Supersymmetry vis-a-vis Muon Colliders

Abstract

The potential of muon colliders to study a low-energy supersymmetry is addressed in the framework of the minimal supergravity model, whose predictions are first briefly surveyed. Foremost among the unique features of a muon collider is s-channel production of Higgs bosons, by which Higgs boson masses, widths, and couplings can be precisely measured to test the predictions of supersymmetry. Measurements of the threshold region cross sections of W^+ W^-, t t-bar, Zh, chargino pairs, slepton and sneutrino pairs will precisely determine the corresponding masses and test supersymmetric radiative corrections. At the high-energy frontier a 3 to 4 TeV muon collider is ideally suited to study heavy scalar supersymmetric particles.Comment: 14 pages, Latex2.09, uses aipproc.sty and espf.sty. 10 postscript figures.
