The Status of Supersymmetry Searches

A new preprint has appeared on the arXiv detailing the current status of searches for supersymmetry in light of the results from¬†LHC Run 1. The preprint appears to be a chapter from a recent review of Run 1. The authors go over the various results that potentially relate to SUSY searches and what they mean for theory. In short, while SUSY hasn’t been found,, there are still plenty of ways to fit SUSY into current data. The constrained MSSM, which is the most common benchmark model for SUSY, is basically totally ruled out at this point.
