Abstract

Many models possess unwanted relics, which should be diluted by entropy production just before the big-bang nucleosynthesis. A field responsible for the entropy production may produce stable weakly interacting massive particles, if kinematically accessible. We compute their relic abundances by integrating out coupled equations numerically. Applying our results to supersymmetric standard models, we argue that the neutralino lightest superparticles will overdose the universe in most of the parameter space if the reheat temperature is of the order of 10 MeV.
