LHC early constraints on SUSY


The first analyses of the impact of early LHC data on the parameter space of Supersymmetry (SUSY) have been presented at several winter conferences.

The results the ATLAS and CMS papers have been recently posted on the arXiv (here and here), and they are actually based on 35 pb-1 of LHC data at 7 TeV.

A good discussion of their impact on SUSY can be found in the blogosphere at Resonaances and in Tommaso Dorigo’s blog. For technical discussions see also the papers of A. Strumia and B. Allanach.

Looks like the moment of truth is coming for SUSY, and more in general for WIMP Dark Matter.
