  • In models with supersymmetry breaking by boundary conditions on an extra-dimension it is possible to relate in a quantitative natural way the Fermi scale to the size of the extra-dimension. We analyze in detail the compatibility of such models with ElectroWeak Precision Tests.
  • We calculate the O({alpha}{sub ew}m{sub t(b)}{sup 2}/m{sub W}{sup 2}) and O({alpha}{sub ew}m{sub t(b)}{sup 4}/m{sub W}{sup 4}) supersymmetric electroweak corrections to the cross section for charged Higgs boson production in association with a top quark at the Fermilab Tevatron and the CERN large hadron collider (LHC). These corrections arise from the quantum effects which are induced by potentially large Yukawa couplings from the Higgs sector and the chargino-top-quark- (bottom-quark-) bottom-squark (top-squark) couplings, neutralino-top-quark- (bottom-quark-) top-squark (bottom-squark) couplings and charged Higgs-boson-top-squark-bottom-squark couplings. They can decrease or increase the cross section depending on tan {beta} but are not very sensitive to the massmore » of the charged Higgs boson for high tan {beta}. At low tan {beta}(=2) the corrections decrease the total cross sections significantly, exceeding -12% for m{sub H{sup {+-}} below 300 GeV at both the Tevatron and the LHC, but for m{sub H{sup {+-}}}>300 GeV the corrections become very small at the LHC. For high tan {beta}(=10,30) these corrections can decrease or increase the total cross sections, and the magnitude of the corrections are at most a few percent at both the Tevatron and the LHC.

  • We consider QCD tt{gamma} and ttZ production at hadron colliders as a tool to measure the tt{gamma} and ttZ couplings. At the Tevatron it may be possible to perform a first, albeit not very precise, test of the tt{gamma} vector and axial vector couplings in tt{gamma} production, provided that more than 5 fb{sup -1} of integrated luminosity are accumulated. The ttZ cross section at the Tevatron is too small to be observable. At the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) it will be possible to probe the tt{gamma} couplings at the few-percent level, which approaches the precision which one hopes tomore » achieve with a next-generation e{sup +}e{sup -} linear collider. The LHC's capability of associated QCD ttV (V={gamma},Z) production has the added advantage that the tt{gamma} and ttZ couplings are not entangled. For an integrated luminosity of 300 fb{sup -1}, the ttZ vector (axial vector) coupling can be determined with an uncertainty of 45-85% (15-20%), whereas the dimension-five dipole form factors can be measured with a precision of 50-55%. The achievable limits improve typically by a factor of 2-3 for the luminosity-upgraded (3 ab{sup -1}) LHC.« less
