Title: Stop coannihilation in the CMSSM and SubGUT models

Abstract

Stop coannihilation may bring the relic density of heavy supersymmetric dark matter particles into the range allowed by cosmology. The efficiency of this pro-cess is enhanced by stop-antistop annihilations into the lon-gitudinal (Goldstone) modes of the W and Z bosons, as well as by Sommerfeld enhancement of stop annihilations and the effects of bound states. Since the couplings of the stops to the Goldstone modes are proportional to the trilin-ear soft supersymmetry-breaking A-terms, these annihila-tions are enhanced when the A-terms are large. Yet, the Higgs mass may be reduced below the measured value if the A-terms are too large. Unfortunately, the interpretation of this constraint on the stop coannihilation strip is clouded by differences between the available Higgs mass calculators. For our study, we use as our default calcula-tor FeynHiggs 2.13.0, the most recent publicly avail-able version of this code. Exploring the CMSSM parameter space, we find that along the stop coannihilation strip the masses of the stops are severely split by the large A-terms. This suppresses the Higgs mass drastically for μ and A 0 > 0, whilst the extent of the stop coannihilation strip is limited for A 0 < 0 and either sign of μ. However, inmore » sub-GUT models, reduced renormalization-group running mitigates the effect of the large A-terms, allowing larger LSP masses to be consistent with the Higgs mass calculation. We give examples where the dark matter particle mass may reach ≳ 8 TeV.« less
