    Trying to known the popularity of some nomenclature between the readers of PF. Please check also the parallel poll in https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?p=242508

    I have to confess that I hadn't heard about the Higgs doublet and also about the THDM (Two Higgs Doublet model). I hope to have passed the test though :biggrin:

    Do you happen to know if the Minimal supersymmetric standard model is actually considered like a viable theory? There's not much discussion about it at PF.

    Mssm

    As far as one can read from the particle data group, it keeps being one of the main theories under consideration. If you go across the evaluation of searches in high energy physics, you will notice that the particles coming from the MSSM are currenntly given more emphasis than, for example, the ones coming from grand unyfied models. For the MSSM a huge range of plots about exclusion areas is done.

    In the last year I am afraid that one motivation to dismiss research in the 68 GeV events measured by LEP was -IMHO- that they were not compatible with the minimal supersymmetric model.
