Does the new version supersede the previous version?: Yes
Nature of problem:
Calculation of the relic density and direct and indirect detection rates of the lightest stable particle in a generic new model of particle physics.
In numerically solving the evolution equation for the density of dark matter, relativistic formulae for the thermal average are used. All tree-level processes for annihilation and coannihilation of new particles in the model are included as well as some 3-body final states. The cross-sections for all processes are calculated exactly with CalcHEP after definition of a model file. The propagation of the charged cosmic rays is solved within a semi-analytical two-zone model.
Reasons for new version:
There are many experiments that are currently searching for the remnants of dark matter annihilation and the relic density is determined precisely from cosmological measurements. In this version we add the computation of dark matter signals in neutrino telescopes, we generalize the Boltzmann equations so as to take into account a larger class of dark matter models and improve the precision in the prediction of the relic density for DM masses that are below the W mass. We compute the signal strength for Higgs production in different channels to compare with the results of the LHC.
Summary of revisions:
Depending on the parameters of the model, the program generates additional new code, compiles it and loads it dynamically.
