S10.00002: Sakurai Prize: The Future of Higgs Physics Invited Speaker: Sally Dawson The discovery of the Higgs boson relied critically on precision calculations. The quantum contributions from the Higgs boson to the W and top quark masses suggested long before the Higgs discovery that a Standard Model Higgs boson should have a mass in the 100200 GeV range. The experimental extraction of Higgs properties requires normalization to the predicted Higgs production and decay rates, for which higher order corrections are also essential. As Higgs physics becomes a mature subject, more and more precise calculations will be required. If there is new physics at high scales, it will contribute to the predictions and precision Higgs physics will be a window to beyond the Standard Model physics. [Preview Abstract]

S10.00003: Sakurai Prize: Beyond the Standard Model Higgs Boson Invited Speaker: Howard Haber The discovery of the Higgs boson strongly suggests that the first elementary spin 0 particle has been observed. Is the Higgs boson a solo act, or are there additional Higgs bosons to be discovered? Given that there are three generations of fundamental fermions, one might also expect the sector of fundamental scalars of nature to be nonminimal. However, there are already strong constraints on the possible structure of an extended Higgs sector. In this talk, I review the theoretical motivations that have been put forward for an extended Higgs sector and discuss its implications in light of the observation that the properties of the observed Higgs boson are close to those predicted by the Standard Model.

S10.00004: Sakurai Prize: Extended Higgs Sectors — phenomenology and future prospects Invited Speaker: John Gunion The discovery of a spin0 state at 125 GeV with properties close to those predicted for the single Higgs boson of the Standard Model does not preclude the existence of additional Higgs bosons. In this talk, models with extended Higgs sectors are reviewed, including twoHiggsdoublet models with and without an extra singlet Higgs field and supersymmetric models. Special emphasis is given to the limit in which the couplings and properties of one of the Higgs bosons of the extended Higgs sector are very close to those predicted for the single Standard Model Higgs boson while the other Higgs bosons are relatively light, perhaps even having masses close to or below the SMlike 125 GeV state. Constraints on this type of scenario given existing data are summarized and prospects for observing these nonSMlike Higgs bosons are discussed. [Preview Abstract]

S10.00005: Sakurai Prize: Why the Higgs Boson data implies an Mtheory world Invited Speaker: Gordon Kane Compactifying 11D Mtheory on a 7D G2 manifold automatically gives a supersymmetric 4D relativistic quantum field theory. The supersymmetry is softly broken by gluino condensation of the largest gauge group hidden sector, which runs fastest. The resulting gravitino mass is about 40 TeV, and the scalar masses and trilinears of the soft breaking Lagrangian have similar values. All solutions having electroweak symmetry breaking are in the two doublet decoupling region. The coefficient $\lambda $ of the effective Higgs potential is calculable and determines M$_{\mathrm{h}}$/M$_{\mathrm{Z}}$. Using the most recent match and run methods, and running down to the TeV scale gives M$_{\mathrm{h}}=$126 GeV, and decay BR within a few per cent of the SM Higgs. This was reported in summer 2011, before LHC data, though the result does not depend on any adjustable parameters so it would be unchanged whenever it was reported. [Preview Abstract]
