Challenges for MSSM Higgs searches at hadron colliders
Abstract
In this article we analyze the impact of Bphysics and Higgs physics at LEP on standard and nonstandard Higgs bosons searches at the Tevatron and the LHC, within the framework of minimal flavor violating supersymmetric models. The Bphysics constraints we consider come from the experimental measurements of the rare Bdecays b {yields} s{gamma} and B{sub u} {yields} {tau}{nu} and the experimental limit on the B{sub s} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup } branching ratio. We show that these constraints are severe for large values of the trilinear soft breaking parameter A{sub t}, rendering the nonstandard Higgs searches at hadron colliders less promising. On the contrary these bounds are relaxed for small values of A{sub t} and large values of the Higgsino mass parameter {mu}, enhancing the prospects for the direct detection of nonstandard Higgs bosons at both colliders. We also consider the available ATLAS and CMS projected sensitivities in the standard model Higgs search channels, and we discuss the LHC's ability in probing the whole MSSM parameter space. In addition we also consider the expected Tevatron collider sensitivities in the standard model Higgs h {yields} b{bar b} channel to show that it may be able to find 3 {sigma} evidence in themore »

Challenges for MSSM Higgs boson searches at hadron colliders
In this article we analyze the impact of B physics and Higgs physics at LEP on standard and nonstandard Higgs bosons searches at the Tevatron and the LHC, within the framework of minimal flavor violating supersymmetric models. The Bphysics constraints we consider come from the experimental measurements of the rare B decays b{yields}s{gamma} and B{sub u}{yields}{tau}{nu} and the experimental limit on the B{sub s}{yields}{mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup } branching ratio. We show that these constraints are severe for large values of the trilinear soft breaking parameter A{sub t}, rendering the nonstandard Higgs searches at hadron colliders less promising.

Distributions for MSSM Higgs boson+jet production at hadron colliders
We present pseudorapidity and transversemomentum distributions for the cross section for the production of the lightest neutral Higgs boson in association with a highp{sub T} hadronic jet, calculated in the framework of the minimal supersymmetric standard model. We discuss the theoretical predictions for the differential cross sections at the CERN Large Hadron Collider and the Fermilab Tevatron for the most common benchmark scenarios. 
Deciphering the MSSM Higgs mass at future hadron colliders
Here, future hadron colliders will have a remarkable capacity to discover massive new particles, but their capabilities for precision measurements of couplings that can reveal underlying mechanisms have received less study. In this work we study the capability of future hadron colliders to shed light on a precise, focused question: is the higgs mass of 125 GeV explained by the MSSM? If supersymmetry is realized near the TeV scale, a future hadron collider could produce huge numbers of gluinos and electroweakinos. We explore whether precision measurements of their properties could allow inference of the scalar masses and tan β withmore »
