LHC: Higgs mass vs SUSY

The LHC Shows the Way workshop rolls on, looking at the implications of the Higgs at 125-126 GeV for supersymmetry. I live blog, slowly. Where are the sparticles. Coloured supersymmetric partners, the quark and gluon supersymmetric partners, must be massive – greater than ~ 1,000 GeV in some natural implementation of supersymmetry, natch, clever theorists…

linkedy links I

time for all new linkedy links here at the new digs Quantum Frontiers – a new blog from the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter, with kickoff by John Preskill hisself. Question of the day: explain quantum mechanics in five words My attempt: Probability Amplitudes, Observables don’t Commute Good to know John still does khakis…

The Ten Commandments

In which we remind people of the Ten Commandments of the God Particle. Now with added footnotes. I I am the Higgs. Thou shalt have no other Higgs before me.1 II Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in…

Higgsapalooza

In the beginning there was light. Sort of. When energies were high enough, particles were effectively massless and the universe was a nice seething mess of particle/anti-particle creation and annihilation. As the universe cools, a symmtery, the Electroweak symmetry breaks, a field condenses out, and interesting stuff starts happening. Hence we get chemistry, and the…
