We review the status of the phenomenology of light neutralinos in an effective Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM) at the electroweak scale, in light of new results obtained at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. First we consider the impact of the new data obtained by the CMS Collaboration on the search for the Higgs boson decay into a tau pair, and by the CMS and LHCb Collaborations on the branching ratio for the decay $B_s \rightarrow {\mu}^{+} + {\mu}^{-}$. Then we… Expand

Constraints on invisible Higgs decay in MSSM in the light of diphoton rates from the LHC
We examine the parameter space of the purely phenomenological minimal super- symmetric standard model (MSSM), without assuming any supersymmetry breaking scheme. We find that a large region of theExpand
Implications of LHC search results on the W boson mass prediction in the MSSM
A bstractWe present the currently most precise W boson mass (MW) prediction in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) and discuss how it is affected by recent results from the LHC. TheExpand
Confronting the MSSM and the NMSSM with the discovery of a signal in the two photon channel at the LHC
We confront the discovery of a boson decaying into two photons, as reported recently by ATLAS and CMS, with the corresponding predictions in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) and theExpand
Comprehensive Analysis on the Light Higgs Boson Scenario
Comprehensive analysis on the light Higgs scenario of the minimal supersymmetric standard model is performed in the framework of the non-universal Higgs mass model (NUHM). The NUHM is known to be theExpand
Naturalness of light neutralino dark matter in pMSSM after LHC, XENON100 and Planck data
A bstractWe examine the possibility of a light (below 46 GeV) neutralino dark matter (DM) candidate within the 19-parameter phenomenological Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (pMSSM) in the lightExpand
Exploring the Higgs sector of the MRSSM with a light scalar
A bstractIn a recent paper we showed that the Minimal R-symmetric Supersymmetric Standard Model (MRSSM) can accommodate the observed 125 GeV Higgs boson as the lightest scalar of the model inExpand
Precise predictions for Higgs physics in supersymmetric models
In the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), the mass of the SM-like Higgs boson can be predicted in terms of the model parameters and therefore used as a precision observable to constrainExpand
A SM-like Higgs near 125 GeV in low energy SUSY: a comparative study for MSSM and NMSSM
A bstractMotivated by the recent LHC hints of a Higgs boson around 125 GeV, we assume a SM-like Higgs with the mass 123-127 GeV and study its implication in low energy SUSY by comparing the MSSM andExpand
Low-mass neutralino dark matter in supergravity scenarios: phenomenology and naturalness
The latest experimental results from the LHC and dark matter (DM) searches suggest that the parameter space allowed in supersymmetric theories is subject to strong reductions. These bounds areExpand
Consistent on shell renormalisation of electroweakinos in the complex MSSM: LHC and LC predictions
A bstractWe extend the formalism developed in ref. [53] for the renormalisation of the chargino-neutralino sector to the most general case of the MSSM with complex parameters. We show that productsExpand
