@article{Ellis2017HighscaleST, title={High-scale supersymmetry, the Higgs boson mass, and gauge unification}, author={Sebastian A. R. Ellis and James D. Wells}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2017}, volume={96}, pages={055024} }

Suppressing naturalness concerns, we discuss the compatibility requirements of high-scale supersymmetry breaking with the Higgs boson mass constraint and gauge coupling unification. We find that to accommodate superpartner masses significantly greater than the electroweak scale, one must introduce large non-degeneracy factors. These factors are enumerated, and implications for the allowed forms of supersymmetry breaking are discussed. We find that superpartner masses of arbitrarily high values… Expand
