Does the new version supersede the previous version?: yes

Nature of problem:
Calculation of flavor physics observables as well as the muon anomalous magnetic moment in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model with minimal flavor violation, in order to derive constraints on the supersymmetric parameter space.

Solution method:
SuperIso uses a SUSY Les Houches Accord file, which can be either generated automatically via a call to SOFTSUSY or ISAJET, or provided by the user. This file contains the masses and couplings of the supersymmetric particles. SuperIso then computes the most constraining flavor physics observables and the muon (g - 2). SuperIso is able to perform the calculations in different supersymmetry breaking scenarios, such as mSUGRA, NUHM, AMSB and GMSB.

Reasons for new version:
This new version incorporates the calculation of several additional observables, and the inclusive branching ratio of bsγ is now computed at NNLO accuracy for the Standard Model. The implemented routines are therefore extensively modified.

Summary of revisions:
  • Compatibility with the SLHA2 input file format
  • Implementation of the automatic calculation in the NUHM scenario using SOFTSUSY
  • Implementation of the calculation of the muon anomalous magnetic moment
  • Implementation of observables related to leptonic and semi-leptonic B meson decays
  • Implementation of observables related to K meson decays
  • Improvement of the calculations of the branching ratio of bsγ (now at NNLO accuracy) and the isospin asymmetry of BK
  • Update of parameters to their latest values

Unusual features:
The code is very modular, and new routines for calculating new observables can be easily added.
