What next for the CMSSM and the NUHM: Improved prospects for superpartner and dark matter detection

Presented by Dr. Andrew WILLIAMS on 24 Jul 2014 from 14:50 to 15:10
Type: Models of SUSY
Session: Models of SUSY
Track: Models of SUSY


We present an updated analysis of the CMSSM and the NUHM using the latest experimental data and numerical tools. We map out favored regions of Bayesian posterior probability in light of data from the LHC, flavor observables, the relic density and dark matter searches. We present some updated features with respect to our previous analyses: we include the effects of corrections to the light Higgs mass beyond the 2-loop order using FeynHiggs v2.10.0; we include in the likelihood the latest limits from direct searches for squarks and gluinos at ATLAS with ~20/fb; the latest constraints on the spin-independent scattering cross section of the neutralino from LUX are applied taking into account uncertainties in the nuclear form factors. We also derive the excepted sensitivity of the future CTA experiment to 1TeV higgsino dark matter for both models. We comment on the complementarity of this search to planned direct detection experiments such as XENON 1T. We compare the prospects of future detection in both models.
