Prospects for Higgs searches at the Tevatron and LHC in the MSSM with explicit CP violation.
Abstract
We analyze the Tevatron and Large Hadron Collider (LHC) reach for the Higgs sector of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) in the presence of explicit CP violation. Using the most recent studies from the Tevatron and LHC collaborations, we examine the CPX benchmark scenario for a range of CPviolating phases in the soft trilinear and gluino mass terms and compute the exclusion/discovery potentials for each collider on the (MH+,tan{beta}) plane. Projected results from standard model (SM)like, nonstandard, and charged Higgs searches are combined to maximize the statistical significance. We exhibit complementarity between the SMlike Higgs searches at the LHC with low luminosity and the Tevatron, and estimate the combined reach of the two colliders in the early phase of LHC running.

Prospects for MSSM Higgs searches at the Fermilab Tevatron.
We analyze the Tevatron reach for neutral Higgs bosons in the minimal supersymmetric standard model, using current exclusion limits on the standard model Higgs. We study four common benchmark scenarios for the soft supersymmetrybreaking parameters of the minimal supersymmetric standard model, including cases where the Higgs decays differ significantly from the standard model, and provide projections for the improvements in luminosity and efficiency required for the Tevatron to probe sizeable regions of the (m{sub A},tan{beta}) plane.

Implications of direct dark matter searches for MSSM Higgs searches at the Tevatron
Searches for the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) Higgs bosons are among the most promising channels for exploring new physics at the Tevatron. In particular, interesting regions of large tan {beta} and small m{sub A} are probed by searches for heavy neutral Higgs bosons, A and H, when they decay to {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup } and b{bar b}. At the same time, direct searches for dark matter, such as CDMS, attempt to observe neutralino dark matter particles scattering elastically off nuclei. This can occur through tchannel Higgs exchange, which has a large cross section in the case of large tan {beta}more » 
CPsuperH2.O : an improved computational tool for Higgs physics in the MSSM with explicit CP violation.
We describe the Fortran code CPsuperH2.0, which contains several improvements and extensions of its predecessor CPsuperH. It implements improved calculations of the Higgsboson pole masses, notably a full treatment of the 4 x 4 neutral Higgs propagator matrix including the Goldstone boson and a more complete treatment of threshold effects in selfenergies and Yukawa couplings, improved treatments of twobody Higgs decays, some important threebody decays, and twoloop Higgsmediated contributions to electric dipole moments. CPsuperH2.0 also implements an integrated treatment of several Bmeson observables, including the branching ratios of B{sub s} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup }, B{sub d} {yields} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup },more »
