Does the new version supersede the previous version?: Yes
Nature of problem:
Calculation of the relic density of the lightest stable particle in a generic new model of particle physics.
In numerically solving the evolution equation for the density of darkmatter, relativistic formulae for the thermal average are used. All tree-level processes for annihilation and coannihilation of new particles in the model are included. The cross-sections for all processes are calculated exactly with CalcHEP after definition of a model file. Higher-order QCD corrections to Higgs couplings to quark pairs are included.
Reasons for new version:
There are many models of new physics that propose a candidate for dark matter besides the much studied minimal supersymmetric standard model. This new version not only incorporates extensions of the MSSM, such as the MSSM with complex phases, or the NMSSM which contains an extra singlet superfield but also gives the possibility for the user to incorporate easily a new model. For this the user only needs to redefine appropriately a new model file.
Summary of revisions:
Depending on the parameters of the model, the program generates additional new code, compiles it and loads it dynamically.
