Implications of LHC Higgs results for the MSSM
Abstract: LHC measurements of the Higgs boson mass and signal rates have strong implications for new physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM). I shall introduce the public computer tools HiggsBounds and HiggsSignals which can be utilized to confront arbitrary BSM Higgs sectors with the experimental results from Higgs searches. Employing these tools I will then focus on the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) and address two questions: First, what are the possible interpretations of the discovered Higgs boson within the MSSM? Second, motivated by the possibility of successful electroweak baryogenesis through a light top squark in the MSSM, how low can the mass of the light top squark be?
