If SUSY is discovered at the LHC, the task will immediately turn to
trying to determine the model of SUSY breaking. We take a Mixed
Modulus-Anomaly Mediated SUSY Breaking (MMAMSB) model with very similar LHC phenomenology to the more conventionally studied CMSSM. We then study whether the models can be distinguished and measured. If we only fit to the various mass edges and mass end-points...

SUSY: models

We analyze the inclusion of the neutrinos in the MSSM by gauging them under U(1)_{B-L}. We then solve the RGE in order to find the sparticle mass spectrum and the breaking scale of U(1)_{B-L}. We also study the possibility to generate neutrino masses due to a double see-saw mechanism, which is naturally implemented on this groud, and perform an analysis to determine the DM relic density...

Dark matter: models

We construct an explicit, TeV-scale model of decaying dark matter in which the approximate stability of the dark matter candidate is a consequence of a global symmetry that is broken only by instanton-induced operators generated by a non-Abelian dark gauge group. The dominant dark matter decay channels are to standard model leptons. Annihilation of the dark matter to standard model states...

SUSY: models

We study the strong correlations between the parameters of the popular
Constrained Minimal Supersymmetric Model (CMSSM) with four independent
parameters. Knowing these correlations allows to develop a multi-step
fitting procedure, which efficiently determines the allowed parameter
space by simply minimizing the chi^2 in multiple steps, i.e. first the
parameters with the highest...

Models with Universal Extra Dimensions provide one of the simplest extra dimensional extensions of the Standard Model which incorporates a dark matter candidate and can provide a rich LHC phenomenology which strongly resembles SUSY signals. The minimal UED Kaluza Klein Spectrum can be modified in two ways: by operators which are localized at the orbifold fixed points (non-minimal UED) or by...

We describe the novel higgs sector phenomenology of supersymmetric models that include a 4-th generation of chiral fermions. In particular we work in a 4-generation version of the MSSM and find that the LHC signatures expected from the higgs sector of these models are in stark contrast with those expected from the usual 3-generation MSSM.

SUSY: models

A model is proposed which dynamically breaks SUSY,
mediates the SUSY breaking via gauge mediation,
and also contains a dark matter candidate.
There is only one mass parameter in the model, that is, the messenger mass.

We show, that it is possible to get constructive interference between SM and SUSY contributions in the B → τν amplitude by choosing a negative and large μ. We demonstrate how the SUSY spectrum will have to be chosen and that is is possible to fulfill all other experimental constraints especially the ones coming b → sγ and gμ.

A number of searches for massive long-lived particles have been performed with early LHC data. While existing ATLAS and CMS limits in R-hadron production cross sections have been interpreted as metastable squark and gluino mass limits, in the present work they are also interpreted as limits in couplings within models of leptoquarks, R-parity violating supersymmetry and split supersymmetry. By...

New neutral gauge bosons (Z') are common in many new models of BSM physics. The LHC may be able to push the direct discovery limits for a neutral resonance (Z', R-parity violating sneutrino, RS graviton) above 3 TeV, for a 14 TeV run, and may even be able to distinguish the spin and model of the resonance up to a mass of several TeV. This talk discusses a number of observables for...

It is possible that there are additional vector-like generations where the quarks have mass terms that do not originate from weak symmetry breaking, but the leptons only get mass through weak symmetry breaking. We discuss the impact that the new leptons have on Higgs boson decay branching ratios and on the range of allowed Higgs masses in such a model. We find that if the fourth generation...

Dark matter: models

We study theoretical implications of direct dark matter searches in the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM). We assume that no accidental cancellations occur in the spin-independent elastic neutralino-quark scattering cross section, but do not impose any relations among the weak-scale MSSM parameters. We show that direct detection cross section below $10^-44 cm^2 requires the lightest...

The branching ratio BR(B -> X_s gamma) is a sensitive probe for physics beyond the SM and thus an important constraint for parameter fits of SUSY models.
It is therefore highly important to have a good assessment of theoretical and computational uncertainties, including the differences in the implementations and/or approximations used in public computational tools.
We perform a detailed...

We present a new Little Higgs model, motivated by the deconstruction of a five- dimensional gauge-Higgs model. The approximate global symmetry is SO(5) x SO(5), breaking to SO(5), with a gauged subgroup of SU(2) x SU(2) x SU(2) x U(1), breaking to SU(2)L x U(1)Y. Radiative corrections produce an additional small vacuum misalignment, breaking the electroweak symmetry down to U(1)em. Features of...

Intensity frontier: models

The asymmetric dark matter scenario is known to give an interesting
solution for the cosmic coincidence problem between baryon and dark
matter densities. In the scenario, the dark matter asymmetry, which is
translated to the dark matter density in the present universe, is
transferred from the B-L asymmetry generated in the early universe. On
the other hand, the generation of the B-L...
