Whither SUSY?

Graham Ross (Oxford University)


To date the LHC has not found evidence for predicted SUSY states. Moreover the candidate Higgs mass lies above the preferred range of MSSM. The non-observation may indicate strong correlations between soft SUSY breaking terms. Well-motivated correlations can significantly increase the mass of SUSY states, and the Higgs mass may be raised in extensions of MSSM. I will discuss these extensions and possible tests at LHC in the SUSY and Higgs sectors,and in dark matter searches. Finally I will discuss the implications of a 125 GeV Higgs.
