  • In models with an extended Higgs sector there exists an alignment limit, in which the lightest CP-even Higgs boson mimics the Standard Model Higgs. The alignment limit is commonly associated with the decoupling limit, where all non-standard scalars are significantly heavier than the Z boson. However, alignment can occur irrespective of the mass scale of the rest of the Higgs sector. In this work we discuss the general conditions that lead to “alignment without decoupling”, therefore allowing for the existence of additional non-standard Higgs bosons at the weak scale. The values of tan β for which this happens are derivedmore » in terms of the effective Higgs quartic couplings in general two-Higgs-doublet models as well as in supersymmetric theories, including the MSSM and the NMSSM. In addition, we study the information encoded in the variations of the SM Higgs-fermion couplings to explore regions in the m A – tan β parameter space.« less
  • We calculate the full one-loop electroweak (FEW) corrections to H{sup -}{yields}{chi}-tilde{sub i}{sup 0}{chi}-tilde{sub 1}{sup -} in the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM), and compare with the leading order (LO) corrections including the loops of the (s)quarks only in the third generation and the complete leading order (CLO) corrections including the loops of the (s)quarks in all three generations. We find that the magnitudes of the FEW corrections can be larger than 10% for tan{beta}>30. Moreover, comparing with the FEW corrections, both of the LO and the CLO corrections are negligibly small for mode 1 (H{sup -}{yields}{chi}-tilde{sub 1}{sup 0}{chi}-tilde{sub 1}{sup -})more » when tan{beta}<5, and for mode 2 (H{sup -}{yields}{chi}-tilde{sub 2}{sup 0}{chi}-tilde{sub 1}{sup -}) when tan{beta}>45, respectively, since there are not enhancements from the Yukawa couplings. We also calculate the FEW corrections in the minimal supergravity scenario, where the FEW corrections can be larger than the LO and the CLO corrections by more than 60% and 50%, respectively.« less
  • We give an extensive description of the renormalization of the Higgs sector of the minimal supersymmetric model in sloops. sloops is an automatized code for the computation of one-loop processes in the MSSM. In this paper, the first in a series, we study in detail the nongauge invariance of some definitions of tan{beta}. We rely on a general nonlinear gauge-fixing constraint to make the gauge parameter dependence of different schemes for tan{beta} explicit at one loop. In so doing, we update, within these general gauges, an important Ward-Slavnov-Taylor identity on the mixing between the pseudoscalar Higgs, A{sup 0}, and Z{supmore » 0}. We then compare the tan{beta} scheme dependence of a few observables. We find that the best tan{beta} scheme is the one based on the decay A{sup 0}{yields}{tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -} because of its gauge invariance, because it is unambiguously defined from a physical observable, and because it is numerically stable. The oft used DR scheme performs almost as well on the last count, but is usually defined from nongauge-invariant quantities in the Higgs sector. The use of the heavier scalar Higgs mass in lieu of tan{beta}, though related to a physical parameter, induces radiative corrections that are too large in many instances, and is therefore not recommended.« less
