We examine a well-motivated nonuniversal supergravity model where the Higgs boson masses are not unified with the other scalars at the grand unified scale at the LHC. The dark matter content can easily be satisfied in this model by having a larger Higgsino component in the lightest neutralino. Typical final states in such a scenario at the LHC involve W bosons. We develop a bi-event subtraction technique to reduce a huge combinatorial background to identify W→jj decays. This is also a key technique to reconstruct supersymmetric particle masses in order to determine the model parameters. With the model parameters, we find that the dark matter content of the Universe can be determined in agreement with existing experimental results. © 2010 The American Physical Society.
