H, Z, susy

I finally noticed that the Higgs mass parameter μ, 89 GeV, is very close to the Z boson rest mass, 91 GeV (and the width of the Z is a few GeV).

In the standard model, these quantities should be independent. But in the MSSM, the Z boson is the upper bound on the tree-level mass of the Higgs.

I am too tired to develop an interpretation. But tomorrow is another day.
