Upper limits on sparticle masses from WMAP dark matter constraints with modular invariant soft breaking

  author={Utpal Chattopadhyay and Prāṇ Nāth},
An analysis of dark matter within the framework of modular invariant soft breaking is given. In such scenarios inclusion of the radiative electroweak symmetry breaking constraint determines tanβ which leads to a more constrained analysis. It is shown that for μ positive for this constrained system the WMAP data leads to upper limits on sparticle masses that lie within reach of the LHC with also the possibility that some sparticles may be accessible at RUNII of the Tevatron.

Testing SUGRA Models
A brief review is given of the ways of testing SUGRA unified models and a class of string models using data from precision electroweak experiments, Yukawa unification constraints, and constraints
Dark matter in SUGRA, strings and branes
A brief review is given of dark matter in SUGRA, strings and branes. For SUGRA models the implications of Yukawa coupling unification on dark matter are discussed in the light of g 2 and b + sy


Upper limits on sparticle masses from g -- 2 and the possibility for discovery of supersymmetry at colliders and in dark matter searches.
The analysis strongly suggests that supersymmetry via production of sparticles must be found at the CERN Large Hadron Collider and that sgn(mu) positive is favorable for the discovery of supersymmetric cold dark matter.
WMAPing out supersymmetric dark matter and phenomenology
Abstract The recent WMAP data provide a rather restricted range of the Cold Dark Matter (CDM) density Ω CDM h 2 of unprecedented accuracy. We combine these new data along with data from BNL E821
Supersymmetric dark matter in light of WMAP
Abstract We re-examine the parameter space of the constrained minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (CMSSM), taking account of the restricted range of Ω CDM h 2 consistent with the
We extend the commonly used mSUGRA framework to allow complex soft terms. We show how these phases can induce large changes of the SUSY threshold corrections to the b quark mass and affect the
The role of Wino content in neutralino dark matter
We investigate the dark matter prospects of supersymmetric models with nonuniversal gaugino masses at low values of tan{beta}. We find that for particular values of the ratio of soft
Higgsino dark matter in a SUGRA model with nonuniversal gaugino masses
We study a specific SUGRA model with nonuniversal gaugino masses as an alternative to the minimal SUGRA model in the context of supersymmetric dark matter. The lightest supersymmetric particle in

The theoretical status of the muon anomaly is reviewed including the recent change in the light by light hadronic correction. Specific attention is given to the implications of the shift in the
Sensitivity of supersymmetric dark matter to the b quark mass
An analysis of the sensitivity of supersymmetric dark matter to variations in the b quark mass is given. Specifically we study the effects on the neutralino relic abundance from supersymmetric loop
Event rates in dark matter detectors for neutralinos including constraints from b-->s gamma decay.
The analysis given here uses the accurate method for the computation of the relic density and leads to a dip in the event rate when the neutralino mass is $\sim M_Z/2$ due to the $Z$-pole, and similar results hold when the neutrality--nucleus scattering is greater than m_h/2.

Abstract The new project GENIUS will cover a wide range of the parameter space of predictions of SUSY for neutralinos as cold dark matter. Together with DAMA it will be the only experiment which can
