Title: SUSY Parameter Measurements with Fittino

Abstract

This article presents the results of a realistic global fit of the Lagrangian parameters of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model with no assumptions on the SUSY breaking mechanism using the fit program Fittino. The fit is performed using the precision of future mass measurements of superpartners at the LHC and mass and polarized topological cross-section measurements at the ILC. Higher order radiative corrections are accounted for wherever possible to date. Results are obtained for a modified SPS1a MSSM benchmark scenario (general MSSM without assumptions on the breaking mechanism) and for a specific mSUGRA scenario. Exploiting a simulated annealing algorithm, a stable result is obtained without any a priori assumptions on the fit parameters. Most of the Lagrangian parameters can be extracted at the percent level or better if theoretical uncertainties are neglected. Neither LHC nor ILC measurements alone will be sufficient to obtain a stable result.

  • Methods to make precision measurements of SUSY masses and parameters at the CERN Large Hadron Collider are described.
  • This paper reports on the noise parameters of a HTS flux flow transistor made of TiBaCaCuO operating at 77 K and 3--5 GHz experimentally determined. It is assumed that the dominant noise mechanism of the device, which is based on an array of weak links with a magnetic control line is due to the statistical nature of flux nucleation and motion in the links. The noise parameters dictate the dependence of the noise figure on the source impedance and were calculated by measuring the noise figure with a number of different source impedances. Sensitivity analysis is used to estimate themore » accuracy of the measurements. The measurements indicate a minimum noise figure of less than 1 dB at 3 GHz.« less
  • This paper presents x-ray generated photoelectron and Auger transition data for several phosphorus reference compounds, including PCl/sub 3/, P/sub 3/N/sub 5/, P/sub 2/O/sub 5/, (C/sub 6/H/sub 5/)/sub 3/P(C/sub 5/H/sub 4/), (C/sub 6/H/sub 5/)/sub 4/PBr, KH/sub 2/PO/sub 4/ (KDP), NH/sub 4/H/sub 2/PO/sub 4/ (ADP), and NH/sub 4/PF/sub 6/. This data has been used to determine the relative ionicity and polarizability of phosphorus in the chlorophosphazene trimer ((NPCl/sub 2/)/sub 3/) and polymer ((NPCl/sub 2/)/sub n/). The results support recent molecular orbital calculations that predict a highly polarized backbone bond in the phosphazenes. Furthermore, the chlorophosphazene polymer was observed to have a greatermore » value for the Auger parameter than the chlorotrimer, indicating that the media surrounding the polymer is more polarizable than that surrounding the trimer. 15 refs., 2 figs., 2 tabs.« less
  • In the 110 pb{sup -1} Run I data sample, using three complementary flavor-tagging algorithms CDF has made a new measurement of the CP-violating asymmetry sin(2{beta})=0.79{sup +0.41}{sub -0.44}, This corresponds to the limit sin(2{beta})>-0.08 at 95% confidence level. This result agrees well with predictions from indirect constraints based on fits of elements of the CKM matrix.
