In science:

The excluded regions where mχ > m ˜τ1 have dark (red) shading, those excluded by b → sγ have medium (green) shading, and those where the relic density of neutralinos lies within the WMAP range 0.094 ≤ Ωχh2 ≤ 0.129 have light (turquoise) shading.
Dark Matter Candidates in Supersymmetric Models
In each panel, we show the regions excluded by the LEP lower limits on MSSM particles, those ruled out by b → sγ decay (medium green shading), and those excluded because the LSP would be charged (dark red shading).
Dark Matter Candidates in Supersymmetric Models
The spread of the dark (red) squares and medium-shaded (green) crosses, by as much as 500 GeV or more in some cases, reflects the maximum mass splitting between the LVSP and the NLVSP that is induced in the CMSSM via renormalization effects on the input mass parameters.
Dark Matter Candidates in Supersymmetric Models
Comparing with the regions populated by dark (red) squares and medium-shaded (green) crosses, one can see which of these models would be detectable at the LHC, according to the criterion in the previous paragraph.
Dark Matter Candidates in Supersymmetric Models
For comparison, the dark (red) squares and medium-shaded (green) crosses respect the laboratory constraints, but not those imposed by astrophysics and cosmology.
