Abstract

We are utilizing the program SOFTSUSY (based on the minimal supersymmetric standard model (mssm)) for dark sector analysis of dark photons. We have automated the external program with Python to give us cross-sections of dark photons while also automating the C++ graphing program to plot these data points. The two variables that are changed throughout automation are the m0 (unified soft scalar mass) and m12 (unified soft gaugino mass) variables. This allows us to continue researching potential cross sections for lepton-jet production in the SUSY portal as well as further researching supersymmetry-dark sector connections. With streamlined automation, we can also explore other variables that can affect the cross-sections calculated by the Monte Carlo simulation.
