# Bayesian approach and naturalness in MSSM analyses for the LHC

@article{Cabrera2009BayesianAA, title={Bayesian approach and naturalness in MSSM analyses for the LHC}, author={Maria Eugenia Cabrera and J. Alberto Casas and R. Ruiz de Austri}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2009}, volume={2009}, pages={075-075} }

The start of LHC has motivated an effort to determine the relative probability of the different regions of the MSSM parameter space, taking into account the present, theoretical and experimental, wisdom about the model. Since the present experimental data are not powerful enough to select a small region of the MSSM parameter space, the choice of a judicious prior probability for the parameters becomes most relevant. Previous studies have proposed theoretical priors that incorporate some… Expand
