Does the new version supersede the previous version?: No (AEAN_v2_0)

Nature of problem:
Calculation of the lightest supersymmetric particle relic density, as well as flavor physics observables, in order to derive constraints on the supersymmetric parameter space.

Solution method:
SuperIso Relic 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 Relic then computes the lightest supersymmetric particle relic density as well as the most constraining flavor physics observables. To do so, it calculates first the widths of the Higgs bosons with FeynHiggs, and then it evaluates the squared amplitudes of the diagrams needed for the relic density calculation. These thousands of diagrams have been previously generated with the FeynArts/FormCalc package. SuperIso Relic is able to perform the calculations in different supersymmetry breaking scenarios, such as mSUGRA, NUHM, AMSB and GMSB.

Reasons for new version:
This version incorporates the calculation of the relic density, which is often used to constrain Supersymmetry.

Summary of revisions:
  • Addition of the relic density calculation
  • Replacement of "float" type by "double".

Unusual features:
SuperIso Relic includes the possibility of altering the underlying cosmological model and testing the influence of the cosmological assumptions.

Additional comments:
This program is closely associated with the "SuperIso" program - CPC Program Library, Catalogue Id. AEAN.

Running time:
Compilation time: a couple of hours for the statically linked version, a few minutes for the dynamically linked version Running time: about 1 second, or a few seconds if libraries need to be compiled on the fly.
