||I apply for session I and hence my main focus is on topics 1) and 2) see below: 1) Calculation of NLO QCD corrections to generic SUSY cascade decays. Combination of the NLO production and decay process in a NLO parton-level Monte Carlo program. 2) Major improvements and extensions of Higgs and SUSY decay programs as SDECAY, SUSY-HIT and HDECAY. Intense discussions with experimentalists about their wishlists are foreseen. Since I apply for session I there is no New Physics group. But I will particate from remote in the BSM discussion in session II and work on this 3) EWP constraints on composite Higgs models. Effects of composite tops on single Higgs and Higgs pair production. 4) Radion production in gluon gluon fusion.
