Some properties of the Higgs sector of the Next-to Minimal SuperSymmetric Model
The problems of the standard model are briefly reviewed and the motivations for introducing supersymmetry are discussed. Two realistic supersymmetric models; the Minimal SuperSymmetric Model, MSSM, and its proposed extension NMSSM are introduced briefly and then some details of the Higgs sector of NMSSM are stated and some constraints on parameters are described. I then explore the Higgs boson masses and couplings for some interesting scenarios, including a few different ways of taking the limit where NMSSM reduces to MSSM.
