Abstract
Giving up the assumption of the gaugino mass unification at the GUT scale. the latest LEP and Tevatron data still allow the lightest supersymmetric Hi ggs to have a large branching fraction into invisible neutralinos. Such a H iggs may be difficult to discover at the LHC and is practically unreachable at the Tevatron. We argue that, for some of these models to be compatible with the relic density, light sleptons with masses not fax above the curren t limits are needed. There are, however, models that allow for larger slept ons masses without being in conflict with the relic density constraint. Thi s is possible because these neutralinos can annihilate efficiently through a Z pole. We also find that many of these models can nicely account, at the 2 sigma level, for the discrepancy in the latest g - 2 measurement. Howeve r, requiring consistency with the g - 2 at the la level, excludes models th at lead to the largest Higgs branching fraction into LSP's. In all cases on e expects that even though the Higgs might escape detection, one would have a rich SUSY phenomenology even at the Tevatron, through the production of charginos and neutralinos.
