Description

Despite the success of the Standard Model (SM), which provides a superb description of a wide range of experimental particle physics data, the dynamics responsible for electroweak symmetry breaking is still unknown. Its elucidation remains one of the primary goals of future high energy physics experimentation. Present day global fits to precision electroweak data based on the Standard Model favor the existence of a weakly-interacting scalar Higgs boson, which is a remnant of elementary scalar dynamics that drives electroweak symmetry breaking. The only known viable theoretical framework incorporating light elementary scalar fields employs low-energy supersymmetry, where the scale of supersymmetry ... continued below

Description

Despite the success of the Standard Model (SM), which provides a superb description of a wide range of experimental particle physics data, the dynamics responsible for electroweak symmetry breaking is still unknown. Its elucidation remains one of the primary goals of future high energy physics experimentation. Present day global fits to precision electroweak data based on the Standard Model favor the existence of a weakly-interacting scalar Higgs boson, which is a remnant of elementary scalar dynamics that drives electroweak symmetry breaking. The only known viable theoretical framework incorporating light elementary scalar fields employs low-energy supersymmetry, where the scale of supersymmetry breaking is {Omicron} (1 TeV). The Higgs sector of the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM) is of particular interest because it predicts the existence of a light CP-even neutral Higgs boson with a mass below about 130 GeV. Moreover, over a significant portion of the MSSM parameter space, the properties of this scalar are indistinguishable from those of the SM Higgs boson.
