MSEL = 39-45
ISUB = 201-296 (see tables at the beginning of this chapter)

PYTHIA includes the possibility of simulating a large variety of production and decay processes in the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM). The simulation is based on an effective Lagrangian of softly-broken SUSY with parameters defined at the weak scale, typically between $m_{\mathrm{Z}}$ and 1 TeV. The relevant parameters should either be supplied directly by the user or they should be read in from a SUSY Les Houches Accord (SLHA) spectrum file [Ska03] (see below). Some other possibilities for obtaining the SUSY parameters also exist in the code, as described below, but these are only intended for backwards compatibility and debugging purposes.
