Updated templates for the interpretation of LHC results on supersymmetry in the context of mSUGRA
In this short note, we describe the preparation of updated templates for the interpretation of SUSY results from the LHC in the context of mSUGRA. The standard (m_0,m_1/2) plane is shown for fixed mu > 0 and m_t = 173.2 GeV. Two scenarios are considered: (1) A_0 = 0 GeV and tan(beta)=10 and (2) A_0 = -500 GeV and tan(beta)=40. In each case, the universal scalar mass parameter m_0 varies in the range [40,3000] GeV, while the universal gaugino mass parameter m_1/2 varies in the range [100,1000] GeV. We delineate notable regions in parameter space, including the region with a charged LSP (stau), the LEP2 reach, and the cosmologically preferred region with 100% neutralino dark matter. The templates also show mass contours for a few key particles (gluino, squark and Higgs boson). The mass spectrum is calculated with the SoftSusy-3.2.4 package, while the neutralino relic density is obtained with MicrOMEGAs version 2.4.
