Minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM)

Input- and output-files for the MSSM benchmark scenarios
as defined in

Discovery of a Higgs-like Particle

are given in the tables below (to be used with Version ≥ 1.0.4).

Our input involves A_t, A_b and A_τ instead of X_t.
If the variables μ and/or tan(β) are thus changed, please adjust A_t, A_b (and A_τ) according to
A_t = A_b (= A_τ) = X_t + μ / tan(β).
The values of X_t are provided in the tables.

Inspired by

Abdelhak Djouadi, Jeremie Quevillon
you may find a bunch of input files in the M_A-tan(β) plane for a high scale SUSY spectrum
compatible with the light Higgs at 125GeV in zipped form here.
It is named 'lowtanb' scenario and the file names contain the values of M_A and tan(β)*10.
