Likelihood Analysis of the Minimal AMSB Model [Dec 15, 2016]

We perform a likelihood analysis of the minimal Anomaly-Mediated Supersymmetry Breaking (mAMSB) model using constraints from cosmology and accelerator experiments. We find that a wino-like or a Higgsino-like neutralino LSP, mχ~01, may provide the cold dark matter (DM) with similar likelihood. The upper limit on the DM density from Planck and other experiments enforces mχ~01≲3 TeV after the inclusion of Sommerfeld enhancement in its annihilations. If most of the cold DM density is provided by the χ~01, the measured value of the Higgs mass favours a limited range of tanβ∼5 (or for μ>0, tanβ∼45) but the scalar mass m0 is poorly constrained. In the wino-LSP case, m3/2 is constrained to about 900 TeV and mχ~01 to 2.9±0.1 TeV, whereas in the Higgsino-LSP case m3/2 has just a lower limit ≳650TeV (≳480TeV) and mχ~01 is constrained to 1.12 (1.13)±0.02 TeV in the μ>0 (μ<0) scenario. In neither case can the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, (g−2)μ, be improved significantly relative to its Standard Model (SM) value, nor do flavour measurements constrain the model significantly, and there are poor prospects for discovering supersymmetric particles at the LHC, {though there} are some prospects for direct DM detection. On the other hand, if the mχ~01 contributes only a fraction of the cold DM density, future LHC ET-based searches for gluinos, squarks and heavier chargino and neutralino states as well as disappearing track searches in the wino-like LSP region will be relevant, and interference effects enable BR(Bs,d→μ+μ) to agree with the data better than in the SM in the case of wino-like DM with μ>0.



The MasterCode is a computer code that allows to fit different versions of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) to currently existing experimental data.
