RECENT NEWS

new!!! October 31, 2014: Version 2 of the paper entitled Complementarity Between Non-Standard Higgs Searches and Precision Higgs Measurements in the MSSM was re-posted today on the arXiv. The revised version adds a short discussion on possible symmetries that may govern the alignment limit of the two-Higgs doublet model, in contrast to the case of the MSSM where the alignment limit, if present, is the result of an accidental cancellation of tree-level and loop-level contributions. A link to the revised paper can be found in Section II of this website.

October 29, 2014: The San Francisco Giants win the World Series in the deciding Game 7, with a 3--2 win over the Kansas City Royals. What an epic game! Three hours of high drama and a once in a lifetime pitching performance by Madison Bumgarner to earn a five inning save.

October 21, 2014: My paper in collaboration with Marcela Carena, Ian Low, Nausheen Shah and Carlos Wagner entitled Complementarity Between Non-Standard Higgs Searches and Precision Higgs Measurements in the MSSM was posted today on the arXiv. A link to this paper in Section II of this website.

This paper examines the conventional wisdom that the constraints of the precision Higgs data implies that additional non Standard Model (SM)--like Higgs bosons of the MSSM should be heavy, with masses larger than about 400 GeV. We demonstrate that this conclusion does not hold when the theory approaches the conditions for "alignment independent of decoupling", where the lightest CP-even Higgs boson has SM-like tree-level couplings to fermions and gauge bosons, independently of the non-standard Higgs boson masses. We find that precision Higgs measurements and direct searches are complementary, and may soon be able to probe the region of non-SM-like Higgs boson with masses below the top quark pair mass threshold of 350 GeV and low to moderate values of tan β.

September 25, 2014: My talk entitled Constraints on the alignment limit of the MSSM Higgs sector, given at the IFT Program on Physics Challenges in the face of LHC-14 at the Instituto de Fisica Teórica in Madrid, Spain has been posted to Section VII of this website.

June 3, 2014: My paper in collaboration with Pedro Ferreira, Rui Santos and John Gunion, entitled Probing wrong-sign Yukawa couplings at the LHC and a future linear collider was published today in Physical Review D. This paper discusses the possibility that all couplings of the recently discovered Higgs boson are close to their Standard Model values in magnitude, but the overall sign of Higgs coupling to down-type fermions is reversed as compared to its Standard Model value. Prospects for detecting this wrong-sign Yukawa coupling at the LHC and ILC are investigated. A link to this paper can be found in Section II of the academic 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) TeV-scale supersymmetry as a framework for incorporating a weakly-coupled 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 low-energy 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 two-Higgs 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 basis-independent treatment of the 2HDM. Recently, I have focused on the relevance of the so-called decoupling and alignment limits of the 2HDM in which one of scalars closely resembles the SM Higgs boson. The basis-independent 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.

  3. Webpage for Two-component 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) 1995--1996 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 Re-Entry, is sponsored by the STARS organization on campus, which provides support and counseling for returning (or re-entry) students to campus. You can follow our season exploits on the Re-Entry Team Webpage.
