Prospects and Challenges in Flavored GMSB

by Mr. Iftah Galon (Technion)

Thursday, 18 April 2013 from to (Europe/Zurich)
at CERN ( 4-2-011 - TH common room )
In this talk I will discuss recent work (arXiv:1209.4904) on Flavored  
Gauge Mediation (FGM) models.
The messenger-matter couplings of FGM can generate substantial stop  
mixing and new contributions to the stop masses which can lead to  
Higgs masses of around 126 GeV with collider accessible superpartners.  
In addition, these new couplings induce Higgs-messenger kinetic  
mixings which affect the calculation of soft-terms by analytic  
continuation which now requires careful matching at the messenger  
scale. Flavor constraints in FGM are obeyed by supersymmetric  
alignment. I will discuss how this differs from alignment models and  
how it could be used.
