Focus Point Supersymmetry

All of supersymmetry phenomenology suffers from the tension between naturalness and low energy constraints. Most attempts to relieve this tension have assumed that naturalness requires sub-TeV superpartners and have attempted to satisfy the low energy constraints by arranging for scalar degeneracy, In this talk, I will describe an alternative proposal: focus point supersymmetry. In this framework, an interesting property of renormalization group equations allows all scalar superpartners to have multi-TeV masses without sacrificing naturalness.
