual electroweak corrections and photon radiation and implementing these results into the public Monte Carlo program VBFNLO which includes the NLO QCD corrections. Furthermore the dominant supersymmetric one-loop corrections to neutral Higgs production, in the general case where the MSSM includes complex phases, have been calculated. These results have been combined with all one-loop corrections of Standard Model type and with the propagator-type corrections from the Higgs sector of the MSSM up to the two-loop level. Within the Standard Model the electroweak corrections are found to be as important as the QCD corrections after the application of appropriate cuts. The corrections yield a shift in the cross section of order 5% for a Higgs of mass 100-200 GeV, confirming the result obtained previously in the liter...

    2016-01-01

    Using a global Bayesian analysis, it is shown how the results from 7 and 8 $\\textrm{TeV}$ searches for supersymmetry performed by the CMS experiment constrain the Minimal Supersymmetric StandardModel (MSSM). The study is performed within the framework of the phenomenologicalMSSM (pMSSM), a 19-parameter realization of the R-parity conserving weak scale MSSM, that captures most of the latter's phenomenological features and which,therefore, permits robust conclusions to be drawn about the MSSM.

  20. MFV Reductions of MSSM Parameter Space

    The 100+ free parameters of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) make it computationally difficult to compare systematically with data, motivating the study of specific parameter reductions such as the cMSSM and pMSSM. Here we instead study the reductions of parameter space implied by using minimal flavour violation (MFV) to organise the R-parity conserving MSSM, with a view towards systematically building in constraints on flavour-violating physics. Within this framework the space of parameters is reduced by expanding soft supersymmetry-breaking terms in powers of the Cabibbo angle, leading to a 24-, 30- or 42-parameter framework (which we call MSSM-24, MSSM-30, and MSSM-42 respectively), depending on the order kept in the expansion. We provide a Bayesian global fit to data of the MSSM-30 parameter set to show that this is manageable with current tools. We compare the MFV reductions to the 19-parameter pMSSM choice and show that the pMSSM is not contained as a subset. The MSSM-30 analysis favours...

    The ATLAS and CMS discovery potential for the MSSM Higgs bosons is reviewed in this paper. The attention is focused on the direct Higgs production and on the Standard Model decay channels. After a short introduction, the most promising final states are discussed, showing that, if supersymmetry exists, its Higgs sector can be explored at LHC with an integrated luminosity of 10 fb$^{-1}$.

    Full Text Available Using finite discrete group characters and symmetry breaking by hyperflux as well as constraints on top-quark family, we study minimal low energy effective theory following from SU5×D4 models embedded in F-theory with non-abelian flux. Matter curves spectrum of the models is obtained from SU5×S5 theory with monodromy S5 by performing two breakings: first from symmetric group S5 to S4 subsymmetry, and next to dihedral D4 subgroup. As a consequence, and depending on the ways of decomposing triplets of S4, we end with three types of D4-models. Explicit constructions of these theories are given and a MSSM-like spectrum is derived.

In case of flavour mixing all masses of supersymmetric particles are calculated including the complete flavour structure and all possible CP-phases at the 1-loop level. We give details on implemented seesaw models, low energy observables and the corresponding extension of the SUSY Les Houches Accord. Moreover, we comment on the possibilities to include MSSM extensions in SPheno.

  6. The MSSM without mu term

    Nelson, A E; Sanz, V; Unsal, M; Nelson, Ann E.; Rius, Nuria; Sanz, Veronica; Unsal, Mithat

    2002-01-01

    We propose a supersymmetric extension of the standard model which does not have a ``mu'' supersymmetric Higgs mass parameter. The matter content of the MSSM is extended with three additional chiral superfields: one singlet, an SU(2) triplet and a color octet, and an approximate U(1)_R symmetry naturally guarantees that tan(beta) is large, explaining the top/bottom quark mass hierarchy. Unlike in the MSSM, there are significant upper bounds on the masses of superpartners, including an upper bound of 114 GeV on the mass of the lightest chargino. However the MSSM bound on the lightest Higgs mass does not apply.

    We investigate the prospect of current and future dark matter and collider experiments in probing anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, $(g-2)_\\mu$, within the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). Imposing constraints from currently available Higgs data, dark matter relic density, PandaX-II/LUX-2016 experiments and LHC searches for dilepton and tripleton events, we find a range of MSSM parameters with the lightest neutralino $m_{\\widetilde{\\chi}^0_{1}}<800$ GeV and the lightest chargino $m_{\\widetilde{\\chi}^\\pm_{1}}<940$ GeV which can accommodate the measured value of $(g-2)_{\\mu}$ within $2\\sigma$ range. We also observe that a large portion of this parameter space cannot fully account for the observed dark matter abundance (within $3\\sigma$ range) and additional dark matter components beyond MSSM are presumably needed. Further to this we demonstrate that the most of the currently allowed parameter space (except for the compressed region) can be fully probed via searches for trilepton events a...

    2011-06-20

    We perform a Bayesian model selection analysis in the R-parity conserving MSSM to compare two different assumptions: whether the lightest neutralinos make all or only part of the cold dark matter. This corresponds to either imposing full WMAP relic density limits or just its upper bound for constraining the MSSM parameters. We consider several realisations of the MSSM, namely, three GUT-scale SUSY breaking scenarios with a handful of parameters corresponding to the CMSSM, anomaly mediation and the large volume string scenarios as well as the weak-scale 25-parameter phenomenological MSSM (pMSSM). The results give a data-based quantitative evidence for a multicomponent cold dark matter. The pMSSM posterior samples indicate that the choice of imposing full WMAP limits or just its upper bound affects mostly the gaugino-higgsino content of the neutralino and, against naive expectations, essentially not any other sector.

    In the CP-violating Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model, we study the production of a neutralino-chargino pair at the LHC. For their decays into three leptons, we analyze CP asymmetries which are sensitive to the CP phases of the neutralino and chargino sector. We present analytical formulas for the entire production and decay process, and identify the CP-violating contributions in the spin correlation terms. This allows us to define the optimal CP asymmetries. We present a detailed numerical analysis of the cross sections, branching ratios, and the CP observables. For light neutralinos, charginos, and squarks, the asymmetries can reach several 10%. We estimate the discovery potential for the LHC to observe CP violation in the trilepton channel.

  12. The Search for VH → VWW standard model higgs production in the trilepton signature with 5.9fb-1 of data from p$\\bar{p}$ collisions at √s=1.96 GeV

    We present here the search for Standard Model V H → VWW → lll + ET (missing energy due to neutrinos) production, where V is a W or Z weak vector boson, which uses up to 5.9 fb-1 of integrated luminosity. This analysis has recently added to the CDF high-mass Higgs group three new signal topologies characterized by a tri-lepton signature, which are chosen to isolate the V H → VWW associated production signals in the three-lepton signature. As such, we define three new regions for a WH analysis, a ZH 1-jet analysis, and a ZH ≥ 2-jet analysis with which we expect to contribute an additional 5.8% (for mH = 165 GeV) acceptance to the current H → WW dilepton analysis. The ZH trilepton regions are defined by events passing a Z-boson selection: events having at least one lepton pairing (among three possible pairings) with opposite sign, same flavor, and a dilepton invariant mass within [76.0, 106.0] GeV–a ± 15 GeV window around the Z-boson mass. TheWH trilepton region is then defined as the set of trilepton events that are complement to those chosen by the Z-boson selection. These three new event topologies make a substantial contribution to the H → WW group result. As a measure of the sensitivity of this search, we compute the median expected limit on the at 95% confidence level (“C.L.”) on the production cross section (effectively the rate of production) for a StandardModel Higgs boson and report the result as a ratio to the theoretical production cross section. An observed limit ratio of one or less at a given mass would rule out the production of a Standard Model Higgs boson at that mass with 95% confidence. At mH = 165 GeV, the WH analysis expected limits reach 7.2 times the standard model cross section; the ZH 1-jet analysis is set at 29 times the expected standard model cross section; the ZH ≥ 2-jet analysis is set at 9.9 times the expected standard model cross section; and the combined trilepton analysis is set

    Full Text Available We perform a systematic search for globally defined MSSM-like and left–right symmetric models on D6-branes on the T6/(Z2×Z6×ΩR orientifold with discrete torsion. Our search is exhaustive for models that are independent of the value of the one free complex structure modulus. Preliminary investigations suggest that there exists one prototype of visible sector for MSSM-like and another for left–right symmetric models with differences arising from various hidden sector completions to global models. For each prototype, we provide the full matter spectrum, as well as the Yukawa and other three-point couplings needed to render vector-like matter states massive. This provides us with tentative explanations for the mass hierarchies within the quark and lepton sectors. We also observe that the MSSM-like models correspond to explicit realisations of the supersymmetric DFSZ axion model, and that the left–right symmetric models allow for global completions with either completely decoupled hidden sectors or with some messenger states charged under both visible and hidden gauge groups.

    We perform a systematic search for globally defined MSSM-like and left-right symmetric models on D6-branes on the T6/Z(2)xZ(6)xOR orientifold with discrete torsion. Our search is exhaustive for models that are independent of the value of the one free complex structure modulus. Preliminary investigations suggest that there exists one prototype of visible sector for MSSM-like and another for left-right symmetric models with differences arising from various hidden sector completions to global models. For each prototype, we provide the full matter spectrum, as well as the Yukawa and other three-point couplings needed to render vector-like matter states massive. This provides us with tentative explanations for the mass hierarchies within the quark and lepton sectors. We also observe that the MSSM-like models correspond to explicit realisations of the supersymmetric DFSZ axion model, and that the left-right symmetric models allow for global completions with either completely decoupled hidden sectors or with some me...

    A new scenario of hybrid-like inflation is considered for sneutrino and MSSM fields. Contrary to the usual hybrid inflation model, the direct coupling between a trigger field and the sneutrino/MSSM inflaton field is not necessary for the scenario. The dissipation and the radiation from the sneutrino/MSSM inflaton can be written explicitly by using the Yukawa couplings. Remote inflation does not require the shift symmetry or cancellation in solving the {eta} problem.

    We analyze the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model that we have after the discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC, the hMSSM (habemus MSSM?), i.e. a model in which the lighter h boson has a mass of approximately 125 GeV which, together with the non-observation of superparticles at the LHC, indicates that the SUSY-breaking scale M{sub S} is rather high, M{sub S} >or similar 1 TeV. We first demonstrate that the value M{sub h} {approx} 125 GeV fixes the dominant radiative corrections that enter the MSSM Higgs boson masses, leading to a Higgs sector that can be described, to a good approximation, by only two free parameters. In a second step, we consider the direct supersymmetric radiative corrections and show that, to a good approximation, the phenomenology of the lighter Higgs state can be described by its mass and three couplings: those to massive gauge bosons and to top and bottom quarks. We perform a fit of these couplings using the latest LHC data on the production and decay rates of the light h boson and combine it with the limits from the negative search of the heavier H,A and H{sup {+-}} states, taking into account the current uncertainties.

    We analyze the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model that we have after the discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC, the hMSSM (habemus MSSM?), i.e. a model in which the lighter $h$ boson has a mass of approximately 125 GeV which, together with the non-observation of superparticles at the LHC, indicates that the SUSY-breaking scale $M_S$ is rather high, $M_S > 1$ TeV. We first demonstrate that the value $M_h \\approx 125$ GeV fixes the dominant radiative corrections that enter the MSSM Higgs boson masses, leading to a Higgs sector that can be described, to a good approximation, by only two free parameters.

    We explore the prospects for observing CP violation in the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM) with six CP-violating parameters, three gaugino mass phases and three phases in trilinear soft supersymmetry-breaking parameters, using the CPsuperH code combined with a geometric approach to maximise CP-violating observables subject to the experimental upper bounds on electric dipole moments. We also implement CP-conserving constraints from Higgs physics, flavour physics and the upper limits on the cosmological dark matter density and spin-independent scattering. We study possible values of observables within the constrained MSSM (CMSSM), the non-universal Higgs model (NUHM), the CPX scenario and a variant of the phenomenological MSSM (pMSSM). We find values of the CP-violating asymmetry A{sub CP} in b → sγ decay that may be as large as 3 %, so future measurements of A{sub CP} may provide independent information about CP violation in the MSSM. We find that CP-violating MSSM contributions to the B{sub s} meson mass mixing term ΔM{sub B{sub s}} are in general below the present upper limit, which is dominated by theoretical uncertainties. If these could be reduced, ΔM{sub B{sub s}} could also provide an interesting and complementary constraint on the six CP-violating MSSM phases, enabling them all to be determined experimentally, in principle. We also find that CP violation in the h{sub 2,3}τ{sup +}τ{sup -} and h{sub 2,3} anti tt couplings can be quite large, and so may offer interesting prospects for future pp, e{sup +}e{sup -}, μ{sup +}μ{sup -} and γγ colliders.

    Stringent limits are set on the long-lived lepton-like sector of the phenomenological minimal supersymmetric standard model (pMSSM) and the anomaly-mediated supersymmetry breaking (AMSB) model. The limits are derived from the results presented in a recent search for long-lived charged particles in proton-proton collisions, based on data collected by the CMS detector at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV at the Large Hadron Collider. In the pMSSM parameter sub-space considered, 95.9% of the points predicting charginos with a lifetime of at least 10 ns are excluded. These constraints on the pMSSM are the first obtained at the LHC. Charginos with a lifetime greater than 100 ns and masses up to about 800 GeV in the AMSB model are also excluded. The method described can also be used to set constraints on other models.

  2. E6SSM vs MSSM gluino phenomenology

    Svantesson, Patrik; Hall, Jonathan P; King, Stephen F

    The E6SSM is a promising model based on the group E6, assumed to be broken at the GUT scale, leading to the group SU(3)\\times SU(2)\\times U(1)\\times U(1)' at the TeV scale. It gives a solution to the MSSM {\\mu}-problem without introducing massless axions, gauge anomalies or cosmological domain walls. The model contains three families of complete 27s of E6, giving a richer phenomenology than the MSSM. The E6SSM generically predicts gluino cascade decay chains which are about 2 steps longer than the MSSM's due to the presence of several light neutralino states. This implies less missing (and more visible) transverse momentum in collider experiments and kinematical distributions such as M_eff are different. Scans of parameter space and MC analysis suggest that current SUSY search strategies and exclusion limits have to be reconsidered.

  3. The Higgs particles in the MSSM

    In these lectures, I review the Higgs sector of the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM). In a first part, I discuss the link between ultraviolet divergences and symmetries and briefly introduce supersymmetry and the MSSM. In section 2, the two-doublet MSSM Higgs sector will be presented and the Higgs masses and interactions will be derived. In a third part I will discuss the decay modes of the various Higgs bosons, their production at LEP2 and the main experimental constraints on the Higgs spectrum. In section 4, I discuss the prospects for discovering the Higgs particles at the upgraded Tevatron, the LHC and at a high-energy e{sup +}e{sup -} linear collider, and summarize the possibility of studying their properties.

    This thesis is dedicated to the study of the first data taken by the D0 detector during the Run II of the Tevatron. Supersymmetric particles have been search for in proton-antiproton collisions, with a center of mass energy of 1.96 TeV. In the framework of supersymmetry with R-parity violation, I have studied the pair production of Gauginos, leading to a pair of LSP (0,{chi}{sub 1}), each one decaying into ee{nu}{sub {mu}} or e{mu}{nu}{sub e} with a {lambda}(121) coupling. The final state contains at least two electrons: I have thus paid special attention in this work to the methods concerning identification and mis-identification of electromagnetic particles, as well as reconstruction, triggering, and correction (of the reconstructed energy). In a selection of tri-leptons, with at least two electrons, and some transverse missing energy, we observed 0 event in the 350 pb{sup -1} of analyzed data, for 0.4 + 0.35 - 0.05 (sta) {+-} 0.16 (sys) expected from the Standard Model contributions. In the signal considered in this analysis, the selection efficiency is around 12 per cent. Results have been studied in two models: mSUGRA and MSSM. In mSUGRA model, limits on m(1/2) and lightest gauginos's masses have been obtained, with tan({beta}) = 5, A{sub 0} = 0, m{sub 0} = 100 and 1000 GeV.c{sup -2} and both signs of {mu}. In MSSM, with the hypothesis of massive sfermions (1000 GeV.c{sup -2}), we can exclude, at 95% Confidence Level, the region m({chi}{sub 1}{sup {+-}}) < 200 GeV.c{sup -2} for all masses of {chi}{sub 1}{sup 0} LSP.

    The analysis of the data collected by the major LHC experiments during the LHC Run I has put strong constraints on supersymmetric models. We study the parameter space of the constrained Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (cMSSM) in a global fit, taking into account the non- observation of supersymmetry at the LHC, Higgs mass and rate measurements, as well as several cosmological and low energy observables. Before the start of the LHC, global fits of the cMSSM showed a favourable goodness-of-fit and indicated a strong preference for the existence of light SUSY particles. This region now has largely been excluded by the LHC. We present the final results of our study of the status of the cMSSM after the LHC Run1, where for the first time we use pseudo experiments to determine the p-value of the model. We find that the cMSSM is softly getting near its exclusion at the 90% CL.

    We investigate the constrained Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (cMSSM) in the light of constraining experimental and observational data from precision measurements, astrophysics, direct supersymmetry searches at the LHC and measurements of the properties of the Higgs boson, by means of a global fit using the program Fittino. As in previous studies, we find rather poor agreement of the best fit point with the global data. We also investigate the stability of the electro-weak vacuum in the preferred region of parameter space around the best fit point. We find that the vacuum is metastable, with a lifetime significantly longer than the age of the Universe. For the first time in a global fit of supersymmetry, we employ a consistent methodology to evaluate the goodness-of-fit of the cMSSM in a frequentist approach by deriving p values from large sets of toy experiments. We analyse analytically and quantitatively the impact of the choice of the observable set on the p value, and in particular its dilution when confronting the model with a large number of barely constraining measurements. Finally, for the preferred sets of observables, we obtain p values for the cMSSM below 10 %, i.e. we exclude the cMSSM as a model at the 90 % confidence level. (orig.)

    The results of supersymmetric searches at the LHC are usually presented in the context of simplified models, with a single specific production channel and decay mode for the supersymmetric particles. In full SUSY models, several production and decay channels are expected, and the limits on supersymmetric particle masses might be weaker. In the following we will presents the combination of the results from each of the ATLAS and CMS collaborations to place constraints on the 19-parameter phenomenological MSSM (pMSSM).

    Compactification of the heterotic string on toroidal orbifolds is a promising set-up for the construction of realistic unified models of particle physics. The target space dynamics of such models, however, drives them slightly away from the orbifold point in moduli space. This resolves curvature singularities, but makes the string computations very difficult. On these smooth manifolds we have to rely on an effective supergravity approximation in the large volume limit. By comparing an orbifold example with its blow-up version, we try to transfer the computational power of the orbifold to the smooth manifold. Using local properties, we establish a perfect map of the the chiral spectra as well as the (local) anomalies of these models. A key element in this discussion is the Green-Schwarz anomaly polynomial. It allows us to identify those redefinitions of chiral fields and localized axions in the blow-up process which are relevant for the interactions (such as Yukawa-couplings) in the model on the smooth space.

    We explored a Higgs inflationary scenario in the SUGRA embedding of the MSSM in Einstein frame where the inflaton is contained in the SU (2) Higgs doublet. We include all higher order non-renormalizable terms to the MSSM superpotential and an appropriate Kähler potential which can provide slow-roll inflaton potential in the D-flat direction. In this model, a plateau-like inflation potential can be obtained if the imaginary part of the neutral Higgs acts as the inflaton. The inflationary predictions of this model are consistent with the latest CMB observations. The model represents a successful Higgs inflation scenario in the context of Supergravity and it is compatible with Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model.

  12. Stop-Catalyzed Baryogenesis Beyond the MSSM

    Non-minimal supersymmetric models that predict a tree-level Higgs mass above the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) bound are well motivated by naturalness considerations. Indirect constraints on the stop sector parameters of such models are significantly relaxed compared to the MSSM; in particular, both stops can have weak-scale masses. We revisit the stop-catalyzed electroweak baryogenesis (EWB) scenario in this context. We find that the LHC measurements of the Higgs boson production and decay rates already rule out the possibility of stop-catalyzed EWB. We also introduce a gauge-invariant analysis framework that may generalize to other scenarios in which interactions outside the gauge sector drive the electroweak phase transition.

    We have recently examined a large number of points in the parameter space of the phenomenological MSSM, the 19-dimensional parameter space of the CP-conserving MSSM with Minimal Flavor Violation. We determined whether each of these points satisfied existing experimental and theoretical constraints. This analysis provides insight into general features of the MSSM without reference to a particular SUSY breaking scenario or any other assumptions at the GUT scale. This study opens up new possibilities for SUSY phenomenology both in colliders and in astrophysical experiments. Here we shall discuss the implications of this analysis relevant to the study of dark matter.

  14. E6SSM vs MSSM gluino phenomenology

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2012-06-01

    Full Text Available The E6SSM is a promising model based on the group E6, assumed to be broken at the GUT scale, leading to the group SU(3×SU(2×U(1×U(1′ at the TeV scale. It gives a solution to the MSSM μ-problem without introducing massless axions, gauge anomalies or cosmological domain walls. The model contains three families of complete 27s of E6, giving a richer phenomenology than the MSSM. The E6SSM generically predicts gluino cascade decay chains which are about 2 steps longer than the MSSM’s due to the presence of several light neutralino states. This implies less missing (and more visible transverse momentum in collider experiments and kinematical distributions such as Meff are different. Scans of parameter space and MC analysis suggest that current SUSY search strategies and exclusion limits have to be reconsidered.

  15. Revisiting fine-tuning in the MSSM

    We evaluate the amount of fine-tuning in constrained versions of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM), with different boundary conditions at the GUT scale. Specifically we study the fully constrained version as well as the cases of non-universal Higgs and gaugino masses. We allow for the presence of additional non-holomorphic soft-terms which we show further relax the fine-tuning. Of particular importance is the possibility of a Higgsino mass term and we discuss possible origins for such a term in UV complete models. We point out that loop corrections typically lead to a reduction in the fine-tuning by a factor of about two compared to the estimate at tree-level, which has been overlooked in many recent works. Taking these loop corrections into account, we discuss the impact of current limits from SUSY searches and dark matter on the fine-tuning. Contrary to common lore, we find that the MSSM fine-tuning can be as small as 10 while remaining consistent with all experimental constraints. If, in addition, the dark matter abundance is fully explained by the neutralino LSP, the fine-tuning can still be as low as ˜ 20 in the presence of additional non-holomorphic soft-terms. We also discuss future prospects of these models and find that the MSSM will remain natural even in the case of a non-discovery in the foreseeable future.

    2013-05-01

    Full Text Available A review of the searches for exotic Higgs boson beyond standard model and minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM, from experiments at the Tevatron and LHC, is presented. Several different models have been considered, including extensions to standard model with fourth generation of fermions, fermiophobic Higgs, next-to-MSSM models, seesaw type-II, and rare decay of Higgs boson to hidden sector. For next-to- MSSM models several final states have been considered, including light pseudo-scalar Higgs decay into taus, muons, and photons, as well as charged Higgs boson. The searches has been performed with re-interpretation of results from standard model Higgs search as well as on new signatures.

    2015-01-01

    We investigate the sensitivity of the next generation of flavor-based low-energy experiments to probe the supersymmetric parameter space in the context of the phenomenological MSSM (pMSSM), and examine the complementarity with direct searches for Supersymmetry at the 13 TeV LHC in a quantitative manner. To this end, we enlarge the previously studied pMSSM parameter space to include all physical non-zero CP-violating phases, namely those associated with the gaugino mass parameters, Higgsino mass parameter, and the tri-linear couplings of the top quark, bottom quark and tau lepton. We find that future electric dipole moment and flavor measurements can have a strong impact on the viability of these models even if the sparticle spectrum is out of reach of the 13 TeV LHC. In particular, the lack of positive signals in future low-energy probes would exclude values of the phases between ${\\cal O}(10^{-2})$ and ${\\cal O}(10^{-1})$. We also find regions of parameter space where large phases remain allowed due to cance...

  18. Phenomenological MSSM interpretation of CMS results at $\\sqrt{s}=$ 7 and 8 TeV

    CERN Document Server

    CMS Collaboration

    2015-01-01

    Using a global Bayesian analysis, it is shown how the results from searches for supersymmetry performed by CMS constrain the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). The study is performed within the framework of the phenomenological MSSM (pMSSM), a 19-parameter realization of the R-parity conserving weak-scale MSSM, that captures most of the latter's phenomenological features and which, therefore, permits robust conclusions to be drawn about the MSSM. It is found that all pMSSM points considered with a gluino mass below 500 GeV are excluded. In the mass range between 500 GeV and 1400 GeV, there are many scenarios that cannot as yet be excluded, contrary to current gluino mass limits using simplified models. Similar conclusions are made for squarks, charginos, and neutralinos. The mass of the lighter top squark $\\tilde{t}_1$ is found to be unconstrained and, therefore, a relatively light $\\tilde{t}_1$ cannot be excluded in the pMSSM context. Constraints on the pMSSM parameter space provided by the Higgs...

    2016-01-01

    There exists a vast literature examining the electroweak (EW) fine-tuning problem in supersymmetric scenarios, but little concerned with the dark matter (DM) one, which should be combined with the former. In this paper, we study this problem in an, as much as possible, exhaustive and rigorous way. We have considered the MSSM framework, assuming that the LSP is the lightest neutralino, $\\chi_1^0$, and exploring the various possibilities for the mass and composition of $\\chi_1^0$, as well as different mechanisms for annihilation of the DM particles in the early Universe (well-tempered neutralinos, funnels and co-annihilation scenarios). We also present a discussion about the statistical meaning of the fine-tuning and how it should be computed for the DM abundance, and combined with the EW fine-tuning. The results are very robust and model-independent and favour some scenarios (like the h-funnel when $M_{\\chi_1^0}$ is not too close to $m_h/2$) with respect to others (such as the pure wino case). These features s...

    The four LEP collaborations, ALEPH, DELPHI, L3 and OPAL, have searched for the neutral Higgs bosons which are predicted by the Minimal Supersymmetric standard model (MSSM). The data of the four collaborations are statistically combined and examined for their consistency with the background hypothesis and with a possible Higgs boson signal. The combined LEP data show no significant excess of events which would indicate the production of Higgs bosons. The search results are used to set upper bounds on the cross-sections of various Higgs-like event topologies. The results are interpreted within the MSSM in a number of “benchmark” models, including CP-conserving and CP-violating scenarios. These interpretations lead in all cases to large exclusions in the MSSM parameter space. Absolute limits are set on the parameter cosβ and, in some scenarios, on the masses of neutral Higgs bosons.

  2. Electroweak Phase Transition in the MSSM 4-Dimensional Lattice Simulations

    2000-01-01

    Recent lattice results have shown that there is no Standard Model (SM) electroweak phase transition (EWPT) for Higgs boson masses above \\approx 72 GeV, which is below the present experimental limit. According to perturbation theory and 3-dimensional (3d) lattice simulations there could be an EWPT in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) that is strong enough for baryogenesis up to m_h \\approx 105 GeV. In this letter we present the results of our large scale 4-dimensional (4d) lattice simulations for the MSSM EWPT. We carried out infinite volume and continuum limit extrapolations, which show a somewhat weaker transition than suggested by 3d simulations. The upper bound of the lightest Higgs boson mass for a MSSM baryogenesis scenario is m_h = 97 +/- 4 GeV. We determined the properties of the bubble wall that are important for a successful baryogenesis.

  3. pMSSM scans in ATLAS

    2016-01-01

    Multidimensional scans of the pMSSM have been used in ATLAS to assess the experiment sensitivity to classess of models usually not well represented by simplified models. Such scans require a well defined approach in generating signal events and deciding which ones should be passed through the CPU-intensive detector simulation and for which ones the sensitivity can be instead parametrised. They also impose challenges in deciding how the experiment sensitivity should be summarised. The talk will discuss in detail hos such large-scale scans have been approached by ATLAS, touching upon recent results obtained.

    We study dark matter at the MSSM pseudoscalar Higgs resonance (A funnel), which is one of the few remaining MSSM thermal dark matter candidates in the 100-1000 GeV range safe from direct detection constraints. To illustrate the various factors at play, this study is performed in two contrasting setups: a bottom-up phenomenological MSSM (pMSSM) approach that allows significant freedom and the top-down, highly constrained Yukawa unified S O (10 ) GUT model. In the pMSSM, for μ >0 , the entire parameter space lies above the coherent neutrino background and mostly within reach of XENON1T and LZ, while blind spots exist at mA>800 GeV for μ determined to within a small range.

  5. Light stops, blind spots, and isospin violation in the MSSM

    Crivellin, Andreas; Procura, Massimiliano; Tunstall, Lewis C

    2015-01-01

    In the framework of the MSSM, we examine several simplified models where only a few superpartners are light. This allows us to study WIMP--nucleus scattering in terms of a handful of MSSM parameters and thereby scrutinize their impact on dark matter direct-detection experiments. Focusing on spin-independent WIMP--nucleon scattering, we derive simplified, analytic expressions for the Wilson coefficients associated with Higgs and squark exchange. We utilize these results to study the complementarity of constraints due to direct-detection, flavor, and collider experiments. We also identify parameter configurations that produce (almost) vanishing cross sections. In the proximity of these so-called blind spots, we find that the amount of isospin violation may be much larger than typically expected in the MSSM. This feature is a generic property of parameter regions where cross sections are suppressed, and highlights the importance of a careful analysis of the nucleon matrix elements and the associated hadronic unc...

  6. MSSM interpretations of the LHC discovery. Light or heavy Higgs?

    A Higgs-like particle with a mass of about 126 GeV has been discovered at the LHC. Within the experimental uncertainties, the measured properties of this new state are compatible with those of the Higgs boson in the Standard Model (SM). While not statistically significant at present, the results show some interesting patterns of deviations from the SM predictions, in particular a higher rate in the {gamma}{gamma} decay mode observed by ATLAS and CMS, and a somewhat smaller rate in the {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -} mode. The LHC discovery is also compatible with the predictions of the Higgs sector of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), interpreting the new state as either the light or the heavy CP-even MSSM Higgs boson. Within the framework of the MSSM with seven free parameters (pMSSM-7), we fit the various rates of cross section times branching ratio as measured by the LHC and Tevatron experiments under the hypotheses of either the light or the heavy CP-even Higgs boson being the new state around 126 GeV, with and without the inclusion of further lowenergy observables. We find an overall good quality of the fits, with the best fit points exhibiting an enhancement of the {gamma}{gamma} rate, as well as a small suppression of the b anti b and {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -} channels with respect to their SM expectations, depending on the details of the fit. For the fits including the whole data set the light CP-even Higgs interpretation in the MSSM results in a higher relative fit probability than the SM fit. On the other hand, we find that the present data also permit the more exotic interpretation in terms of the heavy CP-even MSSM Higgs, which could give rise to experimental signatures of additional Higgs states in the near future.

  7. Using Machine Learning to Search for MSSM Higgs Bosons

    2016-01-01

    This paper examines the performance of machine learning in the identification of Minimally Su- persymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) Higgs Bosons, and compares this performance to that of traditional cut strategies. Two boosted decision tree algorithms were tested, scikit-learn and XGBoost. These tests indicated that machine learning can perform significantly better than traditional cuts. However, since machine learning in this form cannot be directly implemented in a real MSSM Higgs analysis, this performance information was instead used to better understand the relationships between training variables. Further studies might use this information to construct an improved cut strategy.

  8. Constraining the MSSM with Dark Matter indirect detection data

    Recently, a claim of possible evidence for Dark Matter in data from the Fermi LAT experiment was made by Goodenough and Hooper [8]. We test the Dark Matter properties consistent with their claim in terms of the MSSM by a 24-dimensional parameter scan using nested sampling, excluding all but a very small region of the MSSM. Although this claim is very preliminary, and not made by the Fermi LAT experiment, our scan shows a possible approach for the analysis of future firm evidence from an indirect detection experiment, and its potential for heavily constraining models.

    A search for physics beyond the Standard Model is presented using dilepton and trilepton events with at least one b jet and large missing transverse energy. Some models looking for beyond the Standard Model physics predict Vector-Like Quarks (VLQ), which can potentially produce these types of events. VLQ are theorized to be non-supersymmetric massive quarks that can couple to top and bottom quarks. The analysis is presented with emphasis on the VLQ search, even though multiple signals are studied in this analysis.

    We use the three lepton and missing energy trilepton signature to search for chargino-neutralino production with 2.0 fb;{-1} of integrated luminosity collected by the CDF II experiment at the Tevatron pp[over ] collider. We expect an excess of approximately 11 supersymmetric events for a choice of parameters of the mSUGRA model, but our observation of 7 events is consistent with the standard model expectation of 6.4 events. We constrain the mSUGRA model of supersymmetry and rule out chargino masses up to 145 GeV/c;{2} for a specific choice of parameters.

    Recently we examined a large number of points in a 19-dimensional parameter subspace of the CP-conserving MSSM with Minimal Flavor Violation. We determined whether each of these points satisfied existing theoretical, experimental, and observational constraints. Here we discuss the properties of the parameter space points allowed by existing data that are relevant for dark matter searches.

  15. Linking Starobinsky-Type Inflation to MSSM

    CERN Document Server

    Pallis, C

    2013-01-01

    A novel realization of the Starobinsky inflationary model within a moderate extension of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) is presented. The proposed superpotential is uniquely determined by applying a continuous R and a Z_2 discrete symmetry, whereas the Kahler potential respects a no-scale-type SU(53,1)/SU(53)x U(1)_R x Z_2 symmetry too. The inflaton is identified with a Higgs-like modulus whose the vacuum expectation value controls the gravitational strength. Thanks to a strong enough coupling (with a parameter cT involved) between the inflaton and the Ricci scalar curvature, inflation can be attained even for subplanckian values of the inflaton with cT>76 and the corresponding effective theory being valid up to the Planck scale. The inflationary observables turn out to be in agreement with the current data and the inflaton mass is predicted to be 3x10^13 GeV. At the cost of a relatively small superpotential coupling constant, the model offers also a resolution to the mu problem of the MSSM ...

  16. MSSM Higgs : Window into Susy GUTs

    CERN Document Server

    Aulakh, Charanjit S

    2015-01-01

    The Minimal Supersymmetric SO(10) GUT has developed into a fully realistic theory in which not only are the gauge couplings unified but the known fermion spectrum and mixing matrices could fit accurately using the latitude introduced by inclusion of quantum corrections to the GUT-effective MSSM-SM matching conditions. The fits yield predictions about the nature of the sparticle spectrum on the basis of the required threshold corrections. This indicated a necessarily large value for $A_0$ in 2008 : well before Higgs discovery at 126 GeV made it a commonplace assumption. GUT scale threshold corrections to the normalization of the emergent effective MSSM Higgs ameliorate the long standing Susy GUT puzzle of fast dimension five operator mediated proton decay. Numerical investigation indicates that B-violation rates below or near the current experimental upper limits are feasible in fully realistic models. Our results imply that UV completion models with large numbers of fields, like Kaluza-Klein models or String ...

  17. Constraints on the pMSSM from searches for squarks and gluinos by ATLAS

    Strübig, Antonia; Rammensee, Michael

    2012-01-01

    We study the impact of the jets and missing transverse momentum SUSY analyses of the ATLAS experiment on the phenomenological MSSM (pMSSM). We investigate sets of SUSY models with a flat and logarithmic prior in the SUSY mass scale and a mass range up to 1 and 3 TeV, respectively. These models were found previously in the study 'Supersymmetry without Prejudice'. Removing models with long-lived SUSY particles, we show that 99% of 20000 randomly generated pMSSM model points with a flat prior and 87% for a logarithmic prior are excluded by the ATLAS results. For models with squarks and gluinos below 600 GeV all models of the pMSSM grid are excluded. We identify SUSY spectra where the current ATLAS search strategy is less sensitive and propose extensions to the inclusive jets search channel.

    We determine the anomaly free discrete R symmetries, consistent with the MSSM, that commute with SU(5) and suppress the $\\mu$ parameter and nucleon decay. We show that the order M of such $Z_M^R$ symmetries has to divide 24 and identify 5 viable symmetries. The simplest possibility is a $Z_4^R$ symmetry which commutes with SO(10). We present a string-derived model with this $Z_4^R$ symmetry and the exact MSSM spectrum below the GUT scale; in this model $Z_4^R$ originates from the Lorentz symmetry of compactified dimensions. We extend the discussion to include the singlet extensions of the MSSM and find $Z_4^R$ and $Z_8^R$ are the only possible symmetries capable of solving the $\\mu$ problem in the NMSSM. We also show that a singlet extension of the MSSM based on a $Z_{24}^R$ symmetry can provide a simultaneous solution to the $\\mu$ and strong CP problem with the axion coupling in the favoured window.

    We investigate the constrained Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (cMSSM) in the light of constraining experimental and observational data from precision measurements, astrophysics, direct supersymmetry searches at the LHC and measurements of the properties of the Higgs boson, by means of a global fit using the program Fittino. As in previous studies, we find rather poor agreement of the best fit point with the global data. We also investigate the stability of the electro-weak vacuum in the preferred region of parameter space around the best fit point. We find that the vacuum is metastable, with a lifetime significantly longer than the age of the Universe. For the first time in a global fit of supersymmetry, we employ a consistent methodology to evaluate the goodness-of-fit of the cMSSM in a frequentist approach by deriving p-values from large sets of toy experiments. We analyse analytically and quantitatively the impact of the choice of the observable set on the p-value, and in particular its dilution whe...

    2009-01-01

    We perform a forecast of the MSSM with universal soft terms (CMSSM) for the LHC, based on an improved Bayesian analysis. We do not incorporate ad hoc measures of the fine-tuning to penalize unnatural possibilities: such penalization arises from the Bayesian analysis itself when the experimental value of $M_Z$ is considered. This allows to scan the whole parameter space, allowing arbitrarily large soft terms. Still the low-energy region is statistically favoured (even before including dark matter or g-2 constraints). Contrary to other studies, the results are almost unaffected by changing the upper limits taken for the soft terms. The results are also remarkable stable when using flat or logarithmic priors, a fact that arises from the larger statistical weight of the low-energy region in both cases. Then we incorporate all the important experimental constrains to the analysis, obtaining a map of the probability density of the MSSM parameter space, i.e. the forecast of the MSSM. Since not all the experimental i...

    We consider the measurement of the trilinear couplings of the neutral Higgs bosons~($H^0, h^0$) in the minimal supersymmetric standard model~(MSSM) at a high energy $e^+$ $e^-$ linear collider in the light of the discovery of a Higgs boson at the CERN Large Hadron Collider~(LHC). We identify the state observed at the LHC with the lightest CP-even Higgs boson of the MSSM. We implement this constraint, as well as all the other relevant experimental constraints, on the parameter space of the MSSM in order to study the feasibility of measuring the trilinear couplings of the neutral Higgs bosons. For the measurement of trilinear couplings, we consider the multiple Higgs production processes. We delineate the regions of MSSM parameter space where the trilinear couplings of the neutral Higgs bosons could be measured at a high energy electron-positron collider.

    The ATLAS and CMS collaborations conducted a large number of searches for supersymmetry during Run-1 of the LHC. No statistically significant excess was found and so limits have been placed on the masses of spartcles. These limits are usually interpreted in terms of low-scale simplified models, however, these models can fail to capture the complexity of full MSSM models and therefore provide over-optimistic exclusion. Both the ATLAS and CMS collaborations have embarked upon large-scale studies to combine their most sensitive searches for supersymmetry and analysed their impact on the 19-parameter phenomenological MSSM; allowing them to take into account all relevant dark matter, heavy flavour and precision electroweak measurements, as well as the constraints from the LHC searches. The results allow one to see where there is room for new physics still to be hiding, in some cases at surprisingly low masses.

    The standard model (SM) of particles and fields is a theory that has proven very accurate in the currently accessible collider energies. Nonetheless, the SM is theoretically incomplete in the sense that it leaves many questions and problems unanswered, for example, the origin of electroweak symmetry breaking (EWSB). The Higgs boson is introduced to the SM to provide a mechanism for electroweak symmetry breaking and masses to quarks and leptons. However, the introduction of the Higgs mechanism has the undesirable effect of introducing the hierarchy problem which is characterized by quadratically divergent contributions to the Higgs mass squared. Supersymmetry (SUSY) has been postulated as a way to solve the problem of the fine tuning of the Higgs self-interactions, and additionally to provide a possible mechanism for EWSB. The golden search channel for mSUGRA is the $\\chi{^\\pm}_{1} \\chi^{0}_{2} \\rightarrow 3\\ell$ (three leptons) channel. It offers a reasonable signal $\\sigma \\ x BR$ with very small contributions from Standard Model backgrounds. This thesis, presents a search for chargino-neutralino production within the mSUGRA framework.

    We propose a simplified light higgsino-singlino scenario in the NMSSM, in which the masses of the chargino and the lightest neutralino determine the masses and couplings of all 3 lightest neutralinos. This scenario is complementary to the simplified wino-like chargino/neutralino scenario used conventionally for the interpretation of results from trilepton searches, and motivated by lower bounds on the gluino mass in the case of GUT relations between the wino and gluino masses. We present all masses and mixing angles necessary for the determination of production cross sections of the chargino and the 3 neutralinos in the form of tables in the plane, assuming Higgs mass motivated values for tan β = 2 and λ = 0 .6. We show that this scenario leads to considerable signal rates, and present constraints in this plane from recent searches for trileptons at the LHC.

    The extensions of the minimal supersymmetric model (MSSM), driving mainly from the need to solve the \\mu problem, involve novel matter species and gauge groups. These extended MSSM models can be searched for at the LHC via the effects of the gauge and Higgs bosons or their fermionic partners. Traditionally, the focus has been on the study of the extra forces induced by the new gauge and Higgs bosons present in such models. An alternative way of studying such effects is through the superpartners of matter species and the gauge forces. We thus consider a $U(1)^\\prime$ gauge extension of the MSSM, and perform an extensive study of the signatures of the model through the production and decays of the scalar quarks and gluino, which are expected to be produced copiously at the LHC. After a detailed study of the distinctive features of such models with regard to the signatures at the LHC, we carry out a detailed Monte Carlo analysis of the signals from the process pp-> n leptons + m jets + EMT, and compare the resul...

    We explore the capability of the IceCube/Deepcore array to discover signal neutrinos resulting from the annihilations of Supersymmetric WIMPS that may be captured in the solar core. In this analysis, we use a previously generated set of {approx} 70k model points in the 19-dimensional parameter space of the pMSSM which satisfy existing experimental and theoretical constraints. Our calculations employ a realistic estimate of the IceCube/DeepCore effective area that has been modeled by the IceCube collaboration. We find that a large fraction of the pMSSM models are shown to have significant signal rates in the anticipated IceCube/DeepCore 1825 day dataset, including some prospects for an early discovery. Many models where the LSP only constitutes a small fraction of the total dark matter relic density are found to have observable rates. We investigate in detail the dependence of the signal neutrino fluxes on the LSP mass, weak eigenstate composition, annihilation products and thermal relic density, as well as on the spin-independent and spin-dependent scattering cross sections. Lastly, We compare the model coverage of IceCube/DeepCore to that obtainable in near-future direct detection experiments and to pMSSM searches at the 7 TeV LHC.

    We analyse the neutral scalar sector of the MSSM without R-parity. Our analysis is performed for a one-generation model in terms of ``basis-independent'' parameters, and includes one-loop corrections due to large yukawa couplings. We concentrate on the consequences of large $R_p$ violating masses in the soft sector, which mix the Higgses with the sleptons, because these are only constrained by their one-loop contributions to neutrino masses. We focus on the effect of $R_p$-violation on the Higgs mass and branching ratios. We find that the experimental lower bound on the lightest CP-even Higgs in this model can be lower than in the MSSM.

    We embed the S-MSSM -- a singlet extension of the minimal supersymmetric standard model with an explicit mu-term and supersymmetric mass term -- in a gauge-mediated supersymmetry breaking scheme. We find that by absolving the singlet of its responsibility for solving the mu-problem, we are instead able to solve the little hierarchy problem naturally. Specifically, we find that even with a minimal embedding of the S-MSSM into a gauge-mediated scheme, we can easily raise the lightest Higgs mass above 114 GeV, while keeping top squarks below the TeV scale, maintaining perturbative unification of the gauge couplings, and without tuning the other parameters of the model.

    The extensions of the minimal supersymmetric model (MSSM), driving mainly from the need to solve the {mu} problem, involve novel matter species and gauge groups. These extended MSSM models can be searched for at the LHC via the effects of the gauge and Higgs bosons or their fermionic partners. Traditionally, the focus has been on the study of the extra forces induced by the new gauge and Higgs bosons present in such models. An alternative way of studying such effects is through the superpartners of matter species and the gauge forces. We thus consider a U(1)' gauge extension of the MSSM, and perform an extensive study of the signatures of the model through the production and decays of the scalar quarks and gluino, which are expected to be produced copiously at the LHC. After a detailed study of the distinctive features of such models with regard to the signatures at the LHC, we carry out a detailed Monte Carlo analysis of the signals from the process pp{yields}n leptons+m jets+E{sub T}, and compare the resulting distributions with those predicted by the MSSM. Our results show that the searches for the extra gauge interactions in the supersymmetric framework can proceed not only through the forces mediated by the gauge and Higgs bosons but also through the superpartner forces mediated by the gauge and Higgs fermions. Analysis of the events induced by the squark/gluino decays presented here is complementary to the direct Z' searches at the LHC. (orig.)

    We present the first constraints on the parameter space of $SU(5)\\times U(1)$ supergravity (in both no-scale and dilaton scenarios) which arise from the recently announced limits on trilepton searches at the Tevatron. The trilepton rate has been calculated for those points in parameter space which satisfy not only the minimal theoretical and experimental LEP constraints, but also the {\\em combined} effect of the following indirect experimental constraints: (i) the CLEO limits on the $b\\to s\\gamma$ rate, (ii) the long-standing limit on the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, (iii) the non-observation of anomalous muon fluxes in underground detectors (``neutrino telescopes"), and (iv) the electroweak LEP high-precision measurements in the form of the $\\epsilon_{1},\\epsilon_b$ parameters. For $m_t=150\\GeV$, the trilepton constraint rules out some regions of parameter space with chargino masses as high as $m_{\\chi^\\pm_1}\\approx105\\GeV$, although it is not possible to establish a new absolute lower bound on the...

    2012-01-01

    Motivated by the necessity of discrete Z_N symmetries in the MSSM to insure baryon stability, we study the origin of discrete gauge symmetries from open string sector U(1)'s in orientifolds based on rational conformal field theory. By means of an explicit construction, we find an integral basis for the couplings of axions and U(1) factors for all simple current MIPFs and orientifolds of all 168 Gepner models, a total of 32990 distinct cases. We discuss how the presence of discrete symmetries surviving as a subgroup of broken U(1)'s can be derived using this basis. We apply this procedure to models with MSSM chiral spectrum, concretely to all known U(3)xU(2)xU(1)xU(1) and U(3)xSp(2)xU(1)xU(1) configurations with chiral bi-fundamentals, but no chiral tensors, as well as some SU(5) GUT models. We find examples of models with Z_2 (R-parity) and Z_3 symmetries that forbid certain B and/or L violating MSSM couplings. Their presence is however relatively rare, at the level of a few percent of all cases.

    It is often argued that the minimal supersymmetric standard model has O (100 ) free parameters, and the generic parameter region is already excluded by the null observation of the flavor and C P -violating processes as well as the constraints from the LHC experiments. This situation naturally leads us to consider the case where all the dangerous soft supersymmetry breaking terms, such as the scalar masses and scalar couplings, are absent, while only the unified gaugino mass term and the μ term are nonvanishing at the grand unification scale. We revisit this simple situation taking into account the observed Higgs boson mass, 125 GeV. Since the gaugino mass and the μ term are fixed in order to explain the Higgs boson and the Z boson masses, there is no free parameter left in this scenario. We find that there are three independent parameter sets that exist including ones which have not been discussed in the literature. We also find that the abundance of the dark matter can be explained by relic gravitinos which are nonthermally produced as decay products of the supersymmetry particles while satisfying constraints from big bang nucleosynthesis. We discuss the effects of the gravity mediation which generically gives a contribution to the soft terms of the order of the gravitino mass. It turns out that a newly found parameter set is preferable to explain the Higgs boson mass as well as the gravitino dark matter while satisfying the constraints from the electric dipole moments of the electron and the nucleon.

    We study the contribution of charginos and neutralinos of the Minimal SUSY extension of the Standard model (MSSM) to the 1-loop vertices ZAA, ZZA, ZZZ, and examine the related cancellation of anomalies. It is found that when the SUSY parameter \\mu satisfies |\\mu| >> M,M', m_W, the couplings of charginos and neutralinos with the gauge bosons become purely vectorial, and then their contribution to the amplitudes for ZAA, ZZA and ZZZ vanish, which implies that this sector of the MSSM does not generate a Wess-Zumino term. We evaluate also the contribution of charginos and neutralinos to the \\rho parameter, and find that \\rho=0 in the large-\\mu limit.

    An analysis is given of the chromoelectric dipole moment of quarks and of the neutron in an MSSM extension where the matter sector contains an extra vectorlike generation of quarks and mirror quarks. The analysis includes contributions to the CEDM from the exchange of the $W$ and the $Z$ bosons, from the exchange of charginos and neutralinos and the gluino. Their contribution to the EDM of quarks is investigated. The interference between the MSSM sector and the new sector with vectorlike quarks is investigated. It is shown that inclusion of the vectorlike quarks can modify the quark EDMs in a significant way. Further, this interference also provides a probe of the vectorlike quark sector. These results are of interest as in the future measurements on the neutron EDM could see an improvement up to two orders of magnitude over the current experimental limits and provide a window to new physics beyond the standard model.

    We demonstrate that the $3\\sigma$ excess observed by ATLAS in the Z + MET channel can be explained within the context of the MSSM. Using the freedom inherent in the pMSSM, we perform a detailed analysis of the parameter space and find a scenario that describes the excess while simultaneously complying with all other search constraints from the Run I data at 7 and 8 TeV, including the Z + MET analysis by CMS. We generate a small sample of simplified models, using promising models from our existing pMSSM sample as seeds, and study their properties. The successful region is described by the production of 1st/2nd generation squark pairs, followed by their decay into a bino-like neutralino which in turn decays into a Higgsino-like LSP triplet by emitting a Z boson, i.e., $\\tilde q\\to\\tilde B\\to\\tilde h$ with $\\tilde q = \\tilde Q_L,\\tilde u_R,$ or $\\tilde d_R$. The sweet spot for the sparticle spectrum is found to have squark masses in the 500-750 GeV range, with bino masses near 350 GeV with a mass splitting of 15...

We also analyze the thermal relic abundance of lightest neutralino, which is the Lightest Supersymmetric Particle (LSP). We show that the combined LHC and relic abundance constraints rule out most of the MSSM parameter space except a very narrow region with very large $\\tan \\beta~(\\sim 50)$. Within this region, we emphasize that the spin-independent scattering cross section of the LSP with a proton is less than the latest Large Underground Xenon (LUX) limit by at least two order of magnitudes.

    A search for an invisibly decaying Higgs boson is presented. The event selection is based on neural networks dedicated to the rejection of the main background processes. In the data collected in 1998 and 1999 at centre-of-mass energies between 189 and 202 GeV, corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of 411 pb{sup -1}, no excess with respect to the standard model predictions is observed. This yields a 95% confidence level lower limit of 106.4 GeV/c{sup 2} for the mass of an invisibly decaying Higgs boson produced with a cross section equal to that of the standard model Higgs boson. The interpretation of new particle searches in the framework of the minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model (MSSM) is difficult due to the large number of free parameters. Usually, benchmark values are chosen for the relevant parameters. The Higgs sector has been explored with some hypotheses relaxed. It has been shown that the limits on masses and coupling obtained in a very constrained framework remain robust. However, some specific analyses had to be developed to handle some unusual configurations, absent in the benchmark cases. These strong constraints can also be translated into a lower mass limit for the lightest neutralino, a supersymmetric partner of the electroweak gauge bosons and Higgs bosons, which is a very good dark matter candidate. In a semi-constrained model, the limit obtained is m{sub x} > 38 GeV/c{sup 2}, thus increasing by about three GeV/c{sup 2} the limit obtained using only supersymmetric particle searches. (author)

    This report summarizes the final results from the OPAL collaboration on searches for neutral Higgs bosons predicted by the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). CP-conserving and for the first time at LEP CP-violating scenarios are studied. New scenarios are also included, which aim to set the stage for Higgs searches at future colliders. The results are based on the data collected with the OPAL detector at e+e- centre-of-mass energies up to 209 GeV. The data are consistent with the prediction of the Standard Model with no Higgs boson produced. Model-independent limits are derived for the cross-section of a number of events topologies motivated by prediction of the MSSM. Limits on Higgs boson masses and other MSSM parameters are obtained for a number of representative MSSM benchmark scenarios. For example, in the CP-conserving scenario mh-max where the MSSM parameters are adjusted to predict the largest range of values for mh at each tan beta, and for a top quark mass of 174.3 GeV, the domain 0.784.5 ...

Our analysis significantly extends previous weak-scale, phenomenological MSSM fits, by adding more and newer experimental analyses, improving the accuracy and detail of theoretical predictions, including dominant uncertainties from the Standard Model, the Galactic dark matter halo and the quark content of the nucleon, and employing novel and highly-efficient statistical sampling methods to scan the parameter space. We find regions of the MSSM7 that exhibit co-annihilation of neutralinos with charginos, stops and sbottoms, as well as models that undergo resonant annihilation via both light and heavy Higgs funnels. We find high-likelihood models with light charginos, stops and sbottoms that have the potential to be within the future reach of the LHC. Large parts of our preferred parameter regions will also be accessible to the next generation of dire...

    We study dark matter at the MSSM pseudoscalar Higgs resonance (A-funnel), which is one of the few remaining MSSM thermal dark matter candidates in the $100-1000$ GeV range safe from direct detection constraints. To illustrate the various factors at play, this study is performed in two contrasting set-ups: a bottom-up phenomenological MSSM (pMSSM) approach that allows significant freedom, and the top-down, highly constrained Yukawa unified $SO(10)$ GUT model. In the pMSSM, for $\\mu > 0$, the entire parameter space lies above the coherent neutrino background and mostly within reach of XENON1T and LZ, while blind spots exist at $m_A\\,> \\, 800\\,$GeV for $\\mu < 0$; the strongest constraints come from $A/H \\rightarrow \\tau \\tau$ searches at the LHC. For Yukawa unified models, the confluence of $B_s \\rightarrow \\mu^+ \\mu^-$ constraints, fits to the bottom quark and Higgs masses, and gluino mass bounds from the LHC result in a prediction: realizing the pseudoscalar resonance $requires$ gaugino mass non-universalit...

    These final results from DELPHI searches for the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson, together with benchmark scans of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) neutral Higgs bosons, used data taken at centre-of-mass energies between 200 and 209 GeV with a total integrated luminosity of 224 pb^-1. The data from 192 to 202 GeV are reanalysed with improved b-tagging for MSSM final states decaying to four b-quarks. The 95% confidence level lower mass bound on the Standard Model Higgs boson is 114.1 GeV/c2. Limits are also given on the lightest scalar and pseudo-scalar Higgs bosons of the MSSM.

    Searches for new physics by the CMS collaboration are interpreted in the framework of the phenomenological minimal supersymmetric standard model (pMSSM). The data samples used in this study were collected at sqrt(s) = 7 and 8 TeV and have integrated luminosities of 5.0 and 19.5 inverse-femtobarns, respectively. A global Bayesian analysis is performed, incorporating results from a broad range of CMS supersymmetry searches, as well as constraints from other experiments. Because the pMSSM incorporates several well-motivated assumptions that reduce the 120 parameters of the MSSM to just 19 parameters defined at the electroweak scale, it is possible to assess the results of the study in a relatively straightforward way. Approximately half of the model points in a potentially accessible subspace of the pMSSM are excluded, including all pMSSM model points with a gluino mass below 500 GeV, as well as models with a squark mass less than 300 GeV. Models with chargino and neutralino masses below 200 GeV are disfavored, but no mass range of model points can be ruled out based on the analyses considered. The nonexcluded regions in the pMSSM parameter space are characterized in terms of physical processes and key observables, and implications for future searches are discussed.

  7. Same-sign trileptons as a signal of sneutrino lightest supersymmetric particle

    Full Text Available Contrary to common expectation, a left-sneutrino can occasionally be the lightest supersymmetric particle. This has important implications in both collider and dark matter studies. We show that same-sign tri-lepton (SS3L events at the Large Hadron Collider, with any lepton having opposite sign vetoed, distinguish such scenarios, up to gluino masses exceeding 2 TeV. The jets+MET signal rate is somewhat suppressed in this case, thus enhancing the scope of leptonic signals.

    Searches for Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) Higgs processes in the context of Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) and Next to MSSM (NMSSM) are presented. The results are based on the first LHC run of pp collision data recorded by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the CERN Large Hadron Collider at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 5 and 20 fb-1 respectively. Current searches constrain large parts of the parameter space. No evidence for BSM Higgs is found.

  11. Neutral Higgs Boson Production at e^+e^- Colliders in the Complex MSSM: Towards the LC Precision

    2016-01-01

    For the search for additional Higgs bosons in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) as well as for future precision analyses in the Higgs sector a precise knowledge of their production properties is mandatory. We review the evaluation of the cross sections for the neutral Higgs boson production at e^+e^- colliders in the MSSM with complex parameters (cMSSM). The evaluation is based on a full one-loop calculation of the production mechanisms e^+e^- -> h_i Z, h_i gamma, h_i h_j (i,j = 1,2,3), including soft and hard QED radiation. The dependence of the Higgs boson production cross sections on the relevant cMSSM parameters is analyzed numerically. We find sizable contributions to many cross sections. They are, depending on the production channel, roughly of 10-20% of the tree-level results, but can go up to 50% or higher.

    A Standard Model-like Higgs near 125 GeV in the MSSM requires multi-TeV stop masses, or a near-maximal contribution to its mass from stop mixing. We investigate the maximal mixing scenario, and in particular its prospects for being realized it in potentially realistic GUT models. We work out constraints on the possible GUT-scale soft terms, which we compare with what can be obtained from some well-known mechanisms of SUSY breaking mediation. Finally, we analyze two promising scenarios in detail, namely gaugino mediation and gravity mediation with non-universal Higgs masses.

  13. Precision calculations for the decay of Higgs bosons in the MSSM

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Zhang, Jianhui

    2009-01-21

    Precision calculations are required for the verification of the standard model (SM) and serve as a useful tool for probing and disentangling new physics beyond the SM. In this thesis we concentrate on the extension of the SM with supersymmetry, i.e. the minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model (MSSM) and investigate the decay processes of Higgs bosons within this model. At tree-level, the light CP-even MSSM Higgs boson, h{sup 0}, becomes SM-like when the other Higgs bosons get heavy. Thus it is of particular interest to investigate the impact of higher order corrections. We present the complete one-loop electroweak radiative corrections to the decay of h{sup 0} to four fermions via gauge boson pair, the results are further improved by currently available two-loop corrections to the Higgs boson self energies. The gauge boson in the photonic one-loop diagrams can become resonant and lead to singularities that have to be regularized by its finite width. To incorporation the gauge boson width, the one-loop integrals that involve such singularities are evaluated analytically. While the one-loop electroweak corrections yield visible effects for a relatively light MSSM Higgs sector, they only give rise to negligible effects when the Higgs bosons other than h{sup 0} become heavy, even if the genuine supersymmetric particle spectrum is relatively light. Consequently it is rather difficult to distinguish the light CP-even MSSM Higgs boson from the SM one if all other MSSM Higgs bosons are heavy, even though the one-loop corrections are included. We also consider the decay of the heavy CP-even MSSM Higgs boson, H{sup 0}, to off-/on-shell gauge boson pair. The one-loop corrections turn out to be significant as the tree-level coupling of H{sup 0} to gauge bosons is usually suppressed. (orig.)

    We calculate ~\\sin^2\\theta(M_Z) ~in the MSSM in terms of ~ \\alpha_{EM}, ~G_F, ~m_t, ~\\tan\\beta ~and SUSY mass parameters with the same accuracy as the present calculations of ~\\sin^2\\theta(M_Z) ~in the SM. We compare the results with the standard leading logarithmic approximation used for SUSY threshold corrections and find important differences in the case of light sparticles. We give approximate formulae connecting coupling constants in the SM and in the MSSM and comment on process dependence of such formulae. The obtained values of the MSSM couplings ~\\alpha_i(M_Z) ~are used to investigate gauge coupling unification in the minimal SUSY ~SU(5) ~model. Our non-logarithmic corrections lower the predicted value of the Higgs triplet mass. The interplay between the supersymmetric and GUT thresholds in achieving unification for the coupling constants in the range of the experimentally acceptable values is quantified.

We impose a variety of theoretical and experimental constraints and perform a detailed scan of the parameter space by means of a Markov Chain Monte-Carlo (MCMC) setup.

Results were interpreted in "classical " neutralino LSP scenario, in the framework of minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) with R-parity conserved. The results of the search have been translated into exclusion domains in the MSSM parameters space and indirect limit on the mass of lightest neutralino for any tan beta and sfermion mass are derived.

    We study neutralino sectors in extensions of the MSSM that dynamically generate the mu-term. The extra neutralino states are superpartners of the Higgs singlets and/or additional gauge bosons. The extended models may have distinct lightest neutralino properties which can have important influences on their phenomenology. We consider constraints on the lightest neutralino from LEP, Tevatron, and (g-2)_mu measurements and the relic density of the dark matter. The lightest neutralino can be extremely light and/or dominated by its singlino component, which does not couple directly to SM particles except Higgs doublets.

    2016-01-01

    The dark matter relic density being a powerful observable to constrain models of new physics, the recent experimental progress calls for more precise theoretical predictions. On the particle physics side, improvements are to be made in the calculation of the (co)annihilation cross-section of the dark matter particle. We present the project DM@NLO which aims at calculating the neutralino (co)annihilation cross-section in the MSSM including radiative corrections in QCD. In the present document, we briefly review selected results for different (co)annihilation processes. We then discuss the estimation of the associated theory uncertainty obtained by varying the renormalization scale. Finally, perspectives are discussed.

    We discuss the resummation of the Goldstone boson contributions to the effective potential of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). This eliminates the formal problems of spurious imaginary parts and logarithmic singularities in the minimization conditions when the tree-level Goldstone boson squared masses are negative or approach zero. The numerical impact of the resummation is shown to be almost always very small. We also show how to write the two-loop minimization conditions so that Goldstone boson squared masses do not appear at all, and so that they can be solved without iteration.

  4. Generalized Soft Breaking Leverage for the MSSM

    Ün, Cem Salih; Kerman, Saime; Solmaz, Levent

    2014-01-01

    In this work we study implications of additional non-holomorphic soft breaking terms (mu', A'_t, A'_b and A'_tau$) on the MSSM phenomenology. By respecting the existing bounds on the mass measurements and restrictions coming from certain B-decays, we probe reactions of the MSSM to these additional soft breaking terms. We provide examples in which some slightly excluded solutions of the MSSM can be made to be consistent with the current experimental results. During this, even after applying additional fine-tuning constraints the non-holomorphic terms are allowed to be as large as hundreds of GeV. Such terms prove that they are capable of enriching the phenomenology and varying the mass spectra of the MSSM heavily, with a reasonable amount of fine-tuning. We observe that higgsinos, the lightest stop, the heavy Higgs boson states A, H, charged H, sbottom and stau exhibit the highest sensitivity to the new terms. We also show how the light stop can become nearly degenerate with top quark using these non-holomorph...

    2015-01-01

    The decay of top-quark to light quarks and Higgs boson is an extremely rare process in the Standard Model (SM) framework. Any measurable signal for this process at the LHC is a smoking gun for new physics. In the framework of Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) there is a possibility that the branching ratio for this process to reach values several orders of magnitude larger than the corresponding of SM. Having as a primary goal the search of Flavour Changing Neutral Currents (FCNC) processes that could be measurable at current or future LHC runing, we present a calculation in the framework of R-parity conserving MSSM for the decay of top quark to light quarks and the Higgs boson. Considering different constraints, and carefully looking at the cancellations that occur between different contributions, we deduce that there are two possible enhanced scenarios for this process: the first arises from the holomorphic SUSY breaking terms containing right handed up squark mass insertions and the second comes...

    For the interpretation of the signal discovered in the Higgs searches at the LHC it will be crucial in particular to discriminate between the minimal Higgs sector realised in the Standard Model (SM) and its most commonly studied extension, the Minimal Supersymmetric SM (MSSM). The measured mass value, having already reached the level of a precision observable with an experimental accuracy of about 500 MeV, plays an important role in this context. In the MSSM the mass of the light CP-even Higgs boson, M{sub h}, can directly be predicted from the other parameters of the model. The accuracy of this prediction should at least match the one of the experimental result. The relatively high mass value of about 126 GeV has led to many investigations where the scalar top quarks are in the multi-TeV range. We improve the prediction for M{sub h} in the MSSM by combining the existing fixed-order result, comprising the full one-loop and leading and subleading two-loop corrections, with a resummation of the leading and subleading logarithmic contributions from the scalar top sector to all orders. In this way for the first time a high-precision prediction for the mass of the light CP-even Higgs boson in the MSSM is possible all the way up to the multi-TeV region of the relevant supersymmetric particles. The results are included in the code FeynHiggs.

    We study deviations between MSSM and $Z_3$ -invariant NMSSM, with respect to their predictions in $\\Delta F = 2$ processes. We find that potentially significant effects arise either from the well known double-penguin diagrams, due to the extra scalar NMSSM states, or from neutralino-gluino box contributions, due to the extended neutralino sector. Both are discussed to be effective in the large $tan \\beta$ regime. Enhanced genuine-NMSSM contributions in double penguins are expected for a light singlet spectrum (CP-even,CP-odd), while the magnitude of box effects is primarily controlled through singlino mixing. The latter is found to be typically subleading (but non-negligible) for $\\lambda \\lesssim 0.5$, however it can become dominant for $\\lambda \\sim$ $O(1)$. We also study the low $\\tan \\beta$ regime, where a distinction between MSSM and NMSSM can come instead due to experimental constraints, acting differently on the allowed parameter space of each model. To this end, we incorporate the recent limits from $...

    We propose a simple interpretation of the 750 GeV diphoton resonance as hinted by the current 13 TeV LHC data, within the context of the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM). In the CP-conserving limit of the theory, the resonance may be identified with the heavier CP-even $H$ boson of the MSSM, whose gluon-fusion production and decay into two photons are enhanced by loops of the lightest supersymmetric partner of the top quark $\\tilde{t}_1$ when its mass $m_{\\tilde{t}_1}$ happens to be near the $\\tilde{t}^*_1\\tilde{t}_1$ threshold, i.e.~for $m_{\\tilde{t}_1} \\sim \\frac12 M_H$ and, to a lesser extent, by resonant contributions due to $\\tilde{t}_1^* \\tilde{t}_1$ bound states. The scenario requires a relatively low supersymmetry-breaking scale~$M_S\\lsim 1$~TeV, but large values of the higgsino mass parameter, $\\mu \\gsim 3$ TeV that leads to a strong $H \\tilde{t}_1 \\tilde{t}_1$ coupling. Such parameters can accommodate the observed mass and standard-like couplings of the 125~GeV $h$ boson...

    We perform a parameter scan of the phenomenological Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (pMSSM) with eight parameters taking into account the experimental Higgs boson results from Run I of the LHC and further low-energy observables. We investigate various MSSM interpretations of the Higgs signal at 125 GeV. First, the light CP-even Higgs boson being the discovered particle. In this case it can impersonate the SM Higgs-like signal either in the decoupling limit, or in the limit of alignment without decoupling. In the latter case, the other states in the Higgs sector can also be light, offering good prospects for upcoming LHC searches and for searches at future colliders. Second, we demonstrate that the heavy CP-even Higgs boson is still a viable candidate to explain the Higgs signal - albeit only in a highly constrained parameter region, that will be probed by LHC searches for the CP-odd Higgs boson and the charged Higgs boson in the near future. As a guidance for such searches we provide new benchmark scena...

    Searches for new physics by the CMS collaboration are interpreted in the framework of the phenomenological minimal supersymmetric standard model (pMSSM). The data samples used in this study were collected at $\\sqrt{s} = $ 7 and 8 TeV and have integrated luminosities of 5.0 fb$^{-1}$ and 19.5 fb$^{-1}$, respectively. A global Bayesian analysis is performed, incorporating results from a broad range of CMS supersymmetry searches, as well as constraints from other experiments. Because the pMSSM incorporates several well-motivated assumptions that reduce the 120 parameters of the MSSM to just 19 parameters defined at the electroweak scale, it is possible to assess the results of the study in a relatively straightforward way. Approximately half of the model points in a potentially accessible subspace of the pMSSM are excluded, including all pMSSM model points with a gluino mass below 500 GeV, as well as models with a squark mass less than 300 GeV. Models with chargino and neutralino masses below 200 GeV are disfav...

    Searches for new physics by the CMS collaboration are interpreted in the framework of the phenomenological minimal supersymmetric standard model (pMSSM). The data samples used in this study were collected at $\\sqrt{s} = $ 7 and 8 TeV and have integrated luminosities of 5.0 fb$^{-1}$ and 19.5 fb$^{-1}$, respectively. A global Bayesian analysis is performed, incorporating results from a broad range of CMS supersymmetry searches, as well as constraints from other experiments. Because the pMSSM incorporates several well-motivated assumptions that reduce the 120 parameters of the MSSM to just 19 parameters defined at the electroweak scale, it is possible to assess the results of the study in a relatively straightforward way. Approximately half of the model points in a potentially accessible subspace of the pMSSM are excluded, including all pMSSM model points with a gluino mass below 500 GeV, as well as models with a squark mass less than 300 GeV. Models with chargino and neutralino masses below 200 GeV are disfav...

    We present the currently most precise W boson mass (M{sub W}) prediction in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) and discuss how it is affected by recent results from the LHC. The evaluation includes the full one-loop result and all known higher order corrections of SM and SUSY type. We show the MSSM prediction in the M{sub W}-m{sub t} plane, taking into account constraints from Higgs and SUSY searches. We point out that even if stops and sbottoms are heavy, relatively large SUSY contributions to M{sub W} are possible if either charginos, neutralinos or sleptons are light. In particular we analyze the effect on the M{sub W} prediction of the Higgs signal at about 125.6 GeV, which within the MSSM can in principle be interpreted as the light or the heavy CP-even Higgs boson. For both interpretations the predicted MSSM region for M{sub W} is in good agreement with the experimental measurement. We furthermore discuss the impact of possible future LHC results in the stop sector on the M{sub W} prediction, considering both the cases of improved limits and of the detection of a scalar top quark.

  13. Bayesian naturalness of the C(N)MSSM

    2013-01-01

    The recent discovery of the 125.5 GeV Higgs boson at the LHC has fuelled interest in the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM) as it may require less fine tuning than the minimal model to accommodate such a heavy Higgs. To this end we present Bayesian naturalness priors to quantify fine tuning in the (N)MSSM. These priors arise automatically as Occam razors in Bayesian model comparison and generalize the conventional Barbieri-Giudice measure. In this letter we show that the naturalness priors capture features of both the Barbieri-Giudice fine tuning measure and a simple ratio measure that has been used in the literature. We also show that according to the naturalness prior the constrained version of the NMSSM is less tuned than the CMSSM.

  14. Search for MSSM Higgs bosons and beyond at CMS

    CERN Document Server

    Asawatangtrakuldee, Chayanit

    2017-01-01

    Searches for beyond the Standard Model (BSM) Higgs bosons are presented, particularly in the context of MSSM and Higgs Triplet Model, including a neutral Higgs boson decays into two tau leptons, charged Higgs bosons in decays of tau lepton and neutrino, charged Higgs bosons in decays of vector bosons, and doubly-charged Higgs boson in three and four lepton final states. The data is collected with the CMS detector at the LHC which corresponds to integrated luminosities of 2.3 and 12.9 fb$^{-1}$ at center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV in 2015 and 2016, respectively. No signature of BSM Higgs boson is observed. The upper limits are placed on the cross-section times branching fraction for each search, as well as interpreted in different models of an extended Higgs sector.

  15. The Quark Flavor Violating Higgs Decay $h \\rightarrow \\bar b s + b \\bar s$ in the MSSM

    Gómez, M E; Rehman, M

    2015-01-01

    We study the quark flavor violating Higgs-boson decay $h \\rightarrow \\bar b s + b \\bar s$ in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). The decay is analyzed first in a model independent, and in a second step in the minimal flavor violationg (MFV) Constrained MSSM. The experimental constraints from $B$-Physics observables (BPO) and electroweak precision observables (EWPO) are also calculated and imposed on the parameter space. It is shown that in some cases the EWPO restrict the flavor violating parameter space stronger than the BPO. In the model independent analysis values of ${\\cal O}(10^{-4})$ can be found for ${\\rm BR}(h \\rightarrow \\bar b s + b \\bar s)$. In the MFV CMSSM such results can only be obtained in very restricted parts of the parameter space. The results show that it is not excluded to observe the decay $h \\rightarrow \\bar b s + b \\bar s$ in the MSSM at future $e^+e^-$ colliders.

  16. Higgs diphoton rate enhancement from supersymmetric physics beyond the MSSM

    CERN Document Server

    Berg, Marcus; Ghilencea, D.M.; Petersson, Christoffer

    2013-01-01

    We show that supersymmetric "new physics" beyond the MSSM can naturally accommodate a Higgs mass near 126 GeV and enhance the signal rate in the Higgs to diphoton channel, while the signal rates in all the other Higgs decay channels coincide with Standard Model expectations, except possibly the Higgs to Z-photon channel. The "new physics" that corrects the relevant Higgs couplings can be captured by two supersymmetric effective operators. We provide a simple example of an underlying model in which these operators are simultaneously generated. The scale of "new physics" that generates these operators can be around 5 TeV or larger, and outside the reach of the LHC.

    2010-04-19

    We discuss the issue of precision gauge unification in the MSSM. We find that a comparably light gluino, as it emerges in certain patterns of soft supersymmetry breaking, can be a key ingredient for ensuring precision gauge unification without relying on the presence of extra particles around the scale of grand unification. In particular, the so-called mirage pattern for gaugino masses can naturally lead to precision gauge unification. There is also an interesting correlation with reduced fine-tuning, due to rather light gluinos.

    We present an overview of searches for MSSM Higgs at the Tevatron, concentrating on searches probing the high tan(beta) region. We discuss the search for A/H -> tau tau which is soon to be completed in the Run I data and review the new tau triggers implemented by CDF and D0 in Run II, which will greatly impact this analysis. We also present the results of a Run I search for A/H bb -> bbbb performed by CDF and highlight expected improvements in this channel by both experiments in Run II.

    We analyze the nMSSM with CP violation in the singlet sector. We study the static and dynamical properties of the electroweak phase transition. We conclude that electroweak baryogenesis in this model is generic in the sense that if the present limits on the mass spectrum are applied, no severe additional tuning is required to obtain a strong first-order phase transition and to generate a sufficient baryon asymmetry. For this we determine the shape of the nucleating bubbles, including the profiles of CP-violating phases. The baryon asymmetry is calculated using the advanced transport theory to first and second order in gradient expansion presented recently. Still, first and second generation sfermions must be heavy to avoid large electric dipole moments.

    2008-01-01

    We discuss ILC measurements for a specific MSSM scenario with CP phases, where the lightest neutralino is a good candidate for dark matter, annihilating efficiently through t-channel exchange of light staus. These prospective (CP-even) ILC measurements are then used to fit the underlying model parameters. A collider prediction of the relic density of the neutralino from this fit gives 0.116

  1. Exploring MSSM for Charge and Color Breaking and Other Constraints in the Context of Higgs@125 GeV

    CERN Document Server

    Chattopadhyay, Utpal

    2014-01-01

    Exploring MSSM parameter space after the discovery of Higgs Boson with mass 125 GeV naturally demands large top-squark mixing or large trilinear coupling parameter $A_t$ in particular, so as to avoid excessively heavy squark, specially for the universal models like CMSSM. We study stability of electroweak symmetry breaking vacua in possible presence of deeper charge-color symmetry breaking minima within MSSM. Besides stable vacua, we consider scenarios characterized by the presence of global CCB minima, with SM like charge and color conserving vacuum, having stability over cosmologically large lifetime {(\\it long-lived states)}. We allow vacuum expectation values for both stop as well as sbottom fields, since these belong to the third generation of sfermions with larger Yukawa couplings that have immediate effect on the tunneling time. Moreover, for large $\\mu$ regions, radiative corrections to Higgs boson mass from bottom-squark loop is quite significant. Regions of MSSM parameters space become viable for la...

  2. Discrete symmetries in the MSSM

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Schieren, Roland

    2010-12-02

    The use of discrete symmetries, especially abelian ones, in physics beyond the standard model of particle physics is discussed. A method is developed how a general, abelian, discrete symmetry can be obtained via spontaneous symmetry breaking. In addition, anomalies are treated in the path integral approach with special attention to anomaly cancellation via the Green-Schwarz mechanism. All this is applied to the minimal supersymmetric standard model. A unique Z{sup R}{sub 4} symmetry is discovered which solves the {mu}-problem as well as problems with proton decay and allows to embed the standard model gauge group into a simple group, i.e. the Z{sup R}{sub 4} is compatible with grand unification. Also the flavor problem in the context of minimal flavor violation is addressed. Finally, a string theory model is presented which exhibits the mentioned Z{sup R}{sub 4} symmetry and other desirable features. (orig.)

  3. Enhanced rates for diphoton resonances in the MSSM

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Abdelhak Djouadi

    2017-02-01

    Full Text Available We propose a simple mechanism for copiously producing heavy Higgs bosons with enhanced decay rates to two photons at the LHC, within the context of the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM. In the CP-conserving limit of the theory, such a diphoton resonance may be identified with the heavier CP-even H boson, whose gluon–fusion production and decay into two photons are enhanced by loops of the lightest supersymmetric partner of the top quark t˜1 when its mass mt˜1 happens to be near the t˜1⁎t˜1 threshold, i.e. for mt˜1≃12MH. The scenario requires a relatively low supersymmetry-breaking scale MS≲1 TeV, but large values of the higgsino mass parameter, μ≳1 TeV, that lead to a strong Ht˜1⁎t˜1 coupling. Such parameters can accommodate the observed mass and standard-like couplings of the 125 GeV h boson in the MSSM, while satisfying all other constraints from the LHC and dark matter searches. Additional enhancement to the diphoton rate could be provided by Coulombic QCD corrections and, to a lesser extent, by resonant contributions due to t˜1⁎t˜1 bound states. To discuss the characteristic features of such a scenario, we consider as an illustrative example the case of a diphoton resonance with a mass of approximately 750 GeV, for which an excess was observed in the early LHC 13 TeV data and which later turned out to be simply a statistical fluctuation.

  5. The MSSM Spectrum from (0,2)-Deformations of the Heterotic Standard Embedding

    Braun, Volker; Davies, Rhys; Donagi, Ron

    2011-01-01

    We construct supersymmetric compactifications of E_8 \\times E_8 heterotic string theory which realise exactly the massless spectrum of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) at low energies. The starting point is the standard embedding on a Calabi-Yau threefold which has Hodge numbers (h^11,h^21) = (1,4) and fundamental group Z_12, which gives an E_6 grand unified theory with three net chiral generations. The gauge symmetry is then broken to that of the standard model by a combination of discrete Wilson lines and continuous deformation of the gauge bundle. On eight distinct branches of the moduli space, we find stable bundles with appropriate cohomology groups to give exactly the massless spectrum of the MSSM.

  6. MSSM without a free parameter

    Kitano, Ryuichiro; Nagai, Minoru

    2016-01-01

    It is often argued that the minimal supersymmetric standard model has O(100) free parameters and the generic parameter region is already excluded by the null observation of the flavor and CP violating processes as well as the constraints from the LHC experiments. This situation naturally leads us to consider the case where all the dangerous soft supersymmetry breaking terms such as the scalar masses and scalar couplings are absent, while only the unified gaugino mass term and the mu term are non-vanishing at the grand unification scale. We revisit this simple situation taking into account the observed Higgs boson mass, 125 GeV. Since the gaugino mass and the mu term are fixed in order to explain the Higgs boson and the Z boson masses, there is no free parameter left in this scenario. We find that there are three independent parameter sets exist including ones which have not been discussed in the literature. We also find that the abundance of the dark matter can be explained by relic gravitinos which are non-t...

    We examine the ability for the Large Area Telescope (LAT) to constrain Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) dark matter through a combined analysis of Milky Way dwarf spheroidal galaxies. We examine the Lightest Supersymmetric Particles (LSPs) for a set of {approx}71k experimentally valid supersymmetric models derived from the phenomenological-MSSM (pMSSM). We find that none of these models can be excluded at 95% confidence by the current analysis; nevertheless, many lie within the predicted reach of future LAT analyses. With two years of data, we find that the LAT is currently most sensitive to light LSPs (mLSP < 50 GeV) annihilating into {tau}-pairs and heavier LSPs annihilating into b{bar b}. Additionally, we find that future LAT analyses will be able to probe some LSPs that form a sub-dominant component of dark matter. We directly compare the LAT results to direct detection experiments and show the complementarity of these search methods.

  8. Neutral MSSM Higgs-boson production with heavy quarks: NLO supersymmetric QCD corrections

    Dittmaier, Stefan; Krämer, Michael; Spira, Michael; Walser, Manuel

    2014-01-01

    Within the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM) the associated production of neutral Higgs bosons with top and bottom quarks belongs to the most important Higgs-boson production processes at the LHC. At large values of tan(beta), in particular, bottom--Higgs associated production constitutes the dominant production channel within the MSSM. We have calculated the next-to-leading-order supersymmetric QCD corrections to neutral Higgs production through the parton processes q qbar, gg -> t tbar / b bbar + h/H/A and present results for the total cross sections. The genuine SUSY-QCD corrections are of moderate size for small tan(beta), but can be sizable for large tan(beta). In the latter case the bulk of these corrections can be absorbed into effective bottom Yukawa couplings.

    Updated results on the search of Higgs bosons at the LHC with up to 17 fb{sup −1} of data have just been presented by the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations. New constraints are provided by the LHCb and XENON experiments with the observation of the rare decay B{sub s}→μ{sup +}μ{sup −} and new limits on dark matter direct detection. In this Letter, we update and extend the results on the implications of these data on the phenomenological Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (pMSSM) by using high statistics, flat scans of its 19 parameters. The new LHC data on bb{sup ¯} and ττ decays of the lightest Higgs state and the new CMS limits from the ττ searches for the heavier Higgs states set stronger constraints on the pMSSM parameter space.

  10. The Higgs boson mass in a natural MSSM with nonuniversal gaugino masses at the GUT scale

    Abe, Hiroyuki; Otsuka, Hajime

    2012-01-01

    We identify a parameter region where the mass of the lightest CP-even Higgs boson resides in $124.4-126.8$ GeV, and at the same time the degree of tuning a Higgsino-mass parameter (so-called $\\mu$-parameter) is relaxed above 10% in the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) with soft supersymmetry breaking terms, by solving the full set of one-loop renormalization group equations numerically. It is found that certain nonuniversal values of gaugino-mass parameters at the so-called grand unification theory (GUT) scale $\\sim 10^{16}$ GeV are important ingredients for the MSSM to predict, without a severe fine-tuning, the Higgs boson mass $\\sim 125$ GeV indicated by recent observations at the Large Hadron Collider. We also show a typical superparticle spectrum in this parameter region.

    In the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) we present the corrections to the heavy neutral CP-even Higgs-boson production in the WW-fusion and Higgs-strahlung channel, e +e - → overlinevv H , taking into account all O(α) corrections arising from loops of fermions and sfermions. While the H boson shows decoupling behavior at the tree-level, we find non-negligible loop corrections that can enhance the cross section considerably. At a center-of-mass energy of √ s = 1000 GeV, masses of up to MH ⪅ 750 GeV are accessible at the LC in favorable regions of the MSSM parameter space.

    This thesis presents the results on a search for the neutral MSSM Higgs bosons decaying to tau pairs, with least one of these taus decays leptonically. The search was performed with a sample of 1.8 fb-1 of proton-antiproton collisions at √s = 1.96 TeV provided by the Tevatron and collected by CDF Run II. No significant excess over the Standard Model prediction was found and a 95% confidence level exclusion limit have been set on the cross section times branching ratio as a function of the Higgs boson mass. This limit has been translated into the MSSM Higgs sector parameter plane, tanβ vs. MA, for the four different benchmark scenarios.

    We present the full $\\mathcal{O}(\\alpha_s)$ supersymmetric QCD corrections for gaugino annihilation and co-annihilation into light and heavy quarks in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). We demonstrate that these channels are phenomenologically relevant within the so-called phenomenological MSSM. We discuss selected technical details such as the dipole subtraction method in the case of light quarks and the treatment of the bottom quark mass and Yukawa coupling. Numerical results for the (co-)annihilation cross sections and the predicted neutralino relic density are presented. We show that the impact of including the radiative corrections on the cosmologically preferred region of the parameter space is larger than the current experimental uncertainty from Planck data.

    Heinemeyer, S; Tracas, N; Zoupanos, G

    2014-01-01

    We apply the method of reduction of couplings in a Finite Unified Theory and in the MSSM. The method consists on searching for renormalization group invariant relations among couplings of a renormalizable theory holding to all orders in perturbation theory. It has a remarkable predictive power since, at the unification scale, it leads to relations between gauge and Yukawa couplings in the dimensionless sectors and relations involving the trilinear terms and the Yukawa couplings, as well as a sum rule among the scalar masses and the unified gaugino mass in the soft breaking sector. In both the MSSM and the FUT model we predict the masses of the top and bottom quarks and the light Higgs in remarkable agreement with the experiment. Furthermore we also predict the masses of the other Higgses, as well as the supersymmetric spectrum, both being in very confortable agreement with the LHC bounds on Higgs and supersymmetric particles.

    Hisano, Junji; Yamanaka, Masato; Yang, Masaki Jung Soo

    2010-01-01

    We discuss the $\\mu$-$e$ transition processes induced by non-holomorphic Yukawa interactions in the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM). When supersymmetry is broken, the coupling structures between Higgs doublets and leptons are modified and flavor-changing neutral currents could be generated. In the framework of the MSSM, we calculate those effects to the rates for $\\meg$, $\\meee$, and $\\mu$-$e$ conversion in nuclei. We perform more detailed calculations of the lepton flavor violating (LFV) operators in the heavy Higgs decoupling limit than previous works, and show the accurate $\\tan\\beta$ dependence of them. Furthermore, we compare the contribution to the LFV operators mediated by Higgs bosons with the one generated gaugino/slepton exchange, and discuss the competition between these two effects.

    2015-07-01

    We investigate the MSSM for the exotic scenario tan β → ∞ where one of the Higgs doublets does not obtain a vacuum expectation value. This leads to the masses of the down-type fermions being created completely on loop level. The one-loop results for the self energies can be used to calculate the Yukawa couplings which is explicitly done for the muon and utilized to compute the supersymmetric contributions to its anomalous magnetic moment. We identify the parameter regions in which these contributions are capable of explaining the discrepancy between Standard Model prediction and experimental result. Compared to the usual MSSM, this is possible with higher SUSY masses at the expense of a large muon Yukawa coupling. Other constraints like the metastability of the electroweak vacuum are considered as well.

    These notes are an expanded version of a short course of lectures given for graduate students in particle physics at Oxford. The level was intended to be appropriate for students in both experimental and theoretical particle physics.The purpose is to present an elementary and self-contained introduction to SUSY that follows on, relatively straightforwardly, from graduate-level courses in relativistic quantum mechanics and introductory quantum field theory. The notation adopted, at least initially, is one widely used in RQM courses, rather than the `spinor calculus' (dotted and undotted indices) notation found in most SUSY sources, though the latter is introduced in optional Asides. There is also a strong preference for a `do-it-yourself' constructive approach, rather than for a top-down formal deductive treatment. The main goal is to provide a practical understanding of how the softly broken MSSM is constructed. Relatively less space is devoted to phenomenology, though simple `classic' results are covered, in...

    For the interpretation of the signal discovered in the Higgs searches at the LHC it will be crucial in particular to discriminate between the minimal Higgs sector realised in the Standard Model (SM) and its most commonly studied extension, the Minimal Supersymmetric SM (MSSM). The measured mass value, having already reached the level of a precision observable with an experimental accuracy of about 500 MeV, plays an important role in this context. In the MSSM the mass of the light CP-even Higgs boson, M_h, can directly be predicted from the other parameters of the model. The accuracy of this prediction should at least match the one of the experimental result. The relatively high mass value of about 126 GeV has led to many investigations where the scalar top quarks are in the multi-TeV range. We improve the prediction for M_h in the MSSM by combining the existing fixed-order result, comprising the full one-loop and leading and subleading two-loop corrections, with a resummation of the leading and subleading log...

    The Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model can possess several CP-violating phases beyond the conventional Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa phase. We calculate the contribution of these phases to T-violating nuclear forces. These forces induce a Schiff moment in the $^{199}$Hg nucleus, which is strongly limited by experiments aimed at the detection of the electric dipole moment of the mercury atom. The result for $d_{Hg}$ is found to be very sensitive to the CP-violating phases of the MSSM and the calculation carries far fewer QCD uncertainties than the corresponding calculation of the neutron EDM. In certain regions of the MSSM parameter space, the limit from the mercury EDM is stronger than previous constraints based on either the neutron or electron EDMs. We present combined constraints from the mercury and electron EDMs to limit both CP-violating phases of the MSSM. We also present limits in mSUGRA models with unified gaugino and scalar masses at the GUT scale.

    The interpretation of the Higgs signal at {proportional_to}126 GeV within the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) depends crucially on the predicted properties of the other Higgs states of the model, as the mass of the charged Higgs boson, M{sub H}{sup {sub {+-}}}. This mass is calculated in the Feynman-diagrammatic approach within the MSSM with real parameters. The result includes the complete one-loop contributions and the two-loop contributions of O({alpha}{sub t}{alpha}{sub s}). The one-loop contributions lead to sizable shifts in the M{sub H}{sup {sub {+-}}} prediction, reaching up to {proportional_to}8 GeV for relatively small values of M{sub A}. Even larger effects can occur depending on the sign and size of the {mu} parameter that enters the corrections affecting the relation between the bottom-quark mass and the bottom Yukawa coupling. The two-loop O({alpha}{sub t}{alpha}{sub s}) terms can shift M{sub H}{sup {sub {+-}}} by more than 2 GeV. The two-loop contributions amount to typically about 30% of the one-loop corrections for the examples that we have studied. These effects can be relevant for precision analyses of the charged MSSM Higgs boson.

    We examine the trilinear self-coupling of the SM-like 125 GeV Higgs boson ($h$) in the minimal supersymmetric model (MSSM) and the next-to-minimal supersymmetric model (NMSSM) after the LHC Run-1. Considering the current experimental constraints, such as the Higgs data, the flavor constraints, the electroweak precision observables as well as the dark matter detections, we scan over the parameter space and obtain the following observations: (1) In the MSSM, the self-coupling is suppressed relative to the SM value. But, due to the tightly constrained parameter space, such a suppression is rather weak and the ratio $\\lambda^{\\rm MSSM}_{hhh}/\\lambda^{\\rm SM}_{hhh}$ is above 0.97; (2) In the NMSSM with $\\lambda0.7$ (also called $\\lambda$-SUSY), the self-coupling can be greatly suppressed or enhanced relative to the SM value (with the ratio $\\lambda^{\\rm NMSSM}_{hhh}/\\lambda^{\\rm SM}_{hhh}$ varying from -1.1 to 1.9), accompanied by a sizable change in $h\\tau^+\\tau^-$ coupling.

    We study the quark flavor violating Higgs boson decay h →b ¯s +b s ¯ in the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM). The decay is analyzed first in a model-independent approach and second in the minimal flavor violating (MFV) constrained MSSM. The experimental constraints from B -physics observables (BPO) and electroweak precision observables (EWPO) are also calculated and imposed on the parameter space. It is shown that, in some cases, the EWPO restrict the flavor violating parameter space more than the BPO. In the model-independent analysis, values of O (1 0-4 ) can be found for BR (h →b ¯s +b s ¯ ). In the MFV constrained MSSM (CMSSM), such results can only be obtained in very restricted parts of the parameter space. The results show that observation of the decay h →b ¯s +b s ¯ in the MSSM at future e+e- colliders is not excluded.

    A search for neutral Higgs bosons in the minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model (MSSM) decaying to tau-lepton pairs in pp collisions is performed, using events recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC. The dataset corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 24.6 fb$^{-1}$, with 4.9 fb$^{-1}$ at 7 TeV and 19.7 fb$^{-1}$ at 8 TeV. To enhance the sensitivity to neutral MSSM Higgs bosons, the search includes the case where the Higgs boson is produced in association with a b-quark jet. No excess is observed in the tau-lepton-pair invariant mass spectrum. Exclusion limits are presented in the MSSM parameter space for different benchmark scenarios, $m_\\mathrm{h}^\\text{max}$, $m_\\mathrm{h}^{\\text{mod}+}$, $m_\\mathrm{h}^{\\text{mod}-}$, light-stop, light-stau, $\\tau$-phobic, and low-$m_\\mathrm{H}$. Upper limits on the cross section times branching fraction for gluon fusion and b-quark associated Higgs boson production are also given.

    We study an extension of the Higgs sector of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), considering the effects of new degrees of freedom at the TeV scale, and allowing for sources of CP violation beyond the MSSM (BMSSM). We analyze the impact of the BMSSM sources of CP violation on the Higgs collider phenomenology and on low energy flavor and CP violating observables. We identify distinct Higgs collider signatures that cannot be realized, either in the case without CP violating phases or in the CP violating MSSM, and investigate the prospects to probe them at the Tevatron and the LHC. The most striking benchmark scenario has three neutral Higgs bosons that all decay dominantly into W boson pairs and that are well within the reach of the 7 TeV LHC run. On the other hand, we also present scenarios with three Higgs bosons that have masses M_Hi > 150 GeV and decay dominantly into b bbar. Such scenarios are much more challenging to probe and can even lie completely outside the reach of the 7 TeV LHC run. W...

    A search for neutral Higgs bosons in the minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model (MSSM) decaying to tau-lepton pairs in pp collisions is performed, using events recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC. The dataset corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 24.6 fb$^{-1}$, with 4.9 fb$^{-1}$ at 7 TeV and 19.7 fb$^{-1}$ at 8 TeV. To enhance the sensitivity to neutral MSSM Higgs bosons, the search includes the case where the Higgs boson is produced in association with a b-quark jet. No excess is observed in the tau-lepton-pair invariant mass spectrum. Exclusion limits are presented in the MSSM parameter space for different benchmark scenarios, $m_\\mathrm{h}^\\text{max}$, $m_\\mathrm{h}^{\\text{mod}+}$, $m_\\mathrm{h}^{\\text{mod}-}$, light-stop, light-stau, $\\tau$-phobic, and low-$m_\\mathrm{H}$. Upper limits on the cross section times branching fraction for gluon fusion and b-quark associated Higgs boson production are also given.

    We confront the discovery of a boson decaying to two photons, as reported recently by ATLAS and CMS, with the corresponding predictions in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) and the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM). We perform a scan over the relevant regions of parameter space in both models and evaluate the MSSM and NMSSM predictions for the dominant Higgs production channel and the photon photon decay channel. Taking into account the experimental constraints from previous direct searches, flavour physics, electroweak measurements as well as theoretical considerations, we find that a Higgs signal in the two photon channel with a rate equal to, or above, the SM prediction is viable over the full mass range 123 GeVMSSM and the NMSSM. We find that besides the interpretation of a possible signal at about 125 GeV in terms of the lightest CP-even Higgs boson, both the MSSM and the NMSSM permit also a viable interpretation where an observed state at about 125 GeV would correspond to the second-lightest CP-even Higgs boson in the spectrum, which would be accompanied by another light Higgs with suppressed couplings to W and Z bosons. We find that a significant enhancement of the {gamma}{gamma} rate, compatible with the signal strengths observed by ATLAS and CMS, is possible in both the MSSM and the NMSSM, and we analyse in detail different mechanisms in the two models that can give rise to such an enhancement. We briefly discuss also our predictions in the two models for the production and subsequent decay into two photons of a CP-odd Higgs boson.

    For the search for additional Higgs bosons in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) as well as for future precision analyses in the Higgs sector precise knowledge of their production properties is mandatory. We evaluate the cross sections for the charged Higgs boson production at e+e- colliders in the MSSM with complex parameters (cMSSM). The evaluation is based on a full one-loop calculation of the production mechanism e+e- -> H+H- and e+e- -> H^\\pm W^\\mp, including soft and hard QED radiation. The dependence of the Higgs boson production cross sections on the relevant cMSSM parameters is analyzed numerically. We find sizable contributions to many cross sections. They are, depending on the production channel, roughly of 5-10% of the tree-level results, but can go up to 20% or higher. The full one-loop contributions are important for a future linear e+e- collider such as the ILC or CLIC.

    In this article we analyze the impact of B-physics and Higgs physics at LEP on standard and non-standard Higgs bosons searches at the Tevatron and the LHC, within the framework of minimal flavor violating supersymmetric models. The B-physics constraints we consider come from the experimental measurements of the rare B-decays b {yields} s{gamma} and B{sub u} {yields} {tau}{nu} and the experimental limit on the B{sub s} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -} branching ratio. We show that these constraints are severe for large values of the trilinear soft breaking parameter A{sub t}, rendering the non-standard Higgs searches at hadron colliders less promising. On the contrary these bounds are relaxed for small values of A{sub t} and large values of the Higgsino mass parameter {mu}, enhancing the prospects for the direct detection of non-standard Higgs bosons at both colliders. We also consider the available ATLAS and CMS projected sensitivities in the standard model Higgs search channels, and we discuss the LHC's ability in probing the whole MSSM parameter space. In addition we also consider the expected Tevatron collider sensitivities in the standard model Higgs h {yields} b{bar b} channel to show that it may be able to find 3 {sigma} evidence in the B-physics allowed regions for small or moderate values of the stop mixing parameter.

  10. Plateau Inflation in $R$-parity Violating MSSM

    2016-01-01

    Inflation with plateau potentials give the best fit to the CMB observables as they predict tensor to scalar ratio stringently bounded by the observations from Planck and BICEP2/Keck. In supergravity models it is possible to obtain plateau potentials for scalar fields in the Einstein frame which can serve as the inflation potential by considering higher dimensional Planck suppressed operators and by the choice of non-canonical K\\"ahler potentials. We construct a plateau inflation model in MSSM where the inflation occurs along a sneutrino-Higgs flat direction. A hidden sector Polonyi field is used for the breaking of supersymmetry at the end of the inflation. The SUSY breaking results in a TeV scale gravitino mass and scalar masses and gives rise to bilinear and triliear couplings of scalars which can be tested at the LHC. The sneutrino inflation field can be observed at the LHC as a TeV scale diphoton resonance like the one reported by CMS and ATLAS.

    We use the framework of the p19MSSM to perform a fit to the mild excesses over the Standard Model background recently observed in three bins of the ATLAS 1-lepton + (b-)jets + E_T^{ {miss}} search. We find a few types of spectra that can fit the emerging signal and at the same time are not excluded by other LHC searches. They can be grouped roughly in two categories. The first class is characterized by the presence of one stop or stop and sbottoms with mass in the ballpark of 700-800 GeV and a neutralino LSP of mass around 400 GeV, with or without the additional presence of an intermediate chargino. In the second type of scenarios the stop, lightest chargino, sbottom if present, and the neutralino are about or heavier than {˜ } 650 GeV and the signal originates from cascade decays of squarks of the 1st and 2nd generation, which should have a mass of 1.1-1.2 TeV. For the best-fit scenarios, we compare the global chi-squared with several ATLAS and CMS searches with the corresponding chi-squared of the Standard Model expectation, showing that the putative signal is also favored globally with respect to the background-only hypothesis. We point out that if the observed excess persists in the next round of data, it should be accompanied by associated significant excesses in all-hadronic final-state searches.

    Inflation with plateau potentials give the best fit to the CMB observables as they predict tensor to scalar ratio stringently bounded by the observations from Planck and BICEP2/Keck. In supergravity models it is possible to obtain plateau potentials for scalar fields in the Einstein frame which can serve as the inflation potential by considering higher dimensional Planck suppressed operators and by the choice of non-canonical Kähler potentials. We construct a plateau inflation model in MSSM where the inflation occurs along a sneutrino-Higgs flat direction. A hidden sector Polonyi field is used for the breaking of supersymmetry after the end of the inflation. The proper choice of superpotential leads to strong stabilization of the Polonyi field, mZ2 ≫m3/22, which is required to solve the cosmological moduli problem. Also, the SUSY breaking results in a TeV scale gravitino mass and scalar masses and gives rise to bilinear and trilinear couplings of scalars which can be tested at the LHC. The sneutrino inflation field can be observed at the LHC as a TeV scale diphoton resonance like the one reported by CMS and ATLAS.

  13. MSSM Electroweak Baryogenesis and LHC Data

    2013-02-01

    Electroweak baryogenesis is an attractive scenario for the generation of the baryon asymmetry of the universe as its realization depends on the presence at the weak scale of new particles which may be searched for at high energy colliders. In the MSSM it may only be realized in the presence of light stops, and with moderate or small mixing between the left- and right-handed components. Consistency with the observed Higgs mass around 125 GeV demands the heavier stop mass to be much larger than the weak scale. Moreover the lighter stop leads to an increase of the gluon-gluon fusion Higgs production cross section which seems to be in contradiction with indications from current LHC data. We show that this tension may be considerably relaxed in the presence of a light neutralino with a mass lower than about 60 GeV, satisfying all present experimental constraints. In such a case the Higgs may have a significant invisible decay width and the stop decays through a three or four body decay channel, including a bottom quark and the lightest neutralino in the final state. All these properties make this scenario testable at a high luminosity LHC.

    Full Text Available We work out the phenomenology of a model of supersymmetry breaking in the presence of a tiny (tunable positive cosmological constant, proposed by the authors in arXiv:1403.1534. It utilizes a single chiral multiplet with a gauged shift symmetry that can be identified with the string dilaton (or an appropriate compactification modulus. The model is coupled to the MSSM, leading to calculable soft supersymmetry breaking masses and a distinct low energy phenomenology that allows to differentiate it from other models of supersymmetry breaking and mediation mechanisms.

    As is well known, the search for and eventual identification of dark matter in supersymmetry requires a simultaneous, multipronged approach with important roles played by the LHC as well as both direct and indirect dark matter detection experiments. We examine the capabilities of these approaches in the 19-parameter phenomenological MSSM which provides a general framework for complementarity studies of neutralino dark matter. We summarize the sensitivity of dark matter searches at the 7 and 8 (and eventually 14) TeV LHC, combined with those by Fermi, CTA, IceCube/DeepCore, COUPP, LZ and XENON. The strengths and weaknesses of each of these techniques are examined and contrasted and their interdependent roles in covering the model parameter space are discussed in detail. We find that these approaches explore orthogonal territory and that advances in each are necessary to cover the supersymmetric weakly interacting massive particle parameter space. We also find that different experiments have widely varying sensitivities to the various dark matter annihilation mechanisms, some of which would be completely excluded by null results from these experiments.

  16. Light Stops and Fine-Tuning in MSSM

    Cici, Ali; Un, Cem Salih

    2016-01-01

    We discuss the fine-tuning issue within the MSSM framework. Following the idea that the fine-tuning can measure effects of some missing mechanisms we impose non-universal gaugino masses at the GUT scale, and explore the low scale implications. We consider the stop mass with a special importance and consider the mass scales which are excluded by the LHC experiments. We find that the stop mass can be as light as 200 GeV, while the mass scales below this scale are excluded by the experimental constraints imposed in our analyses. After discussing the fine-tuning and its implications, we consider detection of stop quarks at LHC over some benchmark points which yield stop masses in a range 200-700 GeV. Even though the LHC constraints are severe and they exclude this mass scales for the stop quark, we show that the stops can still escape from detection, when the model is restricted from the GUT scale.

    Searches for Beyond the Standard Model Higgs processes in the context of Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model and Next to MSSM are presented. The results are based on the first LHC run of pp collision data recorded by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the CERN Large Hadron Collider at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, corresponding to integrated luminosities of about 5 and 20 fb$^{-1}$ respectively. Current searches constrain large parts of the parameter space. No evidence for BSM Higgs is found.

  1. Heavy bino dark matter and collider signals in the MSSM with vectorlike fourth-generation particles

    2016-11-01

    MSSM4G models, in which the minimal supersymmetric standard model is extended to include vectorlike copies of standard model particles, are promising possibilities for weak-scale supersymmetry. In particular, two models, called QUE and QDEE, realize the major virtues of supersymmetry (naturalness consistent with the 125 GeV Higgs boson, gauge coupling unification, and thermal relic neutralino dark matter) without the need for fine-tuned relations between particle masses. We determine the implications of these models for dark matter and collider searches. The QUE and QDEE models revive the possibility of heavy bino dark matter with mass in the range 300-700 GeV, which is not usually considered. Dark matter direct detection cross sections are typically below current limits, but are naturally expected above the neutrino floor and may be seen at next-generation experiments. Indirect detection prospects are bright at the Cherenkov Telescope Array, provided the fourth-generation leptons have mass above 350 GeV or decay to taus. In a completely complementary way, discovery prospects at the LHC are dim if the fourth-generation leptons are heavy or decay to taus, but are bright for fourth-generation leptons with masses below 350 GeV that decay either to electrons or to muons. We conclude that the combined set of direct detection, CTA, and LHC experiments will discover or exclude these MSSM4G models in the coming few years, assuming the Milky Way has an Einasto dark matter profile.

    This thesis presents the search for neutral Minimal Supersymmetric extension of Standard Model (MSSM) Higgs bosons decaying to tau pairs where one of the taus decays leptonically, and the other one hadronically. CDF Run II data with Lint = 310 pb-1 are used. There is no evidence of MSSM Higgs existence, which results in the upper limits on σ(p$\\bar{p}$ → Φ) x BR(Φ → ττ) in mA range between 115 and 250 GeV. These limits exclude some area in tan β vs mA parameter space.

    DELPHI data collected at centre-of-mass energies up to 208 GeV have been analysed to search for charginos, neutralinos and sfermions in the framework of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) with R-parity conservation. No evidence for a signal was found in any of the channels. The results of each search were used to derive limits on production cross-sections and particle masses. In addition, the combined result of all searches excludes regions in the parameter space of the constrained MSSM, leading to limits on the mass of the Lightest Supersymmetric Particle and other supersymmetric particles.

    2011-01-01

    We present a phenomenological appraisal of the results of several searches for Supersymmetry (SUSY) performed at the LHC by the CMS collaboration and interpreted in the context of the cMSSM. Part of the analysis focuses on which SUSY production processes are being probed. We observe that much of the current exclusion region is dominated by squark-squark and squark-gluino production, and explain the shape of the exclusion curves. Based on this analysis and an estimation of future reach, additional simplified models are suggested. Other phenomenological details are discussed, such as the effect of radiation on acceptance.

    The search for the production of weakly interacting SUSY particles at the LHC is crucial for testing supersymmetry in relation to dark matter. Decays of neutralinos into Higgs bosons occur over some significant part of the SUSY parameter space and represent the most important source of h boson production in SUSY decay chains in the MSSM. We study h production in neutralino decays using scans of the phenomenological MSSM. Whilst in constrained MSSM scenarios the decay χ{sup -bar}{sub 2}{sup 0}→hχ{sup -bar}{sub 1}{sup 0} is the dominant channel, this does not hold in more general MSSM scenarios. On the other hand, the χ{sup -bar}{sub 2,3}{sup 0}→hχ{sup -bar}{sub 1}{sup 0} decays remain important and are highly complementary to multi-lepton final states in the LHC searches. The perspectives for the LHC analyses at 8 and 14 TeV as well as the reach of an e{sup +}e{sup -} collider with √s=0.5,1,1.5 and 3 TeV are discussed.

    We present a frequentist analysis of the parameter space of the pMSSM10, in which the following 10 soft SUSY-breaking parameters are specified independently at the mean scalar top mass scale Msusy = Sqrt[M_stop1 M_stop2]: the gaugino masses M_{1,2,3}, the 1st-and 2nd-generation squark masses M_squ1 = M_squ2, the third-generation squark mass M_squ3, a common slepton mass M_slep and a common trilinear mixing parameter A, the Higgs mixing parameter mu, the pseudoscalar Higgs mass M_A and tan beta. We use the MultiNest sampling algorithm with 1.2 x 10^9 points to sample the pMSSM10 parameter space. A dedicated study shows that the sensitivities to strongly-interacting SUSY masses of ATLAS and CMS searches for jets, leptons + MET signals depend only weakly on many of the other pMSSM10 parameters. With the aid of the Atom and Scorpion codes, we also implement the LHC searches for EW-interacting sparticles and light stops, so as to confront the pMSSM10 parameter space with all relevant SUSY searches.

    We present a frequentist analysis of the parameter space of the pMSSM10, in which the following 10 soft SUSY-breaking parameters are specified independently at the mean scalar top mass scale M{sub SUSY}≡√(m{sub t{sub 1}}m{sub t{sub 2}}): the gaugino masses M{sub 1,2,3}, the 1st-and 2nd-generation squark masses m{sub q{sub 1}}=m{sub q{sub 2}}, the third-generation squark mass m{sub q{sub 3}}, a common slepton mass M{sub l} and a common trilinear mixing parameter A, the Higgs mixing parameter μ, the pseudoscalar Higgs mass M{sub A} and tan β. We use the MultiNest sampling algorithm with ∝1.2 x 10{sup 9} points to sample the pMSSM10 parameter space. A dedicated study shows that the sensitivities to strongly-interacting SUSY masses of ATLAS and CMS searches for jets, leptons+E{sub T} signals depend only weakly on many of the other pMSSM10 parameters. With the aid of the Atom and Scorpion codes, we also implement the LHC searches for EW-interacting sparticles and light stops, so as to confront the pMSSM10 parameter space with all relevant SUSY searches. In addition, our analysis includes Higgs mass and rate measurements using the HiggsSignals code, SUSY Higgs exclusion bounds, the measurements B-physics observables, EW precision observables, the CDM density and searches for spin-independent DM scattering. We show that the pMSSM10 is able to provide a SUSY interpretation of (g-2){sub μ}, unlike the CMSSM, NUHM1 and NUHM2. As a result, we find (omitting Higgs rates) that the minimum χ{sup 2}/d.o.f.=20.5/18 in the pMSSM10, corresponding to a χ{sup 2} probability of 30.8 %, to be compared with χ{sup 2}/d.o.f.=32.8/24(31.1/23)(30.3/22) in the CMSSM (NUHM1) (NUHM2). We display 1-dimensional likelihood functions for SUSY masses, and show that they may be significantly lighter in the pMSSM10 than in the CMSSM, NUHM1 and NUHM2. We discuss the discovery potential of future LHC runs, e{sup +}e{sup -} colliders and direct detection experiments.

  8. Complementarity of recent 13 TeV supersymmetry searches and dark matter interplay in the pMSSM

    This paper assesses the regions of sensitivity of current search strategies by the ATLAS collaboration for coloured supersymmetric states, and their relationship with dark matter direct detection experiments. Six 13 TeV ATLAS analyses based on 3.2 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity have been interpreted in the 19-parameter R-parity conserving phenomenological minimal supersymmetric extension to the Standard Model (pMSSM). We show which is the most sensitive of the analyses in the phase spaces pertinent to squark and gluino searches. Striking complementarity is exhibited, particularly the coverage of the 2-6 jets and Multi-b searches. In the leptonic analyses, we find that ATLAS searches have sensitivity to classes of scenarios beyond the benchmark models employed for analysis optimisation. Collider searches for coloured states also probe the structure of the pMSSM dark sector and we compare the sensitivity of recent direct detection results to various scenarios including those with squark coannihilation.

  10. Probing Non-holomorphic MSSM via precision constraints, dark matter and LHC data

    2016-01-01

    In this analysis we explore the phenomenological constraints of models with non-holomorphic soft SUSY breaking terms in a beyond the MSSM scenario having identical particle content. The model referred as NHSSM shows various promising features like the possibility of a strong reduction in electroweak fine-tuning even for a scenario of a heavy higgsino type of LSP, a fact that is unavailable in pMSSM models. The other important aspect is satisfying the muon $g-2$ data even for a small $\\tan\\beta$ via a small value of coupling $A_\\mu'$ associated with the tri-linear non-holomorphic soft term. Thus, a large SUSY contribution to muon $g-2$ is possible even for a significantly large smuon mass $m_{\\tilde {\\mu_1}}$. The Higgs mass radiative corrections are contributed by both the holomorphic and non-holomorphic trilinear soft parameters $A_t$ and $A_t'$, thus diluting the requirement to have a larger $A_t$ to satisfy the Higgs mass data. The model also provides with valid parameter space satisfying the constraint of...

    The signal discovered in the Higgs searches at the LHC can be interpreted as the Higgs boson of the Standard Model as well as the light CP-even Higgs boson of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). In this context the measured mass value, having already reached the level of a precision observable with an experimental accuracy of about 500 MeV, plays an important role. This precision can be improved substantially below the level of ∝50 MeV at the future International Linear Collider (ILC). Within the MSSM the mass of the light CP-even Higgs boson, M{sub h}, can directly be predicted from the other parameters of the model. The accuracy of this prediction should match the one of the experimental measurements. The relatively high experimentally observed value of the mass of about 125.6 GeV has led to many investigations where the supersymmetric (SUSY) partners of the top quark have masses in the multi-TeV range. We review the recent improvements for the prediction for M{sub h} in the MSSM for large scalar top masses. They were obtained by combining the existing fixed-order result, comprising the full one-loop and leading and subleading two-loop corrections, with a resummation of the leading and subleading logarithmic contributions from the scalar top sector to all orders. In this way for the first time a high-precision prediction for the mass of the light CP-even Higgs boson in the MSSM is possible all the way up to the multi-TeV region of the relevant supersymmetric particles. However, substantial further improvements will be needed to reach the ILC precision. The newly obtained corrections to M{sub h} are included into the code FeynHiggs.

    We present a search for the production of neutral Higgs bosons in association with bottom quarks in p$\\bar{p}$ collisions at √s = 1.96 TeV. The cross section for this process is enhanced in many extensions of the Standard Model (SM), such as in its Minimal Supersymmetric extension (MSSM) at large tan β. The data, corresponding to a recorded integrated luminosity of 1 fb-1, were collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. In the absence of a signal a 95% C.L. limit is set on the production cross section times branching ratio, and the results are also interpreted in the MSSM.

  13. Search for Neutral MSSM Higgs bosons decaying to tau pairs in the ATLAS experiment

    CERN Multimedia

    Scutti, F

    2013-01-01

    The Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) is a supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model of particle physics, predicting the existence of five Higgs bosons, two charged (H±) and three neutral (h, H, A). At tree level their properties are determined by two independent parameters: the mass of the CP-odd Higgs boson mA, and the ratio between the vacuum expectation values of the two Higgs doublets predicted tan(beta). In Supersymmetric models, the Higgs boson couplings to down-type fermions like b-quarks or tau leptons is significantly enhanced over a large region of the parameter space. Decays to tau lepton pairs occur 10% of the times and provide a cleaner environment for the search than decays to b-quarks. The tau lepton can decay into either a muon or an electron, plus neutrinos, or in hadrons plus neutrinos. In this poster, the search for the heavy neutral MSSM Higgses (h, H, A) is presented, where the final state is a pair of hadronically decaying tau leptons. This channel provides good sensit...

    Babu, K S; Shafi, Qaisar; Un, Cem Salih

    2014-01-01

    We discuss the sparticle (and Higgs) spectrum in a class of flavor symmetry-based minimal supersymmetric standard models, referred to here as sMSSM. In this framework the SUSY breaking Lagrangian takes the most general form consistent with a grand unified symmetry such as SO(10) and a non-Abelian flavor symmetry acting on the three families with either a 2+1 or a 3 family assignment. Models based on gauged SU(2) and SO(3) flavor symmetry, as well as non-Abelian discrete symmetries such as S_3 and A_4, have been suggested which fall into this category. These models describe supersymmetry breaking in terms of seven phenomenological parameters. The soft supersymmetry breaking masses at M_GUT of all sfermions of the first two families are equal in sMSSM, which differ in general from the corresponding third family mass. In such a framework we show that the muon g-2 anomaly, the observed Higgs boson mass of ~ 125 GeV, and the observed relic neutralino dark matter abundance can be simultaneously accommodated. The re...

  15. MSSM Higgs Boson Searches at the LHC: Benchmark Scenarios after the Discovery of a Higgs-like Particle

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Carena, M.; Heinemeyer, S.; Stål, O.; Wagner, C.E.M.; Weiglein, G.

    2013-09-01

    A Higgs-like particle with a mass of about 125.5 GeV has been discovered at the LHC. Within the current experimental uncertainties, this new state is compatible with both the predictions for the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson and with the Higgs sector in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). We propose new low-energy MSSM benchmark scenarios that, over a wide parameter range, are compatible with the mass and production rates of the observed signal. These scenarios also exhibit interesting phenomenology for the MSSM Higgs sector. We propose a slightly updated version of the well-known mh-max scenario, and a modified scenario (mh-mod), where the light CP-even Higgs boson can be interpreted as the LHC signal in large parts of the MA-tan \\beta\\ plane. Furthermore, we define a light stop scenario that leads to a suppression of the lightest CP-even Higgs gluon fusion rate, and a light stau scenario with an enhanced decay rate of h to \\gamma\\gamma\\ at large tan \\beta. We also suggest a \\tau-phobic Higgs scenario in which the lightest Higgs can have suppressed couplings to down-type fermions. We propose to supplement the specified value of the \\mu\\ parameter in some of these scenarios with additional values of both signs. This has a significant impact on the interpretation of searches for the non SM-like MSSM Higgs bosons. We also discuss the sensitivity of the searches to heavy Higgs decays into light charginos and neutralinos, and to decays of the form H to hh. Finally, in addition to all the other scenarios where the lightest CP-even Higgs is interpreted as the LHC signal, we propose a low-MH scenario, where instead the heavy CP-even Higgs boson corresponds to the new state around 125.5 GeV.

  16. Search for supersymmetry at CDF

    1994-05-01

    We have conducted a search for trilepton events from supersymmetry (SUSY) in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV. In the Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), trilepton events are expected from chargino-neutralino ({tilde {chi}}{sub 1}{sup {plus_minus}}{tilde {chi}}{sub 2}{sup {minus}0}) pair production, with subsequent decay into leptons. In all possible combinations of electron and muon channels in 19 pb{sup {minus}1} data, we observe no events which pass our trilepton selection criteria. Employing the GUT hypothesis within the framework of the MSSM, our preliminary excludes M({tilde {chi}}{sub 1}{sup {plus_minus}}) <46 GeV/c{sup 2} c{sup 2} for {minus}500 < {mu} < {minus}400 GeV, 2.0 < tan({beta}) < 15.0, and M({tilde q}) = 1.2 {times} M({tilde g}).

    2007-06-01

    We explore the possibility of distinguishing the SM-like MSSM Higgs boson from the SM Higgs boson via Higgs boson pair production at future muon collider. We study the behavior of the production cross-section in SM and MSSM with Higgs boson mass for various MSSM parameters tan and A. We observe that at fixed CM energy, in the SM, the total cross-section increases with the increase in Higgs boson mass whereas this trend is reversed for the MSSM. The changes that occur for the MSSM in comparison to the SM predictions are quantified in terms of the relative percentage deviation in cross-section. The observed deviations in cross-section for different choices of Higgs boson masses suggest that the measurements of the cross-section could possibly distinguish the SM-like MSSM Higgs boson from the SM Higgs boson.

  18. Direct Chargino-Neutralino Production at the LHC: Interpreting the Exclusion Limits in the Complex MSSM

    Bharucha, A; von der Pahlen, F

    2013-01-01

    We re-assess the exclusion limits on the parameters describing the supersymmetric (SUSY) electroweak sector of the MSSM obtained from the search for direct chargino-neutralino production at the LHC. We start from published limits obtained in simplified models, where for the case of heavy sleptons the relevant branching ratio, BR(neu2->neu1 Z), is set to one. We show how the decay mode neu2->neu1 h, which cannot be neglected in any realistic model once kinematically allowed, substantially reduces the excluded parameter region. We analyze the dependence of the excluded regions on the phase of the gaugino soft SUSY-breaking mass parameter, M_1, on the mass of the light scalar tau, on tb as well as on the squark and slepton mass scales. Large reductions in the ranges of parameters excluded can be observed in all scenarios. The branching ratios of charginos and neutralinos are evaluated using a full NLO calculation for the complex MSSM. The size of the effects of the NLO calculation on the exclusion bounds is inve...

    2016-01-01

    A multitude of searches have already been performed by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations at the LHC to probe the heavy Higgses of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) through their decay to the Standard Model particles. In this paper, we study the decay of the MSSM heavy Higgses into neutralino and chargino pairs and estimate the maximum possible branching ratios for these `ino' modes being consistent with the present LHC data. After performing a random scan of the relevant electroweakino parameters, we impose the SM 125 GeV Higgs constraints, low energy flavour data as well as current bounds on heavy Higgses from the LHC run-I and run-II data. The present limits on the electroweakino masses and couplings are also considered in our analysis. We choose a few representative benchmark points satisfying all the above-mentioned constraints, and then perform a detailed collider simulation, including fast detector effects, and analyze all the potential SM backgrounds in order to estimate the discovery rea...

The effect of $\\tilde{c}-\\tilde{t}$ mixing and $\\tilde{s}-\\tilde{b}$ mixing is studied taking into account the constraints from the B-meson data. We discuss and compare in detail the decays $h^0 \\to c \\bar{c}$ and $h^0 \\to b \\bar{b}$ within the framework of the perturbative mass insertion technique using the Flavour Expansion Theorem. The deviation of both decay widths from the Standard Model results can be quite large. While in $h^0 \\to c \\bar{c}$ it is almost entirely due to the flavour violating part of the MSSM, in $h^0 \\to b \\bar{b}$ it is mainly due to the flavour conserving part. Nevertheless, $\\Gamma(h^0 \\to b \\bar{b})$ can fluctuate up to $\\sim 7\\%$ due to QFV chargino exchange with large $\\tilde{c}-\\tilde{t}$ mixing. due to QFV chargino exchange with large $\\tilde{c}-\\tilde{t}$ mixing.

    We study the presence of discrete gauge symmetries in D-brane semirealistic compactifications. After establishing the constraints on the transformation behaviour of the chiral matter for the presence of a discrete gauge symmetry we perform a systematic search for discrete gauge symmetries within semi-realistic D-brane realizations, based on four D-brane stacks, of the MSSM and the MSSM with three right-handed neutrinos. The systematic search reveals that Proton hexality, a discrete symmetry which ensures the absence of R-parity violating terms as well as the absence of dangerous dimension 5 proton decay operators, is only rarely realized. Moreover, none of the semi-realistic local D-brane configurations exhibit any family dependent discrete gauge symmetry.

    Recently it has been shown that string instanton effects may give rise to neutrino Majorana masses in certain classes of semi-realistic string compactifications. In this paper we make a systematic search for supersymmetric MSSM-like Type II Gepner orientifold constructions admitting boundary states associated with instantons giving rise to neutrino Majorana masses and other L- and/or B-violating operators. We analyze the zero mode structure of D-brane instantons on general type II orientifold compactifications, and show that only instantons with O(1) symmetry can have just the two zero modes required to contribute to the 4d superpotential. We however discuss how the addition of fluxes and/or possible non-perturbative extensions of the orientifold compactifications would allow also instantons with Sp(2) and U(1) symmetries to generate such superpotentials. In the context of Gepner orientifolds with MSSM-like spectra, we find no models with O(1) instantons with just the required zero modes to generate a neutrin...

    The combined constraints from six early Run 2 ATLAS searches for supersymmetry are interpreted in the phenomenological minimal supersymmetric extension to the Standard Model (pMSSM). Each of the searches was based on proton-proton collision data recorded in 2015 at $\\sqrt{s} =13$ TeV with 3.2 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity. Sensitivity to squarks of the first two generations and gluinos are evaluated using fast detector simulation. Results are presented in the 19-parameter R-parity conserving pMSSM with the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) being the neutralino. Considering 181.8k points that survived Run 1 constraints, 15.7% are excluded at 95% confidence level. Of those satisfying these Run 2 constraints, 0.5% (1.0%) have sub-TeV gluinos (sub-500 GeV squarks), the lightest of which has a mass of 757 GeV (293 GeV) with a 689 GeV (217 GeV) LSP.

    We consider a scenario of Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) with $R$-parity violation, where the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) is the lighter sbottom $(\\tilde b_1)$. We study the production of sbottom pair at the LHC and their subsequent decays through the Baryon number violating $(U D D)$ operators of the $R$-parity violating MSSM. We choose the type of Baryon number violating operator such that the final state contains top pair with two light quarks. We then look for both semi-leptonic and fully hadronic (no leptons) final states. We perform both cut-based and multivariate analysis (MVA) to estimate the signal significance at the 13 TeV run of the LHC. We show that the sbottom mass $\\sim 650 $ GeV (using cut-based analysis) and $\\sim 750 $ GeV (using MVA) may be explored in the semi-leptonic channel assuming $300~{\\rm fb}^{-1}$ luminosity. Through our MVA analysis we show that the fully hadronic final state is not very promising to explore the LSP sbottom scenario due to large irreducibl...

    A search for neutral Higgs bosons decaying into a $\\mathrm{ b \\bar{b}}$ quark pair and produced in association with at least one additional b quark is presented. This signature is sensitive to the Higgs sector of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) with large values of the parameter $\\tan \\beta$. The analysis is based on data from proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV collected with the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb$^{-1}$. The results are combined with a previous analysis based on 7 TeV data. No signal is observed. Stringent upper limits on the cross section times branching fraction are derived for Higgs bosons with masses up to 900 GeV, and the results are interpreted within different MSSM benchmark scenarios, $m_{\\mathrm{h}}^{\\mathrm{max}}$, $m_{\\mathrm{h}}^{\\mathrm{mod+}}$, $m_{\\mathrm{h}}^{\\mathrm{mod-}}$, light-stau and light-stop. Observed 95% confidence level upper limits on $\\tan \\beta$, ranging from 14 to 50, are ob...

    Observations with the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) indicate a possible small photon signal originating from the dwarf galaxy Reticulum II that exceeds the expected background between 2 GeV and 10 GeV. We have investigated two specific scenarios for annihilating WIMP dark matter within the phenomenological Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (pMSSM) framework as a possible source for these photons. We find that the same parameter ranges in pMSSM as reported by an earlier paper to be consistent with the Galactic center excess, is also consistent with the excess observed in Reticulum II, resulting in a J-factor of $\\log_{10}(J(\\alpha_{int}=0.5 deg)) \\simeq (20.3-20.5)^{+0.2}_{-0.3}$. This J-factor is consistent with $\\log_{10}(J(\\alpha_{int}=0.5 deg)) = 19.5^{+1.0}_{-0.6}$ GeV$^2$cm$^{-5}$, which is derived using an optimized spherical Jeans analysis of kinematic data obtained from the Michigan/Magellan Fiber System (M2FS).

This J-factor is consistent with log{sub 10} (J(α{sub int}=0.5{sup ∘}))=19.6{sub −0.7}{sup +1.0} GeV{sup 2}cm{sup −5}, which was derived using an optimized spherical Jeans analysis of kinematic data obtained from the Michigan/Magellan Fiber System (M2FS)

    We consider the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM) with varying amounts of non-universality in the soft supersymmetry-breaking contributions to the Higgs scalar masses. In addition to the constrained MSSM (CMSSM) in which these are universal with the soft supersymmetry-breaking contributions to the squark and slepton masses at the input GUT scale, we consider scenarios in which both the Higgs scalar masses are non-universal by the same amount (NUHM1), and scenarios in which they are independently non-universal (NUHM2). We show how the NUHM1 scenarios generalize the (m_{1/2}, m_0) planes of the CMSSM by allowing either mu or m_A to take different (fixed) values and we also show how the NUHM1 scenarios are embedded as special cases of the more general NUHM2 scenarios. Generalizing from the CMSSM, we find regions of the NUHM1 parameter space that are excluded because the LSP is a selectron. We also find new regions where the neutralino relic density falls within the range preferred by ...

    For the search for additional Higgs bosons in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) as well as for future precision analyses in the Higgs sector precise knowledge of their production properties is mandatory. We evaluate the cross sections for the neutral Higgs boson production at e{sup +}e{sup -} colliders in the MSSM with complex parameters (cMSSM). The evaluation is based on a full one-loop calculation of the production mechanism e{sup +}e{sup -} → h{sub i}Z, h{sub i}γ, h{sub i}h{sub j} (i, j = 1, 2, 3), including soft and hard QED radiation. The dependence of the Higgs boson production cross sections on the relevant cMSSM parameters is analyzed numerically. We find sizable contributions to many cross sections. They are, depending on the production channel, roughly of 10.20 % of the tree-level results, but can go up to 50 % or higher. The full one-loop contributions are important for a future linear e{sup +}e{sup -} collider such as the ILC or CLIC. There are plans to implement the evaluation of the Higgs boson production cross sections into the code FeynHiggs. (orig.)

    2014-02-15

    After the discovery of an SM-like Higgs with m{sub h} = 125 GeV, it is increasingly urgent to explore a solution to the hierarchy problem. In the context of MSSM from gauge-mediated SUSY breaking, the lower bound on the gluino mass suggests that the messenger scale M is probably large if the magnitude of Λ ∝ 100 TeV. In this paper, we study the 5 + 5 model with M ∝ 10{sup 8}-10{sup 12} GeV and Λ ≅ 100 TeV. For moderate Higgs C messenger coupling, a viable model will be shown with moderate fine tuning. In this model, μ ∝ 800 GeV, and B{sub μ} nearly vanishes at the input scale, which can be constructed in a microscopic model. (orig.)

    We present the first analysis of the p19MSSM with neutralino dark matter, in light of 13 TeV LHC data with an integrated luminosity of ~14/fb. We recast twelve experimental analyses performed by the ATLAS collaboration and derive exclusion bounds on the parameter space of the model. We find that 25% of the model points can be excluded at 95% C.L. by a combination of the implemented searches. The spectrum allowed after the 13 TeV results are taken into account presents stops heavier than at least 440 GeV, gluinos heavier than at least 900 GeV, and squarks of the first and second generation heavier than at least 450 GeV.

    We study the problem of moduli stabilisation in explicit heterotic orbifold compactifications, whose spectra contain the MSSM plus some vector-like exotics that can be decoupled. Considering all the bulk moduli, we obtain the 4D low energy effective action for the compactification, which has contributions from various, computable, perturbative and non-perturbative effects. Hidden sector gaugino condensation and string worldsheet instantons result in a combination of racetrack, KKLT and cusp-form contributions to the superpotential, which lift all the bulk moduli directions. We point out the properties observed in our concrete models, which tend to be missed when only ''generic'' features of a model are assumed. We search for interesting vacua and find several de Sitter solutions, but so far, they all turn out to be unstable. (orig.)

    2016-07-01

    The Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) predicts the existence of eight weakly interacting particles which are linear combinations of a higgsino and one wino or one bino. These states are called charginos for the electrically charged particles or neutralinos for the neutral particles. Additionally, if R-parity is conserved every weakino production process with following decay results in at least one stable neutralino, which is a good candidate for a dark matter particle. By studying weakino production processes we can gain information about dark matter and SUSY in general. Furthermore, for the analysis of experimental data precise theoretical calculations of production cross sections are essential. With new constrains on SUSY models, we perform a phenomenological study including higher order QCD corrections of chargino and neutralino production processes. Preliminary results of the production cross-section at √(s) = 14 TeV of pp collisions are presented.

    2017-01-01

    We present the latest results in the search for Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) neutral Higgs bosons decaying to a tau-antitau pair (H/A->TauTau). We consider tau-pair decays in the Leptonic-Hadronic (LepHad) and Hadronic-Hadronic (HadHad) modes. We analyse Run 2 data recorded with the ATLAS detector, produced with proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The background theory of the MSSM will be introduced as an extension to the Standard Model (SM) predicting these additional Higgs bosons with masses heavier than the SM Higgs Boson. The resulting limits on the production rates of the MSSM Higgs boson, which are used to constrain the theory, will be presented.

    We reanalyze the results of the chargino searches at LEP (on the basis of the DELPHI 189 GeV data sample), including the possibility of complex MSSM parameters. We point out the possible differences between the complex- and real-parameter analysis. We check that the regions excluded by 'standard' analyses remain generally robust against the introduction of complex parameters, with the exception of light sneutrino and low tan{beta} scenario, where taking into account the full LEP luminosity or the additional constraints like those given by the Z{sup 0} width or electric dipole moment measurements are necessary.

    It is often argued that low fine tuning in the MSSM necessarily requires a rather light Higgsino. In this note we show that this need not be the case when a more complete set of soft SUSY breaking mass terms are included. In particular an Higgsino mass term, that correlates the $\\mu-$term contribution with the soft SUSY-breaking Higgsino masses, significantly reduces the fine tuning even for Higgsinos in the TeV mass range where its relic abundance means it can make up all the dark matter.

    We calculate the one-loop corrections to the Higgs boson masses within the context of the MSSM with Non-Minimal Flavor Violation in the squark sector. We take into account all the relevant restrictions from BR(B -> X_s gamma), BR(B_s -> mu^+ mu^-) and \\Delta M_{B_s}. We find sizable corrections to the lightest Higgs boson mass that are considerably larger than the expected ILC precision for acceptable values of the mixing parameters deltas. We find delta^{LR}_{ct} and delta^{RL}_{ct} specially relevant, mainly at low tan beta.

  4. An axion-induced SM/MSSM Higgs landscape and the Weak Gravity Conjecture

    Science.gov (United States)

    Herráez, Alvaro; Ibáñez, Luis E.

    2017-02-01

    We construct models in which the SM Higgs mass scans in a landscape. This is achieved by coupling the SM to a monodromy axion field through Minkowski 3-forms. The Higgs mass scans with steps given by δm H 2 ≃ ημf, where μ and f are the axion mass and periodicity respectively, and η measures the coupling of the Higgs to the associated 3-form. The observed Higgs mass scale could then be selected on anthropic grounds. The monodromy axion may have a mass μ in a very wide range depending on the value of η, and the axion periodity f . For η ≃ 1 and f ≃ 1010 GeV , one has 10-3 eV ≲ μ ≲ 103 eV, but ultralight axions with e.g. μ ≃ 10-17 eV are also possible. In a different realization we consider landscape models coupled to the MSSM. In the context of SUSY, 4-forms appear as being part of the auxiliary fields of SUSY multiplets. The scanning in the 4-forms thus translate into a landscape of vevs for the N = 1 auxiliary fields and hence as a landscape for the soft terms. This could provide a rationale for the MSSM fine-tuning suggested by LHC data. In all these models there are 3-forms coupling to membranes which induce transitions between different vacua through bubble nucleation. The Weak Gravity Conjecture (WGC) set limits on the tension of these membranes and implies new physics thresholds well below the Planck scale. More generaly, we argue that in the case of string SUSY vacua in which the Goldstino multiplet contains a monodromy axion the WGC suggests a lower bound on the SUSY breaking scale m 3/2 ≳ M s 2 / M p .

  5. On the phenomenology of charged Higgs bosons in the complex MSSM

    2012-02-16

    In this thesis, we study various decay and production processes of charged Higgs bosons at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the context of a general complex Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) with minimal flavor violation. We investigate the effect of the complex phases of the soft supersymmetry breaking parameters and of the Higgsino mixing parameter, {mu}, on the decay widths and production rates. The CP violating asymmetries induced by those phases are also considered. The calculations are done at the one-loop level. This is nontrivial since there are a large number of Feynman diagrams and various types of singularities (UV divergences, soft and collinear singularities, threshold singularities). We discuss in detail our calculation method and how to handle those divergences. In particular, the topic of one-loop renormalization and neutral-Higgs mixing effects in the complex MSSM for processes involving Higgs bosons are addressed. The higher order corrections to the decay of charged Higgs bosons into aW-boson and the lightest neutral Higgs boson are calculated and shown to be significantly large. The CP asymmetry arising from all complex phases is considered, especially from the top-quark trilinear coupling, A{sub t}, and {mu}, which induce a large contribution to the CP asymmetry. We perform a complete calculation of the next-to-leading order (NLO) electroweak (EW) corrections to the charged Higgs production in association with a W-boson via the bb annihilation channel and a consistent combination with other contributions including the standard and supersymmetric-QCD corrections and the gg fusion, with resummation of the leading radiative corrections to the bottom-Higgs couplings and the neutral Higgs-boson propagators. We observe a strong dependence of the production rates on the phases of A{sub t} and of the gluino-mass parameter M{sub 3} and a large CP asymmetry arising mainly from the gg fusion. The NLO EW corrections to the charged Higgs

    2015-01-01

    The muon anomalous magnetic moment $a_\\mu$ is studied in the infinite $\\tan\\beta$ limit of the MSSM. Since the muon mass arises completely from loop effects, large corrections to $a_\\mu$ are expected in comparison to the usual case with moderately high $\\tan\\beta$. Due to the qualitatively different parameter dependence, the gap between the experimental value and the Standard Model prediction can be filled only in parameter volumes in which a mass hierarchy suppresses the chargino loop in favour of the neutralino contribution. Two such possibilities are found to have either large Higgsino mass or large muon sneutrino mass. Supersymmetric particles even at the TeV scale can lead to the best fit of $a_\\mu$.

    We study the effects of Lepton Flavor Violation (LFV) in the scalar lepton sector of the MSSM on precision observables such as the W-boson mass and the effective weak leptonic mixing angle, and on the Higgs-boson mass predictions. The slepton mass matrices are parameterized in a model-independent way by a complete set of dimensionless parameters which we constrain through LFV decay processes and the precision observables. We find regions where both conditions are similarly constraining. The necessary prerequisites for the calculation have been added to FeynArts and FormCalc and are thus publicly available for further studies. The obtained results are available in FeynHiggs.

    The NLO cross section of the gluon fusion process is matched to parton showers in the MC@NLO approach. We work in the framework of MadGraph5_aMC@NLO and document the inclusion of the full quark-mass dependence in the SM as well as the state-of-the-art squark and gluino effects within the MSSM embodied in the program SusHi. The combination of the two programs is realized by a script which is publicly available and whose usage is detailed. We discuss the input cards and the relevant parameter switches. One of our focuses is on the shower scale which is specifically important for gluon-induced Higgs production, particularly in models with enhanced Higgs-bottom Yukawa coupling.

    In the framework of the Constrained MSSM we derive the most probable ranges of the diffuse gamma radiation flux from the direction of the Galactic center and of the positron flux from the Galactic halo due to neutralino dark matter annihilation. We find that, for a given halo model, the 95% probability range of the integrated gamma-ray flux spans less than two orders of magnitude, with its detectability by GLAST depending primarily on the cuspiness of the halo profile. The positron flux, on the other hand, appears to be too small to be detectable by PAMELA, unless the boost factor is at least of order ten and/or the halo profile is extremely cuspy.

    2008-07-01

    We discuss ILC measurements for a specific MSSM scenario with CP phases, where the lightest neutralino is a good candidate for dark matter, annihilating efficiently through t-channel exchange of light staus. These prospective (CP-even) ILC measurements are then used to fit the underlying model parameters. A collider prediction of the relic density of the neutralino from this fit gives 0.116<Ωh2<0.19 at 95% C.L. CP-odd observables, while being a direct signal of CP violation, do not help in further constraining Ωh2. The interplay with (in)direct detection of dark matter and with measurements of electric dipole moments is also discussed. Finally we comment on collider measurements at higher energies for refining the prediction of Ωh2.

We derive formulas for the transverse polarization of the final particles in terms of the couplings of the effective potential leading to these processes. We then study the dependence of the polarizations of $e$ and $\\gamma$ in the $\\mu \\to e \\gamma$ and $\\mu N \\to e N$ on the parameters of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). We show that combining the information on various observables in the $\\mu \\to e\\gamma$ and $\\mu N\\to e N$ search experiments with the information on the electric dipole moment of the electron can help us to solve the degeneracies in parameter space and to determine the values of certain phases.

    The minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (SM) is a well motivated scenario for physics beyond the SM, which allows a perturbative description of the theory up to scales of the order of the Grand Unification scale, where gauge couplings unify. The Higgs mass parameter is insensitive to the ultraviolet physics and is only sensitive to the scale of soft supersymmetry breaking parameters. Present collider bounds suggest that the characteristic values of these parameters may be significantly larger than the weak scale. Large values of the soft breaking parameters, however, induce large radiative corrections to the Higgs mass parameter and therefore the proper electroweak scale may only be obtained by a fine tuned cancellation between the square of the holomorphic \\mu-parameter and the Higgs supersymmetry breaking square mass parameter. This can only be avoided if there is a correlation between the scalar and gaugino mass parameters, such that the Higgs supersymmetry breaking parameter remains of ...

    A heavy supersymmetric spectrum at the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model is considered and the decoupling from the low energy electroweak scale is analyzed. A formal and partial proof of decoupling of supersymmetric particles in the limit where their masses are larger than the electroweak scale is performed by integrating out all the sparticles to one loop and by evaluating the effective action for the standard electroweak gauge bosons $W^{\\pm}, Z$ and two-point functions of the electroweak gauge bosons and the $S, T$ and $U$ parameters, to be valid in that limit, are also presented. A discussion on how the decoupling takes place in terms of both the physical sparticle masses and the non-physical mass parameters as the $\\mu$-parameter and the soft-breaking parameters is included.

    The minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (SM) is a well motivated scenario for physics beyond the SM, which allows a perturbative description of the theory up to scales of the order of the Grand Unification scale, where gauge couplings unify. The Higgs mass parameter is insensitive to the ultraviolet physics and is only sensitive to the scale of soft supersymmetry breaking parameters. Present collider bounds suggest that the characteristic values of these parameters may be significantly larger than the weak scale. Large values of the soft breaking parameters, however, induce large radiative corrections to the Higgs mass parameter and therefore the proper electroweak scale may only be obtained by a fine tuned cancellation between the square of the holomorphic μ parameter and the Higgs supersymmetry breaking square mass parameter. This can only be avoided if there is a correlation between the scalar and gaugino mass parameters, such that the Higgs supersymmetry breaking parameter remains of the order of the weak scale. The scale at which this happens is dubbed as focus point. In this article, we define the general conditions required for this to happen, for different values of the messenger scale at which supersymmetry breaking is transmitted to the observable sector, and for arbitrary boundary conditions of the sfermion, gaugino, and Higgs mass parameters. Specific supersymmetry breaking scenarios in which these correlations may occur are also discussed.

    The data collected by ALEPH at LEP at centre-of-mass energies ranging from 181 to 184 GeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 57 pb-1, are analysed to search for pair-produced neutral Higgs bosons h and A, in the b bbar b bbar and tau+ tau- b bbar final states. Two events are found in the data with 2.5 expected from standard model processes. When combined with the lower energy data collected by ALEPH and with earlier reported searches for associated hZ production, these analyses are interpreted in the context of the minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model (MSSM). For standard choices of MSSM parameter sets, this combination results in 95% C.L. exclusion lower limits of 72.2 and 76.1 GeV/c2 for mh and mA, irrespective of tan(beta). A scan of the MSSM parameter space is performed in which the model parameters are varied over wide ranges. For low values of \\tanb, {\\it i.e.}, for 1 < tan(beta) < ~2, the limit on mh of ~88 GeV/c2 is shown to be robust, being satisfied in essentially ...

    This dissertation describes a search for the associated production of the supersymmetric particles, the chargino and the neutralino, through their R-parity conserving decays to three leptons and missing energy. This search is carried out using the data collected at the CDF experiment at the Tevatron √s = 1.96 TeV p$\\bar{p}$ collider at Fermilab. The results are obtained by combining five independent channels with varying signal to background ratio. Overall, a total of 6.4 ± 1.1 background events from standard model processes and 11.4 ± 1.1 signal events for a particular choice of mSUGRA model parameters are expected. The observation of 7 events in data is consistent with the standard model background expectation, and the mSUGRA model is constrained. Limits are set on the cross section of Chargino-Neutralino pair production, and a limit on the mass of the chargino is extracted. A method of obtaining model-independent results is also discussed.

    This thesis describes the CDF II 2 fb{sup -1} search for supersymmetric chargino-neutralino production in {radical}s = 1.96TeV p{bar p} collisions using the 'golden' channel with three leptons and missing transverse energy in the final state and the application of the results to obtain a limit on the parameter space of the supersymmetric model mSUGRA. Electrons and muons are reconstructed directly; isolated tracks are used as a proxy for {tau} leptons. Several analysis channels with different signal purity are defined and evaluated independently. Based on 7 observed and 6.4 expected background events this analysis was able set the first direct limits on chargino-neutralino production in mSUGRA since LEP. Based on mSUGRA phenomenology the sensitivity of this analysis is investigated; the mSUGRA parameter space is split into different phenomenology classes. Experimental results from previous searches in this channel by CDF and D0 have been presented for specific parameter values of a given model. A more model-independent approach is proposed and, by splitting the results of this analysis into channels based on {tau} content, the results of the analysis are generalized.

  20. Search for the SM and MSSM Higgs boson in the ttH, H-->bb channel

    1998-01-01

    A detailes study of the associated Standard Model Higgs boson production ttH with H-->bb is presented for the SM and MSSM scenarios. For the Higgs boson masses from 80 to 120 GeV and an integrated luminosity of 3 10^4 pb^-1 a clear evidence for an excess of events with four b-tagged jets over the background from W+jets and tt production should be observable. However, a clean reconstruc tion of the H-->bb mass peak will be difficult because of the combinatorial bgd from the signal itself. This problem can be to large extent overcome if both top-quark decays are reconstructed in addition to the reconstruction of the H-->bb mass peak. In the MSSM scenario, the low tanb region (up to tanb ~ 6) for an integrated luminosity of 3 10^4 pb^-1 and most of the (mA, tanb) parame ter space for an integrated luminosity of 10^5 pb^-1 would be accesible with this channel. Excellent b-tagging capability and good efficiency for jet recons truction are however necessary to explore this channel to its full potential.

    For the case of the MSSM and the most general form of the NMSSM (GNMSSM) we determine the reduction in the fine tuning that follows from allowing gaugino masses to be non-degenerate at the unification scale, taking account of the LHC8 bounds on SUSY masses, the Higgs mass bound, gauge coupling unification and the requirement of an acceptable dark matter density. We show that low-fine tuned points fall in the region of gaugino mass ratios predicted by specific unified and string models. For the case of the MSSM the minimum fine tuning is still large, approximately 1:60 allowing for a 3 GeV uncertainty in the Higgs mass (1:500 for the central value), but for the GNMSSM it is below 1:20. We find that the spectrum of SUSY states corresponding to the low-fine tuned points in the GNMSSM is often compressed, weakening the LHC bounds on coloured states. The prospect for testing the remaining low-fine-tuned regions at LHC14 is discussed.

    This paper presents the final interpretation of the results from DELPHI on the searches for Higgs bosons in the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM). A few representative scenarios are considered, that include CP conservation and explicit CP violation in the Higgs sector. The experimental results encompass the searches for neutral Higgs bosons at LEP1 and LEP2 in final states as expected in the MSSM, as well as LEP2 searches for charged Higgs bosons and for neutral Higgs bosons decaying into hadrons independent of the quark flavour. The data reveal no significant excess with respect to background expectations. The results are translated into excluded regions of the parameter space in the various scenarios. In the CP-conserving case, these lead to limits on the masses of the lightest scalar and pseudoscalar Higgs bosons, h and A, and on tan(beta). The dependence of these limits on the top quark mass is discussed. Allowing for CP violation reduces the experimental sensitivity to Higgs b...

  3. Search for Neutral MSSM Higgs bosons in $sqrt{s} = 7$ TeV pp collisions at ATLAS

    2012-01-01

    A search for the neutral Higgs bosons of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) is reported. The analysis is based on a sample of proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The data were recorded in 2011 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 4.7 − 4.8 $fb^{−1}$. Higgs boson decays into oppositely-charged muon or $\\tau$ lepton pairs are considered for final states requiring either the presence or absence of $b$ jets. No statistically significant excess over the expected background is observed and exclusion limits at the 95% confidence level are derived for the production cross section of a generic Higgs boson, $\\phi$, as a function of the Higgs boson mass and for h/A/H production in the MSSM as a function of the parameters $m_{A}$ and $\\tan \\beta$ in the m$_{max}^{h}$ scenario with $\\mu > 0$.

    2011-01-01

    We study the light $CP$-even neutral Higgs boson production in association with an electron and a jet at the possible CERN large hadron-electron collider (LHeC) within the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM). We investigate the possible supersymmetric effects on this process, and compare our SM numerical results with those in previous work. We present the leading order (LO) and QCD next-to-leading order (NLO) corrected total cross sections and the distributions of the transverse momenta of final electron, the light neutral Higgs boson, and jet in the MSSM. Our results show that the scale dependence of the LO cross section is obviously reduced by the QCD NLO corrections. The K-factor of the QCD correction to the total cross section at the LHeC varies from $0.893$ to $1.048$ when the factorization/renormalization scale $\\mu$ goes up from $0.2 m_Z$ to $3.8 m_Z$ in our chosen parameter space.

    2013-02-15

    A search for neutral MSSM Higgs bosons decaying into a {tau} lepton pair, A/H/h{yields}{tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -}, is presented. The search is based on proton-proton collision events recorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider at a center-of-mass energy {radical}(s)=7 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.1 fb{sup -1}. One of the {tau} leptons is reconstructed in a leptonic, the other in a hadronic final state. The contributions of the main background processes have been estimated using data driven methods. For the Z/{gamma}{sup *}{yields}{tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -} background an embedding method has been used, that replaces the muons in reconstructed Z/{gamma}{sup *}{yields}{mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -} events with simulated {tau} leptons. The event yield of the W+jets background has been studied in a sideband control region and the simulation has been normalized to agree with the sideband data. The contribution from QCD multi-jet processes has been estimated from three data control regions. Systematic uncertainties due to these background estimates have been identified and studied as well as systematic uncertainties affecting the simulated signal and background event samples. The dominating systematic uncertainty has been found to be due to the uncertainty on the energy scales of jets and hadronically decaying {tau} leptons. In total 4065 data events have been selected and the number of expected events from Standard Model background processes has been estimated to be 4151{+-}66{+-}796, where the first error is statistical and the second error is systematic. As no excess over the Standard Model expectation is found, exclusion limits at the 95% confidence level are set on the production cross section of a generic Higgs boson, {phi}, in dependence of its mass and on the production of the neutral MSSM Higgs bosons A/H/h as a function of the parameters tan {beta} and m{sub A} in the m{sup max}{sub h} scenario. These exclusion limits represent

  6. 125 GeV Higgs boson mass and muon g-2 in 5D MSSM

    Okada, Nobuchika

    2016-01-01

    In the MSSM, the tension between the observed Higgs boson mass and the experimental result of the muon $g-2$ measurement requires a large mass splitting between stops and smuons/charginos/neutralinos. We consider a 5-dimensional (5D) framework of the MSSM with the Randall-Sundrum warped background metric, and show that such a mass hierarchy is naturally achieved in terms of geometry. In our setup, the supersymmetry is broken at the ultraviolet (UV) brane, while all the MSSM multiplets reside in the 5D bulk. An appropriate choice of the bulk mass parameters for the MSSM matter multiplets can naturally realize the sparticle mass hierarchy desired to resolve the tension. Gravitino is localized at the UV brane and hence becomes very heavy, while the gauginos spreading over the bulk acquire their masses suppressed by the 5th dimensional volume. As a result, the LSP neutralino is a candidate for the dark matter as usual in the MSSM. In addition to reproducing the SM-like Higgs boson mass of around 125 GeV and the m...

    The cross-section times branching ratio of the Higgs boson decaying to τ+τ- final state in the Standard Model (SM) is too small to play any role in the SM Higgs boson searches. This, however, is different in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), which predicts two Higgs doublets leading to five Higgs bosons: a pair of charged Higgs boson (H±); two neutral CP-even Higgs bosons (h,H) and a CP-odd Higgs boson (A). A search for the production of neutral Higgs bosons decaying into τ+τ- final states in p{bar p} collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of √s = 1.96 TeV is presented in this thesis. One of the two τ leptons is required to decay into a muon while the other decays hadronically. The integrated luminosity is L = 1.0-5.36 fb -1, collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider from 2002 to 2009 in the Run II.

    2013-01-01

    We investigate the impact of direct LHC SUSY searches on the parameter space of three natural scenarios in the MSSM. In the first case the spectrum consists of light stops, sbottoms, and Higgsino-like neutralinos, while the other particles are assumed to be out of the experimental reach. In the second case we consider an additional light gluino. Finally we study a more complex spectrum comprising also light sleptons, wino-like chargino, and a bino-like neutralino. We simulate in detail three LHC searches: stop production at ATLAS with 20.7/fb, CMS 11.7/fb inclusive search for squarks and gluinos with the variable \\alphaT, and CMS 9.2/fb electroweak production with 3 leptons in the final state. For each point in our scans we calculate the exclusion likelihood due to the individual searches and to their statistical combination. We calculate the fine-tuning measure of the points allowed by the LHC and the implications for the Higgs mass and other phenomenological observables: the relic density, BR(Bs --> \\mu^+\\m...

    Dedes, A; Rosiek, J; Suxho, K; Tamvakis, K

    2014-01-01

    In full one-loop generality and in next-to-leading order in QCD, we study rare top to Higgs boson flavour changing decay processes $t\\to q h$ with $q=u,c$ quarks, in the general MSSM with R-parity conservation. Our primary goal is to search for enhanced effects on $Br(t\\to q h)$ that could be visible at current and high luminosity LHC running. To this end, we perform an analytical expansion of the amplitude in terms of flavour changing squark mass insertions that treats both cases of hierarchical and degenerate squark masses in a unified way. We identify two enhanced effects allowed by various constraints: one from holomorphic trilinear soft SUSY breaking terms and/or right handed up squark mass insertions and another from non-holomorphic trilinear soft SUSY breaking terms and light Higgs boson masses. Interestingly, even with $\\mathcal{O}(1)$ flavour violating effects in the, presently unconstrained, up-squark sector, SUSY effects on $Br(t\\to q h)$ come out to be unobservable at LHC mainly due to leading ord...

  10. Diphoton Resonances in U(1)_{B-L} Extension of MSSM

    CERN Document Server

    Lazarides, G

    2016-01-01

    Inspired by the 750 GeV diphoton state recently reported by ATLAS and CMS, we propose a U(1)_{B-L} extension of the MSSM which predicts the existence of four spin zero resonance states that are degenerate in mass in the supersymmetric limit. Vector-like fields, a gauge singlet field, as well as the MSSM Higgsinos are prevented from acquiring arbitrary large masses by a U(1) R-symmetry. Indeed, these masses can be considerably lighter than the Z' gauge boson mass. Depending on kinematics the resonance states could decay into right handed neutrinos and sneutrinos, and/or MSSM Higgs fields and Higgsinos with total decay widths in the multi-GeV range.

    The generalization of the MSSM to the case of four chiral fermion generations (4GMSSM) can lead to significant changes in the phenomenology of the otherwise familiar Higgs sector. In most of the 3GMSSM parameter space, the lighter CP-even $h$ is $\\sim 115-125$ GeV and mostly Standard Model-like while $H,A,H^\\pm$ are all relatively heavy. Furthermore, the ratio of Higgs vevs, $\\tan \\beta$, is relatively unconstrained. In contrast to this, in the 4GMSSM, heavy fourth generation fermion loops drive the masses of $h,H,H^\\pm$ to large values while the CP-odd boson, $A$, can remain relatively light and $\\tan \\beta$ is restricted to the range $1/2 \\lsim \\tan \\beta \\lsim 2$ due to perturbativity requirements on Yukawa couplings. We explore this scenario in some detail, concentrating on the collider signatures of the light CP-odd Higgs at both the Tevatron and LHC. We find that while $gg \\to A$ may lead to a potential signal in the $\\tau^+\\tau^-$ channel at the LHC, $A$ may first be observed in the $\\gamma \\gamma$ cha...

  12. Implications of a high mass light MSSM Higgs scalar for SUSY searches at the LHC

    Baer, Howard; Huang, Peisi; Mustafayev, Azar

    2011-01-01

    The Atlas and CMS collaborations have both reported an excess of events in the WW\\star \\rightarrow \\ell+\\ell- + ETmiss search channel, which could be the first evidence for the Higgs boson. In the context of the MSSM, the lightest SUSY Higgs scalar h is expected to occur with mass mh = 135 GeV, depending on the range of SUSY parameters scanned over. Since the h \\rightarrow WW\\star branching fraction falls swiftly with decreasing mh, a signal in the WW\\star channel would favor an h at the high end of its predicted mass range. We scan over general GUT scale SUSY model parameters to find those which give rise to mh > 130 GeV. A value of m0 \\sim 10 - 20 TeV is favored, with A0 \\sim \\pm2m0, while the lower range of m1/2 < 1 TeV is also slightly favored. This gives rise to an "effective SUSY" type of sparticle mass spectrum. For low m1/2, gluino pair production followed by three-body gluino decay to top quarks may ultimately be accesible to LHC searches, while for higher m1/2 values, the SUSY spectra would likel...

  13. Alignment without Decoupling: the Portal to Light Dark Matter in the MSSM

    Profumo, Stefano

    2016-01-01

    We study light, thermal neutralino dark matter in the sub-GeV to 65 GeV mass range in the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM). We consider realizations of the limit of alignment without decoupling in the Higgs sector where the heavier CP-even Higgs impersonates the observed Higgs state at 125 GeV, while the lighter CP-even Higgs is the mediator of dark matter annihilation. We single out three distinct and novel possibilities for light dark matter: (i) a neutralino with mass around half the light Higgs mass, in the sub-GeV to 30 GeV mass range; (ii) a neutralino with a mass around half the pseudoscalar Higgs boson mass, in our examples around 60 to 65 GeV; (iii) a very light neutralino with mass around the light Higgs mass, pair-annihilating to Higgs pairs. We discuss the implications of all these possibilities for indirect and direct dark matter detection experiments, and we demonstrate that all scenarios will be tested by next generation direct detection experiments. We also emphasi...

  14. An MSSM Extension with a Mirror Fourth Generation, Neutrino Magnetic Moments and LHC Signatures

    CERN Document Server

    Ibrahim, Tarek

    2008-01-01

    Recent analyses have shown that a sequential fourth generation can be consistent with precision electroweak data. We consider the possibility that the new generation could be a mirror generation with $V+A$ rather than $V-A$ interactions. Specifically we consider an extension of the minimal supersymmetric standard model with a light mirror generation (mirMSSM) . Implications of this extension are explored. One consequence is an enhancement of the tau neutrino magnetic moment by several orders of magnitude consistent with the current limits on the magnetic moment of the tau. The masses of the mirror generation arise due to electroweak symmetry breaking, and if a mirror generation exists its mass spectrum must lye below a TeV, and thus should be discovered at the LHC. Mirror particles and mirror sparticles produce many characteristic signatures which should be detectable at the LHC. Heavy higgs boson decays into mirror particles and an analysis of the forward-backward asymmetries can distinguish a mirror generat...

  15. Yukawa coupling thresholds application to the MSSM and the minimal supersymmetric SU(5) GUT

    CERN Document Server

    Wright, B D

    1994-01-01

    We consider a particular class of threshold corrections to Yukawa couplings and mass relations in the MSSM and supersymmetric grand unified models. We give a complete treatment of Yukawa coupling thresholds at the unification scale \\Mx and the effective supersymmetry scale \\Ms and apply them to corrections to the tree-level prediction y.sub(b)(\\Mx) = y.sub(.tau.)(\\Mx) in minimal supersymmetric SU(5). We apply both gauge and Yukawa coupling thresholds to gauge unification and the above Yukawa unification condition to find predictions for the top quark mass, M_t, the superheavy vector boson mass \\Mv and the colored Higgs triplet mass \\Mhs. We discuss the dependencies of \\Mx and \\Mhs on .alpha.sub(s)(M.sub(Z)), M.sub(t) and the sparticle spectrum as well as those of M.sub(t) on tan.beta., .alpha.sub(s)(M.sub(Z)) and the bottom quark mass, M.sub(b). The effect of the Yukawa coupling thresholds on M.sub(t) are given for representative sparticle spectra. We describe the quantitative differences between these effect...

    1996-01-01

    We have searched for chargino-neutralino production (\\chichi) in 1.8 TeV \\ppb\\sp collisions, followed by their leptonic decays \\chione\\dk\\chizero\\lnu\\psp and \\chitwo\\dk\\chizero\\lplm. These trilepton events are expected within a framework of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). In a 19.1 pb^{-1} data sample collected with the Collider Detector at Fermilab, no trilepton events were observed. Upper limits on \\sigma(\\ppb\\dk\\chichi)\\cdot BR(\\chichi\\dk 3 \\ell + X) were obtained for various MSSM parameter space regions, yielding new 95\\% confidence level lower limits for the neutralino (\\chitwo) mass which extended as high as 49 \\mgev.

  17. Constraining the Natural MSSM through tunneling to color-breaking vacua at zero and non-zero temperature

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    J.E. Camargo-Molina

    2014-10-01

    Full Text Available We re-evaluate the constraints on the parameter space of the minimal supersymmetric standard model from tunneling to charge- and/or color-breaking minima, taking into account thermal corrections. We pay particular attention to the region known as the Natural MSSM, where the masses of the scalar partners of the top quarks are within an order of magnitude or so of the electroweak scale. These constraints arise from the interaction between these scalar tops and the Higgs fields, which allows the possibility of parameter points having deep charge- and color-breaking true vacua. In addition to requiring that our electroweak-symmetry-breaking, yet QCD- and electromagnetism-preserving vacuum has a sufficiently long lifetime at zero temperature, also demanding stability against thermal tunneling further restricts the allowed parameter space.

  18. Higgs boson discovery versus sparticles prediction: Impact on the pMSSM's posterior samples from a Bayesian global fit

    CERN Document Server

    AbdusSalam, Shehu S

    2012-01-01

    The signal strength of the recently discovered Higgs boson-like particle in the diphoton channel seemingly constrains physics beyond the standard model to a severe degree. However, the reported signal strength is prone to possible underestimation of uncertainties. We propose a discriminant that is relatively free of many of the theoretical uncertainties, and use this to gauge the impact on the phenomenological MSSM. A Bayesian global fit to all the pre-LHC data results in posterior distributions for the masses that are neither very restrictive, nor sufficiently prior-independent (except for the Higgs and stop masses). The imposition of the Higgs data, on the other hand, yields interesting and nearly prior-independent constraints. In particular, the existence of some light superpartners is favoured.

  19. Matching coefficients for alpha_s and m_b to O(alpha_s^2) in the MSSM

    CERN Document Server

    Bauer, A; Salomon, J

    2009-01-01

    We compute the exact two-loop matching coefficients for the strong coupling constant alpha_s and the bottom-quark mass m_b within the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), taking into account O(alpha_s^2) contributions from Supersymmetric Quantum Chromodynamics (SQCD). We find that the explicit mass pattern of the supersymmetric particles has a significant impact on the predictions of alpha_s and m_b at high energies. Further on, the three-loop corrections exceed the uncertainty due to the current experimental accuracy. In case of the the running bottom-quark mass, they can reach in the large tan(beta) regime up to 30% from the tree-level value.

    We present the results of our large scale 4-dimensional (4d) lattice simulations for the MSSM electroweak phase transition (EWPT). We carried out infinite volume and continuum limit extrapolations and found a transition whose strength agrees well with perturbation theory. We determined the properties of the bubble wall that are important for a successful baryogenesis.

    We extend the formalism developed earlier (A. C. Fowler and G. Weiglein, 2010) for the renormalisation of the chargino-neutralino sector to the most general case of the MSSM with complex parameters. We show that products of imaginary parts arising from MSSM parameters and from absorptive parts of loop integrals can already contribute to predictions for physical observables at the one-loop level, and demonstrate that the consistent treatment of such contributions gives rise to non-trivial structure, either in the field renormalisation constants or the corrections associated with the external legs of the considered diagrams. We furthermore show that the phases of the parameters in the chargino-neutralino sector do not need to be renormalised at the one-loop level, and demonstrate that the appropriate choice for the mass parameters used as input for the on-shell conditions depends both on the process and the region of MSSM parameter space under consideration. As an application, we compute the complete one-loop results in the MSSM with complex parameters for the process h{sub a}{yields}{chi}{sup +}{sub i}{chi}{sup -}{sub j} (Higgs-propagator corrections have been incorporated up to the two-loop level), which may be of interest for SUSY Higgs searches at the LHC, and for chargino pair-production at an e{sup +}e{sup -} Linear Collider, e{sup +}e{sup -}{yields}{chi}{sup +}{sub i}{chi}{sup -}{sub j}. We investigate the dependence of the theoretical predictions on the phases of the MSSM parameters, analysing in particular the numerical relevance of the absorptive parts of loop integrals.

  3. Determination of MSSM Parameters from LHC and ILCObservables in a Global Fit

    We present the results of a realistic global fit of the Lagrangian parameters of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model assuming universality for the first and second generation and real parameters. No assumptions on the SUSY breaking mechanism are made. The fit is performed using the precision of future mass measurements of superpartners at the LHC and mass and polarized topological cross-section measurements at the ILC. Higher order radiative corrections are accounted for wherever possible to date. Results are obtained for a modified SPS1a MSSM benchmark scenario but they were checked not to depend critically on this assumption. Exploiting a simulated annealing algorithm, a stable result is obtained without any a priori assumptions on the values of the fit parameters. Most of the Lagrangian parameters can be extracted at the percent level or better if theoretical uncertainties are neglected. Neither LHC nor ILC measurements alone will be sufficient to obtain a stable result. The effects of theoretical uncertainties arising from unknown higher-order corrections and parametric uncertainties are examined qualitatively. They appear to be relevant and the result motivates further precision calculations. The obtained parameters at the electroweak scale are used for a fit of the parameters at high energy scales within the bottom-up approach. In this way regularities at these scales are explored and the underlying model can be determined with hardly any theoretical bias. Fits of high-scale parameters to combined LHC+ILC measurements within the mSUGRA framework reveal that even tiny distortions in the low-energy mass spectrum already lead to unacceptable {chi}{sup 2} values. This does not hold for ''LHC only'' inputs.

    We make a complete analysis of radiative symmetry breaking in the MSSM and its SU(5) extensions including low- and high-energy threshold effects in the framework of the two-loop renormalization group. In particular, we consider {ital minimal} SU(5), the {ital missing-doublet} SU(5), a {ital Peccei-Quinn}-invariant version of SU(5), as well as a version with light adjoint remnants. We derive permitted ranges for the parameters of these models in relation to predicted {alpha}{sub s} and M{sub G} values within the present experimental accuracy. The parameter regions allowed under the constraints of radiative symmetry breaking, perturbativity, and proton stability, include the experimentally designated domain for {alpha}{sub s}. In the case of the {ital minimal} SU(5), the values of {alpha}{sub s} obtained are somewhat large in comparison with the experimental average. The {ital missing-doublet} SU(5), generally, predicts smaller values of {alpha}{sub s}. In both versions of the {ital missing doublet}, the high-energy threshold effects on {alpha}{sub s} operate in the opposite direction than that in the case of the minimal model, leading to small values. In the case of the {ital Peccei-Quinn} version, however, the presence of an extra intermediate scale allows us to achieve an excellent agreement with the experimental {alpha}{sub s} values. Finally, the last considered version, with light remnants, exhibits unification of couplings at string scale at the expense, however, of rather large {alpha}{sub s} values. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}

    A search for neutral Higgs bosons predicted in the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) for $\\mu^{+} \\mu^{-}$ decay channels is presented. The analysis uses data collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC in proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 5.1 and 19.3 fb$^{-1}$, respectively. The search is sensitive to Higgs bosons produced through the gluon fusion process and in association with a bb quark pair. No statistically significant excess is observed in the $\\mu^{+} \\mu^{-}$ mass spectrum. Results are interpreted in the framework of several benchmark scenarios, and the data are used to set an upper limit on the MSSM parameter $ \\tan{ \\beta} $ as a function of the mass of the pseudoscalar A boson in the range from 115 to 300 GeV. Model independent upper limits are given for the product of the cross section and branching fraction for gluon fusion and b quark associated production. They are the most stringent limits obtained to dat...

  7. Search for Neutral MSSM Higgs Bosons Decaying to Pairs of Tau Leptons at Center of Mass Energy = 7 TeV

    Friis, Evan Klose

    2011-01-01

    This thesis describes a search for the Higgs boson, a new particle predicted by a theory called the minimal supersymmetric extension to the standard model (MSSM). The standard model of particle physics, the MSSM, and Higgs boson phenomenology are introduced briefly. The search presented in this thesis uses a single final state configuration, in which the Higgs boson decays to two tau leptons, with one tau decaying to a muon and neutrinos, and the other decaying to pions and a single neutrino. Two new methods are introduced in this analysis, the Tau Neural Classifier tau identification algorithm, and the Secondary Vertex fit tau pair mass reconstruction method. Both methods are discussed in detail. The analysis uses the 2010 dataset from the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment, which contains 36 pb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity at a center of mass energy of 7 TeV. In total, 573 events are selected in the analysis. We fit the observed tau pair mass spectrum and measure the composition of the events. The re...

  8. Heavy Bino Dark Matter and Collider Signals in the MSSM with Vector-like 4th-Generation Particles

    2016-01-01

    MSSM4G models, in which the minimal supersymmetric standard model is extended to include vector-like copies of standard model particles, are promising possibilities for weak-scale supersymmetry. In particular, two models, called QUE and QDEE, realize the major virtues of supersymmetry (naturalness consistent with the 125 GeV Higgs boson, gauge coupling unification, and thermal relic neutralino dark matter) without the need for fine-tuned relations between particle masses. We determine the implications of these models for dark matter and collider searches. The QUE and QDEE models revive the possibility of heavy Bino dark matter with mass in the range 300-700 GeV, which is not usually considered. Dark matter direct detection cross sections are typically below current limits, but are naturally expected above the neutrino floor and may be seen at next-generation experiments. Indirect detection prospects are bright at the Cherenkov Telescope Array, provided the 4th-generation leptons have mass above 350 GeV or dec...

    We take a step towards a complete NLO-QCD determination of the production of a pair of Higgs scalars in the MSSM. Exploiting a low-energy theorem that connects the Higgs-gluon interactions to the derivatives of the gluon self-energy, we obtain analytic results for the one- and two-loop squark contributions to Higgs pair production in the limit of vanishing external momenta. We find that the two-loop squark contributions can have non-negligible effects in MSSM scenarios with stop masses below the TeV scale. We also show how our results can be adapted to the case of Higgs pair production in the NMSSM.

  10. Precise Prediction of the Dark Matter Relic Density within the MSSM

    Harz, J.; Herrmann, B.; Klasen, M.; Kovarik, K.; Steppeler, P.

    With the latest Planck results the dark matter relic density is determined to an unprecedented precision. In order to reduce current theoretical uncertainties in the dark matter relic density prediction, we have calculated next-to-leading order SUSY-QCD corrections to neutralino (co)annihilation processes including Coulomb enhancement effects. We demonstrate that these corrections can have significant impact on the cosmologically favoured MSSM parameter space and are thus of general interest for parameter studies and global fits.

    The present status of the calculation of radiative corrections to chargino and neutralino pair production processes in the MSSM is summarized. The main focus will be on the use of the on-shell renormalization scheme for charginos and neutralinos in conjunction with DR-bar parameters, such as those of the SPA conventions. Associated soft and hard bremsstrahlung and an appropriate separation of QED-like parts in the full one-loop contributions will be addressed.

  13. Higgs self-coupling in the MSSM and NMSSM after the LHC Run 1

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available Measuring the Higgs self-coupling is one of the crucial physics goals at the LHC Run-2 and other future colliders. In this work, we attempt to figure out the size of SUSY effects on the trilinear self-coupling of the 125 GeV Higgs boson in the MSSM and NMSSM after the LHC Run-1. Taking account of current experimental constraints, such as the Higgs data, flavor constraints, electroweak precision observables and dark matter detections, we obtain the observations: (1 In the MSSM, the ratio λ3hMSSM/λ3hSM has been tightly constrained by the LHC data, which can be only slightly smaller than 1 and minimally reach 97%; (2 In the NMSSM with λ0.7, a large enhancement or reduction −1.1<λ3h1NMSSM/λ3h1SM<2 can occur, which is accompanied by a sizable change of h1τ+τ− coupling. The future colliders, such as the HL-LHC and ILC, will have the capacity to test these large deviations in the NMSSM.

    We address the computation of \\Gamma_Z and of the intriguing quantity R_b in the MSSM including full treatment of the Higgs sector. For a pseudoscalar Higgs mass m_{A^0}>70\\,GeV and CDF limits on m_t, the bounds on R_b at 1\\sigma level leave no room to the MSSM to solve the `R_b crisis' for any combination of the parameters, not even admitting the possibility of a light chargino and a light stop of O(50) GeV; however, for m_t not restricted by CDF, a `tangential' solution exists in the window 2m_t/m_b. Our general conclusion is that, if there is a `R_b crisis' at all, its solution within the MSSM has to do more with the peculiar structure of the SUSY Higgs sector rather than with the spectrum of genuine supersymmetric particles. In view of the range predicted for m_{A^0}, LEP 200 should be able to definitely settle down this question.

    We analyse the low energy predictions of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) arising from a GUT scale Pati-Salam gauge group further constrained by an $A_4 \\times Z_5$ family symmetry, resulting in four soft scalar masses at the GUT scale: one left-handed soft mass $m_0$ and three right-handed soft masses $m_1,m_2,m_3$, one for each generation. We demonstrate that this model, which was initially developed to describe the neutrino sector, can explain collider and non-collider measurements such as the dark matter relic density, the Higgs boson mass and, in particular, the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon $(g-2)_\\mu$. Since about two decades, $(g-2)_\\mu$ suffers a puzzling about 3$\\,\\sigma$ excess of the experimentally measured value over the theoretical prediction, which our model is able to fully resolve. As the consequence of this resolution, our model predicts specific regions of the parameter space with the specific properties including light smuons and neutralinos, which could also potent...

We demonstrate that this model, which was initially developed to describe the neutrino sector, can explain collider and non-collider measurements such as the dark matter relic density, the Higgs boson mass and, in particular, the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon ( g - 2) μ . Since about two decades, ( g - 2) μ suffers a puzzling about 3 σ excessoftheexperimentallymeasuredvalueoverthetheoreticalprediction,whichour model is able to fully resolve. As the consequence of this resolution, our model predicts specific regions of the parameter space with the specific properties including light smuons and neutralinos, which could also potentially explain di-lepton excesses observed by CMS and ATLAS.

    2012-01-01

    We evaluate two-body decay modes of neutralinos in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model with complex parameters (cMSSM). Assuming heavy scalar quarks we take into account all two-body decay channels involving charginos, neutralinos, (scalar) leptons, Higgs bosons and Standard Model gauge bosons. The evaluation of the decay widths is based on a full one-loop calculation including hard and soft QED radiation. Of particular phenomenological interest are decays involving the Lightest Supersymmetric Particle (LSP), i.e. the lightest neutralino, or a neutral or charged Higgs boson. For the chargino/neutralino sector we employ two different renormalization schemes, which differ in the treatment of the complex phases. In the numerical analysis we concentrate on the decay of the heaviest neutralino and show the results in the two different schemes. The higher-order corrections of the heaviest neutralino decay widths involving the LSP can easily reach a level of about 10-15%, while the corrections to the decays to...

    The process e+e- --> h A is used to search for the Higgs bosons of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), in the bbbb and tautaubb final states. The search is performed in the data collected by the ALEPH experiment at LEP, at centre-of-mass energies between 130 and 172 GeV and with a total luminosity of 27.2 pb-1. No candidate events are found in either of the final states, in agreement with the expected background of 0.91 events from all Standard Model processes. Combined with searches for e+e- --> hZ, this results in a 95% C.L. lower limit on the masses of both h and A of 62.5 GeV/c2, for tan(beta) > 1.

  19. Search for neutral MSSM Higgs boson H/A decaying to pair of tau leptons with ATLAS detector in Run II

    2016-01-01

    This poster presents the search of a heavy neutral Higgs boson of the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM) decaying to a pair of tau leptons using proton-proton collisions at vs = 13 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.2ifb recorded by the ATLAS detector for the Run II of the LHC. The analysis focuses on Higgs bosons produced in the mass range between 200 GeV and 1200 GeV by gluon-gluon fusion and associated production with a b-quark for which it defines two separated and optimized categories, respectively. The analysis is also split according to the tau decay, searching for the semi-leptonic and the fully hadronic final states. The estimation of the backgrounds is done using data-driven techniques for leading backgrounds (QCD, W+jets) and MC models for other contributions.

    We study the implications of LHC searches on SUSY particle spectra using flat scans of the 19-parameter pMSSM phase space. We apply constraints from flavour physics, g{sub {mu}} -2, dark matter and earlier LEP and Tevatron searches. The sensitivity of the LHC SUSY searches with jets, leptons and missing energy is assessed by reproducing with fast simulation the recent CMS analyses after validation on benchmark points. We present results in terms of the fraction of pMSSM points compatible with all the constraints which are excluded by the LHC searches with 1 fb {sup -1} and 15 fb {sup -1} as a function of the mass of strongly and weakly interacting SUSY particles. We also discuss the suppression of Higgs production cross sections for the MSSM points not excluded and contrast the region of parameter space tested by the LHC data with the constraints from dark matter direct detection experiments.

    2014-01-01

    We present SUSY_FLAVOR version 2.5 - program that calculates over 30 low-energy flavor observables in the general $R$-parity conserving MSSM. Comparing to previous versions, in SUSY_FLAVOR v2.5 parameter initialization in SLHA2 formats has been significantly generalized, so that the program accepts most of the output files produced by other libraries analyzing the MSSM phenomenology. Number of bugs and inconsistencies have been fixed, based on users feedback. Calculations of several processes implemented in earlier versions have been corrected. New processes of rare decays of the top quark to Higgs boson have been included. Variables controlling inclusion of contributions from various MSSM sectors have been added. Full updated manual of SUSY_FLAVOR v2.5 integrating the details of the modifications listed below can be found at {\\tt arxiv.org/abs/arXiv:1203.5023}.

  2. Enlarging regions of the MSSM parameter space for large tan β via SUSY decays of the heavy Higgs bosons

    In the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) searches for the heaviest CP-even and CP-odd Higgs H, A to tau-lepton pairs severely constrain the parameter region for large values of tan β and light Higgs bosons H, A. We demonstrate how the experimental constraint can be avoided by new decays to light third-generation sfermions, whose left-right couplings to H can be maximised in regions of large trilinear couplings A b , A τ for sbottoms and staus, or large supersymmetric (SUSY) Higgs mass μ for stops. Due to the tan β-enhancement in the production cross-sections via gluon-fusion and in association with bottom-quark pairs for H and A, we find that down-type sfermions, in particular, sbottoms perform a better job in allowing more parameter space than up-type sfermions such as stops, which require much larger values of μ to compensate for tan β. Vacuum stability as well as flavour observables constraints and direct searches for SUSY particles are imposed. We also associate the lightest CP-even Higgs with the observed 125 GeV SM-like Higgs and impose the experimental constraints from the LHC.

  3. Stau with Large Mass Difference and Enhancement of the Higgs to Diphoton Decay Rate in the MSSM

    2013-01-01

    The ATLAS and the CMS collaborations have presented results which show an excess of the Higgs to diphoton decay channel. In the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), this situation can be achieved by a light stau and a large left-right mixing of the staus. However, this parameter region is severely constrained by vacuum stability. In order to relax the vacuum meta-stability condition, we focus on the parameter region where the mass difference between the two staus is large. This region has not been considered yet. In this paper, we show that staus with a large mass difference can relax the vacuum meta-stability condition sufficiently even if the lighter stau mass is kept light. We find that when the mass difference of two staus is large, the enhancement of the Higgs to diphoton decay rate becomes small in spite of a relaxation of the vacuum meta-stability condition. Because of this feature, an O(70)% enhancement of the Higgs to diphoton decay rate is difficult to achieve in the light stau scenario in ...

    We study pair-production as well as the triple self-couplings of the neutral Higgs bosons of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) at the Future International Linear $e^{+}e^{-}$ Collider (ILC) and Compact Linear Collider (CLIC). The analysis is based on the reactions $e^{+}e^{-}\\to b \\bar b h_ih_i, t \\bar t h_ih_i$ with $h_i=h, H, A$. We evaluate the total cross-section for both $b\\bar bh_ih_i$, $t\\bar th_ih_i$ and calculate the total number of events considering the complete set of Feynman diagrams at tree-level. We vary the triple couplings $\\kappa\\lambda_{hhh}$, $\\kappa\\lambda_{Hhh}$, $\\kappa\\lambda_{hAA}$, $\\kappa\\lambda_{HAA}$, $\\kappa\\lambda_{hHH}$ and $\\kappa\\lambda_{HHH}$ within the range $\\kappa=-1$ and +2. The numerical computation is done for the energies expected at the ILC with a center-of-mass energy 500, 1000, 1600 $GeV$ and a luminosity 1000 $fb^{-1}$. The channels $e^{+}e^{-}\\to b \\bar b h_ih_i$ and $e^{+}e^{-}\\to t \\bar t h_ih_i$ are also discussed to a center-of-mass energy of 3...

    The possibility of generating a large trilinear $A_t$ soft supersymmetry breaking coupling at low energies through renormalisation group evolution in the 5D MSSM is investigated. Using the power law running in five dimensions and a compactification scale in the 10-$10^3$ TeV range, to show that gluino mass may drive a large enough $A_t$ to reproduce the measured Higgs mass and have a light stop superpartner below $\\sim 1$ TeV as preferred by the fine tuning argument for the Higgs mass.

    2014-01-01

    The minimal extension of the MSSM (NMSSM) has been widely studied in the search for a natural solution to the $\\mu$ problem. In this work, we consider a variation of the NMSSM where an extra singlet is added and a Peccei-Quinn symmetry is imposed. We study its neutralino sector and compute the annihilation cross section of the lightest neutralino. We use existent cosmological and collider data to constrain the parameter space and consider the lightest neutralino, which is very light, as a dark matter candidate.

    Measurement of the heavy neutral MSSM Higgs bosons and production in the process → / → $b\\bar{b}$ at the Photon Linear Collider [1,2] has been considered in two independent analyses for the parameter range corresponding to the so-called `LHC wedge'. Significantly different conclusions were obtained; signal-to-background ratio 36 vs. 2. Here assumptions and results of these two analyses are compared. We have found that differences in the final results are mainly due to different assumptions on -luminosity spectra, jet definitions and selection cuts.

    We perform a search for new physics using final states consisting of three leptons and a large imbalance in transverse momentum resulting from proton-antiproton collisions at 1.96 TeV center-of-mass energy. We use data corresponding to 5.8 fb-1 of integrated luminosity recorded by the CDF II detector at the Tevatron collider. Our main objective is to investigate possible new low-momentum (down to 5 GeV/c) multileptonic final states not investigated by LHC experiments. Relative to previous CDF analyses, we expand the geometric and kinematic coverage of electrons and muons and utilize tau leptons that decay hadronically. Inclusion of tau leptons is particularly important for supersymmetry (SUSY) searches. The results are consistent with standard-model predictions within 1.85σ. By optimizing our event selection to increase sensitivity to the minimal supergravity (mSUGRA) SUSY model, we set limits on the associated production of chargino and next-to-lightest neutralino, the SUSY partners of the electroweak gauge bosons. We exclude cross sections up to 0.1 pb and chargino masses up to 168 GeV/c2 at 95% C.L., for a suitable set of mSUGRA parameters. We also exclude a region of the two-dimensional space of the masses of the neutralino and the supersymmetric partner of the tau lepton, not previously excluded at the Tevatron.

    We perform a search for new physics using final states consisting of three leptons and a large imbalance in transverse momentum resulting from proton-antiproton collisions at 1.96 TeV center-of-mass energy. We use data corresponding to 5.8 fb-1 of integrated luminosity recorded by the CDF II detector at the Tevatron collider. Our main objective is to investigate possible new low-momentum (down to 5 GeV/c) multi-leptonic final states not investigated by LHC experiments. Relative to previous CDF analyses, we expand the geometric and kinematic coverage of electrons and muons and utilize tau leptons that decay hadronically. Inclusion of tau leptons is particularly important for supersymmetry (SUSY) searches. The results are consistent with standard-model predictions. By optimizing our event selection to increase sensitivity to the minimal supergravity (mSUGRA) SUSY model, we set limits on the associated production of chargino and neutralino, the SUSY partners of the electroweak gauge bosons. We exclude cross sect...

We also exclude a region of the two-dimensional space of the masses of the neutralino and the supersymmetric partner of the tau lepton, not previously excluded at the Tevatron.

    Herrmann, Björn

    In absence of direct experimental evidence, it is essential to constrain the parameter space of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) both at the Supersymmetry breaking and the electroweak scale. After a brief introduction to Supersymmetry (SUSY), we present an extensive analysis of electroweak, low energy, and cosmological constraints in minimal supergravity (mSUGRA) and gauge-mediated SUSY-breaking (GMSB) scenarios. We include the possibility of non-minimal flavour violation (NMFV) in the squark sector and define ``collider-friendly'' benchmark points based on detailed scans of the parameter space. We then consider neutralino pair annihilation into quark-antiquark pairs that dominates wide ranges of the mSUGRA parameter space. We present the corresponding full one-loop QCD and SUSY-QCD calculation and show numerically that the loop diagrams have an important impact on the annihilation cross section and, in consequence, in the prediction of the dark matter relic density, resulting in a modificatio...

    A search for neutral Higgs bosons decaying to pairs of tau leptons with the ATLAS detector at the LHC is presented. The analysis is based on proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, recorded in 2010 and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36 pb^-1. After signal selection, 276 events are observed in this data sample. The observed number of events is consistent with the total expected background of 269 +/- 36 events. Exclusion limits at the 95% confidence level are derived for the production cross section of a generic Higgs boson phi as a function of the Higgs boson mass and for A/H/h production in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) as a function of the parameters m_A and tan(beta).

    2016-08-01

    Full Text Available Recently the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations at the LHC announced their observation of a potential 750 GeV di-photon resonance, after analyzing the s=13 TeV LHC data. This observation has significant implications for low-energy supersymmetry. Beyond the MSSM and the NMSSM, we study the MSSM-extensions with an extra U(1′ gauge symmetry. The anomaly cancellation and the spontaneous breaking of the non-decoupled U(1′ generally require introducing vector-like supermultiplets (both colored and color-neutral ones and singlet supermultiplets, respectively. We illustrate that the potential 750 GeV resonance (Y can be accommodated in various mechanisms, as a singlet-like scalar or pseudoscalar. Three benchmark scenarios are presented: (1 vector-like quarks (VLQ mediated pp→Y→γγ; (2 scalar VLQ mediated pp→Y→γγ; (3 heavy scalar (pseudo-scalar H/A associated production pp→H⁎/A⁎→YH/h. Additionally, we notice that the Z′-mediated vector boson fusion production and Z′-associated production pp→Yqq′, if yielding a signal rate of the observed level, might have been excluded by the searches for Z′ via Drell–Yan process at the LHC.

    In the light dark matter (DM) scenario of the MSSM, the DM relic density puts non-trivial requirements on the spectrum of supersymmetric particles. As a result, the direct search for multi-lepton signals at the LHC has great impact on the scenario. In this work, we concentrate on the searches for sleptons and electroweak-inos at the LHC, and investigate the constraints on the light DM scenario from the 8 TeV LHC data as well as the capability of the 14 TeV LHC to test the scenario. We first get the samples of the scenario by scanning the vast parameter space of the MSSM and considering some easily available constraints, such as those from the DM relic density, the LUX experiment and the Higgs searches at colliders. Then for the surviving samples, we simulate the $2l+E_T^{miss}$ signal from slepton pair production process and the $2l+E_T^{miss}$ and $3l+E_T^{miss}$ signals from chargino and neutralino associated production processes at both the 8 TeV LHC and the 14 TeV LHC. Our simulations indicate that the 8 ...

    Liebler, Stefan; Weiglein, Georg

    2016-01-01

    A computation of inclusive cross sections for the production of neutral Higgs bosons through gluon fusion and bottom-quark annihilation is presented in the MSSM with complex parameters. The predictions for the gluon-fusion process are based on an explicit calculation of the leading-order cross section for the general case of arbitrary complex parameters which is supplemented by higher-order corrections. Massive top- and bottom-quark contributions are included at NLO QCD. In the effective theory of a heavy top-quark the top-quark contribution is taken into account up to N$^3$LO QCD in an expansion around the threshold of Higgs production for the $\\mathcal{CP}$-even component of the light Higgs boson. For the $\\mathcal{CP}$-odd component of the light Higgs boson and the heavy Higgs bosons the contributions in the effective field theory are incorporated up to NNLO QCD. Two-loop electroweak effects mediated through light quarks are also incorporated, and SUSY QCD corrections at NLO are interpolated from the MSSM ...

    A computation of inclusive cross sections for neutral Higgs boson production through gluon fusion and bottom-quark annihilation is presented in the MSSM with complex parameters. The predictions for the gluon-fusion process are based on an explicit calculation of the leading-order cross section for arbitrary complex parameters which is supplemented by higher-order corrections: massive top- and bottom-quark contributions at NLO QCD, in the heavy top-quark effective theory the top-quark contribution up to N{sup 3}LO QCD including a soft expansion for the CP-even component of the light Higgs boson. For its CP-odd component and the heavy Higgs bosons the contributions are incorporated up to NNLO QCD. Two-loop electroweak effects are also incorporated, and SUSY QCD corrections at NLO are interpolated from the MSSM with real parameters. Finite wave function normalisation factors ensuring correct on-shell properties of the external Higgs bosons are incorporated from the code FeynHiggs. For the typical case of a strong admixture of the two heavy Higgs bosons it is demonstrated that squark effects are strongly dependent on the phases of the complex parameters. The remaining theoretical uncertainties for cross sections are discussed. The results have been implemented into an extension of the numerical code SusHi called SusHiMi. (orig.)

    The relic density of TeV-scale wino-like neutralino dark matter in the MSSM is subject to potentially large corrections as a result of the Sommerfeld effect. A recently developed framework enables us to calculate the Sommerfeld-enhanced relic density in general MSSM scenarios, properly treating mixed states and multiple co-annihilating channels as well as including off-diagonal contributions. Using this framework, including on-shell one-loop mass splittings and running couplings and taking into account the latest experimental constraints, we perform a thorough study of the regions of parameter space surrounding the well known pure-wino scenario: namely the effect of sfermion masses being non-decoupled and of allowing non-negligible Higgsino or bino components in the lightest neutralino. We further perform an investigation into the effect of thermal corrections and show that these can safely be neglected. The results reveal a number of phenomenologically interesting but so far unexplored regions where the Somm...

    The Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model contains in general sources of tau lepton flavour violation which induce the rare decays {tau} {yields} {mu}{gamma} and {tau} {yields} e{gamma}. We argue in this paper that the observation of both rare processes would imply a lower bound on the radiative muon decay of the form BR({mu} {yields} e{gamma})>or similar C x BR({tau} {yields} {mu}{gamma})BR({tau} {yields} e{gamma}). We estimate the size of the constant C without specifying the origin of the tau flavour violation in the supersymmetric model and we discuss the implications of our bound for future searches of rare lepton decays. In particular, we show that, for a wide class of models, present B-factories could discover either {tau} {yields} {mu}{gamma}, but not both. We also derive for completeness the constant C in the most general setup, pursuing an effective theory approach. (orig.)

The mass hierarchies between the gravitino and other superparticles can be achieved by the non-trivial K\\"ahler metric of the SUSY breaking field. As a concrete model, we consider the five-dimensional supergravity model in which moduli are stabilized, and then one of the moduli induces the slow-roll inflation. It is founded that the relic abundance of gravitino and the Higgs boson mass reside in the allowed range without a severe fine-tuning.

    2000-01-01

    We discuss the phenomenology of the lightest stops in models where R-parity is broken by bilinear terms. In this class of models we consider scenarios where the R-parity breaking two-body decay stop_1 -> tau + b competes with the leading three-body decays stop_1 -> W^+ + b + neutralino_1, H^+ + b + neutralino_1, b slepton^+_i neutrino_l, b sneutrino_l l^+ (l=e, mu, tau). We demonstrate that the R-parity violating decay can be the dominant one. In particular we focus on the implications for a future electron posistion Linear Collider.

    Based on experimental observations, it is nowadays assumed that a large component of the matter content in the universe is comprised of so-called cold dark matter. Furthermore, latest measurements of the temperature fluctuations of the cosmic microwave background provided an estimation of the dark matter relic density at a measurement error of one percent (concerning the experimental 1σ-error). The lightest neutralino χ 0{sub 1}, a particle which subsumes under the phenomenologically interesting category of weakly interacting massive particles, is a viable dark matter candidate for many supersymmetric (SUSY) models whose relic density Ω{sub χ} {sub 0{sub 1}} happens to lie quite naturally within the experimentally favored ballpark of dark matter. The high experimental precision can be used to constrain the SUSY parameter space to its cosmologically favored regions and to pin down phenomenologically interesting scenarios. However, to actually benefit from this progress on the experimental side it is also mandatory to minimize the theoretical uncertainties. An important quantity within the calculation of the neutralino relic density is the thermally averaged sum over different annihilation and coannihilation cross sections of the neutralino and further supersymmetric particles. It is now assumed and also partly proven that these cross sections can be subject to large loop corrections which can even shift the associated Ω{sub χ} {sub 0{sub 1}} by a factor larger than the current experimental error. However, most of these corrections are yet unknown. In this thesis, we calculate higher-order corrections for some of the most important (co)annihilation channels both within the framework of the R-parity conserving Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) and investigate their impact on the final neutralino relic density Ω{sub χ} {sub 0{sub 1}}. More precisely, this work provides the full O(α{sub s}) corrections of supersymmetric quantum chromodynamics (SUSY

    The search for the production of weakly interacting SUSY particles at the LHC is crucial for testing supersymmetry in relation to dark matter. Decays of neutralinos into Higgs bosons occur over some significant part of the SUSY parameter space and represent the most important source of h boson production in SUSY decay chains in the MSSM. We study h production in neutralino decays using scans of the phenomenological MSSM. Whilst in constrained MSSM scenarios the decay χ{sub 2}{sup 0} → hχ{sub 1}{sup 0} is the dominant channel, this does not hold in more general MSSM scenarios. On the other hand, the χ{sub 2,3}{sup 0} → hχ{sub 1}{sup 0} decays remain important and are highly complementary to multi-lepton final states in the LHC searches. The perspectives for the LHC analyses at 8 and 14 TeV as well as the reach of an e{sup +}e{sup -} collider with √(s) = 0.5, 1, 1.5 and 3 TeV are discussed. (orig.)

    The accuracy in the measurement of the masses of sleptons and heavy Higgs bosons in cMSSM scenarios, compatible with the WMAP result on cold dark matter, has been re-analysed in view of the requirements for predicting this density to a few percent level from SUSY measurements at the linear collider.

    Flavor symmetries \\`a la Froggatt-Nielsen~(FN) provide a compelling way to explain the hierarchies of fermionic masses and mixing angles in the Yukawa sector. In Supersymmetric (SUSY) extensions of the Standard Model where the mediation of SUSY breaking occurs at scales larger than the breaking of flavor, this symmetry must be respected not only by the Yukawas of the superpotential, but by the soft-breaking masses and trilinear terms as well. In this work we show that contrary to naive expectations, even starting with completely flavor blind soft-breaking in the full theory at high scales, the low-energy sfermion mass matrices and trilinear terms of the effective theory, obtained upon integrating out the heavy mediator fields, are strongly non-universal. We explore the phenomenology of these SUSY flavor models after the latest LHC searches for new physics.

    2010-01-01

    In this work, we have investigated the nature of the electroweak phase transition (EWPT) in the U(1) extended Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (UMSSM) without introducing any exotic filds. The effective potential has been estimated exactly at finite temperature taking into account the whole particle spectrum. For reasonable values of the lightest Higgs and neutralino, we found that the EWPT could be strongly first order due to: 1) the interactions of the singlet with the doublets in the effective potential, and 2) the evolution of the wrong vacuum, that delays the transition.

  9. Resummation of Goldstone boson contributions to the MSSM effective potential

    2016-07-01

    We discuss the resummation of the Goldstone boson contributions to the effective potential of the minimal supersymmetric Standard Model. This eliminates the formal problems of spurious imaginary parts and logarithmic singularities in the minimization conditions when the tree-level Goldstone boson squared masses are negative or approach zero. The numerical impact of the resummation is shown to be almost always very small. We also show how to write the two-loop minimization conditions so that Goldstone boson squared masses do not appear at all, and so that they can be solved without iteration.

    I discuss the static quantities of the W boson, magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole moments, in the context of the minimal supersymmetric standard model, in which supersymmetry is broken by soft terms A_o,\\, m_o,\\, M_{1/2}. Following a renormalization group analysis it is found that the supersymmetric values of \\Delta k_{\\gamma} and \\Delta Q_{\\gamma} can be largely different, in some cases, from the standard model predictions but of the same order of magnitude for values of \\quad A_0,m_0,M_{1/2} \\leq {\\cal O}(1 TeV) . Therefore possible supersymmetric structure can be probed provided the accuracy of measurements for \\Delta k_{\\gamma}, \\Delta Q_{\\gamma} reaches 10^{-2}-10^{-3} and hence hard to be detected at LEP2. In cases where M_{1/2} \\ll A_0,m_0 , the charginos and neutralinos may give substantial contributions saturating the LEP2 sensitivity limits. This occurs when their masses m_{\\tilde C},m_{\\tilde Z} turn out to be both light satisfying m_{\\tilde C}+m_{\\tilde Z} \\simeq M_W . However these extreme ...

  11. Extended Minimal Flavour Violating MSSM and Implications for B Physics

    Current world average of the CP asymmetry a(psi K), obtained from the rate differences in the decays B^0 -> (J/psi K_S), (J/psi K_L) and their charge conjugates, is barely compatible with the standard model (SM) predictions resulting from the unitarity of the CKM matrix. Indirect estimate of this CP asymmetry in the so-called minimal flavour violating (MFV) supersymmetric extensions of the standard model, in which the CKM matrix remains the only flavour changing structure, is similar to the one in the SM. If the present experimental trend yielding a(psi K,exp) - a(psi K,SM) d gamma as sensitive probes of the postulated flavour changing structure. This is quantified in terms of the ratio R(rho gamma/K* gamma) = 2 B(B^0 -> rho^0 gamma)/B(B^0 -> K^*0 gamma), the isospin violating ratio Delta=B(B^+ -> rho^+ gamma)/2B(B^0 -> rho^0 gamma) -1, and the CP-asymmetry in the decay rates for B^+ -> rho^+ gamma and its charge conjugate.

    2013-01-01

    Light neutralino dark matter can be achieved in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model if staus are rather light, with mass around 100 GeV. We perform a detailed analysis of the relevant supersymmetric parameter space, including also the possibility of light selectons and smuons, and of light higgsino- or wino-like charginos. In addition to the latest limits from direct and indirect detection of dark matter, ATLAS and CMS constraints on electroweak-inos and on sleptons are taken into account using a ``simplified models'' framework. Measurements of the properties of the Higgs boson at 125 GeV, which constrain amongst others the invisible decay of the Higgs boson into a pair of neutralinos, are also implemented in the analysis. We show that viable neutralino dark matter can be achieved for masses as low as 15 GeV. In this case, light charginos close to the LEP bound are required in addition to light right-chiral staus. Significant deviations are observed in the couplings of the 125 GeV Higgs boson. These con...

  13. The Decay $b \\to s \\gamma$ In The Mssm Revisited

    CERN Document Server

    Borzumati, Francesca M

    1994-01-01

    We present a re-analysis of the decay $\\bsgamma$ in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model with radiatively induced breaking of $SU(2) \\times U(1)$. We extend this analysis to regions of the supersymmetric parameter space wider than those previously studied. Results are explicitly presented for $m_t=150\\GeV$. We emphasize the consequences for future searches of charged Higgs and charginos from a measurement of the branching ratio for this decay compatible with the Standard Model prediction. In spite of the strong sensitivity of this decay to the effects of supersymmetry, we find that, at the moment, no lower limit on the mass of these particles can be obtained. The large chargino contributions to the branching ratio for $\\bsgamma$, for large values of $\\tan \\beta$, are effectively reduced by pushing the lightest eigenvalue of the up-squark mass matrix closer to the electroweak scale, i.e. by increasing the degree of degeneracy among the up-squarks.

    We make use of the formalism of [T. Konstandin, et al., hep-ph/0410135], and calculate the chargino-mediated baryogenesis in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. The formalism makes use of a gradient expansion of the Kadanoff-Baym equations for mixing fermions. For illustrative purposes, we first discuss the semiclassical transport equations for mixing bosons in a space-time-dependent Higgs background. To calculate the baryon asymmetry, we solve a standard set of diffusion equations, according to which the chargino asymmetry is transported to the top sector, where it biases sphaleron transitions. At the end we make a qualitative and quantitative comparison of our results with the existing work. We find that the production of the baryon asymmetry of the universe by CP-violating currents in the chargino sector is strongly constrained by measurements of electric dipole moments.

    ATLAS and CMS collaborations have just reported the new results on Higgs search analyzing $\\sim 15$ fb$^{-1}$ data from Run-II of LHC at 13 TeV. In this work we study the Higgs sector of the phenomenological Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model, in the light of the new Higgs data presented at ICHEP 2016, on and above the existing Run-I data, and comment on their relative impacts. We have observed that the new data has two major impacts on the parameter space: The first one is through the $H \\to \\tau \\tau$ direct search limit which rules out the high $\\tan\\beta$ regions more efficiently than the Run-I data. Secondly, the correlated light Higgs observables as reported by ATLAS with Run-II data in the $h \\to ZZ$ channel, which disfavours pseudoscalar mass below 450 GeV. Finally we discuss the possible decay modes of heavy Higgs bosons to supersymmetric particles.

  16. Muon g - 2 in MSSM gauge mediation revisited

    Science.gov (United States)

    Yanagida, Tsutomu T.; Yokozaki, Norimi

    2017-09-01

    The Higgs boson of 125 GeV requires large stop masses, leading to the large μ-parameter in most cases of gauge mediation. On the other hand, the explanation for the muon g - 2 anomaly needs small slepton and neutralino/chargino masses. Such disparity in masses may be obtained from a mass splitting of colored and non-colored messenger fields. However, even if the required small slepton and neutralino/chargino masses are realized, all parameter regions consistent with the muon g - 2 are excluded by the recent updated ATLAS result on the wino search in the case that the messenger fields are in 5 + 5 bar representations of SU (5). It is also revealed that the messenger fields in 10 + 10 ‾ or 24 representation can not explain the muon g - 2 anomaly. We show, giving a simple example model, that the above confliction is solved if there is an additional contribution to the Higgs soft mass which makes the μ-parameter small. We also show that the required Higgs B-term for the electroweak symmetry breaking is consistently generated by radiative corrections from gaugino loops.

    Within the {nu}MSSM, a Minimal Supersymmetric neutrino See-saw Model, Lepton Flavour Violating Higgs couplings are strongly enhanced at large tan{beta} ({>=}30), which can lead to BR(H{sup 0}/A{sup 0}{yields}{tau}{mu}){approx_equal}O(10{sup -4}), for M{sub H{sup 0}/A{sup 0}}{>=}160 GeV. Enhancements on the production of Higgs bosons, through the gluon fusion mechanism, gg{yields}H{sup 0}/A{sup 0}, and the associated production channel gg,qq-bar {yields}bb-bar H{sup 0}/A{sup 0}, whose rates grow with tan{beta}, as well as the mass degeneracy that occurs between the H{sup 0} and A{sup 0} states in this regime, also contribute to further the possibilities to detect a heavy Higgs signal into {tau}{mu} pairs. We show that the separation of {tau}{mu} Higgs events from the background at the upcoming CERN Large Hadron Collider could be done for Higgs masses up to about 600 GeV for 300 fb{sup -1} of luminosity, for large tan{beta} values. However, even with as little as 10 fb{sup -1} one can probe H{sup 0}/A{sup 0} masses up to 400 GeV or so, if tan{beta}=60. Altogether, these processes then provide a new Higgs discovery mode as well as an independent test of flavour physics.

    We construct an effective three dimensional theory for the MSSM at high temperatures in the limit of large-$m_{A}$. We analyse the two-loop effective potential of the 3D theory for the case of a light right handed stop to determine the precise region in the $m_{h}$-$m_{\\tilde{t}_{R}}$ plane for which the sphaleron constraint for preservation of the baryon asymmetry is satisfied. We also compare with results previously obtained usind 3D and 4D calculations of the effective potential. A two-stage phase transition still persists for a small range of values of $m_{\\tilde{t}_{R}}$. The allowed region requires a value of $m_{\\tilde{t}_{R}} \\lsi m_{t}$ and $m_{h} \\lsi 100$ (110) GeV for $m_{Q} = 300$ GeV (1 TeV).

    2014-01-01

    We study the production of scalar and pseudoscalar Higgs bosons via gluon fusion and bottom-quark annihilation in the MSSM. Relying on the NNLO-QCD calculation implemented in the public code SusHi, we provide precise predictions for the Higgs-production cross section in six benchmark scenarios compatible with the LHC searches. We also provide a detailed discussion of the sources of theoretical uncertainty in our calculation. We examine the dependence of the cross section on the renormalization and factorization scales, on the precise definition of the Higgs-bottom coupling and on the choice of PDFs, as well as the uncertainties associated to our incomplete knowledge of the SUSY contributions through NNLO. In particular, a potentially large uncertainty originates from uncomputed higher-order QCD corrections to the bottom-quark contributions to gluon fusion.

    The LHC has started to constrain supersymmetry-breaking parameters by setting bounds on possible colored particles at the weak scale. Moreover, constraints from Higgs physics, flavor physics, the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, as well as from searches at LEP and the Tevatron have set additional bounds on these parameters. Renormalization Group Invariants (RGIs) provide a very useful way of representing the allowed parameter space by making direct connection with the values of these parameters at the messenger scale. Using a general approach, based on the pMSSM parametrization of the soft supersymmetry-breaking parameters, we analyze the current experimental constraints to determine the probability distributions for the RGIs. As examples of their application, we use these distributions to analyze the question of Gaugino Mass Unification and to probabilistically determine the parameters of General and Minimal Gauge Mediation with arbitrary Higgs mass parameters at the Messenger Scale.

    The MSSM can explain electro-weak symmetry breaking if one scalar top quark (stop) is light. In addition, in this framework, the neutralino is a good dark matter candidate and for small stop-neutralino mass differences dm{sub i} = 30 GeV, co-annihilation plays an important role to match the results from WMAP and SDSS for the relic density in the universe. In this scenario, the stops mainly decays into charm and neutralino, making its discovery difficult at hadron colliders due to background and trigger limitations. They present results for the discovery reach of the ILC for a DM candidate as low as 0(5 GeV) based on a realistic experimental simulation. Moreover, the stop parameters could be measured with high precision.

  2. Phenomenology of on-shell Higgs production in the MSSM with complex parameters

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Liebler, Stefan; Patel, Shruti; Weiglein, Georg

    2016-11-15

    A computation of inclusive cross sections for the production of neutral Higgs bosons through gluon fusion and bottom-quark annihilation is presented in the MSSM with complex parameters. The predictions for the gluon-fusion process are based on an explicit calculation of the leading-order cross section for the general case of arbitrary complex parameters which is supplemented by higher-order corrections. Massive top- and bottom-quark contributions are included at NLO QCD. In the effective theory of a heavy top-quark the top-quark contribution is taken into account up to N{sup 3}LO QCD in an expansion around the threshold of Higgs production for the CP-even component of the light Higgs boson. For the CP-odd component of the light Higgs boson and the heavy Higgs bosons the contributions in the effective field theory are incorporated up to NNLO QCD. Two-loop electroweak effects mediated through light quarks are also incorporated, and SUSY QCD corrections at NLO are interpolated from the MSSM with real parameters. Finite wave function normalisation factors for the external Higgs bosons ensuring the correct on-shell properties are incorporated from the code FeynHiggs. In the numerical analysis for the typical case of a strong admixture of the two heavy Higgs bosons it is demonstrated that squark effects are strongly dependent on the phases of the complex parameters, and the relevance of the resummation of squark effects in the bottom-quark Yukawa coupling is emphasised. The remaining theoretical uncertainties in the cross section predictions are discussed. The results have been implemented into an extension of the numerical code SusHi called SusHiMi.

    A search for heavy scalar H and pseudoscalar A neutral Higgs bosons at the LHC in their production in the gluon-fusion mechanism and their decays into a top quark pair is presented. This analysis uses the dataset with an integrated luminosity of 35.9fb−1 of pp collision collected by the CMS experiment in 2016, at a center-of-mass energy of √s = 13 TeV. The results are interpreted in the context of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). Interference effect between signal process and Standard Model tt¯production is being considered. Upper limits are set on the coupling modifier within the hMSSM benchmark scenario as a function of the Higgs mass MA/H and the ratio of vacuum expectation value of the Higgs doublet field tan β for 400 6 MA/H 6 750 GeV. Extrapolation of results is made for prediction of exclusion limits at luminosities of 100 and 1000 pb−1.

    The discovery of a relatively heavy Standard Model (SM) -like Higgs boson challenges naturalness of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) from both Higgs and dark matter (DM) sectors. We study these two aspects in the MSSM extended by the low-scale inverse seesaw mechanism. Firstly, it admits a sizable radiative correction on the Higgs boson mass m_h, up to \\sim 4 GeV in the case of an IR-fixed point of the coupling Y_\

    We have searched for evidence of supersymmetry with 1 $fb^-1$ with collected with low-$p_T$ dimuon triggers of the Collider Detector on Tevatron Run II, at Fermilab. We looked for trilepton events in $p\\bar{p}$ collisions at $\\sqrt{s} = 1.96$ TeV. In the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) we expect chargino-neutralino pair production, with subsequent decay into three isolated leptons. We observe one event of three isolated muons, a possible hint of supersymmetry.

    We investigate the heavier electroweakino sectors in several versions of the MSSM, which has not been explored so far in the light of the LHC data, and obtain new bounds using the ATLAS Run I constraints in the 3 l +E̸T channel. We also venture beyond the trilepton events and predict several novel multilepton +E̸T signatures of these electroweakinos which may show up during LHC Run II before the next long shutdown. These signals can potentially distinguish between various models with nondecoupled heavier electroweakinos and the much studied ones with decoupled heavier electroweakinos.

    We describe the Fortran code CPsuperH2.3, which incorporates the following updates compared with its predecessor CPsuperH2.0. It implements improved calculations of the Higgs-boson masses and mixing including stau contributions and finite threshold effects on the tau-lepton Yukawa coupling.

    We present GM2Calc, a public C++ program for the calculation of MSSM contributions to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, $(g-2)_\\mu$. The code computes $(g-2)_\\mu$ precisely, by taking into account the latest two-loop corrections and by performing the calculation in a physical on-shell renormalization scheme. In particular the program includes a $\\tan\\beta$-resummation so that it is valid for arbitrarily high values of $\\tan\\beta$, as well as fermion/sfermion-loop corrections which lead to non-decoupling effects from heavy squarks. GM2Calc can be run with a standard SLHA input file, internally converting the input into on-shell parameters. Alternatively, input parameters may be specified directly in this on-shell scheme. In both cases the input file allows one to switch on/off individual contributions to study their relative impact.

  11. Towards a complete theory of thermal leptogenesis in the SM and MSSM

    We perform a thorough study of thermal leptogenesis adding finite temperature effects, RGE corrections, scatterings involving gauge bosons and by properly avoiding overcounting on-shell processes. Assuming hierarchical right-handed neutrinos with arbitrary abundancy, successful leptogenesis can be achieved if left-handed neutrinos are lighter than 0.15 eV and right-handed neutrinos heavier than 2x10{sup 7} GeV (SM case, 3{sigma} C.L.). MSSM results are similar. Furthermore, we study how reheating after inflation affects thermal leptogenesis. Assuming that the inflaton reheats SM particles but not directly right-handed neutrinos, we derive the lower bound on the reheating temperature to be T{sub RH} > or approx. 2x10{sup 9} GeV. This bound conflicts with the cosmological gravitino bound present in supersymmetric theories. We study some scenarios that avoid this conflict: 'soft leptogenesis', leptogenesis in presence of a large right-handed (s)neutrino abundancy or of a sneutrino condensate.

  12. Studies with Muons in ATLAS: TileCal Level-2 Trigger and MSSM Higgs Discovery Reach

    Ruiz Martínez, A; Valls Ferrer, J A

    2009-01-01

    This thesis was carried out in the years previous to the LHC start-up, i.e. during the ATLAS detector commissioning phase. It contains an introductory part about the detector and its expected physics performance and two main parts about the development of a Level-2 trigger for muons and a study of the MSSM Higgs discovery reach with simulated data, which are briefly described below. The first part of the thesis is devoted to TileMuId, the muon identication algorithm based on TileCal whose main goal is to be used as a Level-2 trigger of low-$p_{\\text{T}}$ muons. A second version of TileMuId (ROD-based) has been implemented to run in the TileCal ROD DSPs. This involved developments in the DSP firmware and in the Athena framework, described in the document. In addition, studies of the algorithm performance in terms of efficiency and fraction of fakes have been done. Developments and studies to match the TileCal muon candidates with the Inner Detector tracks (provided by ID reconstruction algorithms) have been pe...

  13. Interference effects of neutral MSSM Higgs bosons with a generalised narrow-width approximation

    CERN Document Server

    Fuchs, Elina

    2014-01-01

    Mixing effects in the MSSM Higgs sector can give rise to a sizeable interference between the neutral Higgs bosons. On the other hand, factorising a more complicated process into production and decay parts by means of the narrow-width approximation (NWA) simplifies the calculation. The standard NWA, however, does not account for interference terms. Therefore, we introduce a generalisation of the NWA (gNWA) which allows for a consistent treatment of interference effects between nearly mass-degenerate particles. Furthermore, we apply the gNWA at the tree and 1-loop level to an example process where the neutral Higgs bosons $h$ and $H$ are produced in the decay of a heavy neutralino and subsequently decay into a fermion pair. The $h-H$ propagator mixing is found to agree well with the approximation of Breit-Wigner propagators times finite wave-function normalisation factors, both leading to a significant interference contribution. The factorisation of the interference term based on on-shell matrix elements reprod...

  16. $h^0(125GeV) \\to c \\bar{c}$ as a test case for quark flavor violation in the MSSM

    2015-01-01

    We calculate the decay width of $h^0(125GeV) \\to c \\bar{c}$ in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) with non-minimal quark flavor violation (QFV) at full one-loop level. We adopt the $\\overline{\\rm DR}$ renormalization scheme. We study the effects of the mixing of the second and third squark generations (i.e. scharm-stop mixing) on the decay width, respecting the experimental constraints from B-meson data, the Higgs mass measurement and supersymmetric (SUSY) particle searches. We show that the decay width $\\Gamma (h^0 \\to c \\bar{c})$ at the full one-loop level is very sensitive to the SUSY QFV parameters. In a scenario with large scharm-stop mixing, the decay width can differ up to $\\sim \\pm 35\\%$ from its SM prediction. After taking into account the experimental and theoretical uncertainties of the decay width, we conclude that these QFV SUSY effects can be observed at a future $e^+ e^-$ collider such as ILC (International Linear Collider).

    We study the cross sections for the production of a neutral, intermediate mass Higgs boson in the processes $pp\\rightarrow tq'\\Phi$, $pp\\rightarrow tW^-\\Phi$ and $pp\\rightarrow bZ^0\\Phi$ in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model ($\\Phi=H^0,h^0$ and $A^0$) at Supercollider energies. The additional heavy particles ($t$, $W$, $Z$) in the final state can be used for tagging purposes, increasing the signal to background ratio. These reactions are dominated by $bq$ and $bg$ fusion. Their relevance for Higgs particle searches is discussed taking into account the expected efficiencies and purities for $b$--tagging. We find that, for tan$\\beta = 30$, the cross sections for $pp\\rightarrow bZ^0\\Phi$ are larger than 14 $pb$, over the whole intemediate range of $M_{A^0}$, for $A^0$ and at least one of the other two Higgses. Therefore this reaction is an excellent candidate for the discovery of one or more $\\cal MSSM$ Higgs particles.}

    The top-Yukawa-coupling enhanced two-loop corrections to the charged Higgs-boson mass in the real MSSM are presented. The contributing two-loop self-energies are calculated in the Feynman-diagrammatic approach in the gaugeless limit with vanishing external momentum and bottom mass, within a renormalization scheme comprising on-shell and DR conditions. Numerical results illustrate the effect of the O(α{sub t}{sup 2}) contributions and the importance of the two-loop corrections to the mass of the charged Higgs bosons. (orig.)

    We discuss Higgs boson decays in the CP-violating MSSM, and examine their phe- nomenological impact using cross section limits from the LEP Higgs searches. This includes a discussion of the full 1-loop results for the partial decay widths of neutral Higgs bosons into lighter neutral Higgs bosons (h{sub a}{yields}h{sub b}h{sub c}) and of neutral Higgs bosons into fermions (h{sub a}{yields}f anti f). In calculating the genuine vertex corrections, we take into account the full spectrum of supersymmetric particles and all complex phases of the supersymmetric parameters. These genuine vertex corrections are supplemented with Higgs propagator corrections incorporating the full one-loop and the dominant two-loop contributions, and we illustrate a method of consistently treating diagrams involving mixing with Goldstone and Z bosons. In particular, the genuine vertex corrections to the process h{sub a}{yields}h{sub b}h{sub c} are found to be very large and, where this process is kinematically allowed, can have a significant effect on the regions of the CPX bench- mark scenario which can be excluded by the results of the Higgs searches at LEP. However, there remains an unexcluded region of CPX parameter space at a lightest neutral Higgs boson mass of {proportional_to}45 GeV. In the analysis, we pay particular attention to the conversion between parameters defined in different renormalisation schemes and are therefore able to make a comparison to the results found using renormalisation group improved/effective potential calculations.

  20. Models of Supersymmetry for Dark Matter

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Muñoz Carlos

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available A brief review of supersymmetric models and their candidates for dark matter is carried out. The neutralino is a WIMP candidate in the MSSM where R-parity is conserved, but this model has the μ problem. There are natural solutions to this problem that necessarily introduce new structure beyond the MSSM, including new candidates for dark matter. In particular, in an extension of the NMSSM, the right-handed sneutrino can be used for this job. In R-parity violating models such as the μvSSM, the gravitino can be the dark matter, and could be detected by its decay products in gamma-ray experiments.

    We have searched for evidence of supersymmetry with the Collider Detector at Fermilab using trilepton events in p$\\bar{p}$ collisions at √s = 1.8 TeV. In the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), we expect trilepton events from chargino-neutralino ($\\tilde{χ}$±1$\\tilde{χ}$02) pair production, with subsequent decay into leptons. In all possible combinations of electron and muon channels, we observe no candidate events in 107 pb-1 of data. We present limits on chargino and neutralino production within the framework of a supergravity inspired MSSM: σ$\\tilde{χ}$±1$\\tilde{χ}$02 ∙ BR($\\tilde{χ}$±1$\\tilde{χ}$02 → 3l + X) < 0.34 pb and M$\\tilde{χ}$±1} > 81.5 GeV/c2 for tan β = 2, μ = -600 GeV/c2$\\tilde{q}$ = M$\\tilde{g}$. We also present limits on a SU(5) x U(1) supergravity model and a 4 and 1/2 parameter Minimal SUGRA model.

    Results are presented for the momentum-dependent two-loop contributions of O(α{sub t}α{sub s}) to the masses and mixing effects in the Higgs sector of the MSSM. They are obtained in the Feynman-diagrammatic approach using a mixed on-shell/DR renormalization that can directly be matched onto the higher-order corrections included in the code FeynHiggs. The new two-loop diagrams are evaluated with the program SecDec. The combination of the new momentum-dependent two-loop contribution with the existing one- and two-loop corrections in the on-shell/DR scheme leads to an improved prediction of the light MSSM Higgs boson mass and a correspondingly reduced theoretical uncertainty. We find that the corresponding shifts in the lightest Higgs-boson mass M{sub h} are below 1 GeV in all scenarios considered, but they can extend up to the level of the current experimental uncertainty. The results are included in the code FeynHiggs. (orig.)

  3. Particle physics and cosmology in supersymmetric models

    Science.gov (United States)

    Morrissey, David Edgar

    The Standard Model (SM) of particle physics provides an excellent description of the elementary particle interactions observed in particle collider experiments, but the model does less well when it is applied to cosmology. Recent measurements of the Universe over very large distances indicate the existence of non-luminous dark matter and an excess of baryons over anti-baryons. The SM is unable to account for either of these results, implying that an extension of the SM description is needed. One such extension is supersymmetry. Within the minimal supersymmetric version of the SM, the MSSM, the lightest superpartner particle can make up the dark matter, and the baryon asymmetry can be generated by the mechanism of electroweak baryogenesis (EWBG). In this work, we examine these issues together in order to find out whether the MSSM can account for both of them simultaneously. We find that the MSSM can explain both the baryon asymmetry and the dark matter, but only over a very constrained region of the model parameter space. The strongest constraints on this scenario come from the lower bound on the Higgs boson mass, and the upper bound on the electric dipole moment of the electron. Moreover, upcoming experiments will probe the remaining allowed parameter space in the near future. Some of these constraints may be relaxed by going beyond the MSSM. With this in mind, we also investigate the nMSSM, a minimal singlet extension of the MSSM. We find that this model can also explain both the dark matter and the baryon asymmetry.

    During the twelve years of operation of the $e^{+}e^{-}$ collider LEP, the associated collaborations, ALEPH, DELPHI, L3 and OPAL, have extensively searched for Higgs bosons over a broad range of masses. We present the final results from LEP for the standard model Higgs boson which are obtained from a statistical combination of the data from the four experiments. We also present preliminary combined results for neutral Higgs bosons in the minimal supersymmetric model (MSSM) where the Higgs sector is assumed to be CP invariant. Finally, we discuss an alternative MSSM scenario including CP violation in the Higgs sector.

We show that constraints derived on the mass of the lightest h{sup 0} and the CP-odd A{sup 0} bosons from these searches are covering a larger fraction of the SUSY parameter space compared to searches for strongly interacting supersymmetric particle partners. We discuss the implications of a mass determination for the lightest Higgs boson in the range 123MSSM scenarios not excluded at the end of 2012 by LHC and direct dark matter searches and their implications on LHC SUSY searches.

  6. Systematic and Experimental Uncertainties in the Search for Neutral MSSM Higgs Bosons Decaying to Two Tau Leptons

    CERN Document Server

    Hauswald, Lorenz

    For every physics measurement it is essential to precisely know its uncertainty. At the search for neutral MSSM Higgs bosons the decay channel to two tau leptons plays a major role. For this channel the influence of the uncertainty of Monte Carlo generator parameters on the acceptance of the analyses is studied in this thesis. The corresponding uncertainties are found to be in the range of $0$ to $30\\,\\%$. Physics with tau leptons is exceptionally challenging, because they can decay into hadrons, which, at the Large Hadron Collider, are hardly distinguishable from the overwhelming QCD background. Sophisticated multivariate algorithms aim to identify them correctly. The impact of experimental uncertainties on the outcome of the identification algortihms is subject of the second part of the thesis. The uncertainties obtained are below $7\\,\\%$.

    We have searched for associated production of the lightest chargino W~1 and next-to-lightest neutralino Z~2 of the minimal supersymmetric standard model in pp¯ collisions at s = 1.8 TeV using the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. Data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 12.5+/-0.7 pb-1 were examined for events containing three isolated leptons. No evidence for W~1Z~2 pair production was found. Limits on σ\\(W~1Z~2\\)B\\(W~1-->lνZ~1\\)B\\(Z~2-->ll¯Z~1\\) are presented.

    A search for WZ production through the study of the reaction pp→ lnee+X l=e, m at s=1.8 TeV using the DØ detector at Fermilab is presented. In a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 92.3 ± 5.0 pb − 1, 1 candidate event was identified. The Standard Model prediction is 0.245 ± 0.002 (stat) ± 0.015 (syst) events, with an estimated background of 0.498 ± 0.072 (stat) ± 0.125 (syst) events. The 95donfidence level limit on the WZ production cross section is 48.3 pb. Limits on the WWZ anomalous coupling parameters are obtained from a likelihood fit to the number of observed events. Assuming a form factor scale of 1.0 TeV, the 95onfidence level limits on the WWZ couplings are lZ< 1.42 and Dg1Z < 1.63 when the other coupling parameters are constrained to their Standard Model values.

    We describe the Fortran code CPsuperH2.3, which incorporates the following updates compared with its predecessor CPsuperH2.0. It implements improved calculations of the Higgs-boson masses and mixing including stau contributions and finite threshold effects on the tau-lepton Yukawa coupling. It incorporates the LEP limits on the processes e^+e^-->H_iZ,H_iH_j and the CMS limits on H_i->@t@?@t obtained from 4.6 fb^-^1 of data at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. It also includes the decay mode H_i->Z@c and the Schiff-moment contributions to the electric dipole moments of Mercury and Radium 225, with several calculational options for the case of Mercury. These additions make CPsuperH2.3 a suitable tool for analyzing possible CP-violating effects in the MSSM in the era of the LHC and a new generation of EDM experiments.

    The production of $t \\bar t Z$ serves as an important probe of the coupling of top quarks to Z bosons. Modifications to the $t \\bar t Z$ vertex by physics beyond the Standard Model would have an effect on the $t \\bar t Z$ production rates. The first measurements of $t \\bar t Z$ production were performed in 8 TeV data by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the LHC. At 13 TeV collision energy, the production rate of $t \\bar t Z$ increases by almost a factor of 4 and the effects of new physics, if present, should become more prominent. The first measurement by ATLAS of $t \\bar t Z$ production at 13 TeV is presented here, with focus on the selection region that requires three charged leptons. This signature constitutes a compromise between a higher branching ratio for hadronic top decay chains and the better separation from background of the leptonic top decays. Moreover, the $t \\bar t W$ process is measured, using final states that contain either three charged leptons or two muons of the same charge. The first obse...

    Searches for charginos and neutralinos are performed with the data collected by the ALEPH detector at LEP at centre-of-mass energies near 183 GeV. In these searches, it is assumed that R-parity is conserved and that the lightest neutralino is the LSP. No evidence of a signal is observed in the 57 pb-1 accumulated, which excludes chargino and associated neutralino production up to the kinematic limit over large regions of the MSSM parameter space. Under the assumptions of common gaugino and common sfermion masses at the unification scale, the interplay between the chargino, neutralino and slepton exclusions allows a lower limit of 27 GeV/c2 to be set on the mass of the lightest neutralino. Tighter constraints on the MSSM parameter space are obtained using in addition exclusions in the Higgs sector. Finally, the results are interpreted within the framework of minimal supergravity.

  13. The Minimal Supersymmetric Model without a mu term

    Nelson, A E; Sanz, V; Unsal, M; Nelson, Ann E.; Rius, Nuria; Sanz, Veronica; Unsal, Mithat

    2002-01-01

    We propose a supersymmetric extension of the standard model which is a realistic alternative to the MSSM, and which has several advantages. No ``mu'' supersymmetric Higgs/Higgsino mass parameter is needed for sufficiently heavy charginos. An approximate U(1) R symmetry naturally guarantees that tan beta is large, explaining the top/bottom quark mass hierarchy. This symmetry also suppresses supersymmetric contributions to anomalous magnetic moments, b to s gamma, and proton decay, and these processes place no lower bounds on superpartner masses, even at large tan beta. The soft supersymmetry breaking mass parameters can easily be obtained from either gauge or Planck scale mediation, without the usual mu problem. Unlike in the MSSM, there are significant upper bounds on the masses of superpartners, including an upper bound of 114 GeV on the mass of the lightest chargino. However the MSSM bound on the lightest Higgs mass does not apply.

    We analyse the testability of the type II radiative seesaw in which neutrino mass and dark matter (DM) are related at one-loop level. Under the constraints from DM relic density, direct and indirect detection, and invisible Higgs decays, we find three possible regions of DM mass $M_{s_1}$ that can survive the present and even the future experiments: (1) the Higgs resonance region with $M_{s_1}\\sim M_h/2$, (2) the Higgs region with $M_{s_1}\\sim M_h$, and (3) the coannihilation region with $M_{s_2}\\sim M_{s_1}$. Here $s_{1,2}$ are two scalar singlets with the lighter $s_1$ being the DM candidate. Based on DM properties and direct collider constraints, we choose three benchmark points to illustrate the testability of this model at LHC. We perform a detailed simulation of the four-lepton and tri-lepton signatures at 13 (14) TeV LHC. While both signatures are found to be promising at all benchmark points, the tri-lepton one is even better: it is possible to reach the $5\\sigma$ significance with an integrated lumin...

    Reaching a theoretical accuracy in the prediction of the lightest MSSM Higgs-boson mass, M{sub h}, at the level of the current experimental precision requires the inclusion of momentum-dependent contributions at the two-loop level. Recently two groups presented the two-loop QCD momentum-dependent corrections to M{sub h} (Borowka et al., Eur Phys J C 74(8):2994, 2014; Degrassi et al., Eur Phys J C 75(2):61, 2015), using a hybrid on-shell-DR scheme, with apparently different results. We show that the differences can be traced back to a different renormalization of the top-quark mass, and that the claim in Ref. Degrassi et al. (Eur Phys J C 75(2):61, 2015) of an inconsistency in Ref. Borowka et al. (Eur Phys J C 74(8):2994, 2014) is incorrect. We furthermore compare consistently the results for M{sub h} obtained with the top-quark mass renormalized on-shell and DR. The latter calculation has been added to the FeynHiggs package and can be used to estimate missing higher-order corrections beyond the two-loop level. (orig.)

    In this thesis a search for the neutral Higgs bosons of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) in the h/A/H -> tau_had tau_had decay channel is described. The analysis is based on a sample of proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The data were recorded in 2011 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 4.7 fb^-1. Final states with two hadronic tau-lepton decays requiring either the presence or absence of b-jets are considered and the selection is optimised for Higgs bosons in b-quark associated and gluon-fusion production. No statistically significant excess over the expected background is observed and exclusion limits at the 95% confidence level are derived in combination with the h/A/H -> mu mu, h/A/H -> tau_e tau_mu and h/A/H -> tau_lep tau_had decay channels. The exclusion limits are shown for the production cross section of a generic neutral Higgs boson, phi, as a function of the Higgs boson mass and for h/...

    The minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model (MSSM) predicts the existence of new charged and neutral Higgs bosons. The pair creation of these new particles at the multi-TeV + − compact linear collider (CLIC), followed by decays into standard model particles, were simulated along with the corresponding background. High-energy beam–beam effects such as ISR, beamstrahlung and hadronic background were included. We have investigated the possibility of using the ratio between the number of events found in various decay channels to determine the MSSM parameter tan and we have derived the corresponding statistical error from the uncertainties on the measured cross-sections and Higgs boson masses.

    We have explored the possibilities of scenarios with heavy gluinos and light stops in the supersymmetric (SUSY) standard models with extra vector-like multiplets. If we assume the hierarchical structure for soft masses of MSSM scalar fields and extra scalars, the light stop and the observed Higgs boson can be realized. While the stau is the lightest SUSY particle (LSP) in broad parameter space, we have found the neutralino LSP is realized in the case that the non-zero soft parameters for the MSSM Higgs doublets or the non-universal gaugino masses are assumed.

    One-loop contributions of super-partner particles to W-pair production at e/sup +/e/sup -/ collision are discussed in the MSSM. To obtain trustworthy results we test our calculation using three methods: (1) sum rules among form factors which result from the BRS invariance, (2) the decoupling theorem, (3) the high-energy stability. We examine the corrections taking into account constraints from the direct search experiments and the precision data. The results for the sfermion contributions are presented.

    One-loop contributions of super-partner particles to W-pair production at e{sup +}e{sup -} collision are discussed in the MSSM. To obtain trustworthy results we test our calculation using three methods: (1) sum rules among form factors which result from the BRS invariance, (2) the decoupling theorem, (3) the high-energy stability. We examine the corrections taking into account constraints from the direct search experiments and the precision data. The results for the sfermion contributions are presented. (author)

    The focus of this thesis is on the phenomenology of several non-minimal supersymmetric models in the context of future linear colliders (LCs). Extensions of the minimal supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) may accommodate the observed Higgs boson mass at about 125 GeV in a more natural way than the MSSM, with a richer phenomenology. We consider both F-term extensions of the MSSM, as for instance the non-minimal supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM), as well as D-terms extensions arising at low energies from gauge extended supersymmetric models. The NMSSM offers a solution to the μ-problem with an additional gauge singlet supermultiplet. The enlarged neutralino sector of the NMSSM can be accurately studied at a LC and used to distinguish the model from the MSSM. We show that exploiting the power of the polarised beams of a LC can be used to reconstruct the neutralino and chargino sector and eventually distinguish the NMSSM even considering challenging scenarios that resemble the MSSM. Non-decoupling D-terms extensions of the MSSM can raise the tree-level Higgs mass with respect to the MSSM. This is done through additional contributions to the Higgs quartic potential, effectively generated by an extended gauge group. We study how this can happen and we show how these additional non-decoupling D-terms affect the SM-like Higgs boson couplings to fermions and gauge bosons. We estimate how the deviations from the SM couplings can be spotted at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and at the International Linear Collider (ILC), showing how the ILC would be suitable for the model identication. Since our results prove that a linear collider is a fundamental machine for studying supersymmetry phenomenology at a high level of precision, we argue that also a thorough comprehension of the physics at the interaction point (IP) of a LC is needed. Therefore, we finally consider the possibility of observing intense electromagnetic field effects and nonlinear quantum electrodynamics

    We present rules for determining the number of physical parameters in models with exact flavor symmetries. In such models the total number of parameters (physical and unphysical) needed to described a matrix is less than in a model without the symmetries. Several toy examples are studied in order to demonstrate the rules. The use of global symmetries in studying the minimally supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) is examined.

    We use a new weak basis invariant approach to classify all the observable phases in any extension of the Standard Model (SM). We apply this formalism to determine the invariant CP phases in a simplified version of the Minimal Supersymmetric SM with only three non-trivial flavour structures. We propose four experimental measures to fix completely all the observable phases in the model. After these phases have been determined from experiment, we are able to make predictions on any other CP-violating observable in the theory, much in the same way as in the Standard Model all CP-violation observables are proportional to the Jarlskog invariant.

    The minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model (MSSM) predicts the existence of new charged and neutral Higgs bosons. The pair creation of these new particles at the multi-TeV + - compact linear collider (CLIC), followed by decays into standard model particles, were simulated along with the corresponding background. High-energy beam-beam effects such as ISR, beamstrahlung and hadronic background were included. We have investigated the possibility of using the ratio between the number of events found in various decay channels to determine the MSSM parameter tan and we have derived the corresponding statistical error from the uncertainties on the measured cross-sections and Higgs boson masses.

    Three dark matter direct detection experiments have reported possible signals which can be interpreted as due to the interaction of light WIMPs with large scattering cross section. In this paper we investigate the viability of SUSY scenarios with light neutralino using high statistics scans in the pMSSM. We identify several scenarios which give rise to very light neutralinos with large direct detection scattering cross sections. We apply constraints from dark matter relic density, direct detection, indirect detection, as well as flavour physics, electroweak precision tests, LEP and Tevatron limits, LHC limits on SUSY, Higgs and monojet searches. In particular we require the Higgs boson mass to be in the range 122.5MSSM solutions with a light neutralino and an almost degenerate lightest scalar bottom quark emerge as the scenario in agreement with all these constraints. We study their characteristics in relation to the LHC missing E{sub T} searches. (orig.)

    The region of low neutralino masses as low as (5-10) GeV has attracted attention recently due to the possibility of excess events above background in dark matter detectors. An analysis of spin independent neutralino-proton cross sections $\\SI$ which includes this low mass region is given. The analysis is done in MSSM with radiative electroweak symmetry breaking (REWSB). It is found that cross sections as large as $10^{-40}$ cm$^2$ can be accommodated in MSSM within the REWSB framework. However, inclusion of sparticle mass limits from current experiments, as well as lower limits on the Higgs searches from the Tevatron, and the current experimental upper limit on $B_s\\to \\mu^+\\mu^-$ significantly limit the allowed parameter space reducing $\\SI$ to lie below $\\sim 10^{-41}$cm$^2$ or even lower for neutralino masses around 10 GeV. These cross sections are an order of magnitude lower than the cross sections needed to explain the reported data in the recent dark matter experiments in the low neutralino mass region.

    Soft supersymmetry-breaking terms provide a wealth of new potential sources of flavour violation, which lead to very tight constraints from precision experiments. This has posed a challenge to construct flavour models to both explain the structure of the Standard Model Yukawa couplings and how their consequent predictions for patterns in the soft supersymmetry-breaking terms do not violate these constraints. While such models have been studied in great detail, the impact of flavour violating soft terms on the Higgs mass at the two-loop level has been assumed to be small or negligible. In this letter, we show that large flavour violation in the up-squark sector can give a positive or negative shift to the SM-like Higgs of several GeV, without being in conflict with any other observation. We investigate in which regions of the parameter space these effects can be expected.

    Soft supersymmetry-breaking terms provide a wealth of new potential sources of flavour violation, which are tightly constrained by precision experiments. This has posed a challenge to construct flavour models which both explain the structure of the Standard Model Yukawa couplings and also predict soft-breaking patterns that are compatible with these constraints. While such models have been studied in great detail, the impact of flavour violating soft terms on the Higgs mass at the two-loop level has been assumed to be small or negligible. In this letter, we show that large flavour violation in the up-squark sector can give a positive or negative mass shift to the SM-like Higgs of several GeV, without being in conflict with other observations. We investigate in which regions of the parameter space these effects can be expected.

    Supersymmetric models provide many new complex phases which lead to CP violating effects in collider experiments. As an example, CP-sensitive triple product asymmetries in neutralino production and subsequent leptonic two-body decays are studied within the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. A full ILD detector simulation has been performed at a center of mass energy of 500GeV, including the relevant Standard Model background processes, a realistic beam energy spectrum, beam backgrounds and a beam polarization of 80% and -60% for the electron and positron beams, respectively. Assuming an integrated luminosity of 500fb-1 collected by the experiment and the performance of the current ILD detector, a relative measurement accuracy of 10% for the CP-sensitive asymmetry can be achieved in the chosen scenario.

    The CDF and D0 collaborations have recently reported a large forward-backward asymmetry in the ttbar system which deviates from the next to-leading order QCD standard model prediction. We study the asymmetry in the ttbar system within the framework of singlet extensions of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. For this purpose, we introduce non-renormalizable couplings between first and third generation of quarks to scalars. We analyze two limiting cases of the model, characterized by the size of the supersymmetric mass for the singlet superfield. We study both the small and large limits of this mass parameter. We find that in the region of small singlet supersymmetric mass we can obtain a large asymmetry while being consistent with limits on the ttbar production cross section. These results are also consistent with constraints arising from flavor physics, quark masses and top quark decays.

  16. Higgs Mass and Muon $g-2$ Anomaly in MSSM with Gauge-Gravity hybrid Mediation

    We propose a gauge mediation model with split messengers to explain the muon $g-2$ anomaly in consistent with $125$ GeV higgs mass requirement. The special properties is that all of color sparticles masses fall into several TeV region due to the large messenger splitting which are well beyond the scope of current LHC Run II limits. Meanwhile, sleptons and electroweakinos are light enough to retain advantages of electroweak supersymmetry. This type of spectrum can be realized by introducing hybrid model which combines gauge and gravity mediation. In addition, this mechanism is also responsible for solving tachyonic problem of slepton sector.

    A search for the neutral Higgs bosons predicted by the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) is reported. The analysis is performed on data from proton--proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of $8 TeV$ collected with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The samples used for this search were collected in 2012 and correspond to integrated luminosities in the range 19.5 - 20.3 fb$^{-1}$. The MSSM Higgs bosons are searched for in the $\\tau\\tau$ final state. No significant excess over the expected background is observed, and exclusion limit
