Title: Dark matter direct detection constraints on the minimal supersymmetric standard model and implications for LHC Higgs boson searches

Abstract

Assuming the lightest neutralino solely composes the cosmic dark matter, we examine the constraints of the CDMS-II and XENON100 dark matter direct searches on the parameter space of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) Higgs sector. We find that the current CDMS-II/XENON100 limits can exclude some of the parameter space which survive the constraints from the dark matter relic density and various collider experiments. We also find that in the currently allowed parameter space, the charged Higgs boson is hardly accessible at the LHC for an integrated luminosity of 30 fb{sup -1}, while the neutral non-SM (standard model) Higgs bosons (H,A) may be accessible in some allowed region characterized by a large {mu}. The future XENON100 (6000 kg-days exposure) will significantly tighten the parameter space in case of nonobservation of dark matter.
