Supersymmetry Phenomenology

The discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) provides compelling evidence that the Higgs mechanism is responsible for the generation of elementary particle masses in the Standard Model (SM). An important next question is to ascertain the nature of this new particle by measuring its properties and couplings. A well-motivated possibility is to identify the new resonance with the lightest Higgs boson in the supersymmetric standard model.

Radiative Symmetry Breaking of the Minimal Left-Right Symmetric Model

Under the assumption of classical conformal invariance, we study the Coleman-Weinberg symmetry breaking mechanism in the minimal left-right symmetric model. This model is attractive as it provides a natural framework for small neutrino masses and the …
