ABSTRACT Recently, the ATLAS and CMS collaborations reported exciting hints of a
standard model-like Higgs boson with a mass around 125 GeV. Such a Higgs
boson mass can be easily obtained in the minimal supersymmetric standard
model based on the “pure gravity mediation model” where the
sfermion masses and the Higgs mass parameters are in the tens to
hundreds TeV range, while the gauginos are in the hundreds GeV to TeV
range. In this paper, we discuss details of the gaugino mass spectrum in
the pure gravity mediation model. We also discuss the signals of the
model at current and future experiments such as cosmic-ray observations
and the LHC experiments. In particular, we show that the parameter space
which is consistent with the thermal leptogenesis can be fully surveyed
experimentally in the foreseeable future.

    ABSTRACT: We argue that under a set of simple assumptions the multiverse leads to low-energy supersymmetry with the spectrum often called spread or minisplit supersymmetry: the gauginos are in the TeV region with the other superpartners 2 or 3 orders of magnitude heavier. We present a particularly simple realization of supersymmetric grand unified theory using this idea.

    ABSTRACT: The nucleon decay is a significant phenomenon to verify grand unified theories (GUTs). For the precise prediction of the nucleon lifetime induced by the gauge bosons associated with the unified gauge group, it is important to include the renormalization effects on the Wilson coefficients of the dimension-six baryon number violating operators. In this study, we have derived the threshold corrections to these coefficients at the one-loop level in the minimal supersymmetric SU(5) GUT and the extended one with additional $SU(5)$ vector-like pairs. As a result, it is found that the nucleon decay rate is suppressed about 5% in the minimal setup, and then the suppression could be $O(10)$% in the vector-like matter extensions.

    ABSTRACT: A search is presented for long-lived charged particles that decay within the CMS detector and produce the signature of a disappearing track. Disappearing tracks are identified as those with little or no associated calorimeter energy deposits and with missing hits in the outer layers of the tracker. The search uses proton-proton collision data recorded at sqrt(s) = 8 TeV that corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 19.5 inverse femtobarns. The results of the search are interpreted in the context of the anomaly-mediated supersymmetry breaking (AMSB) model. The number of observed events is in agreement with the background expectation, and limits are set on the cross section of direct electroweak chargino production in terms of the chargino mass and mean proper lifetime. At 95% confidence level, AMSB models with a chargino mass less than 260 GeV, corresponding to a mean proper lifetime of 0.2 ns, are excluded.
