Bayesian Approach to Investigating Supersymmetric Models

  title={Bayesian Approach to Investigating Supersymmetric Models},
  author={Andrew Fowlie},
With Bayesian statistics, constrained and phenomenological supersymmetric models are examined and compared with the strongest contemporary experimental results, including the Higgs discovery, Large Hadron Collider (LHC) searches for supersymmetry, dark matter relic density measurements, rare decays and electroweak precision tests. Preliminary introductions to relevant supersymmetry phenomenology, Bayesian statistics and algorithms, and comprehensive descriptions of likelihood functions for… 
Combined collider constraints on neutralinos and charginos
Searches for supersymmetric electroweakinos have entered a crucial phase, as the integrated luminosity of the Large Hadron Collider is now high enough to compensate for their weak production
Killing the cMSSM softly
We investigate the constrained Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (cMSSM) in the light of constraining experimental and observational data from precision measurements, astrophysics, direct


Natural priors, CMSSM fits and LHC weather forecasts
Previous LHC forecasts for the constrained minimal supersymmetric standard model (CMSSM), based on current astrophysical and laboratory measurements, have used priors that are flat in the parameter
Likelihood functions for supersymmetric observables in frequentist analyses of the CMSSM and NUHM1
On the basis of frequentist analyses of experimental constraints from electroweak precision data, (g−2)μ, B-physics and cosmological data, we investigate the parameters of the constrained MSSM
Predictions for supersymmetric particle masses using indirect experimental and cosmological constraints
In view of the imminent start of the LHC experimental programme, we use the available indirect experimental and cosmological information to estimate the likely range of parameters of the constrained
Reconstructing ATLAS SU3 in the CMSSM and relaxed phenomenological supersymmetry models
Assuming that the LHC makes a positive end-point measurement indicative of low-energy supersymmetry, we examine the prospects of reconstructing the parameter values of a typical low-mass point in the
Global Fits of the cMSSM and NUHM including the LHC Higgs discovery and new XENON100 constraints
We present global fits of the constrained Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (cMSSM) and the Non-Universal Higgs Model (NUHM), including the most recent CMS constraint on the Higgs boson mass, 5.8
Updated global fits of the cMSSM including the latest LHC SUSY and Higgs searches and XENON100 data
We present new global fits of the constrained Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (cMSSM), including LHC 1/fb integrated luminosity SUSY exclusion limits, recent LHC 5/fb constraints on the mass of
Inclusive search for squarks and gluinos in pp collisions
A search is performed for heavy particle pairs produced in sqrt(s) = 7 TeV proton-proton collisions with 35 inverse picobarns of data collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC. The search is
Bayesian Implications of Current LHC Supersymmetry and Dark Matter Detection Searches for the Constrained MSSM
We investigate the impact of recent limits from LHC searches for supersymmetry and from direct and indirect searches for dark matter on global Bayesian inferences of the parameter space of the
