Model Building Post-Higgs
- Sam Rowley (University of Southampton)
I will give an introduction to modular symmetries and how
they can be interpreted as a family symmetry. Afterwards, I
will focus on an SU(5) model in 6d where the two extra dimensions are
compactified on a T_2/Z_2 orbifold, with a twist angle of \omega=ei2pi/3. Such construction suggests an underlying modular A_4 symmetry,leading to an effective \mu-\tau reflection symmetry at low...
The LHC has found a Higgs boson compatible with the Standard Model Higgs but no other particles despite intesive searches. Also dark matter direct detection experiments have reached the sensitivity to test WIMP candidates. I shall give a short introduction of left-right supersymmetry and then discuss what have we learned from (i) Higgs measurements, (ii) BSM searches and (iii) direct detection...
