Higgs Boson Interactions in Supersymmetric Theories with Large Tan Beta


We show that radiative corrections to the Higgs potential in supersymmetric theories with large $\tan\beta$ generically lead to large differences in the light Higgs boson decay branching fractions compared to those of the standard model Higgs boson. In contrast, the light Higgs boson production rates are largely unaffected. We identify $Wh$ associated production followed by Higgs boson decays to photons or to leptons via $WW^*$ as potential experimental probes of these theories. \bigskip \begin{center} (Submitted to Phys.

The PDF version of this document was distilled from a PostScript file most likely created from LaTeX source which used Type 3 fonts. The resultant PDF may be unreadable on the screen at the default viewing magnification (fonts will appear bitmapped, jagged), though the type will be legible at higher magnifications.

Despite the cosmetic problems resulting from the use Type 3 fonts in the original source file, such PDF files print without problems; likewise, the onscreen text is searchable and selectable.
