  • Recent lattice measurements have given accurate estimates of the light and strange quark condensates in the proton. We use these new results to signi#12;cantly improve the dark matter predictions in a set of benchmark models that represent di#11;erent scenarios in the constrained minimal supersymmetric standard model (CMSSM). Because the predicted cross sections are at least an order of magnitude smaller than previously suggested, our results have signi#12;cant consequences for dark matter… CONTINUE READING
