    WITS Node Seminar: Dr. Moritz McGarrie (University of the Witwatersrand)

    The National Institute for Theoretical Physics, and the Centre for Theoretical Physics, School of Physics, would like to invite to its coming talk in the theoretical physics seminar series, entitled:

    "SUSY model building for a 126GeV Higgs"

    to be presented by Dr. Moritz McGarrie (University of the Witwatersrand)

    Abstract: This talk will explore two possible models which can achieve the correct Higgs mass and still allow for sparticles accessible to the LHC's reach. In the first example we built two tailor made spectrum generators to analyse a Higgs extension (non decoupled D-terms) of the MSSM, based on quiver gauge theories. In the second we use the NMSSM to obtain the correct Higgs mass and then explore flavour-gauge mediation to obtain light 3rd generation squarks, whilst keeping the 1st and 2nd generation above exclusions. Both models are also realisable through magnetic SQCD. I will hopefully also discuss further avenues for model building opportunities in the context of Natural SUSY.

    Date: Tuesday, 11th February 2014
    Venue: Frank Nabarro Lecture Theatre P216
    Time: 13.20 - 14.10
