Title: Multidimensional mSUGRA likelihood maps

Abstract

We calculate the likelihood map in the full 7-dimensional parameter space of the minimal supersymmetric standard model assuming universal boundary conditions on the supersymmetry breaking terms. Simultaneous variations of m{sub 0}, A{sub 0}, M{sub 1/2}, tan{beta}, m{sub t}, m{sub b} and {alpha}{sub s}(M{sub Z}) are applied using a Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithm. We use measurements of b{yields}s{gamma}, (g-2){sub {mu}} and {omega}{sub DM}h{sup 2} in order to constrain the model. We present likelihood distributions for some of the sparticle masses, for the branching ratio of B{sub s}{sup 0}{yields}{mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -} and for m{sub {tau}}{sub -tilde}-m{sub {chi}{sub 1}{sup 0}}. An upper limit of 2x10{sup -8} on this branching ratio might be achieved at the Tevatron, and would rule out 29% of the currently allowed likelihood. If one allows for non-thermal-neutralino components of dark matter, this fraction becomes 35%. The mass ordering allows the important cascade decay q-tilde{sub L}{yields}{chi}{sub 2}{sup 0}{yields}l-tilde{sub R}{yields}{chi}{sub 1}{sup 0} with a likelihood of 24{+-}4%. The stop-coannihilation region is highly disfavored, whereas the light Higgs region is marginally disfavored.
