Title: Implications of WMAP data and other constraints for collider searches for SUSY

Abstract

The WMAP data provide a stringent upper bound on the mass of any thermal, stable weakly interacting massive particle, such as the stable lightest neutralino of R-parity conserving SUSY models. We first examine how the WMAP data together with measurements of g{mu} - 2, radiative B-meson decays constrain the parameter space of the paradigm mSUGRA model, and explore their ramifications for expectations at future colliders as well as for direct and indirect detection of SUSY WIMPS. Finally, we examine whether these conclusions are qualitatively stable to departures from universality that are the hallmark of the mSUGRA framework. We find that seemingly innocuous modifications of mSUGRA can result in qualitatively different expectations at colliders, and so caution that it may be dangerous to draw strong inferences based solely on mSUGRA considerations.
