A Higgs but no sparticles yet: what it means for the (p)MSSM
Speaker(s): Ahmed Ismail
Abstract: The phenomenological Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (pMSSM) provides a broad perspective on supersymmetric phenomenology. We have generated two large sets of pMSSM models with neutralino and gravitino LSPs, with sparticle masses extending up to 4 TeV. In this talk, I will discuss the implications of searches for supersymmetry and the Higgs, with particular attention to naturalness. In particular, we find that while sparticle spectra with moderately light stops are still allowed, such stops are difficult to find experimentally because of a wide array of possible cascade decays.
