CMS harbors new physics beyond the Standard Model

In these days is ongoing LHCP 2013 (First Large Hadron Collider Physics Conference) and CMS data seem to point significantly toward new physics. Their measurements on the production modes for WW and ZZ are agreeing with my recent computations (see here) and overall are deviating slightly from Standard Model expectations giving

\frac{\sigma}{\sigma_SM}=0.80\pm 0.14

Note that Standard Model is alive and kicking yet but looking at the production mode of WW you will read

\frac{\sigma_{WW}}{\sigma_{WW\ SM}}=0.68\pm 0.20

in close agreement with results given in my paper and improved respect to Moriond that was 0.71\pm 0.21. The reason could be that: Higgs model is a conformal one. Data from ZZ yield

\frac{\sigma_{ZZ}}{\sigma_{ZZ\ SM}}=0.92\pm 0.28

that is consistent with the result for WW mode, though. I give here the full table from the talk

For the sake of completeness I give here also the same results from ATLAS at the same conference that, instead, seems to go the other way round obtaining overall 1.30\pm 0.20 and this is already an interesting matter.

At CMS, new physics beyond the Standard Model is peeping out and, more inteestingly, the Higgs model tends to be a conformal one. If this is true, supersymmetry is an inescapable consequence (see here). I would like to conclude citing the papers of other people working on this model and that will be largely cited in the foreseeable future (see here and here).
