Featured Research: OU Physicists Predict Higgs Boson Mass From String Theory Landscape

OU Professors Howard Baer and Kuver Sinha, along with Professor Hasan Serce (Uuniversity of Central Oklahoma) and Professor Vernon Barger (University of Wisconsin), published the paper Higgs and superparticle mass predictions from the string theory landscape in the Journal of High Energy Physics. They show, using a statistical analysis of the supersymmetry breaking scale from the string theory landscape, that nature pulls towards large supersymmetry breaking masses along…
