The recent Belle and BaBar measurements of the branching ratio of $B^+ \to \tau^+ \nu_\tau$ indicate a significant deviation from the Standard Model prediction. We demonstrate that this measurement has a serious impact on models with minimal flavor violation involving a charged Higgs boson, ruling out a large portion of the currently-allowed parameter space. In the constrained minimal supersymmetric standard model, this creates a tension between the measurements of $B^+ \to \tau^+ \nu_\tau$ and…

B->tau nu in multi-Higgs models with MFV
We analyse the $B \rightarrow \tau \nu$ decay in a generic two-Higgs doublet model satisfying the MFV hypothesis. In particular, we analyse under which conditions $\BR(B \rightarrow \tau \nu)$ can be

Detailed analysis of flavor-changing decays of top quarks as a probe of new physics at the LHC
If the LHC should fail to observe direct signals for new physics, it may become necessary to look for new physics effects in rare events such as flavor-changing decays of the top quark, which, in the

Predictions for $B \to \tau \bar{\mu} + \mu \bar{\tau} $
The observation of $B \to \tau \bar{\mu} + \mu \bar{\tau} $ at present experiments would be a clear sign of new physics. In this paper we calculate this process in a 2HDM framework where the decay is
Implications of the 98 GeV and 125 GeV Higgs scenarios in nondecoupling supersymmetry with updated ATLAS, CMS, and PLANCK data
We discuss both MSSM and NMSSM scenarios in which the lightest Higgs boson with $m_h=98$~GeV is consistent with the small excess ($\sim 2.3 \sigma$) observed at the LEP in $e^+ e^-\rightarrow Zh$,
We make a critical study of two highly-constrained models of supersymmetry — the constrained minimal supersymmetric standard model (cMSSM), and the nonuniversal Higgs mass (NUHM) model — in the light
