  title={SUSY scenarios according to EWSB},
  author={Radovan Dermı́̌sek},
This talk provides a limited review of SUSY scenarios with the focus on the way electroweak symmetry breaking is achieved and understood under different assumptions. Various aspects of naturalness and their implications are discussed and compared.

The Status of Supersymmetry after the LHC Run 1

Supersymmetry (SUSY) is a complete and renormalisable candidate for an extension of the Standard Model. At an energy scale not too far above the electroweak scale it would solve the hierarchy problem

Loop suppressed electroweak symmetry breaking and naturally heavy superpartners

A model is presented in which O(10 TeV) stop masses, typically required by the Higgs boson mass in supersymmetric models, do not originate from soft supersymmetry breaking terms that would drive the

Little hierarchy in the minimally specified MSSM

We study constrained versions of the minimal supersymmetric model and investigate the hierarchy between the electroweak scale and the scale of superpartners that can be achieved without relying on

Generalized Supersoft Supersymmetry Breaking and a Solution to the μ Problem.

A novel feature of this framework is that the new μ term can give unequal masses to the up and down type Higgs fields, and theHiggsinos can be much heavier than the Higgs boson without fine-tuning.

Naturalness and the Status of Supersymmetry

For decades, the unnaturalness of the weak scale has been the dominant problem motivating new particle physics, and weak-scale supersymmetry has been the dominant proposed solution. This paradigm is

Natural Supersymmetry without Light Higgsinos

In this study, we present a mechanism that allows a large Higgsino mass without large fine-tuning. The Higgs is a pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone boson (PNGB) of the global symmetry breaking pattern

Unification of gauge couplings in the standard model with extra vectorlike families

We discuss gauge coupling unification in models with additional 1 to 4 complete vector-like families, and derive simple rules for masses of vector-like fermions required for exact gauge coupling

Mass scale of vectorlike matter and superpartners from IR fixed point predictions of gauge and top Yukawa couplings

We use the IR fixed point predictions for gauge couplings and the top Yukawa coupling in the MSSM extended with vectorlike families to infer the scale of vectorlike matter and superpartners. We quote

Emergence of small numbers in complex systems and the origin of the electroweak scale

In sufficiently complex models with many parameters that are unknown or undetermined from first principles, a small coupling or mass can naturally arise even if it is not protected by a symmetry or a
