For particle physics observables at colliders such as the LHC at CERN, it has been common practice for many decades to estimate the theoretical uncertainty by studying the variations of the predicted cross sections with a priori unpredictable scales. In astroparticle physics, this has so far not been possible, since most of the observables were calculated at Born level only, so that the renormalization scheme and scale dependence could not be studied in a meaningful way. In this paper, we… 

Squark-pair annihilation into quarks at next-to-leading order

The Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) is under intense scrutiny at the LHC and in dark matter searches. Interestingly, scenarios with light squarks of the third generation remain not only

SUSY QCD-corrected and Sommerfeld-enhanced stau annihilation into heavy quarks with scheme and scale uncertainties

We investigate stau-antistau annihilation into heavy quarks in the phenomenological Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model within the DM@NLO project. We present the calculation of the corresponding

The dipole formalism for massive initial-state particles and its application to dark matter calculations

: The dark matter abundance plays a crucial role in the determination of the valid parameter space of models both in case of a discovery of dark matter and in the context of exclusion limits.

Radiative bound-state formation in unbroken perturbative non-Abelian theories and implications for dark matter

We compute the cross-sections for the radiative capture of non-relativistic particles into bound states, in unbroken perturbative non-Abelian theories. We find that the formation of bound states via

Revisiting the gluino mass limits in the pMSSM in the light of the latest LHC data and Dark Matter constraints

The purpose of this paper is to examine the model dependence of the stringent constraints on the gluino mass obtained from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments by analyzing the Run II data

Global fits of GUT-scale SUSY models with GAMBIT

We present the most comprehensive global fits to date of three supersymmetric models motivated by grand unification: the constrained minimal supersymmetric standard model (CMSSM), and its

Indirect detection constraints on the scotogenic dark matter model

Radiative seesaw models have the attractive property of providing dark matter candidates in addition to the generation of neutrino masses. Here we present a study of neutrino signals from the

A global fit of the MSSM with GAMBIT

We study the seven-dimensional Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM7) with the new GAMBIT software framework, with all parameters defined at the weak scale. Our analysis significantly extends
