The recent measurement of (Formula presented) by the E821 Collaboration at Brookhaven deviates from the quoted standard model (SM) central value prediction by (Formula presented) The difference between SM theory and experiment may be easily accounted for in a variety of particle physics models employing weak scale supersymmetry (SUSY). Other supersymmetric models are distinctly disfavored. We evaluate (Formula presented) for various supersymmetric models, including minimal supergravity, Yukawa unified (Formula presented) SUSY GUT’s, models with inverted mass hierarchies, models with nonuniversal gaugino masses, gauge mediated SUSY breaking models, anomaly-mediated SUSY breaking models and models with gaugino mediated SUSY breaking. Models with Yukawa coupling unification or multi-TeV first and second generation scalars are disfavored by the (Formula presented) measurement.
