Physics Colloquium

"Is Nature natural?: the test case of SUSY"

Presented by George Redlinger, Brookhaven National Laboratory

Tuesday, April 24, 2012, 3:30 pm — Hamilton Seminar Room, Bldg. 555

One of the arguments for new physics at the LHC is based on the need for some mechanism to protect the Higgs boson mass from growing to a large value due to radiative corrections. Supersymmetry (SUSY) is a prime candidate for one such mechanism. With possible hints of the Higgs boson at the LHC, but the absence so far of any evidence for new physics, the subject of "naturalness" takes on renewed urgency. This talk will review the latest status of searches for SUSY at the LHC and the prospects for SUSY to answer the question: is Nature natural?
