A bstractA large enhancement of a factor of 1.5 - 2 in Higgs production and decay in the diphoton channel, with little deviation in the ZZ channel, can only plausibly arise from a loop of new charged particles with large couplings to the Higgs. We show that, allowing only new fermions with marginal interactions at the weak scale, the required Yukawa couplings for a factor of 2 enhancement are so large that the Higgs quartic coupling is pushed to large negative values in the UV, triggering an… 
Singlet neighbors of the Higgs boson
A bstractThe newly discovered resonance at 125 GeV has properties consistent with the Standard Model (SM) Higgs particle, although some production and/or decay channels currently exhibit O(1)
Vacuum stability and Higgs diphoton decays in the MSSM
A bstractCurrent Higgs data at the Large Hadron Collider is compatible with a SM signal at the 2σ level, but the central value of the signal strength in the diphoton channel is enhanced with respect
Precision Higgs measurements: constraints from new oblique corrections
A bstractNew particles entering into self-energies of the Higgs boson would necessarily modify loop-induced couplings of the Higgs, if the new particle carries standard model gauge quantum numbers.
Very light charginos and Higgs decays
A bstractWe explore modifications to the loop-induced Higgs couplings hγγ and hγZ from light charginos in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. When the lightest chargino mass is above the
Vacuum stability constraints on the enhancement of the h → γγ rate in the MSSM
A bstractThe ATLAS and CMS collaborations discovered a new boson particle. If the new boson is the Higgs boson, the diphoton signal strength is 1.5 - 1.8 times larger than the Standard Model (SM)
Light stops, light staus and the 125 GeV Higgs
A bstractThe ATLAS and CMS experiments have recently announced the discovery of a Higgs-like resonance with mass close to 125 GeV. Overall, the data is consistent with a Standard Model (SM)-like
Vacuum stability bounds on Higgs coupling deviations in the absence of new bosons
A bstractWe analyze the constraints imposed by Higgs vacuum stability on models with new fermions beyond the Standard Model. We focus on the phenomenology of Higgs couplings accessible at the Large
Vector-like leptons and extra gauge symmetry for the natural Higgs boson
A bstractFor raising the radiative Higgs mass without a serious fine-tuning in the Higgs sector, we introduce vector-like lepton doublets and neutral singlets {L, Lc; N, Nc}, and consider their order
Higgs mixing and diphoton rate enhancement in NMSSM models
A bstractWe study the implications of the LHC Higgs signals on the Higgs mixing in the next-to-minimal supersymmetric standard model (NMSSM). The Higgs couplings can depart from their values in the
Modified Higgs sectors and NLO associated production
A bstractMany beyond the Standard Model (BSM) scenarios involve Higgs couplings to additional electroweak fields. It is well established that these new fields may modify h → γγ and h → γZ decays at


Implications of a modified Higgs to diphoton decay width
A bstractMotivated by recent results from Higgs searches at the Large Hadron Collider, we consider possibilities to enhance the diphoton decay width of the Higgs boson over the Standard Model
Nearly Degenerate Gauginos and Dark Matter at the LHC
Motivated by dark-matter considerations in supersymmetric theories, we investigate in a fairly modelindependent way the detection at the LHC of nearly degenerate gauginos with mass differences
Light stau phenomenology and the Higgs γγ rate
A bstractRecently, an excess of events consistent with a Higgs boson with mass of about 125 GeV was reported by the CMS and ATLAS experiments. This Higgs boson mass is consistent with the values that
Natural SUSY predicts: Higgs couplings
A bstractWe study Higgs production and decays in the context of natural SUSY, allowing for an extended Higgs sector to account for a 125 GeV lightest Higgs boson. Under broad assumptions, Higgs
A 125 GeV SM-like Higgs in the MSSM and the γγ rate
A bstractWe consider the possibility of a Standard Model (SM)-like Higgs in the context of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), with a mass of about 125 GeV and with a production times
Beautiful mirrors and precision electroweak data
The standard model (SM) with a light Higgs boson provides a very good description of the precision electroweak observable data coming from the CERN LEP, SLD and Fermilab Tevatron experiments. Most of
Four generations and Higgs physics
In the light of the LHC, we revisit the implications of a fourth generation of chiral matter. We identify a specific ensemble of particle masses and mixings that are in agreement with all current
Model-independent bounds on squarks from monophoton searches
A bstractSupersymmetry with a compressed spectrum could be responsible for the negative results from supersymmetric searches at LHC. Squarks and gluinos well below the TeV scale could have escaped
Higgs Properties and Fourth Generation Leptons
It is possible that there are additional vectorlike generations where the quarks have mass terms that do not originate from weak symmetry breaking, but the leptons only get mass through weak symmetry
