Mass Eigenstates/Neutralinos
 
Hi, not really sure where to post this.

I understand that the neutralino is supposed to be a linear superposition of mass eigenstates of various supersymmetric particles. Despite this, I'm actually having a hard time picturing what it means.

The neutralino is a particle in itself, yet it is a superposition of several others? What is the physical meaning of this?

And what does it change if a certain one of the sparticles is more dominant than another?

Cheers
