Spontaneous charge breaking in the NMSSM: dangerous or not?

We investigate the impact of charge-breaking minima on the vacuum stability of the NMSSM. We concentrate on the case of vanishing A-terms in the sfermion sector, i.e. the only potentially dangerous sources of charge breaking are vacuum expectation values of the charged Higgs fields. We find that, in contrast to Two-Higgs-Doublet Models like the MSSM, at both tree and loop level ...

Perspectives for detecting lepton flavour violation in left-right symmetric models

We investigate lepton flavour violation in a class of minimal left-right symmetric models where the left-right symmetry is broken by triplet scalars. In this context we present a method to consistently calculate the triplet-Yukawa couplings which takes into account the experimental data while simultaneously respecting the underlying symmetries. Analysing various scenarios, we then ...

Precision tools and models to narrow in on the 750 GeV diphoton resonance

The hints for a new resonance at 750 GeV from ATLAS and CMS have triggered a significant amount of attention. Since the simplest extensions of the standard model cannot accommodate the observation, many alternatives have been considered to explain the excess. Here we focus on several proposed renormalisable weakly-coupled models and revisit results given in the literature. We point ...

A constrained supersymmetric left-right model

We present a supersymmetric left-right model which predicts gauge coupling unification close to the string scale and extra vector bosons at the TeV scale. The subtleties in constructing a model which is in agreement with the measured quark masses and mixing for such a low left-right breaking scale are discussed. It is shown that in the constrained version of this model radiative ...

Doubly-charged Higgs and vacuum stability in left-right supersymmetry

We present an analysis of supersymmetric left-right symmetric models with Higgs fields lying in the adjoint representation of SU(2) R . These models feature a doubly-charged Higgs boson which gets its mass only at the loop level. We present, for the first time, a complete one-loop calculation of this mass and show that contributions that have been neglected so far can shift it by a ...
