RECENT NEWS
August 3, 2016: My paper in collaboration with Philip Bechtle, Sven Heinemeyer, Tim Stefaniak, Oscar Stål, Georg Weiglein, and Lisa Zeune entitled The Light and Heavy Higgs Interpretation of the MSSM was posted today on the arXiv. A link to this paper can be found in Section II of this website.
In this paper, we performed a parameter scan of the eightparameter pMSSM taking into account the experimental Higgs boson results from Run I of the LHC as well as additional lowenergy observables. We investigated various MSSM interpretations of the Higgs signal at 125 GeV, in which the observed Higgs boson is identified with either the lightest or heaviest CPeven Higgs scalar of the MSSM. We identified regions close to the alignment limit without decoupling, in which the other Higgs scalars of the MSSM can also be light, offering good prospects for upcoming LHC searches and searches at future colliders.
July 26, 2016: My paper in collaboration with Michael Dine, Patrick Draper and Laurel Stephenson Haskins entitled Perturbation Theory in Supersymmetric QED: Infrared Divergences and Gauge Invariance was posted today on the arXiv. A link to this paper can be found in Section II of this website.
In this paper, we investigated some aspects of the perturbation theory in N=1 supersymmetric gauge theories with massive charged matter. In general gauges, infrared divergences and nonlocal behavior arise in 1PI diagrams, associated with a 1/k^{4} term in the propagator for the vector superfield. We have examined this structure in supersymmetric QED. The IR divergences are gaugedependent and must cancel in physical quantities like the electron pole mass. However, this cancellation takes place in a nontrivial way, amounting to a reorganization of the perturbative series from powers of e^{2} to powers of e (where e is the γe^{+}e^{} coupling constant).
July 6, 2016: My talk entitled Extended Higgs sectors and the alignment limit, given at the 24rd International Conference on Supersymmetry and Unification of Fundamental Interactions (SUSY 2016) has been posted to Section VII of this website.
July 1, 2016: Today I gave the last of three lectures entitled SM and SUSY Higgs at preSUSY 2016 in Melbourne, Australia. Links to the PDF slides of the three lectures can be found in Section VII of this website.
June 21, 2016: My paper in collaboration with Patrick Draper and Josh Ruderman entitled Partially Natural Two Higgs Doublet Models was published today in the Journal of High Energy Physics (JHEP). This paper examines the number of independent finetunings required in the two Higgs doublet model (2HDM) and demonstrates under what circumstances the number of finetunings of the 2HDM can be reduced to the one fine tuning that sets the electroweak scale in the Standard Model. A link to this paper can be found in Section II of this website.
June 15, 2016: Today I gave the last of four lectures entitled Supersymmetric Theory and Models at the 2016 Theoretical Advanced Study Institute (TASI 2016) in Boulder, CO. Links to the PDF slides of the four lectures can be found in Section VII of this website.
June 6, 2016: The erratum to my paper in collaboration with Oscal Stål entitled New LHC Benchmarks for the CPconserving TwoHiggsDoublet Model was published today in European Physical Journal C. A link to this erratum can be found in Section II of this website.
June 3, 2016:
The ReEntry softball team met up with the Might Shmucks in the
Championship game of the UCSC Friday late afternoon coed softball
league. ReEntry came back from an eight run deficit to take a one
run lead in the penultimate inning. After giving up two runs in the
top of the last inning, ReEntry attempted one last comeback. But,
with the tying and winning runs on base, ReEntry was unable to
produce the game winning hit. The result was a one run loss in the
Championship game for the third time since the fall of 2012. For
further details, check out the
UCSC Coed
Softball ReEntry Team Webpage.
May 17, 2016: A corrected version of my paper in collaboration with Oscal Stål entitled New LHC Benchmarks for the CPconserving TwoHiggsDoublet Model was uploaded today to the arXiv. A link to this paper can be found in Section II of this website. An official erratum will be published soon in the European Physics Journal C.
May 12, 2016: My paper in collaboration with Patrick Draper and Josh Ruderman entitled Partially Natural Two Higgs Doublet Models was posted today on the arXiv. A link to this paper can be found in Section II of this website.
In this paper, we consider the implications of a discovery of new light fundamental scalars other than the Standard Model Higgs boson, under the assumption that the electroweak symmetry breaking scale is finetuned (perhaps as a result of selection effects). In this latter case, the common wisdom is that all additional elementary scalars must be heavy. We discuss counterexamples where the Higgs boson is light because of finetuning, and a second scalar doublet is light because a discrete symmetry relates its mass to the mass of the Standard Model Higgs boson. Our examples require new vectorlike fermions at the electroweak scale, and the models possess a rich electroweak vacuum structure.
April 18, 2016: My talk entitled Revisiting the 2012 Higgs Wishlist, given at the KITP Workshop on Experimental Challenges for the LHC Run II has been posted to Section VII of this website.
February 29, 2016: My paper in collaboration with Jérémy Bernon, John F. Gunion, Yun Jiang and Sabine Kraml entitled Scrutinizing the Alignment Limit in TwoHiggsDoublet Models. II.: m_{H}=125 GeV was published today in Physical Review D. In this paper, we examine the theoretical structure and the phenomenological implications of the alignment regime of the 2HDM (with and without decoupling) where the couplings of the heavier of the two CPeven Higgs scalars are nearly indistinguishable from those of the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson. Implications for Run 2 at the LHC, including expectations for observing the nonSMlike scalar states, are considered. A link to this paper can be found in Section II of this website.
February 19, 2016: The Particle Data Group (PDG) announces that updated PDG review articles for the 2016 edition of the Review of Particle Physics are now available at http://pdg.lbl.gov/. In particular, check out my updated review of Supersymmetry, Part I (Theory).
February 17, 2016: My paper, in collaboration with Marcela Carena, Ian Low, Nausheen Shah and Carlos Wagner, entitled Alignment limit of the NMSSM Higgs sector was published today in Physical Review D. In this paper, we identify the Higgs alignment region of the NMSSM parameter space where the observed Higgs boson is predicted to have SMlike properties. The alignment limit in the NMSSM leads to a well defined spectrum in the Higgs and Higgsino sectors, and yields a rich and interesting Higgs boson phenomenology that can be tested at the LHC. A link to this paper can be found in Section II of this website.
January 11, 2016: My presentation to Physics 205 can be found in Section V of this website.

I. Research
The basic themes underlying my research program involve the study of: (i) the dynamics responsible for electroweak symmetry breaking; (ii) the theory and phenomenology of Higgs bosons; (iii) TeVscale supersymmetry as a framework for incorporating a weaklycoupled Higgs sector; (iv) the phenomenology of signals for new physics beyond the Standard Model at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and future colliders; and (v) connections of lowenergy phenomena with fundamental scales that lie beyond the TeV scale (e.g. lepton number violation and implications for neutrino masses).
The properties of the newly discovered Higgs boson have profound implications for the dynamics of electroweak symmetry breaking and the possible structure of new physics that may lie beyond the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics. For example, most approaches to physics beyond the SM include extended Higgs sectors. Present Higgs data suggest that the properties of one of the scalars of the Higgs sector (identified with the observed Higgs boson) must have properties that closely approximate that of the SM Higgs boson. This constraint in turn imposes important constraints on any SM extension. The twoHiggs doublet model (2HDM) is a convenient theoretical laboratory for the study of extended Higgs sectors. Indeed, the two doublet extended Higgs sector is a key component of the simplest supersymmetric extension of the SM.
The theoretical structure and phenomenological profile of the 2HDM has attracted much attention in recent years. My recent work has advocated the importance of a basisindependent treatment of the 2HDM. Recently, I have focused on the relevance of the socalled decoupling and alignment limits of the 2HDM in which one of scalars closely resembles the SM Higgs boson. The basisindependent technology provides a very powerful and simple framework for studying and interpreting these limits.
If new physics beyond the SM emerges at the LHC, it will be essential
to develop techniques for measuring new particle interaction strengths at
high energy colliders. By detecting relations among various independent
couplings, one can ascertain underlying symmetries and distinguish
among different theoretical interpretations of the new physics. For example,
with sufficient precision, it will be possible to provide convincing
evidence for or against a supersymmetric interpretation of new
fundamental physics phenomena. A precision Higgs program at the LHC
and at a future collider (such as the proposed International Linear Collider)
can also provide important clues as to what may lie beyond the Standard Model.

Webpage for Twocomponent spinor techniques and Feynman rules for quantum field theory and supersymmetry, maintained by Stephen P. Martin. Both the arXiv version and the Physics Reports version use the spacetime metric signature (+1,1,1,1), as is found for example in the field theory textbooks by Ramond, and by Peskin and Schroeder . However, many people including one of the authors (S.P. Martin) prefer the metric signature (1, +1, +1, +1), as is found for example in the textbooks by Weinberg, by Wess and Bagger, by Srednicki, and in Martin's Supersymmetry Primer. Here is a PDF file of v5 of our review with the (1, +1, +1, +1) metric convention, which should be identical in content in every other respect: DHMspinors_v5.pdf.
The list of known corrections to the Physics Reports version (September 2010) is here: DHM_corr_PhysicsReports.pdf.
The list of known corrections to the arXiv v5 (311 pages, August 2010) is here: DHM_corr_v5.pdf.
Both the (+1,1,1,1) and the (1, +1, +1, +1) metric versions were made
from the single LaTeX file
DHMspinors_v5.tex.
[If you are curious and want to LaTeX this for some reason, you may need
the style files found
here; other packages used should be in most standard LaTeX
distributions.
The choice of metric signature is implemented by simply changing
a single character in the LaTeX file, namely the
argument
of line 16, with \def\signofmetric{0} corresponding
to the (+1,1,1,1) metric and \def\signofmetric{1} to the
(1, +1, +1, +1) metric.]

IX. University Service
Faculty Perceptions of a UCSC Research Environment in Need of Restoration and Improvement, a report by Howard E. Haber and David M. Harrington, sponsored by the UCSC Committee on Research and contributed in May, 1998 to the Advisory Report of the Millennium Committee. [HTML]
University Committee on Research Policy (UCORP) 19951996 Public web page.
Should UC renew its contract with the Department of Energy (DOE) to manage the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory? The following web page documents the 1996 UC systemwide campus debate on this question. A town meeting was held on the UCSC campus on March 7, 1996 to discuss these issues.
X. Extracurricular Activities
Some of the physics students and I play softball in the UCSC intramural coed softball league. The fall season runs from early October to early December, and the spring season runs from early April to early June.
Our team, called ReEntry, is sponsored by the STARS organization on campus, which provides support and counseling for returning (or reentry) students to campus. You can follow our season exploits on the ReEntry Team Webpage.
